With Shane Waldron leaving the Seattle Seahawks, it will be interesting to see what happens with a lot of the free-agent names on the offense. The team may look in different directions, and a lot of them could move. The Chicago Bears would be a perfect fit, considering these players are familiar with Shane Waldron. Which players from the Seahawks could be obvious signings this offseason?

6. The Seattle Seahawks have two free-agent tight ends that the Chicago Bears should have eyes on 

The Chicago Bears are going to need some help at tight end. Both Marcedes Lewis and Robert Tonyan are free agents, and considering they both came here to follow Luke Getsy, it is hard to see either returning this year. So, why not have a Seahawks tight end replace them?

Noah Fant would be a fun addition to the offense. He has not lived up to his first-round pedigree, but he has shown a pass catching ability that would be an upgrade from Robert Tonyan. Still, he probably has higher sights than a Tonyan replacement, and it is not like Waldron got the most out of him. 

On the flip side, Parkinson is coming off of the two best years of his career, and he saw real development under Waldron. He has a solid combination of pass-catching and blocking ability that would make him an ideal backup behind Cole Kmet. His price should also be more in line with what the Bears want to spend for a backup. 

Keep an eye on Colby Parkinson, who would be a great fit in free agency.
