Gareon Conley – Oakland Raiders

This six foot, 195-pound cornerback from the Oakland Raiders would be a terrific compliment to Seattle’s Shaquille Griffin. Gareon Conley has some of the same attributes as former Legion member Brandon Browner. Specifically, Conley can keep up with some of the league’s best receivers, like Browner did when he played for the Seahawks. Additionally, he has the ability to fight for 50/50 balls and come away with a few interceptions.

Janoris Jenkins – New York Giants

Janoris Jenkins is the talented cornerback for the New York Football Giants. During his NFL career, he has shown he can play in several defensive schemes. The “Jackrabbit” plays against the opponents best receiver in New York. He can line up against the slot receiver or include him in some blitz packages. Jenkins has great ability in the defensive backfield but has also had some disciplinary issues as well. Seattle might be the right fit for Jenkins.

Trumaine Johnson – New York Jets

The six-foot, two-inch, 213-pound corner has good size on the outside. So far Trumaine Johnson has had a good career in the NFL. Quarterbacks have a hard time throwing to his side of the field. In the Jets defensive schemes, he often plays in man-to-man coverage. This is somewhat of the same system that the Seahawks run most of the time.

With Johnson on the opposite side as Griffin and a young safety group, his leadership in the locker room can pay dividends when it comes to on the field play. He can also be an asset on corner blitzes. If Seattle were to make a trade with the Jets for Johnson, they will not be disappointed with the decision.
