S - Seattle Seahawks
Quandre Diggs and the Seahawks have agreed to a restructured contract, converting his 2023 salary into a bonus.
Diggs reported the news on Twitter himself and the move is the second contractual move made by the Seahawks in the last few days. The move should free up some cap space ahead of the 2023 season.
Quandre Diggs agreed to a three-year, $40 million contract to remain with the Seahawks.
The free safety made the Pro Bowl in each of the last two seasons. In his career, he has tallied 19 interceptions with 414 tackles. In 2021, he allowed only one touchdown catch in 44 targets.
Quandre Diggs is expected to be fully cleared from his ankle injury for all football activities in June.
Diggs suffered a broken fibula and dislocated ankle in Week 18, and underwent surgery in January. He has expressed interest in staying in Seattle. There is a chance the Seahawks place the franchise tag on him, potentially even to extend the time for the two sides to come to an agreement on a contract extension.
Seattle Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs has is officially inactive for Sunday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers.
Diggs has been an impact player for the Seahawks since coming over in a surprising trade from the Detroit Lions. His absence represents an upgrade for George Kittle. Deebo Samuel and Emmanuel Sanders also see their ceilings get a bump.
Quandre Diggs ended Sunday’s 28-12 loss to the Rams with two interceptions, five tackles, and one touchdown.
Diggs has 13 tackles, one forced fumbles, and three interceptions since being traded to the Seahawks. He has a chance to add another pick in Week 15 (Panthers) and Week 16 (Cardinals).
