After a year with the Raiders last season, linebacker K.J. Wright hopes to return to his former club, the Seattle Seahawks, this season.
“I want to go home,” Wright said on the radio show. “It’s as simple as that in my opinion. The Seahawks know I want to go back. They know how important the Seahawks are to me.”
In an interview on Sunday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, “I love K.J.. I’ve talked to him about the future. He did say he wants to play, and we’ve talked about that. .”
The 32-year-old Wright played for the Seahawks for ten years and made two Super Bowls with the team, winning once. In 2021, Wright signed a one-year $3.5 million contract with the Raiders, played 17 games, started 8 of them, and completed 51 tackles.
The Seahawks are currently expected to have Jordyn Brooks and Cody Barton as the starting linebackers.
