RENTON Brandon Marshall Color Rush Jersey , Wash. (AP) — The Seahawks may turn to a corner-by-committee strategy to replace Justin Coleman as their nickel back this season.Coleman signed a four-year deal with the Detroit Lions in free agency after serving as Seattle’s slot cornerback for the last two seasons. He had played more than two-thirds of the team’s defensive snaps in 2018 as the Seahawks used more five and six defensive back packages.Now the Seahawks don’t have a single clear option to take over the role. Instead, they have four different cornerbacks vying for the job heading into the second preseason game. Akeem King, Kalan Reed, Jamar Taylor and fourth-round pick Ugo Amadi have all had a chance to show what they can do during training camp.“Kalan Reed did a nice job in the game, Ugo Amadi did a nice job in the game, too, in the plays that he had, and we know that Jamar Taylor and Akeem King can play there,” coach Pete Carroll said. “So, we’ve got four guys that it’s kind of hard to get their reps right, right now.”Carroll indicated the job could be filled by having interchangeable pieces on a weekly basis instead of one guy in the spot full-time.“There’s reasons for having multiple guys,” Carroll said.King was used occasionally in the role last season against bigger slot receivers. He was called upon to match up with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce in Week 16. But while King may be the right fit to match up against Kelce or bigger receivers such as Larry Fitzgerald Cortez Kennedy Color Rush Jersey , Reed, Taylor or Amadi may be better at covering shiftier players like Tyreek Hill or Taylor Gabriel.King and Amadi appear to be locks for the roster while Taylor, a six-year veteran, and Reed try to show they deserve spots as well.“I think it’s harder for the coaches to find reps,” Taylor said. “I think it’s hard for those guys to figure out how they want to do it. For us, it’s friendly competition. I know I’m the oldest of the group so I’m always trying to help those guys figure things out. If I’m here and I’m playing, great. If I’m not, then I know I left it better than I found it and those guys will be ready to roll.”Reed has been working with the first-team defense in practice recently and could get the nod again in the team’s second preseason game against Minnesota on Sunday. He was the first off the bench when Seattle went to five defensive backs against the Denver Broncos on Thursday. He spent a chunk of last season on the team’s practice squad before being promoted to the active roster late in the year.“Just sitting out last year I was ready to hit somebody so it was exciting,” said Reed, who did not dress for a game last season. “Your time is going to come so you’ve just got to ready when your number is called. Game day was fun finally getting a chance to strap it up again and hit someone on another team.” It’s been nearly two-and-a-half years since Seahawks defensive back Deshawn Shead sustained a torn ACL in a playoff loss to the Atlanta Falcons. After re-signing with Seattle on Saturday following a year with the Detroit Lions, Shead says his knee finally feels back to 100 percent.“Man, I feel night and day better Shaun Alexander Color Rush Jersey ,” Shead said. “From even over a year ago. Starting at the beginning of last season my knee was still kind of, I would get kind of sore after practice, or you could see the limitations during the game. It wasn’t until later on in the season last year to where I started to feel normal again. And this offseason I actually got to train instead of rehab. There’s a big difference.”Shead appeared in only two games for the Seahawks in 2017 while coming back from the injury. He spent the first three-plus months of the season on the physically unable to perform list before returning for the last two games of the year. Due to the extended stay on the PUP list, Shead’s contract tolled for the 2018 season, meaning he would remain under contract with Seattle for the following year despite only having signed a one-year deal to remain with the team the year before. Instead, the Seahawks released him to allow him the shot he should have had at free agency.“For them to be able to release me and have an opportunity to go out there and look for a contract was actually a sign of respect so I definitely respected that,” Shead said.Shead signed a one-year deal with the Lions and appeared in 12 games for the team last season. However, the knee continued to be a nagging annoyance until the latter stages of the season. It’s something he now believes to finally be in the rear-view mirror.“I do feel all the way back, I don’t think twice about my knee, my breaks, in and out of breaks, I’m more elusive Jarran Reed Color Rush Jersey , my speed is back. So, now it’s just putting it back on the field, putting it back on the field, getting back to it, and do what I know,” Shead said.Added head coach Pete Carroll: “He came out here on the field the other day and he looked great, he looked as good as he’s ever looked. Quick and strong and fit and in shape. … I’m thrilled that he’s back with us and thrilled for him that he was able to get back physically, because he had a serious injury that he played with but only late in the year did he start to pop out of it and really start to gain some confidence that he could do stuff in a normal fashion.”
