Veteran DB DeShawn Shead provides playmaking for...


Seattle Seahawks defensive back DeShawn Shead is having a solid preseason at the halfway mark and looks to make the 53-man roster and gain another chance to prove himself to the organization.

In both preseason games thus far, Shead has made a significant play for the team. In the game against the Broncos, Shead recorded a safety to make the score 15-6 in favor of the Seahawks and give them the ball. During Sunday’s game against the Vikings, Shead picked off a Sean Mannion pass deep in Seattle territory and took it to the house to give the Seahawks a 10-3 lead.

The Seahawks will need playmaking and versatility from their secondary now that the last remnants of the Legion of Boom have faded. Shead has provided that this summer and it could translate to the regular season. The veteran defensive back has also expressed how glad he is to be back in Seattle and the team is clearly happy to have him.

Shead has six years of prior experience with the Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll, signing with Seattle as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and staying with the team until he hit free agency in 2018. After an unproductive year with the Lions, in which he only recorded 13 tackles and a forced fumble in 12 games, Shead hit free agency again and chose to return to the Emerald City.

With his preseason performances and veteran experience with Carroll, Shead is making a strong case to make the final 53-man roster in September.
