Doyle Edgell Returns to Seattle
All Time Leading Seahawks Receiver
The Seattle Seahawks are pleased to announce that all-time leading Seahawks receiver Doyle Edgell will return after a trade was finalized with the Washington Redskins. Edgell now thirty-two had spent his first eight seasons in the RZL after the Seahawks drafted him 22nd overall back in 2013. Since his departure he has spent time with Tampa Bay, Cincinnati, Miami and most recently Washington.
Edgell was a fan favourite of the Seahawks fans and they were left shocked when he was traded away in 2021. But the fans will be excited to see the famous number eighty-one return for the Seahawks as early as this week.
"I am extremely excited and thankful to be returning to Seattle. I enjoyed my eight seasons here and although I have enjoyed the past few years I get the chance to wear the Seahawks uniform again and hopefully finish my career here. Watching them win the Super Bowl last year was amazing, to see how far this team has come. My opportunities have been limited this year but after speaking with Coach Davis, I think I will really be able to contribute this year and help with the playoff push." Seahawks Wide Receiver Doyle Edgell.
"Doyle is a true professional and when we were searching for a veteran wide out he was the first guy we asked about. The fans are going to get a real kick out of seeing him back on the field." Seahawks GM Kurt Ison.
Edgell is currently the 32nd overall in RZL reception yards. The Seahawks agreed to send their fourth round pick along with Wide Receiver T.J. Jackson. The former fourth round pick has spent his entire six year career in Seattle where he featured predominantly as a Kick Returner.
