1. Seattle Seahawks

It's a tale as old as time. A hot new assistant coach (in this case, former Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald) joins a new team as head coach, and he wants to populate his roster and coaching staff with familiar faces. This could make for a Queen reunion in the Pacific Northwest.

Bobby Wagner is more of a name than a high-end linebacker in 2024, and Jordyn Brooks is also a free agent. Macdonald's scheme can be a bit complex for a young Seattle defense, and getting Queen right in the middle could be one way to help the defense maintain the shape it showed in Baltimore.

Seattle is currently over the cap and will need to subtract to get the money needed to pay Queen, but Macdonald could make a compelling case to John Schneider that he needs one of his top former players to install the defensive vision he was hired to execute.

Queen is always going to be the No. 2 in Baltimore, as the emergence of Roquan Smith as arguably the best linebacker in the AFC will make him more of a supplementary piece. Not only could Seattle give him the money he wants, but he could have an expanded role.
