RENTON, Wash. (AP) — K.J. Wright might be one of the biggest surprises in Seattle’s starting lineup for Sunday’s opener against Atlanta, which is saying something considering he’s currently the longest-tenured Seahawks player and about to begin his 10th NFL season. But this was an offseason of challenges for Wright. His contract made him an option to be cut if Seattle needed to save money. He had shoulder surgery. Seattle also drafted Jordyn Brooks in the first round as Wright's heir apparent. But Wright recovered from surgery ahead of schedule and is listed as the starter against the Falcons.
