Lynch could end up being a candidate to be signed to the Seahawks’ practice squad should he pass through waivers unclaimed.

Brown, 28, wound up signing on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson back in 2013. He played out his rookie contract before returning to the Cardinals on a one-year restricted tender worth $1.671 million back in 2016.

The Cardinals later signed Brown to a one-year extension towards the end of the 2016 season. Brown signed with the Seahawks as an unrestricted free agent in 2018. 

In 2018, Brown appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and caught 14 passes for 166vyards receiving and five touchdowns.

Lynch, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2016. He was in the third year of his four-year, $9.4 million contract when the Broncos waived him coming out of the preseason last year. 

Lynch worked out for several teams before eventually signing a futures contract with the Seahawks in January. 

In 2017, Lynch appeared in two games for the Broncos and completed 66.7 percent of his passes to go along with two touchdowns and three interceptions. He also rushed for 30 yards.

Marsh, 26, is a former fourth-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2014 NFL Draft. The Seahawks traded Marsh to the Patriots for fifth- and seventh-round picks in 2017 but he was waived in November and later claimed off of waivers by the 49ers.

Marsh played out the final year of his rookie contract before returning to the 49ers on a two-year deal worth a base value of $7.7 million last year. San Francisco cut him loose last month. 

In 2018, Marsh appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 38 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery.
