Ziggy Ansah is among the pass rushers the Seahawks could consider Phil Haynes Jersey , and now the Seahawks are taking a look.Ansah is in Seattle today visiting the Seahawks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.After trading away Frank Clark, who led the team in sacks last season Ugo Amadi Jersey , the Seahawks would like to upgrade at the position. Ansah could fit the bill.The Seahawks would likely wait until after May 7 to sign Ansah, because signing him before then would count against them in the compensatory pick formula. Seattle is currently expected to get third-, fourth- Dwayne Haskins Jersey , sixth- and seventh-round compensatory picks, but that would change if they signed Ansah before the deadline.Ansah is recovering from a shoulder injury and managed just four sacks last year. But he had 12 sacks in 2017, and if he’s healthy in 2019 he could be due for a bounce back. He could end up being a good addition at a reasonable price for Seattle D.K. Metcalf Jersey , or some other team. The Panthers have hired a new wide receivers coach.Jim Hostler is the latest addition to Ron Rivera’s staff in Carolina. He replaces Lance Taylor, who spent the last two seasons with the team.Hostler spent last season as the passing game coordinator with the Packers and has been a wide receivers coach for various NFL teams over the last two decades. That included a stint with the Ravens when he worked with current Panthers wideout Torrey Smith.“I’m excited about the group. I studied DJ Moore last year when he was coming out. He was high on my list and I’m excited to work with him,” Hostler said in a statement. “I’ve watched tape of Curtis Samuel and he’s got a lot of skill. Hell of an athlete. And obviously I worked with Torrey in the past. I like the balance of young guys and veterans. Looking forward to working with all of them.”The Panthers have also hired defensive backs coach Perry Fewell and lost assistant special teams coach Heath Farwell since the end of their season.
