As he heads into free agency, Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson will first have to take care of a broken foot, which he suffered in the team’s loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round.
“I think he broke his foot,” coach Pete Carroll said on Monday. “I think it’s the bone on the outside of his foot. He’s going to have to have surgery on that.”
Jefferson was a key contributor to Seattle’s depleted defensive front in 2019, appearing in 14 games and recording 26 combined tackles, 3.5 sacks, three passes defended and one fumble recovery.
