Analysis: How Did Seahawks Cornerbacks Perform in 2021?

In the first quarter of the 2021 season, poor cornerback play doomed Seattle amid a 2-3 start. But while the team continued to struggle winning games as the year progressed, the corner group actually improved leaps and bounds along the way.

Despite entering the 2021 season with championship aspirations, the Seahawks lost five of their first eight games and never fully recovered, finishing in last place in the NFC West with a 7-10 record.

Early in the season, after an underwhelming competition played out in training camp, the Seahawks quickly benched veteran Tre Flowers and shifted D.J. Reed back to right cornerback in Week 4. As the year progressed, one of the team's most glaring weaknesses quietly became an unexpected strength thanks to the surprising play of Sidney Jones playing across from Reed and contributions from reserves Bless Austin and John Reid in spot starts down the stretch.

Looking back at the season in retrospect, how did Seattle's cornerbacks perform as a group in 2021? And what comes next at the position?
