Cody Barton sees puzzle pieces fitting together for Seahawks defense – Seahawks Wire

The Seattle Seahawks wrapped up their mock game over the weekend and all eyes are now looking ahead to the first game of the preseason. Inching closer to the real deal, linebacker Cody Barton was asked about the changes he’s seen in the defense under new defensive coordinator, Clint Hurtt.
“I would say the difference is, and I can speak just for the defensive side, obviously, feel wise, there’s an energy about this team,” Barton told reporters after Sunday’s walkthrough. “I’m sure you guys have heard it already. The energy throughout the team, and especially on defense, is just different. Guys are excited, guys are hungry, and we just want to compete, and go out there and just prove ourselves.”
Barton is now entering his fourth season in the league, originally selected by the Seahawks in the 2019 NFL draft out of Utah. He is also embracing a much larger role on the field, having grown from mostly special teams to a starting spot with the linebackers. He sees the overall changes in the team as well.

“If you look at the game, imagine it’s like a puzzle, all the pieces have to fit together,” Barton explained. “The D-line has to work with the linebackers, the linebackers have to work with the DBs, so it’s all going to work together. I wouldn’t say there’s just one focal point, I would say it’s just a whole defensive thing.”
The Seahawks return to the practice field on Tuesday to begin to prepare to face the Steelers on Saturday, Aug. 13.
