RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Irvin joins the Raiders after spending his first four seasons in the league with the Seahawks. The 28-year-old plays with a ballhawking mentality, boasting 22 sacks, four forced fumbles, three interceptions, two defensive touchdowns, and two fumble recoveries in 58 career games to date. He'll team up with Malcolm Smith and Khalil Mack to form one of the nastiest pass-rushing defenses in the league, making him late-round option in deep IDP leagues.

2015

This is likely Irvin's last year in Seattle. The Seahawks declined to pick up his $7.8 million fifth-year option, which sent Irvin to Twitter to profanely express his disappointment. While he is probably the best pure athlete on a team blessed with great speed and quickness, he hasn't come close to living up to his status as the 15th overall draft pick in 2012. He's best as a situational pass rusher rather than an every-down strongside linebacker, where he totaled only 38 tackles last year (he added 6.5 sacks and two interceptions). But, Irvin's contract status is not just about performance -- he's also a victim of the salary cap. After investing in Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright, the Seahawks simply don't have cap room for another high-priced linebacker. Because of his freak athletic ability, he'll likely get paid next year in free agency, but by a team other than the Seahawks.

2014

A 2012 first-round pick, Irvin appears to be a man without a position. He's at his best rushing the quarterback, but he's too small to play the run, which limits his snaps. The Seahawks moved him to OLB last season to keep him on the field more, but he was a bit overmatched, only keeping up thanks to his elite speed and athleticism. He's expected to need most of training camp to recover from hip surgery and could start the year on the PUP list. This is could be his last year in Seattle if the Seahawks need his (albeit relatively small) cap space next season.

2013

Irvin set a Seahawks rookie record with eight sacks last season and
