Anytime there are coaching changes in the NFL, it's reasonable to expect players to follow some of the coaches that get hired around the NFL. With Dan Quinn potentially on his way to take over the Seattle Seahawks, he's got no shortage of potential free agents to bring with him from his last handful of years with the Dallas Cowboys.

In the NFL, these types of connections matter. Although the Seahawks haven't veered too far off of the path that was set by Dan Quinn since the "Legion of Boom" days, it's still helpful to have that familiarity between coach and player personnel.

And agents feast on these kinds of opportunities for their players every single year. Who are some players that could follow Dan Quinn from Dallas to Seattle in 2024?

1. Stephon Gilmore, CB

The Dallas Cowboys were able to get Stephon Gilmore in a trade last offseason with the Indianapolis Colts for just a late-round pick, and it turned out to be a great move for Dallas. Gilmore ended up allowing a completion rate into his coverage under 56 percent, starting every single game for Dallas and finishing with 13 passes defensed and two interceptions.

Gilmore is the type of veteran you want to have around at such a crucial position, and he's still playing at an exceptionally high level. Having Stephon Gilmore join the duo of Tariq Woolen and Devon Witherspoon in this Seattle defense? That would be dangerous.
