Quandre Diggs named one of the NFL’s Top Safeties for 2022 by TD Wire
On Tuesday, Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar released his list of the NFL’s top safeties heading into the 2022 season and Quandre Diggs of the Seattle Seahawks came in 9th overall.
“Last season, only Trevon Moehrig of the Raiders played more snaps at free safety (1,116) than Diggs’ 1,078,” Farrar wrote. “When you’re on a team that plays a lot of singles coverage (like the Seahawks do), and your safety is questionable in coverage (like Jamal Adams), that’s a lot of responsibility. Diggs was fine with that, allowing 21 catches on 30 targets for 251 yards, 67 yards after the catch, two touchdowns, five interceptions and an opposing passer rating of 77.9.

“The Seahawks, who originally picked up Diggs from the Lions in a 2019 trade that can only be seen in retrospect as comically bad for Detroit, finally made Diggs somewhat whole in March with a new $40 million contract on three years, including $27 million guaranteed. “Farrar continues. “That puts Diggs in pretty good financial company among NFL safeties, although Jamal Adams’ contract is a comparative black eye. Without Diggs, the Seattle high school would have had very little to do in 2021. It could also be the case in 2022.”
