The 2019 season is the Seattle Seahawks' 44th in the National Football League and their 10th under head coach Pete Carroll. It will also mark their first full season since 1996 without the ownership of the late Paul Allen, who died during the 2018 season.

For the first time since 2009, Earl Thomas did not play for the Seahawks as he signed with the Baltimore Ravens via free agency during the offseason. Thomas was the last remaining original member of the Legion of Boom defensive secondary. This is also the first time since 2010 without wide receiver Doug Baldwin, as he was released from the team after a failed physical designation along with strong safety Kam Chancellor. Baldwin announced his retirement three days later.

On October 3, 2019, Seahawks owner Paul Allen was posthumously inducted into the Seahawks Ring of Honor before a 30–29 home victory against the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football.[1]
