  Seahawks | Mohammed Seisay acquired from DET    Sun Aug 2, 02:50 PM

The Seattle Seahawks have acquired CB Mohammed Seisay from the Detroit Lions, in exchange for an undisclosed 2016 draft pick.

Footballguys view: An undrafted free agent in 2014, Seisay is a big, phyisical corner with good short-area quickness. That sounds like a perfect fit for the Seahawks. With both Jeremy Lane (knee, arm) and Tharold Simon (shoulder) on PUP, Seattle needed help at the position.

  Seahawks | Tony McDaniel released    Sun Aug 2, 12:09 PM

The Seattle Seahawks released DT Tony McDaniel Sunday, Aug. 2. McDaniel should quickly find a new home.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks had to clear some cap room after signing both Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner to extensions. Due $3 million in salary and bonuses, McDaniel was set to be a free agent in 2016. Still capable of playing at a high level, McDaniel should latch on with a new team quickly.

  Seahawks | Paul Richardson placed on PUP list    Fri Jul 31, 07:13 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 31.

Footballguys view: We love Richardson's natural ability, but he may never be the same after this knee injury. Richardson injured his knee twice in college at Colorado. He may lose explosiveness after his recovery, and that's a big part of his game.

  Seahawks | Kam Chancellor does not report    Fri Jul 31, 06:35 PM

Seattle Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor was placed on the Reserve/Did Not Report list Friday, July 31.

Footballguys view: Well, it seems to be an official holdout now for Chancellor. The veteran safety may want a bump in pay, but he's facing $30,000 per day fine for missing camp.

  Seahawks | Robert Turbin returns to field    Fri Jul 31, 04:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Robert Turbin (hip) participated in practice Friday, July 31. Turbin did not participate in offseason workouts, because he was recovering from hip surgery.

Footballguys view: Turbin is trying to make the roster in a crowded backfield. He's trying to win the primary backup job over guys like Christine Michael and Thomas Rawls.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson's contract extended    Fri Jul 31, 09:52 AM

Updating an ongoing story, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $87.6 million. He'll receive $21 million in signing bonus money and $60 million guaranteed in total.

Footballguys view: Now Wilson is signed through his age-31 season (2019). This contract is not as long-term as other quarterbacks get, but Wilson will be able to snare another big-money deal if he keeps playing well--or elevates his game.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson may not receive new deal    Thu Jul 30, 01:54 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is talking with the Seahawks about a contract extension, but the two sides may not reach an agreement before the start of training camp, according to sources. The two sides do not appear to be in agreement about the amount of money up front or the guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: The two sides seem to be far apart at this time, but there's really no hurry. Wilson can get the franchise tag next offseason if no new deal is in place.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson's contract being negotiated    Mon Jul 27, 03:44 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and his representatives have issues with the guaranteed money involved in his current offer. Still, Wilson hasn't turned the deal down yet. If both sides don't agree to a new deal soon, Wilson and the Seahawks will have to wait until after the season to try to get a deal done.

Footballguys view: If things reach that point, expect the Seahawks to use the franchise tag on Wilson. They've built a Super Bowl contender with Wilson making peanuts. Now, they'll have to pay what he's worth. We can't imagine Wilson going to another team in the near future.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson offered a deal?    Sat Jul 25, 03:43 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has supposedly been offered a contract extension that would pay him about $21 million per year. The deal would also include a significant amount of guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: If the two sides can't reach a deal by the start of the regular season, there's a good chance that Seattle puts the franchise tag on Wilson. That would give the Seahawks until mid-July to work out a new long-term deal with their quarterback.

  Seahawks | No progress on Russell Wilson deal?    Thu Jul 23, 09:27 PM

Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner could agree to a long-term deal by the start of training camp, and the team's focus on Wagner's deal could be a sign of little progress with the negotiations for QB Russell Wilson, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Seahawks can get something done with Wilson, but the time will have to be right. There's no reason to predict this contract situation going either way. We'll know more about their desire to keep Wilson in the future.

  Seahawks | Earl Thomas iffy for opener    Thu Jul 23, 12:29 PM

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) isn't expected to be cleared for training camp, and his status is questionable for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Thomas is one of the best in the game when healthy, so expect the Seahawks to proceed with caution as he returns from this injury. He underwent surgery for a torn labrum back in February, and reports indicate there haven't been any setbacks. It's just going to take some time for him to be ready to get back on the field. Stay tuned here.

  Seahawks | Demitrius Bronson waived from IR    Wed Jul 22, 05:59 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Demitrius Bronson (hamstring) was waived from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, July 22.

Footballguys view: UDFA Thomas Rawls has been impressing the team from day one, so if there's a roster spot for a fourth back, he'll be getting it.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants free-agent money    Thu Jul 16, 05:20 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not yet entered free agency, but he does want to be paid like that is the case. He also wants a fully guaranteed contract.

Footballguys view: If a deal does not get done by the time training camp starts, Wilson could very likely be given the franchise tag next season that could be worth around $25 million. Things may not be close at this point, but there's a long way to go.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson, SEA not close on contract    Thu Jul 16, 05:12 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and the organization are still not close in their negotiations on an extension. Negotiations should increase leading up to training camp, but are expected to cease once training camp commences.

Footballguys view: Wilson wants as much money as possible, and the Seahawks want to save a little money. There's plenty of time left as the Seahawks can slap Wilson with the franchise tag next offseason if need be.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson talks may have deadline    Thu Jul 16, 01:16 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has been having contract extension talks with the Seahawks since the beginning of the offseason, but the talks likely will stop once training camp begins.

Footballguys view: This is pretty much common around the league. It's a soft deadline as the two sides can negotiate next offseason if need be. There's a chance the Seahawks could put the franchise tag on Wilson after this season as the negotiatons continue.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson not worried about contract    Wed Jul 15, 08:58 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson reiterated Wednesday, July 15, he's not worried about his looming contract issue. 'I love Seattle, it's a great city,' Wilson continued. 'I'm going to play my butt off every day. That's all I know, and we'll see what happens.' Wilson's rookie contract expires at the end of the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: Contract negotiations between the Seahawks and Wilson seem to be an an impasse right now. We've heard everything from "they'll move on" to "he's going to play baseball" leading up to this point. Let's just pump the brakes on all that. The Seahawks found a franchise quarterback in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft, and they've built a champion in part because of his small price tag. Now, they'll have to pay up to keep him.

  Seahawks | Paul Richardson to be ready by camp?    Tue Jul 14, 03:43 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (knee) could return early in training camp, but is most likely to have a delayed return, according to head coach Pete Carroll, as he continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: We love Richardson's natural ability but fear he may never be able to play up to his full potential. He battled more than one knee injury during his time in college at Colorado. Richardson can fly down the field, and he can make difficult catches seem routine. Yet another knee injury may further rob him of his explosive athleticism.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett impresses    Tue Jul 14, 12:28 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett has impressed with his polished and subtly skilled route running. He's expected to receive a lot of work in camp in the slot and on the outside.

Footballguys view: Lockett is one of our favorite rookie receivers from this class. He makes plays in the open field, and Lockett has incredible quickness with the ball in his hands. Lockett is a fearless receiver who can run routes over the middle, and there's just a dash of Antonio Brown to his game on film. The rookie can also help as a return man. Dynasty owners should already be all over him. Re-draft owners should keep him on the waiver-wire speed dial, or pick him up as a late-round flier in deeper leagues.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham to be used all over    Tue Jul 14, 12:27 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham will be used all over the field with Seattle like he was in New Orleans. 'Yeah, we do that with a lot of our guys. We like to formation and move guys around for different reasons, and Jimmy will be definitely in that mix,' offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. 'It's just another great playmaker. He can stretch the field, catch the ball, big target in the red zone, which will be huge for us. That may be one of the biggest things, just the size we have down there when things start to get tight.'

Footballguys view: This isn't going to be the same old Seahawks passing game. The team is going to still dominate on the ground, but they'll be able to open things up with passes if need be. Graham doesn't have the same upside he did in New Orleans, but he's still likely to be a top-5 fantasy tight end.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch a TD machine    Sat Jul 11, 11:46 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has scored at least 12 touchdowns in four straight seasons, including a career-high 17 last year.

Footballguys view: Lynch is a feature back on a run-heavy/strong defensive team who is an excellent receiver out of the backfield. This is one of the most ideal situations in fantasy football, and have proven year after year that he can maximize it. Consider him one of the safest first-round RB picks this year.

  Seahawks | Robert Turbin could miss Week 1    Mon Jul 6, 02:48 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Robert Turbin (hip) may not be ready to play Week 1 as he continues to recover from hip surgery this offseason.

Footballguys view: This makes the report that Christine Michael is on the roster bubble more dubious and likely to be a ploy to motivate Michael as the Seahawks will need him to play a bigger role until Turbin is ready. UDFA Thomas Rawls will also get a bigger chance to show what he's got in training camp and the preseason.

  Seahawks | Michael on roster bubble?    Sun Jul 5, 07:50 PM

Terry Blount of ESPN reports that it is ""step up or step out" time for RB Christine Michael entering his third year after being a second-round pick in 2013. The Seahawks staff likes UDFA Thomas Rawls according to Blount and he could induce them to trade Michael for a late-round pick.

Footballguys view: The inevitable next question from fantasy leaguers is whether Dallas would trade for Michael? Some familiar with Dallas have said they had Michael off of their board in 2013, and Michael had injuries and character questions that make that seem possible, but those issues didn't stop them from taking chances on other players. Make no mistake, this is a hit to Michael who should have established himself as a coveted future starter, but it could get him a larger opportunity earlier, so his value remains in flux. Robert Turbin and Rawls would probably split the backup work if Michael is not a Seahawks come Week 1.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson hasn't ruled out baseball    Fri Jul 3, 05:18 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he would consider playing professional baseball in addition to professional football if he were traded to the Seattle Mariners.

Footballguys view: There was a time that Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders wowed us with two sport heroics, but with players representing huge investments to their teams now, it's hard to see this happening. It is much more likely that this is just adding intrigue to the contract talks that seem to be stuck at an impasse right now.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson will be ready to play    Tue Jun 30, 02:58 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he will be ready to play this season whether he's making $25 million or $1.5 million. Wilson has expressed his desire to stay in Seattle and added that, when the time comes, he will let his play do the talking.

Footballguys view: If he made $25 million annually, it would be $3 million per year higher than Aaron Rodgers. The quarterback market is about supply and demand--and there's not enough good QBs out there. It may seem outlandish to predict that price tag for Wilson, but the market could bear that out.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett draws praise    Mon Jun 29, 10:05 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett has drawn positive reviews from WR Doug Baldwin, who feels the rookie out of Kansas State is 'going to be an impact player for us right off the bat.'

Footballguys view: You could easily make the argument that Lockett is their best wide receiver. He's lightning quick with the ball in his hands, and Lockett is a threat to score anytime he has the rock. He'll likely begin this season as the team's WR3 behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. Throw in tight end Jimmy Graham (likely their top target), and there might not be enough action on a run-heavy team for Lockett to be fantasy relevant in re-draft leagues. However, as a late-round flier he's a perfect addition. Also, dynasty owners should be grabbing and stashing Lockett whenever possible.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin wants to play special teams    Mon Jun 29, 10:03 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin said Monday, June 29, that he wants to contribute more on special teams. 'I want to help out more so on special teams in terms of on kickoff, punt return blocking, Baldwin said.

Footballguys view: Baldwin is a steady performer for the Seahawks, but he's no more than a WR5/WR6 for fantasy owners in re-draft leagues. We could see him snaring 50 passes with a few touchdowns in 2015. The Seahawks want to run the ball early and often, plus the addition of superstar tight end Jimmy Graham means fewer targets for wide receivers like Baldwin.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants to stay put?    Mon Jun 29, 12:00 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said the goal is to remain in Seattle for 'a really, really long time' when asked about his contract situation at the Russell Wilson Passing Academy Saturday, June 27.

Footballguys view: The reports of "Wilson's outta here" have been quite overblown. Do things seem dire right now in contract negotiations? Yeah, a bit--but things change quickly in the NFL. The Seahawks found a franchise-caliber quarterback in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft, and they've been able to build a champion due to his small salary. Now, it's time to pay up...and we still think Seattle finds a way to keep him around with a new long-term contract.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants guaranteed money    Sat Jun 27, 05:49 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson wants a considerable portion of his next contract to be guaranteed.

Footballguys view: We're still optimistic that something will be done, but keep monitoring this situation. The guaranteed money is considered the biggest stumbling block in Wilson's extension talks, as the league's funding rule requires all money of any future payments to be paid into escrow upon signing.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson looking for big deal    Fri Jun 26, 03:12 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is looking to become the highest-paid player in the league with his next contract, according to sources. Wilson's agent understands that any contract extension Wilson receives will be surpassed by another player in the future.

Footballguys view: This contract situation seems dire at this time, and there's even some out there who think Wilson might move on in 2016. We're not going with that "bold" prediction as we have confidence that the two sides will be able to work something out. Finding a franchise quarterback is difficult, and teams will pay a premium price to keep a guy like Wilson on the roster. Seattle's been able to keep Wilson around on an inexpensive third-rounder's contract. Now, it's time to pay an appropriate price.

  Seahawks | Jermaine Kearse likely for every down    Fri Jun 26, 12:26 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse is likely to be an every-down receiver for the team in 2015. He is a versatile receiver that excels at blocking.

Footballguys view: Kearse may be an every-down player for the Seahawks, but he's not much of a fantasy factor. The Seahawks have added plenty of talent to the weapons in the passing game. Doug Baldwin will start on the outside opposite Kearse, and the team will also feature tight end Jimmy Graham. We also want to see how rookie Tyler Lockett is used in this offense.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson ready to move on?    Tue Jun 23, 02:07 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who is believed to be seeking a five-year deal worth more than $110 million, sounded as if he's ready to move on from the Seahawks if his contract situation isn't resolved. He's in the fourth and final year of his rookie contract that will pay him $2.99 million if he doesn't agree to a new deal. Seattle could place the franchise tag on Wilson next year, which would cost them more than $23 million for 2016.

Footballguys view: Let's pump the brakes on this "ready to move on" talk. Yes, it's a possibility that Wilson is ready to move on....but it's more likely that he's just going through the negotiation process and things are slow right now. We'd be floored if Wilson was not re-upped by the Seahawks.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson won't be distracted    Fri Jun 19, 02:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson won't let the prospect of a long-term deal distract him this season.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson to play with insurance    Tue Jun 16, 04:19 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will play in the final year of his contract with an insurance policy in case he suffers a career-ending injury, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Wilson playing with insurance is not a big deal, in fact it's a wise move for the young quarterback. Reports coming out of Seattle indicate that Wilson and the Seahawks are far apart in negotiations. We have confidence that something will get done as Wilson's play has already helped Seattle become one of the best--if not the best--in the NFL.

  Seahawks | Kasen Williams signed    Fri Jun 12, 08:26 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Kasen Williams (Washington) signed with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, June 12. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Williams worked out for the Seahawks as a tryout player at rookie minicamp and impressed enough to earn a spot. He started his college career out strong for the Huskies with 77 catches for 878 yards as a sophomore. A serious leg injury ended his junior season early, and during his senior season Williams didn't look like his old self. He was undrafted this year, but he could land on the Seahawks practice squad if he continues to impress.

  Seahawks | Tarvaris Jackson agrees to terms    Wed Jun 10, 12:35 PM

Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Seahawks) agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, June 9. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The biggest no-brainer decision in the history of the planet here. Okay, maybe it wasn't THAT obvious, but with only R.J. Archer as the backup behind Russell Wilson, the Seahawks had to do something. Jackson knows the system like the back of his hand and should have no problem winning the QB2 job for Seattle.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said Tuesday, June 9, the hope is that he and the team will agree on a new deal before the start of training camp.

  Seahawks | Tarvaris Jackson could be an option    Fri Jun 5, 06:22 PM

Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Seahawks) could be an option for the Seattle Seahawks if they decide to sign another quarterback this offseason.

Footballguys view: It's surprising the Seahawks only have two quarterbacks (Russell Wilson, R.J. Archer) currently on the roster. During the offseason, most teams regularly carry four quarterbacks and one of those is at least a "camp arm." Jackson is a seasoned pro who doesn't need a ton of reps since he knows the system. The team could bring him in if they feel like Archer isn't getting it done as Wilson's backup.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael's time to shine?    Thu Jun 4, 11:09 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will handle a bulk of the running back duties during the offseason with RB Marshawn Lynch and RB Robert Turbin (hip) expected to see little playing time prior to the regular season. 'This is his time,' head coach Pete Carroll said. 'So we're going to push him in that regard and try to match up with his expectations. He wants to be a front-line back and he has tremendous talent. We'll see how it goes.'

Footballguys view: Michael has a ton of natural talent as a runner--he just needs to stay healthy. His college career at Texas A&M wasn't as productive as it could have been because of a knee injury. During his pro career, Michael has flashed starter's ability as he awaits an opportunity for more playing time. He's tough between the tackles, has pistons for legs and can drive for extra yards after contact.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham has been 'unstoppable' during organized team activities, according to Rob Rang of Scout.com. The Seahawks have already been drawing up plays to capitalize on Graham's talents.

Footballguys view: Unstoppable sounds about right. Graham's presence on this team is going to help open things up in the passing game. The Seahawks are likely to get him the ball as much as possible. Yes, they're still going to run the ball a lot but Graham should be able to finish the year as a top-5 TE1 for fantasy owners.

  Seahawks | B.J. Daniels working as receiver    Tue Jun 2, 11:08 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR B.J. Daniels, formerly a quarterback in college, has been working at wide receiver and kick returner in organized team activities (OTAs). Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell confirmed Tuesday, June 2, that Daniels is a receiver and not a quarterback.

Footballguys view: Daniels was never going to be a quarterback in the pros. However, he does have the athleticism to be dangerous as a runner. Now, he's just got to learn the nuances of running a route and looking in passes. That could prove to be difficult as Daniels tries to latch on as a receiver....likely as a developmental player on the practice squad.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson would play without deal    Tue Jun 2, 05:08 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he's ready to play the 2015 season without a new contract. Wilson desires to stay in Seattle long-term and talks for a new deal have supposedly been positive.

Footballguys view: Wilson has a cap hit in 2015 of a measly (by QB standards) $1.6 million. The Seahawks have been able to build such a strong team because they're not paying their quarterback that much....but that will change soon enough. With Cam Newton signing a deal today with an average annual salary of around $20 million, expect Wilson's deal to best that.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson talks encouraging    Thu May 28, 01:02 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's agent Mark Rodgers said contract negotiations are positive and encouraging, adding there is no deadline to finalize a deal, during an interview with 710 ESPN radio in Seattle. Regarding the reported philosophical differences between the two sides, Rodgers said, '95% of the speculation has been off point.'

Footballguys view: This is interesting to watch, as we knew the chickens would come home to roost for the Seahawks when they finally had to pay Wilson. They are now forced to make some tough choices in order to keep that most precious of resources - the franchise quarterback. Wilson will run a little less this season, but getting Jimmy Graham was a huge help in the passing offense. He's trailing along the fourth round in ADP right now, and we think that's fair if you believe the passing offense will be less conservative this season as some of us do.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett signs deal    Tue May 26, 09:56 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett signed a four-year deal with the team Tuesday, May 26. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners should be excited about Lockett. He's a playmaker who can help as a receiver or return man. He can make big plays happen each time he touches the ball, and as a rookie the Seahawks would be wise to work him into the gameplan as a receiver. He'll contribute on special teams this year, and he'll have fantasy value in return-yardage leagues.

  Seahawks | Chris Matthews to be No. 3 WR for SEA?    Sat May 23, 02:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Chris Matthews may be the favorite to win the No. 3 wide receiver job with his favorable size and wingspan, according to NFL.com's Chris Wesseling. WRs Paul Richardson, Kevin Norwood and Tyler Lockett should also be in the mix.

Footballguys view: Matthews was active in only three regular-season games last season. He was available in the postseason, but Matthews didn't come through in the box score until the Super Bowl. In that game against the Patriots, Matthews was dominant with four catches for 109 yards and one touchdown. He'll try to carry that momentum over to this year. We feel Lockett could provide the best competition from the other receivers on the depth chart vying for the WR3 position.
