  Seahawks | Seattle coaching changes official    Tue Jan 16, 06:43 PM

The Seattle Seahawks officially hired offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. and offensive line coach Mike Solari Tuesday, Jan. 16. Defensive coordinator Kris Richard and linebackers coach Micheal Barrow were officially fired.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks have cleaned house under head coach Pete Carroll. The Schottenheimer hiring is the most interesting from a fantasy perspective. We'll see if their new OC can create a ground game that was non-existent in 2017. That, plus working with QB Russell Wilson to protect him better.

  Seahawks | Ken Norton Jr. joins Seattle    Mon Jan 15, 05:52 PM

San Francisco 49ers assistant coach Ken Norton Jr. signed a three-year deal to become the new defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Jan. 15. Norton recently accepted an assistant coaching position with the 49ers, but he has an out in his contract that allowed him to take the Seattle job.

Footballguys view: Norton worked under Pete Carroll in Seattle from 2010-2014 as the linebackers coach. His Raiders defenses were atrocious over the last two years, and Norton needed a reset on his coaching career.

  Seahawks | Cliff Avril wants to play again    Mon Jan 15, 04:07 PM

Seattle Seahawks DE Cliff Avril (neck) plans on trying to play again despite undergoing neck surgery and missing most of last season. Avril will turn 32 years old this offseason.

Footballguys view: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Avril would have a 'hard time' returning to football after this neck injury. The decision will be up to him, but Avril's future in the NFL remains cloudy at best.

  Seahawks | Seattle expected to hire Brian Schottenheimer    Sat Jan 13, 04:04 PM

The Seattle Seahawks are expected to hire Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks coach Brian Schottenheimer as their new offensive coordinator, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Schottenheimer has worked as the Colts QB coach over the last two years. He's been an offensive coordinator with the Rams, Jets and University of Georgia. Schottenheimer will need to find a way to get more offense around QB Russell Wilson. That should begin with a revamped rushing attack.

  Seahawks | Tom Cable fired     Wed Jan 10, 04:58 PM

Seattle Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable was fired Wednesday, Jan. 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Cable has been with the Seahawks since 2011, but he doesn't get left out as Seattle is cleaning house with their assistants on the coaching staff. The Seahawks had a terrible offensive line, but a large part of that was the talent put in place.

  Seahawks | More coaching dismissals by Seattle?    Wed Jan 10, 12:39 PM

Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard and quarterbacks coach Carl Smith will not return for the 2018 season, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Richard is the coach to watch here. He has interviewed for head coaching gigs before (Colts and Bills) and has worked under Pete Carroll his entire coaching career, both with Seattle and dating back to college at USC. We'll see how he gets things back on track with a fresh/new start.

  Seahawks | Darrell Bevell ousted as Seattle OC    Wed Jan 10, 05:12 AM

Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell was relieved of his duties Tuesday, Jan. 9.

Footballguys view: Bevell has worked as the OC for the Seahawks from 2011-2017. He didn't have much of an offensive line or rushing attack to work with this season, and whoever takes over for him should look for upgrades in that area...and the team should move on from TE Jimmy Graham in free agency. Interesting times ahead for Seattle offensively as they decided to clean house after missing the postseason in 2017.

  Seahawks | Mixed results for Jimmy Graham     Sat Jan 6, 11:05 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham led all tight ends with 10 touchdown receptions in 2017, but his 520 receiving yards were his fewest since his rookie season and his 9.1 yards per reception were the lowest of his career.

Footballguys view: Graham's career with the Seahawks has been a real up-and-down time. He enters free agency as a one-dimensional player, but that one part of his game (his receiving ability) can be among the best in the NFL.

  Seahawks | Sheldon Richardson expects to stay put    Thu Jan 4, 07:45 PM

Seattle Seahawks DT Sheldon Richardson said that he 'definitely expects' to be back with the club for the 2018 season.

Footballguys view: Richardson will likely hit the free agent market in March and added that the team has already spoken to him about retaining his services. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said it would be 'huge' if the team was 'fortunate enough' to be able to bring him back as well.

  Seahawks | Richard Sherman will have surgery    Tue Jan 2, 02:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman (Achilles', ankle) will have a procedure to clean up some bone spurs around his left ankle and heel area, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The recovery period is expected to be four to six weeks.

Footballguys view: Sherman has an $11 million cap hit in 2018, his final year under contract with the Seahawks. The Achilles' injury is the one to monitor closely as he may not be ready to go until some time in training camp.

  Seahawks | Cliff Avril may not be able to play again    Tue Jan 2, 01:08 PM

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll indicated Tuesday, Jan. 2, that DE Cliff Avril (neck) will have 'a hard time playing football again' based the neck injury he suffered this season, although Carroll suggested it will ultimately be up to Avril if he decides he wants to return to the field.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick (Lions) in the 2008 NFL draft, Avril's pro career may come to a close due to this injury. Neck problems are not anything to be taken lightly, and turning 32 years old in April we may see Avril decide to hang up his cleats for good.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham likely to enter free agency?    Mon Jan 1, 11:08 PM

  Seahawks | Week 17 game recap for Seahawks    Sun Dec 31, 07:52 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 18-of-29 passes for 221 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions while also rushing for 36 yards in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals. RB Mike Davis led the charge with 10 runs for 48 yards, while RB J.D. McKissic added four runs for nine yards and three catches for 20 yards. WR Doug Baldwin starred with four catches, 90 yards and two touchdowns. TE Jimmy Graham posted three grabs for 45 yards, while WR Tyler Lockett posted three receptions and 25 yards.

Footballguys view: Baldwin saved his best game of the second half of the season for a meaningless week in fantasy football. Graham faded in the second half of the season to complicate the decision about what will happen to him in free agency. Wilson could be the QB1 drafted next year, but teams that had him this year might have been left with a bad taste in their mouths after his December swoon.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham sits again    Thu Dec 28, 07:29 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

Footballguys view: The matchup is tough, Graham is banged up and Russell Wilson has had some off games. The only thing which saved Graham's value last week was a touchdown, but that was his only catch at all. We don't see him as more than a low-end TE2 this week and wouldn't trust him.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson eyeing history    Thu Dec 28, 03:10 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson can become the first quarterback in NFL history to tally 4,000 passing yards and 500 rushing yards in the same season.

Footballguys view: We think he has a shot, but he hasn't had a ton of 300 yard games this year. He needs 238 yards more, which hasn't always been a sure thing this season and he'll be facing a tough Arizona defense. We like him as a solid QB1 option this week, but he may not hit that mark, even if he is productive.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle, leg) won't practice this week, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: At 9-6 the Seahawks are still in the hunt for the playoffs. Carson is trying to come back from a broken leg but it doesn't look like he's on track to do that, even if Seattle makes it to the postseason. The rookie from Oklahoma State appeared in four games this year, rushing for 208 yards on 49 carries.
