  Seahawks | Michael Bennett to meet with team    Mon Jul 25, 09:08 AM

Seattle Seahawks DE Michael Bennett is expected to meet with the team early this week amid his contract dispute, according to sources.

  Seahawks | John Schneider extended by Seattle    Mon Jul 25, 02:07 AM

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider agreed to a contract extension Sunday, July 24, on a five-year deal to make him one of the highest-paid general managers in the league. The deal is expected to approach $3.75 million per season.

  Seahawks | Michael Bennett unhappy with contract    Fri Jul 22, 01:01 PM

Seattle Seahawks DE Michael Bennett is unhappy with his contract, saying he wants 'to be fairly compensated with the top guys in the league,' and believing that he's 'definitely one of the top five defensive ends.' He added: 'I'm just to the point where it's kind of like, if you don't think I'm valuable, then just get rid of me.' Bennett is set to make $5.5 million this year and $7 million next year.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks are unlikely to give him more money with two years left on his deal, but next year they could compensate him for extra production under his current deal, like they did when they extended Marshawn Lynch.

  Seahawks | Michael Bennett enters camp unhappy    Thu Jul 21, 02:55 AM

Seattle Seahawks DE Michael Bennett (ankle) made it clear he wants a new deal, and he did not participate in organized team activities (OTAs) as a result of his unhappiness. He did show for mandatory minicamp, but he sat out with an ankle injury. If his deal is not redone before the season, it will be interesting to see how it affects Bennett into the regular season.

Footballguys view: There's only so much you can do with the cap restraints teams have and the Seahawks have benefited from some cheap rookie contracts for their big stars. We knew once Russell Wilson got paid big, it would be hard to keep everyone happy. Bennett has been tremendous in this scheme, but it's a scheme which prides itself on plug and play defenders. So Bennett may have to wait until he hits free agency in 2018.

  Seahawks | Justin Britt might be a backup    Thu Jul 21, 02:55 AM

Seattle Seahawks OG Justin Britt has been lining up at center during offseason workouts, but he'll have to hold off C Patrick Lewis for the starting job in training camp and the preseason. If he cannot hang on to the job, he might be looking at a backup role for the first time in his career.

Footballguys view: The offensive line will once again be a huge concern for this team, and a question mark at center could be a big problem. Marshawn Lynch's ability after first contact covered up a lot of issues in run-blocking and we may see that be an issue now that he is gone. At least they still have Russell Wilson, whose scrambling ability covers the flaws in pass-protection.

  Seahawks | Jarran Reed might start at nose tackle    Thu Jul 21, 02:53 AM

Seattle Seahawks NT Jarran Reed, the team's second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, is in line to start for the team at nose tackle.

Footballguys view: Ahtyba Rubin plays well but Reed has the potential to be much better, so if the rookie plays well in camp, expect him in the lineup, which could mean some nice points for IDP leagues. Our staff on hand for the Reese's Senior Bowl earlier this year loved the potential Reed showed during the week of practice in Mobile, AL.

  Seahawks | Germain Ifedi expected to start    Thu Jul 21, 02:52 AM

Seattle Seahawks OG Germain Ifedi lined up at right guard as a starter for most of the spring, and he is expected to start there.

Footballguys view: At least it's a rookie at guard, not left tackle. Still, we're concerned given his technique issues and once again it falls to Tom Cable to make magic out of an unimpressive offensive line, this time without Marshawn Lynch to help the run game.

  Seahawks | Many replacements for base defense LB    Thu Jul 21, 02:52 AM

Seattle Seahawks LB Frank Clark is expected to fill the pass-rush void of departed LB Bruce Irvin (Raiders), but LBs Cassius Marsh, Mike Morgan and Eric Pinkins are each vying for playing time in the team's base defense and the competition is believed to be wide open.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett could take step forward    Thu Jul 21, 02:51 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett posted 51 receptions for 664 yards and six touchdowns, plus two more as a returner, last season. Head coach Pete Carroll raved about Lockett during the spring and said Lockett is 'in the middle' of everything the team planned offensively.

Footballguys view: Lockett is a trendy dark horse pick in fantasy right now, and many think he could become the chief WR for this group in 2016. He's a great deep threat and also has the Antonio Brown-like ability to get open on underneath routes. Currently we have him rated as a WR4, which lines up with his current ADP as WR37. The upside is there for Lockett to finish around the top 20 in 2016.

  Seahawks | Trevone Boykin remains No. 2 for now    Thu Jul 21, 02:51 AM

Seattle Seahawks rookie QB Trevone Boykin remains the team's primary backup to starter QB Russell Wilson, but beat writer Sheil Kapadia says don't be surprised to see the team add a veteran sometime in August.

Footballguys view: Wilson has been very healthy so the risk is low, but we all know what happens when a top-shelf quarterback goes down to injury with an inexperienced player the only one left to take over. We expect someone else to show up unless Boykin REALLY impresses in camp. Stay tuned.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham won't be rushed back    Thu Jul 21, 02:50 AM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is recovering from a ruptured right patellar tendon which he suffered Nov. 29. He is expected to be back on the field for the start of the regular season, but he won't be rushed back. Through the first 12 weeks last season he was the team's most targeted player.

Footballguys view: The team doesn't use him effectively anyway. What is it about Seattle that makes it the place good TEs go to be mediocre? At best he is a TE2 and a low end one at that. We're not even sure he will make the start of the season, so a strong BUYER BEWARE is issued here as well.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls will be eased back    Thu Jul 21, 02:49 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) is making his way back from a fractured left ankle that included ligament damage in mid-December. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, but he will be eased back into action. That will also give the coaching staff a closer look at rookie RBs Alex Collins and C.J. Prosise.

Footballguys view: Rawls is an RB2 mostly by virtue of being the guy left holding the rock when Marshawn Lynch retired on Twitter. He's no lock to hold the job and you can't exactly feel the confidence from Seattle when they draft not one, not two but three running backs in the 2016 draft. CJ Prosise is the darling of the rookie set but don't sleep on Alex Collins as well. Consider our RB2 ranking a "soft" ranking, and keep a close eye on Prosise/Collins this August.

  Seahawks | Alex Collins will compete immediately    Tue Jul 19, 05:15 PM

Seattle Seahawks rookie RB Alex Collins is expected to compete right away for playing time as an early-down running back, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick of the Seahawks this year, Collins was one of our favorite RBs in this draft class. Collins is a one-speed runner, but he's swift and can build up a head of steam. He's got the quickness to make defenders miss, and his foot frequency allows him to change direction without losing much speed. Seattle added three RBs via the 2016 NFL draft this year, and it will be interesting to see how things shake out behind Thomas Rawls.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson elite with protection    Tue Jul 19, 03:36 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led all quarterbacks in Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) last season when he was adequately protected, according to Football Outsiders. DVOA measures efficiency by comparing success on every play to the league average based on situation and opponent. Wilson was solid under pressure, too, ranking fourth in DVOA among quarterbacks.

Footballguys view: Wilson is great when adequately protected, but he's also good when facing five or more pass-rushers. In 2015 when facing five or more pass-rushers, Wilson had 14 passing TDs and only three interceptions. The touchdown mark was 3rd-best in the league in that category.

  Seahawks | Jarran Reed should start    Sat Jul 16, 01:38 PM

Seattle Seahawks rookie DT Jarran Reed is expected to replace San Diego Chargers DT Brandon Mebane and start at defensive tackle with DT Ahtyba Rubin.

Footballguys view: Reed was one of our favorite rookie defensive tackles in the 2016 draft class. A mountain of a man, Reed was never able to put up great numbers at Alabama. Instead, his role was to plug up the middle and re-direct plays around him---a role he played well. Earlier this year at the Reese's Senior Bowl, Reed was a dominant player in practice and was one of the 'buzz' players during the week. He should at least be a solid run-stuffer for the Seahawks defense in 2016.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls confident in camp readiness    Sun Jul 10, 04:10 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) said he will 'most definitely' be ready for the start of training camp, according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia.

Footballguys view: Rawls is the frontrunner to be the successor to Marshawn Lynch, although Seattle did add three RBs to the mix via the 2016 NFL draft. Before getting hurt in Week 14, Rawls had four 100-yard rushing games--including a 200-yard day on the ground against the 49ers in Week 11. If healthy (and the bellcow), Rawls has a chance to perform like a high-end RB2 for fantasy owners. His current ADP is RB14 (3.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Michael Vick an option for Seattle?    Mon Jul 4, 04:02 PM

Free-agent QB Michael Vick (Steelers) could be a pickup candidate for the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN analyst, Phil Savage. Savage said Vick would fit the Seahawks with his mobility, what he brings to the table and with a veteran presence behind QB Russell Wilson.

Footballguys view: We could see that happening as the Seahawks aren't likely to bring back Tarvaris Jackson and currently have undrafted rookie Trevone Boykin as the second-string QB behind Wilson. Vick was with the Steelers last year where he appeared in five games, completing 60.6 percent of his passes for 371 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. At age 36, Vick still wants to play but would only be a veteran backup no matter where he lands.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin incredibly effective    Wed Jun 29, 01:09 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin was one of the most effective pass catchers in 2015. Of the 87 receivers to play at least 25% of their teams' snaps last year and accrue an average depth of target beyond 10 yards, Baldwin's completion rate of 79% was first overall. Baldwin was also the only wideout to have double-digit touchdowns and average at least 10 yards per target.

Footballguys view: Baldwin likely had a career-best season in 2015. Fantasy owners should not be expecting him to duplicate the 14 TDs he had last year. He's still a favorite target of QB Russell Wilson, but we may see second-year pro Tyler Lockett emerge with a larger role. We like Baldwin as a low-end WR2 for fantasy owners.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin excelled in slot    Wed Jun 29, 12:40 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin had 1,007 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns out of the slot last year. The only other receiver to hit the 1,000-yard mark and have at least 10 touchdowns from the slot in the last 10 years was Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb.

  Seahawks | Tarvaris Jackson unlikely to return    Tue Jun 28, 10:23 PM

Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Seahawks) is not expected to re-sign with the Seattle Seahawks after serving as the backup there for the past three years. The team has QBs Trevone Boykin and Jake Heaps on the roster as backups to starting QB Russell Wilson.

Footballguys view: Jackson is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly threatening his wife with a gun. He's not going to get a look from any team until this serious matter is cleared up. Jackson is likely done playing in the NFL.

  Seahawks | Trevone Boykin charged with assault    Tue Jun 28, 10:22 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin was charged with assault this week in connection with an incident Dec. 31 in San Antonio. He was arrested after being thrown out of a car, and then he allegedly struck a police officer, according to multiple reports.

Footballguys view: This isn't a new incident, and it's one the team was well aware of when they added Boykin as an undrafted free agent this year. Boykin is in line to win the job as the primary backup behind Russell Wilson in 2016.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin contract details    Tue Jun 28, 07:47 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin's four-year extension is worth a total of $46 million, with more than $24 million in guaranteed money, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The contract total makes Baldwin the 8th-highest paid WR in the league. It's a premium price for a 2nd-tier WR, but Baldwin has proven himself over the last few years. He's a favorite target of QB Russell Wilson, but duplicating the 14TDs he had last year should be difficult. We see Baldwin as a low-end WR2 who is capable of having huge games in certain matchups.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin signs extension    Tue Jun 28, 07:28 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin signed a four-year contract extension through 2020 Tuesday, June 28, according to a source. The deal is worth more than $11 million per year.

Footballguys view: It's a fair price for Baldwin as he's now paid like a top-level, second-tier receiver. He came through in a big way for the Seahawks last year, and Baldwin has clearly earned the trust of QB Russell Wilson. Fantasy owners should recognize that it will be difficult to duplicate the 14 TDs that made him the 7th-best fantasy WR in 2015. However, he could still put up WR2 numbers and has WR1 upside in certain matchups. His current ADP is WR24 (4.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Jeff Fuller waived/injured    Tue Jun 28, 05:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Jeff Fuller (undisclosed) was waived/injured from the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, June 28.

  Seahawks | Zac Brooks full go    Tue Jun 28, 04:08 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Zac Brooks (undisclosed) appeared to be full healthy Tuesday, June 28, despite being limited with an undisclosed injury at times this offseason.

Footballguys view: Brooks is an explosive player who can quickly get to top speed. The seventh-round pick will be in the mix for a reserve spot on the roster and will likely have to contribute on special teams to make the 53-man squad. Brooks is not creative as a runner and his best features come through as a receiver out of the backfield.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise needs good camp    Tue Jun 28, 03:57 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise is going to need to have a really good training camp, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll implied that Prosise has been somewhat of a disappointment this offseason, but he did take note of Prosise's athleticism and skill set.

Footballguys view: A hip injury has slowed the rookie during OTAs and minicamp. Prosise was the first one of three RBs selected by the Seahawks in the 2016 NFL draft. A converted WR from Notre Dame, Prosise was the starting RB for the Fighting Irish for only one season. He's got smooth athleticism in the open field, but Prosise needs to learn better timing as a runner. Too often in college he would be too patient waiting for blocks to develop, and thus he would not maximize the yardage gained on the ground. We'll see if he can impress in training camp.

  Seahawks | Nick Vannett a pleasant surprise    Tue Jun 28, 03:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks rookie TE Nick Vannett has exceeded expectations so far in his first offseason. Head coach Pete Carroll said Vannett is a natural pass-catcher despite being billed as more of a blocking tight end. 'He shows the savvy and instincts that you hope a guy has,' Carroll said, adding that QB Russell Wilson has really clicked with Vannett.

Footballguys view: Lance Zierlein, from NFL.com, compared Vannett to Zach Ertz (Eagles) in his draft profile of the Ohio State prospect. We like that comparison as Vannett has a great size/athleticism combination. Vannett has a large catch radius and is not afraid to make catches in traffic. The rookie will be competing for a spot on the depth chart behind starter Jimmy Graham. Vannett is a player we're targeting in deep dynasty leagues.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett will have important role    Mon Jun 27, 01:26 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett will be moved around on offense in 2016 and is a central part of the team's offensive plans, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Lockett has spent this offseason working on beating press coverage.

Footballguys view: Another day, and another positive story about Lockett. The second-year player has the quickness and agility to create his own space with ease. He's a threat to score anytime the ball is in his hands, and Lockett is a player fantasy owners need to add when possible. The Seahawks passing game is likely to be robust once again this year, and Lockett will be a big part of what they do through the air. His current ADP is WR36 (7.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Tyler Lockett player page


  Seahawks | Russell Wilson has made strides    Wed Jun 22, 05:31 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has made a clear step ahead this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'His command is all-time. His ability to move defenders with his eyes to set up some things, he's consistently doing that, almost unconsciously, he's so clued in,' Carroll said. 'We saw him throw the ball all over the field throughout the offseason and he's been strong and accurate and really precise about stuff. He has had a great offseason.'

Footballguys view: Wilson was arguably a league winner in the second half of the season last year after a slow start to the campaign. While the Seahawks won't have a high volume pass offense, Wilson has shown the efficiency and running ability to be an elite fantasy quarterback without throwing even 500 passes in a season. He deserves to go in the top five fantasy quarterbacks this year.

  Seahawks | Head coach lauds Tyler Lockett     Tue Jun 21, 08:07 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is one of the hardest working players ever, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll said Lockett is a starter, much more than just a special teams player.

Footballguys view: There's no denying it....we love Lockett. His speed, quickness and elusiveness made him a special player in college at Kansas State. We only saw the tip of the iceberg last year during Lockett's rookie season when he snared 51 passes for 664 yards and six touchdowns. Throw in Lockett's electric ability as a return man and you have a valuable fantasy asset. He's a big part of the Seahawks burgeoning passing game, and we see Lockett as an exciting WR3/flex play (with upside) for fantasy owners. There's always been a dash of Antonio Brown (Steelers) to his game, and we may see Lockett emerge as the WR1 for the Seahawks by the end of the 2016 season.

  Seahawks | Seattle not expected to add Eugene Monroe    Mon Jun 20, 07:04 PM

Free-agent OT Eugene Monroe (Ravens) probably will not be a target for the Seattle Seahawks because they appear to be content with their offensive linemen.

Footballguys view: Monroe should get a few teams interested in his services, but he may not latch on with another squad until we get closer to training camp.

  Seahawks | Change in offense aided Russell Wilson    Mon Jun 20, 12:50 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw 24 touchdowns and one interception in the last seven games after the offense shifted to emphasize quicker passes, timing routes and spread formations. He was sacked 31 times in the first seven games and just 15 times in the last nine games as getting rid of the ball quickly helped negate struggles on the offensive line. Head coach Pete Carroll said to expect more of that in 2016.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to take note here. Wilson has been a top-5 fantasy QB each of the last two years, and he's been a top-12 fantasy QB every year he's been in the league. With more emphasis on shorter passes and guys like Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett catching passes, Wilson could finish as the best fantasy QB in 2016.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael drops weight    Fri Jun 17, 05:14 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael said he lost around eight pounds this offseason and feels a little quicker. He currently weighs 217 pounds.

Footballguys view: The weight loss makes for a nice story, but would be even better is if Michael would actually play up to his potential as a pro. The Seahawks added three RBs in the 2016 NFL draft, so Michael's fantasy value could plummet quickly if one or more of those backs move past him on the depth chart. Currently, Michael would have to be considered the primary backup behind starter Thomas Rawls.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin contract being negotiated    Thu Jun 16, 07:23 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin's possible contract extension is being worked on by both sides, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Carroll said the goal is to get him locked up for a long time.

Footballguys view: Baldwin had a tremendous second half to last season, but Seattle's offense still skews towards the run, which limits his upside a little. Without Marshawn Lynch in the backfield, things might shift a little but we aren't sure yet. Baldwin should produce regardless, and we see him as a solid WR3 with upside this year.

  Seahawks | Pete Carroll confident in players' return    Thu Jun 16, 05:02 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) and RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) should 'absolutely' be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Graham has a lot of ability, but he is kept in check by Seattle's offensive scheme and offensive line woes. He has TE1 ability, but is producing TE2 numbers. We don't see it changing right now.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett growing as receiver    Tue Jun 14, 01:10 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is growing as a receiver and has improved on getting better releases off the line of scrimmage, according to WR Doug Baldwin. 'He's so quick and he's so fast that there's no reason for guys to be able to put their hands on him at the line of scrimmage,' Baldwin said. Lockett caught 51 passes (second on the team) for 664 yards and six touchdowns in his rookie year.

Footballguys view: Lockett was a favorite of ours entering his rookie season, and he performed well above the expectations some had for him. We love his upside as a playmaker, and see some dashes of Antonio Brown (Steelers) to his game. Lockett has a current ADP of WR36 (7.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch confirmed that he won't be returning to play for the Seattle Seahawks. 'I'm retired. Is that good enough? Which camera do you want me to look into? This one? I'm done. I'm not playing football anymore,' Lynch said.

Footballguys view: He's done....maybe. Lynch is one of our favorite players to ever play in the NFL, but he's a beat of a different drummer guy and could end up changing his mind on a whim. Unfortunately, we may have seen the last of Lynch.

  Seahawks | Trevone Boykin continues to rise    Fri Jun 3, 11:33 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin appears to be the backup to QB Russell Wilson right now ahead of QB Jake Heaps. The Seahawks' confidence in Boykin continues to grow during offseason workouts. There remains a chance that the Seahawks wind up re-signing QB Tarvaris Jackson, though.

Footballguys view: Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has been impressed by Boykin. He was a star QB at TCU but fell undrafted this year. The Seahawks scooped him up because he has a similar skill set to that of Wilson. Boykin is an athletic passer with a good arm, and he put up astronomical numbers at TCU (over 10,000 yards passing, 2,000-plus rushing yards, 114 TDs). We're watching him in all dynasty formats.

Seattle Seahawks OT J'Marcus Webb (calf) is still sidelined because of a severe calf strain, but offensive line coach Tom Cable said he hopes Webb will be able to return next week.

Footballguys view: Webb isn't exactly an All Pro to begin with, and the line in Seattle is consistently underwhelming so it's not great to see Webb already hurt. At the end of the day, though, the greater impact on this unit will be not having Marshawn Lynch running over defenses. Without that threat, both run and pass blocking is going to be tougher.

  Seahawks | Garry Gilliam not practicing    Thu Jun 2, 09:54 AM

Seattle Seahawks OT Garry Gilliam (knee) is not participating in organized team activities because he had a procedure on his knee last week. Head coach Pete Carroll said Gilliam should be fine for training camp.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks' offensive line has always been a scary thing to watch, so nobody wants to see them already having to deal with injuries. At least Gilliam is going to be ready for camp. We're curious to see how the line holds up without the threat of Marshawn Lynch running all over defenses.

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin said he is 'most certain' that retired RB Marshawn Lynch is done playing football.

Footballguys view: We're not so sure about that. Lynch is a "beat of a different drummer" type of guy, and he may one day decide to return to the league. We're not counting on it, but we're not counting him out forever. Perhaps he'll take a year off and return, or perhaps he is just done playing football.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) might be ready to play in Week 1 of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Graham continues to recover from a torn patellar tendon he suffered last season.

Footballguys view: The other big question is, how will they use him? Seattle was very inconsistent with his targets for a lot of the season, but when they threw a lot at him, he made plays. We're hoping that they learned their lesson and have him block less than he catches. For now we rate him as a good TE2, if he's ready to go.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls could be ready Week 1    Thu May 26, 05:51 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) may be healthy enough to play by Week 1 of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Rawls is still recovering from a fractured ankle he suffered late last year.

Footballguys view: Rawls has a lot of upside when he finally takes the field, potentially as a very good RB2. The question will be when that happens. We like him a lot, but it's going to be tough to trust him in drafts. Meanwhile, keep an eye on rookie CJ Prosise and Christine Michael, both of whom could solidify themselves as part of an RBBC or more.

  Seahawks | Richard Sherman talks Marshawn Lynch     Sun May 22, 07:31 PM

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman said he wouldn't 'put anything past' retired RB Marshawn Lynch when asked if he thought Lynch could return to the NFL.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't put anything past Lynch either. He's a beat-of-a-different drummer type of guy, and Lynch pretty much does what he wants to do. No retirement papers have been filled out by Lynch, and he's been in Haiti building houses for homeless people. The Seahawks drafted three backs in the draft to go along with Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael. We won't blame you if you're in a super-deep dynasty league and want to save a roster spot for Lynch.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin talks could open soon    Fri May 20, 02:46 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin is expected to have contract talks begin with the team in the near future.

Footballguys view: Baldwin will be a free agent in 2017. He is turning 28 during the season this year and will be paid four million dollars, a relative bargain. Baldwin doesn't project as a #1 elsewhere and probably would have his fantasy value preserved the best by staying in Seattle despite their low volume pass offense because he and Russell Wilson clearly have a good thing going in the red zone.
