  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham in sync with QB    Sat Jun 24, 11:22 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham has been more of a complete player than expected and one of QB Russell Wilson's favorite weapons, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'He and Russell are really tuned in,' Carroll said. 'They spend a lot of time together.'

Footballguys view: Graham had a bounce back season in his second year with the Seahawks in 2016. The team figured out how to use him properly, and QB Russell Wilson developed an incredible rapport with the veteran tight end. Graham could built off the momentum he established last year, and he's currently going off the board at TE5 (6.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise to be worked into offense?    Fri Jun 23, 09:31 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise will be used mainly as the third-down back, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, but Condotta believes Prosise will also be worked into the offense to exploit specific matchups.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks are likely to have some sort of three-headed RBBC in 2017. Earlier reports have suggested they will ride the 'hot hand' of either Eddie Lacy or Thomas Rawls as runners. Prosise is dangerous with the rock, and he should be mixed in as a pass-catching or change-of-pace threat. He's going off the board at RB38 (8.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Equal share of carries between Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls?    Thu Jun 22, 07:49 PM

Bob Condotta, from the Seattle Times, speculates that the Seattle Seahawks could give Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls a fairly equal share of the basedown carries in 2017. Health and productivity (plus he brings up the dreaded 'hot hand' approach) should be the primary factors in how carries are split between the two.

Footballguys view: If Lacy is healthy and not overweight, we think he'll get the bulk of the carries. However, Rawls is a player who could see some snaps if Lacy falters. There is absolutely cause for concern with these players. And let's not forget C.J. Prosise could take a lot of third-down snaps.

  Seahawks | Austin Davis contract update    Wed Jun 21, 07:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Austin Davis signed a one-year deal worth $855,000. The deal includes a $50,000 signing bonus, and Davis would receive a $30,000 bonus if he is on the roster at the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Davis is competing for the primary backup spot behind Russell Wilson. He's got to beat out Trevone Boykin for that job.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise a matchup problem    Sun Jun 18, 08:35 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise runs routes like a receiver, according to Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com, and Kapadia called Prosise 'the biggest mismatch player' on Seattle's offense.

Footballguys view: Prosise is a converted wide receiver from his college days at Notre Dame. He runs routes like a receiver, but he looks like a running back when running after the catch. Prosise will mix in as a change-of-pace back behind starter Eddie Lacy.

  Seahawks | Alex Collins in great shape    Sat Jun 17, 11:45 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins has focused on his conditioning and it is showing on the field, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'He is in phenomenal shape,' Carroll said. 'He showed it. He's just clicking out here for us in every drill that we've done throughout every single day that we've been out here.'

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Collins here in dynasty leagues. We loved his instincts and running style in college at Arkansas, and he's just got to wait his turn with the Seahawks. He's fourth on the RB depth chart right now, but Collins has the potential to thrive in a featured role.

  Seahawks | Eddie Lacy receives weight bonus    Tue Jun 13, 11:00 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy received his $55,000 bonus for weighing in at 250 pounds or less Monday, June 12, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Two weigh-ins for Lacy have led to two paydays for the big back. He's got more coming during the regular season where the team wants him playing at 245 pounds or less. If Lacy is in shape, he might get back to his 1,000-yard ways in his first season with the Seahawks.

  Seahawks | Dion Jordan had knee operation    Tue Jun 13, 07:49 PM

Seattle Seahawks DE Dion Jordan (knee) underwent a cleanup procedure on his knee three weeks ago. The timetable for his return is unclear at this point.

Footballguys view: Jordan missed all of last year due to knee problems, and the year before that he was out due to suspension. A top-5 pick in the 2013 NFL draft, Jordan has been a major bust. The Seahawks could put him on the PUP list to begin the regular season.

  Seahawks | Eddie Lacy has another weigh-in    Mon Jun 12, 09:27 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy will earn $55,000 if he weighs 250 pounds or less Monday, June 12.

Footballguys view: Lacy is back on the P90X workout program to stay in shape (round is a shape) this offseason. He met his first goal last month and should be on track to hit this number as well. During the regular season, Lacy could get $55K each time he weighs in less than 245 pounds.

  Seahawks | Eddie Lacy to be weighed Monday    Sun Jun 11, 04:16 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is scheduled to be weighed Monday, June 12, and will need to be 250 pounds or less to receive a $55,000 bonus, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Lacy weighed in last month below the target goal of 255 pounds. He's been using P90X to get into better shape and keep him on track for the Seahawks plan. He's got a bonus of $55K due in July and August if he can check in below 250 pounds. During the regular season, Lacy could get $55K each time he weighs in less than 245 pounds. That's a lot of paper for staying in shape (shape-ish)....we'll see if Lacy can do it.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham a candidate for the tag?    Sat Jun 10, 09:34 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham could be a candidate for the franchise tag in 2018 because it could save the Seahawks a little money in the short term while giving them long-term leverage, according to Roy Cummings FanRag Sports.

Footballguys view: Graham was incredibly productive for the Seahawks last year, and he's set for a big pay day in free agency in 2018. Seahawks GM John Schneider does not have a history of using the franchise tag, but he may do that for Graham if an extension cannot be done.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett limited in OTAs    Fri Jun 9, 09:30 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) was limited to a few early drills during OTAs Friday, June 9.

Footballguys view: No hurries, no worries here with Lockett. The talent is there, but Lockett needs to stay healthy to play up to his potential in 2017. Lockett suffered a broken tibia and fibula on December 24, 2016 and had surgery soon after to repair the injuries. He said he expects to be ready for training camp. If at full strength, Lockett is a WR4/WR5 with flex appeal for fantasy owners.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise up to speed    Fri Jun 9, 09:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder) has been a full participant during OTAs.

Footballguys view: Good news for the change-of-pace back here. In his second pro season, we should continue to see Prosise mixed in on passing downs so long as he's healthy. Eddie Lacy will be the lead back, but Prosise has the ability to catch 30-ish passes in 2017.

  Seahawks | Seattle waives Jake Heaps    Mon Jun 5, 04:32 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Jake Heaps was waived Monday, June 5.

  Seahawks | Austin Davis signed by Seattle    Mon Jun 5, 01:42 PM

Free-agent QB Austin Davis (Broncos) signed an undisclosed contract with the Seattle Seahawks Monday, June 5.

  Seahawks | Seattle being careful with Luke Joeckel    Mon Jun 5, 11:38 AM

Seattle Seahawks OL Luke Joeckel (knee) will be worked into the practice rotation carefully, according to head coach Pete Carroll. 'We're really fired up about the fact that Luke has been able to work every day. He's worked every day of the offseason with us. In the format that we're doing he's able to be in the huddle a ton, he's practiced a bunch with us, so he's making really good progress. We're still careful with him, but yet he's in good enough shape and able to take care of a lot of work that we didn't think would get done.'

Footballguys view: A knee injury limited Joeckel to four games in 2016 with the Jaguars. He could start at tackle or guard, but Joeckel looks like he could fit in better inside. When healthy, that may end up where he starts. The Seahawks official website has him listed as G/T.

  Seahawks | Eddie Lacy taking steps to keep weight off    Sun Jun 4, 02:38 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is taking part in a P90X, 30-day challenge this summer and has a 'nutrition team' whose intent is to help Lacy meet the weight clauses in his contract and keep him at or around the 245-pound mark at coach Pete Carroll wants him to play at during the season.

Footballguys view: We've heard about Lacy using P90x before and weight problems were still a problem for him after he got off the program. He'll need to show that he can eat the right way in addition to training the right way after this 30-day challenge is done. Lacy had back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons to begin his pro career but he hasn't eclipsed that mark over the last two years. We'll see if a fresh start with Seattle helps.

  Seahawks | Eddie Lacy should be ready for camp    Sat Jun 3, 04:04 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) should be a full participant once training camp begins, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Seattle is just happy that he's not overweight. Injuries have hampered Lacy over the last two seasons, and his weight problems certainly haven't helped him stay healthy. Lacy has been limited during organized team activities because of an ankle injury.

  Seahawks | Money an issue between Colin Kaepernick, SEA    Sat Jun 3, 02:05 PM

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) has not signed with the Seattle Seahawks at this point because the two sides can't agree to a salary.

Footballguys view: The language of the NFL is money, and Kaepernick should not expect much on the open market. In fact, Seattle has been the only team to show interest in him. Perhaps if/when injuries hit in training camp his phone will start ringing...with better offers than Seattle had for him.

  Seahawks | Eddie Lacy working his way back     Fri Jun 2, 09:53 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has been limited in OTAs, but he said Friday, June 2, that the injury is steadily progressing.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks aren't going to rush anything here. Lacy is in shape (for him) and he's working his way back from the ankle injury. He'll be the lead back for the Seahawks this year and is looking to get back to the 1,000-yard production he had during his first two seasons in the league.

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (leg) is ahead of schedule and should be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Seahawks as Thomas is one of the best safeties in the league when healthy. Thomas was limited during practice Friday, June 2, but has done a lot during offseason workouts. We could see him continue to be limited during training camp with an eye on having him start in Week 1 of the regular season.

  Seahawks | Seattle not signing Colin Kaepernick now    Fri Jun 2, 04:56 PM

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team will not be signing free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) at this time but did not rule out the possibility in the future.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks are the only team that has shown interest in Kaepernick so far this offseason. They left the door open to add him later, and that might be just what happens. Trevone Boykin is not a reliable backup option, but he's the guy for now behind Russell Wilson.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise to be busy in passing game    Mon May 29, 12:35 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise could catch 60 passes in 2017 if he stays healthy, in the opinion of beat writer Sheil Kapadia. Prosise caught 17 of 18 targets for 208 yards (12.24 yards per reception) last season.

Footballguys view: Prosise averaged 7.0 yards after the catch per reception, a total that ranked well above the 4.9 average in the NFL last year. He's elusive in open space, and Prosise has a skill set that is much different than that of starter Eddie Lacy. Seattle can use Lacy and Prosise as a nice 1-2 punch in 2017. We see Lacy as a RB2 for fantasy owners and Prosise as a RB4/flex option in PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Nothing close between SEA, Colin Kaepernick    Sat May 27, 04:39 PM

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) is not close to an agreement with the Seattle Seahawks at this point even though they had a nice visit.

Footballguys view: Kaepernick only wants to play for the Seahawks, so it seems like something could be done at a later date. It makes sense for both sides as Seattle needs an upgrade over Trevone Boykin as the primary backup behind Russell Wilson.

  Seahawks | Malik McDowell signs contract    Fri May 26, 07:30 PM

Seattle Seahawks second-round draft choice DT Malik McDowell has signed a four-year contract worth $6.955 million. The deal includes a $3.198 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: McDowell is a big-bodied defender with the length to disrupt the quarterback from multiple spots on the line. Don't look at his numbers from college as they're not that impressive, but the potential with McDowell to be a solid pro is there. We'll see if he can take to pro coaching as questions from college about his work ethic and motor abound. He'll serve as a rotational player for the Seahawks.

  Seahawks | Colin Kaepernick wants to be in Seattle    Thu May 25, 01:46 PM

Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) said he wants to be with the Seattle Seahawks and doesn't mind backing up QB Russell Wilson. His meeting with the Seahawks went very well, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We think this would be a great fit. On the field, the offense plays to Kaepernick's strengths and would help cover some of his weaknesses. Off the field, Seattle is a generally liberal town and his kneeling - which he isn't even doing anymore - won't cause much angst.

Updating previous reports, free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) is meeting with the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, May 24, but is not working out for the team, according to a source.

Footballguys view: With so much film on Kaepernick, it's not like the Seahawks need to see him work out. They'll need to see if he can pass a physical and see how much he tips the scale. That's about it. They need a better backup behind Russell Wilson, and Kaepernick would give them just that.

Free-agent QB Austin Davis (Broncos) is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, May 24, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The connection is there from previous reports, but now it's official. The Seahawks are in need of a better backup QB behind Russell Wilson and Kaepernick could easily be that guy...if he's willing to be a clear reserve. Currently, the Seahawks have Trevone Boykin behind Wilson but he's been in trouble with the law twice this offseason.

Seattle Seahawks WR Amara Darboh signed his four-year rookie contract Tuesday, May 23. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Darboh is an interesting dynasty prospect to keep an eye on. A third-round pick out of Michigan in the 2017 NFL draft, Darboh is a sound route runner with the wingspan to snare passes at the highest point. He's a body catcher when the pass is on the numbers and suffers from focus drops. Darboh is fifth on the depth chart (at best) and is not in line for much production as a rookie.

Seattle Seahawks third-round draft choice DT Nazair Jones signed his four-year deal with the Seahawks Friday, May 19. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jones is a run stuffer, and he's got the size, length and strength to win at the point of attack. He's not a pass-rusher, so the rookie from North Carolina is likely to come off the field on passing downs.
