  Seahawks | Luke Ingram waived    Fri Apr 17, 07:27 PM

Seattle Seahawks LS Luke Ingram was waived Friday, April 17.


  Seahawks | Robert Myers visits    Fri Apr 17, 02:51 AM

Tennessee State OG Robert Myers visited the Seattle Seahawks prior to the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Myers is likely a priority free agent after the draft, but he has starter's upside. While technically sound, Myers is not overly athletic. He's got the functional strength to work well as a run-blocker, but his footwork in pass-protection will need to be developed at the pro level.

  Seahawks | DeShawn Shead re-signed    Thu Apr 16, 05:43 PM

Seattle Seahawks CB DeShawn Shead re-signed as an exclusive-rights free agent Thursday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Seattle is just looking at depth in the secondary. Shead has been on and off the practice squad for Seattle since entering the league in 2012.

  Seahawks | SEA cautious with Russell Wilson deal    Thu Apr 16, 12:02 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is in negotiations with the team on a long-term contract extension, but general manager John Schneider said the team will be cautious in what they offer Wilson for a new contract. Schneider will be mindful of the salary cap and the club's future. Wilson will make $1.5 million in 2015, but a new deal is expected to give him over $20 million a year and more than $100 million total.

Footballguys view: The team knows that the bigger the contract the harder it will be to stay competitive the way they have been. They benefited heavily since Wilson was on a super-cheap rookie contract (and a third round one at that). They'll want to keep the contract on the low side, but Wilson's play over the last three years and his upside means they'll have to compensate him accordingly....and they cannot afford to do without him.

  Seahawks | Tory Slater visiting Seattle    Thu Apr 16, 08:54 AM

West Georgia DT Tory Slater is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Tory Slater is a bit of a sleeper, even though he's already visited with the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. He did well at his Pro Day and his athleticism (he was a wide receiver in high school) intrigues teams.

  Seahawks | Picking up Bruce Irvin's option?    Tue Apr 14, 06:39 PM

Seattle Seahawks LB Bruce Irvin's fifth-year option is expected to be picked up for 2016.

Footballguys view: They won't have to make this move until next offseason. The team will want to see how things work out with Irvin before they commit to him with a new long-term deal.

  Seahawks | Ricardo Lockette signs tender    Tue Apr 14, 05:19 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette signed his exclusive-rights tender Tuesday, April 14.

Footballguys view: Lockette is merely a reserve receiver with little fantasy upside. He'll contribute as a return man as well, but he's only worth rostering in ultra-deep dynasty leagues.

  Seahawks | Looking elsewhere for backup QB?    Mon Apr 13, 06:53 AM

Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Seahawks) and the Seattle Seahawks have had discussions about a new contract to back up QB Russell Wilson, but there has been difficulty determining Jackson's value. It is possible the team could look elsewhere for a backup.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Seattle moves on to a different free agent quarterback or if they select a backup quarterback in the 2015 NFL draft. This isn't a great group of quarterbacks entering the draft, but this was also a poor group of free agent quarterbacks too. Jackson's probably the best they can do.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants to play two sports    Sun Apr 12, 09:14 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he hasn't ruled out a return to professional baseball and would consider playing two sports.

Footballguys view: We've seen two-sport athletes before in the NFL (Deion Sanders, Bo Jackson) but never at the quarterback position. It seems highly unlikely Wilson would be able to do such a thing. In today's NFL, being a quarterback is a full-time job with little time for other activities--especially another pro sports career.

  Seahawks | Will Tukuafu re-signs    Wed Apr 1, 06:30 PM

The Seattle Seahawks re-signed FB Will Tukuafu to an undisclosed deal Wednesday, April 1.

  Seahawks | Jesse Williams re-signs    Wed Apr 1, 05:15 PM

Seattle Seahawks DT Jesse Williams re-signed Wednesday, April 1.

Footballguys view: It's no surprise that after two season spent on Injured Reserve due to knee injuries, Williams did not get any takers on the open market. The Seahawks let him go about a month ago, but they've decided to bring him back and see if he can stay healthy and make the team.

  Seahawks | Chris Myers visiting    Mon Mar 30, 01:09 PM

Free-agent C Chris Myers (Texans) is meeting with the Seattle Seahawks Monday, March 30, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Myers is a great fit for a zone-blocking team. The veteran center might also draw interest from a team like the Broncos on the open market.

  Seahawks | Demarcus Dobbs re-signed by Seattle    Sun Mar 29, 08:33 PM

Free-agent DE Demarcus Dobbs re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, March 29. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Seattle picked up Dobbs on waivers last November after the 49ers let him go. He's a reserve defensive lineman, but he can also contribute as a tight end in a pinch.

  Seahawks | Letroy Guion visits    Fri Mar 27, 05:39 PM

Free-agent DT Letroy Guion (Packers) met with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, March 27, according to a source.

Footballguys view: His firearm and marijuana case closed last week (with him only paying a fine), and now Guion is getting some interest on the open market. The Packers would like to bring him back, but joining a defense like Seattle's has to be tempting.

Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (knee) might not be ready for the start of the season, head coach Pete Carroll indicated Wednesday, March 25. Carroll did say Richardson's rehab was going well, but the nature of his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament means the receiver might not be ready.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson could play out deal    Mon Mar 23, 04:34 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson could play out the 2015 season in the final year of his rookie deal without a contract extension. Wilson and the Seahawks have had no real progress on a long-term contract extension. Wilson is highly unlikely to accept a short-term deal.

Footballguys view: Wilson is preparing and budgeting as if he'll be on a bargain deal in 2015. It could take another year for both parties to agree on a long-term extension, and Wilson knows a franchise tag in 2016 would likely be for over $20 million.

  Seahawks | No talks between SEA, Russell Wilson    Sun Mar 22, 10:57 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not had contract extension talks with the Seattle Seahawks at this point, according to a source.

  Seahawks | C.J. Wilson to visit Seattle    Sat Mar 21, 07:19 PM

Free-agent DE C.J. Wilson (Raiders) will visit the Seattle Seahawks this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Wilson is a run-stuffer on the edge. He also has the ability to build pressure from the outside, but he's not known as a pass-rusher.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson nearing extension    Sat Mar 21, 12:49 AM

The Seattle Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson might be on the verge of agreeing to a big and unique contract extension. 'From what I've been told they've very close, they're just trying to make sure every single thing is in place before they go forward with this,' beat writer Terry Blount said Friday, March 20. 'I think it's going to be bigger and crazier and different from what any contract has ever been.'

Footballguys view: Wilson has been playing for peanuts over the last few years because he was a third-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft. We'll see him sign an extension that makes him one of the richest quarterbacks in the league.

Free-agent DT D'Anthony Smith (Seahawks) signed an undisclosed deal with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, March 19.

  Seahawks | Ahtyba Rubin signing    Thu Mar 19, 06:16 PM

Free-agent DT Ahtyba Rubin (Browns) is signing an undisclosed deal with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, March 19, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Rubin is a big run-stuffer who can plug up the middle. The Browns weren't hot and heavy to bring him back after finishing 32nd against the run in 2014. We'll see if a change of scenery helps Rubin play better.

Free-agent DL Ahtyba Rubin (Browns) will visit the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, March 18, according to a source.

  Seahawks | Greg Hardy to visit    Tue Mar 17, 11:46 AM

Free-agent DE Greg Hardy (Panthers) is expected to visit the Seattle Seahawks, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Hardy would be a tremendous pass-rusher for any team that adds him....but he'd be especially dangerous if added to the already stout Seattle defense. He could be suspended the first six games of the 2015 season, and that's why the market has been cool for him so far. With the first wave of free agency done, expect that market to heat up.

  Seahawks | Jesse Williams may return    Tue Mar 17, 07:08 AM

Free-agent DT Jesse Williams (Seahawks) may return to the club in 2015, according to Wiliams himself.

Footballguys view: Williams was waived after knee injuries ended his last two seasons in Seattle. If healthy, he can work as a run-stuffing rotational player.

  Seahawks | Chris Canty to visit Seattle    Mon Mar 16, 09:41 PM

Free-agent DE Chris Canty (Ravens) will visit the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, March 19, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Canty started 11 games for the Ravens last year, but in Seattle he'd likely be moved inside to defensive tackle. He'd work well as a rotational player up front.

  Seahawks | Stefen Wisniewski visits    Thu Mar 12, 05:46 PM

Free-agent C Stefen Wisniewski (Raiders) visited with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: They got rid of Max Unger, which was odd because that offensive line had so many injury issues that losing Unger just makes it shakier. Wisniewski was ranked the 22nd center by Pro Football Focus with negative grades in overall play and pass blocking. He is a reasonable run blocker though, and given how much the Seahawks run and Russell Wilson scrambles, he might be a decent fit.

  Seahawks | Receive sixth-round pick from Jets    Tue Mar 10, 05:55 PM

The Seattle Seahawks received a sixth-round pick from the New York Jets Tuesday, March 10, after they released WR Percy Harvin.

Footballguys view: The Jets would've had to surrender a fourth-round pick if they had kept Harvin on the roster until March 19. The Jets saved $10.5 million on the salary cap by releasing Harvin.

  Seahawks | Seattle acquires Jimmy Graham     Tue Mar 10, 03:46 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham was traded to the Seattle Seahawks along with a fourth-round pick in exchange for C Max Unger and a first-round pick.

Footballguys view: The interest in Graham had been there for some time. The Seahawks tried to trade Percy Harvin for him last year, but the Saints said no. Now, Graham is with Seattle and he gives them an incredible target for Russell Wilson. The Seahawks don't have a robust passing game like the Saints do, but we still think Graham puts up TE1 numbers in Seattle.

  Seahawks | Cary Williams agrees with Seattle    Tue Mar 10, 08:30 AM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent CB Cary Williams agreed to a three-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks. The lack of state income tax in Washington played a role in his decision to sign.

Footballguys view: Williams swaps places with Byron Maxwell who is set to sign with the Eagles. He's just an average cornerback, but he has the size and plays with the fire that Seattle loves in the secondary. We'll see how he fits in the "Legion of Boom" in 2015.

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas could be targeted by the Seattle Seahawks when free agency opens next week.
