  Seahawks | John Ursua showing potential    Thu Jun 20, 09:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR John Ursua (hamstring) impressed head coach Pete Carroll when he returned from a hamstring injury during minicamp. 'He started to feel comfortable and show us the kind of quicks and change-of-direction stuff that made him one of the big scorers in college football last year,' Carroll said. 'You can see it, he's got a real style to him. He's a slot guy, he really is that mold.'

Footballguys view: Ursua will probably never approach what Doug Baldwin did, but he is in a similar vein as a quicker than fast slot receiver. He should be monitored in deep dynasty leagues.

  Seahawks | Will Dissly the only lock at TE    Wed Jun 19, 02:24 AM

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) is the only lock to make the 53-man roster among its tight ends, in the opinion of the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta, who gives the edge to TEs Nick Vannett and Jacob Hollister for the other two spots.

Footballguys view: It's funny that Dissly would be considered a lock for the 53-man roster when he hasn't even recovered from the torn patella tendon he suffered in Week 4 last season. Dissly won't be ready for the start of training camp, but reports indicate that he should be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. When healthy, Dissly will be competing for a reserve or (at most) rotational role.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise to be the odd-man out?    Wed Jun 19, 02:18 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise could be cut in order to keep RBs J.D. McKissic and Travis Homer, in the opinion of the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta, who believes the team may not be able to sneak Homer onto the practice squad and that McKissic's dependability gives him an edge over Prosise.

Footballguys view: Prosise has failed to produce at the pro level, mostly due to an injury bug that he can't shake. We'd actually be shocked if he stays healthy and makes the 53-man roster. Talent isn't the issue, but Prosise could use a fresh start in his pro career.

  Seahawks | Three options for third-down back    Sat Jun 15, 01:32 PM

Seattle Seahawks RBs C.J. Prosise, J.D. McKissic and Travis Homer will all be candidates for the third-down back role during training camp. Prosise and Homer did miss some time this offseason because of hamstring injuries.

Footballguys view: McKissic might be considered the front-runner here. He's the one who hasn't battled the injury bug ...especially the way Prosise has. We'll watch this battle shake itself out in training camp.

  Seahawks | David Moore making huge leap    Thu Jun 13, 06:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR David Moore has made a huge leap this offseason in his knowledge of the position and in his ability to play multiple spots, according to head coach Pete Carroll on Thursday, June 13.

Footballguys view: This is why Moore has spent time with the first-team offense in three-receiver sets during spring practices. The Seahawks are going to be a run-first offense in 2019, but more consistent usage of Moore could lead to steady production. Let's see what he looks like in the preseason.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise nursing another injury    Thu Jun 13, 04:13 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (hamstring) reportedly left practice with a tight hamstring Thursday, June 13, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Prosise has played in only 16 games over three seasons in the pros. He is as oft-injured as they come. Prosise is no lock to make the 53-man roster.

  Seahawks | Will Dissly will be ready for regular season    Thu Jun 13, 03:54 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) is expected to be ready training camp but may not be on the field for the first week or so, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who added there is 'no doubt' Dissly will be ready for the regular season.

Footballguys view: Dissly had a mini-breakout last year in the first month of his rookie year...although his best game did come against the Broncos defense who can't cover tight ends for anything. His rookie season ended with a torn patella tendon in Week 4. Dissly won't be ready to begin training camp, but it sounds like he should be ready before Week 1. He's competing for a reserve role this year.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson raves about D.K. Metcalf    Thu Jun 13, 02:04 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf has repeatedly impressed QB Russell Wilson throughout spring workouts.'It's great seeing DK make his plays. I think DK is looking really, really special. He can do anything and everything and he's tremendous. ... Everybody knows about (his) ability to run and jump and catch and all that. But I think more than anything else, it's his brain, how he processes information, how quickly he understands it. He's really intelligent, he understands the game really well. He takes coaching well, he gets extra work. He's a legit pro wide receiver. He's everything everyone was talking about in terms of what he's capable of and more,' Wilson said.

Footballguys view: Metcalf can at least be a jump-ball specialist for Seattle this year. That makes him a great option for Wilson in the red zone. Metcalf needs to stay healthy and he struggled with a few different injuries during his college career at Ole Miss. He also needs to become more nuanced as a route runner. Metcalf if big and fast but he struggles when throttling down to change direction. We're going to be monitoring him closely in training camp and the preseason.

  Seahawks | Will Dissly injury update    Thu Jun 13, 02:37 AM

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (knee) could be a 'full go' a few weeks into training camp, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny more mature    Sun Jun 9, 11:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny admitted that he became frustrated by the injuries he dealt with as a rookie, but he said he has 'grown up' and better understands how to be a pro on the field and off the field in terms of taking care of his body.

Footballguys view: Penny had a rough time as a rookie, with injuries and inconsistencies plaguing his game. A 2018 first-round pick, Penny has win-your-league upside if he plays well and earns more playing time in the Seattle backfield. He's going to split time with Chris Carson in 2019.

  Seahawks | Cody Barton signs contract    Fri Jun 7, 06:40 PM

Seattle Seahawks third-round draft choice LB Cody Barton signed a four-year contract with the Seahawks Friday, June 7. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Barton could be the replacement for Bobby Wagner if Wagner is not signed to a new contract next year. He and Ben Burr-Kirven were drafted this year to provide depth now and maybe start in the future.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny slim and trim    Fri Jun 7, 02:05 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has reportedly dropped 15 pounds and is being meant toward by Hall of Famer and fellow San Diego State alum Marshall Faulk.

Footballguys view: Chris Carson has been out with a knee issue, so Penny will get a lot of chances before training camp to impress the staff and push for more snaps and touches this season. His ADP is modest for a first-round pick on a team that loves to run the ball.

  Seahawks | Gary Jennings back on the field    Thu Jun 6, 09:20 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Gary Jennings (hamstring) participated in practice on a limited basis Thursday, June 6.

Footballguys view: Jennings is a big and swift possession receiver the Seahawks picked up in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL draft. We'll see how he mixes into the revamped WR corps in Seattle. Jennings could be the No. 3 receiver behind Tyler Lockett and fellow rookie D.K. Metcalf.

  Seahawks | Drumbeat continues for Jaron Brown    Tue Jun 4, 11:55 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Jaron Brown has enjoyed an 'unbelievable' offseason, according to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who echoed earlier comments from head coach Pete Carroll that Brown could have a larger role this season.'(Brown) did so much of the dirty work for us last year that ... we kind of forgot that he's a really established receiver and he's looked dynamic out here,' Schottenheimer said.

Footballguys view: That's what we all should be listening for at this point in the offseason; drumbeats. It's something that has continued in the conversation/reporting about Jaron Brown. Any former Clemson receiver in the league we will keep tabs on, and we've had our eyes on Brown in dynasty formats since he got into the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Last year in his first season with Seattle, Brown had just 14 catches for 166 yards but five of those grabs were for touchdowns. We'll see if he can continue to develop and be more than a red-zone threat this season.

  Seahawks | Jacob Hollister making early impression    Tue Jun 4, 11:14 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister is reportedly off to a strong start and has caught the eye of offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who referred to his new pupil as a 'terrific acquisition.''The speed element is awesome. Really good route-runner. A lot like Tyler (Lockett) in terms of the instincts, just the ability to get open. He has a great feel for coverages, man to zone,' Schottenheimer said.

Footballguys view: The Patriots could've used this guy. They traded him to Seattle earlier this year as they were jam-packed at the position at the time. That's not the case now as the Patriots might start Matt LaCosse to begin the regular season. We've appreciated Hollister's game since his days in college at Wyoming when he was a favorite target of Josh Allen. Hollister is buried on the depth hart behind Will Dissly, Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson but it's good news he is impressing.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny in great shape    Tue Jun 4, 05:46 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny has drawn raves for his conditioning this offseason, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

Footballguys view: Good news for the second-year back here. He's been working hard to prove that he can be a featured player for the Seahawks. They'll use Penny and Chris Carson in a RBBC this season. Penny has a current ADP of RB36 (8.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Malik McDowell sued by Seahawks    Fri May 31, 10:34 AM

Former Seattle Seahawks DT Malik McDowell is being sued by the Seahawks alleging he failed to repay the team $799,238, the amount an arbitrator ordered the defensive lineman to give back to the Seahawks.

Footballguys view: McDowell has yet to respond to the arbitrator's ruling. A second-round pick in the 2017 draft, McDowell missed his entire rookie season after suffering a severe head injury in an ATV accident. He was waived by the Seahawks last July and spent 2018 out of the league. McDowell turns 23-years old later this month and it sounds like he wants to resume playing football.

Undrafted free-agent RB Marcelias Sutton (Oklahoma) signed with the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, May 29. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived/injured RB Adam Choice (undisclosed).

Footballguys view: Sutton participated in Seattle's rookie minicamp as a tryout player earlier this month. A junior college transfer (Lackawanna College), Sutton had 282 rushing yards and four touchdowns in two seasons with the Sooners. His senior season was cut short after six games due to a leg injury. He can contribute as a runner, receiver or return man.

  Seahawks | Jaron Brown working with starters    Thu May 23, 09:56 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Jaron Brown has been working with the first-team offense during OTAs.

Footballguys view: Brown set a career high with five touchdown catches last year...but he did it on only 14 grabs (for 166 yards). We'll see if Brown can stay with this first-team offense and have a larger role in 2019. Seattle has revamped their WR corps this offseason and moved on from Doug Baldwin. With rookie WRs like D.K. Metcalf and Gary Jennings, Brown might not be able to hang onto that premium spot on the depth chart.

  Seahawks | Gary Jennings still sidelined    Thu May 23, 08:49 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Gary Jennings (hamstring) has been unable to participate in the first week of OTAs.

Footballguys view: Jennings is a strong possession receiver, measuring in at 6'1" 215 pounds. A fourth-round pick out of West Virginia, Jennings knows how to use his body and strength to win contested passes. He's not the fastest or quickest receiver, using more guile than natural gifts to produce. We'll monitor him in dynasty formats as he tries to win a spot on the depth chart when healthy.

  Seahawks | D.K. Metcalf signs rookie contract    Wed May 22, 03:48 PM

Seattle Seahawks second-round draft choice WR D.K. Metcalf signed a four-year contract with the Seahawks Wednesday, May 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Metcalf has to be a captain in the 'pre-draft hype team' as there weren't many players discussed more before the draft at the end of April. He's big, fast in a straight line and has great weight room selfies. Metcalf needs to be more nuanced as a route runner but he also could be more physical at the catch point, especially because he's incredibly strong. The upside is through the roof for Metcalf, but he's raw and unfinished....and he has had trouble staying healthy. His career should be fun to watch unfold because of the high ceiling but expect the rookie to perhaps have a larger learning curve than others in his class.

Seattle Seahawks DE Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) has a chance to be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

  Seahawks | Bobby Wagner looking for big contract    Tue May 21, 08:03 PM

Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner said he wants to sign a new contract that is better than the five-year, $85 million contract New York Jets LB C.J. Mosley signed this offseason. Wagner is attending the organized team activities but will not participate in practice because of his contract situation.

Footballguys view: It's a good faith move for Wagner to be there. Reports say Wagner is not open to taking a hometown discount, and with the way linebackers got paid in free agency that's not a bad move. Wagner is in the final year of his deal and Seattle has expressed interest in getting him a new deal. According to OverTheCap.com, the Seahawks have around $23.9 million in effective cap space at this time.

  Seahawks | Chris Carson underwent knee procedure    Tue May 21, 04:38 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (knee) 'had a little work done' on his knee recently but should be able to practice again in a couple of weeks, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: It sounds like a knee scope but the details of Carson's knee surgery is unknown. It's a situation for Fantasy GMs to watch closely as Carson was set to be the lead back for Seattle. He could still win the top job in training camp, but this injury gives second-year RB Rashaad Penny plenty of opportunity to showcase his skill set.

  Seahawks | D.K. Metcalf could start as rookie    Thu May 16, 02:36 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf was impressive during the team's rookie minicamp, according to the Washington Post's John Clayton, who said it was the best showing seen at a Seattle rookie camp since QB Russell Wilson back in 2012. Clayton added that Metcalf did so well that the team could start him on the outside and slide WR Tyler Lockett into the slot.

Footballguys view: There's certainly a lot of hype around Metcalf. There was in the draft and now that is continuing in minicamp. We'll see when we get to training camp and the preseason if Metcalf can live up to the hype. He's big and fast and a potential red-zone threat for Wilson and the Seahawks passing game. We'll monitor this situation closely as the season draws near.

  Seahawks | No timetable for Ziggy Ansah    Wed May 15, 06:32 PM

Seattle Seahawks DE Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) said he is happy with the progress he is making in his recovery from a shoulder injury but does not have a timetable for when he will return to the lineup.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks signed Ansah to a one-year deal with $6 million guaranteed as they look to replace DE Frank Clark. They'll move him along slowly and there are various speculative reports on when he'll be ready. Some think Ansah is good for the middle of training camp while there are others who say he could miss the first month of the season.

  Seahawks | Seattle locks up four more rookies    Tue May 14, 05:28 PM

Seattle Seahawks fourth-round WR Gary Jennings, sixth-round RB Travis Homer and sixth-round DT Demarcus Christmas and seventh-round WR John Ursua signed undisclosed four-year contracts Tuesday, May 14.

Footballguys view: Jennings is not the fastest prospect but he can be a reliable possession receiver. Homer is a compact back with the quickness and footwork to be elusive in space. While not a pile-pusher, Homer is intent as a runner and not afraid to run inside. Ursua is a speed slot receiver who needs to learn how to run better routes. We'll watch all of these rookie in various degrees of dynasty formats.

  Seahawks | Seattle parts ways with Kam Chancellor    Thu May 9, 04:25 PM

Seattle Seahawks S Kam Chancellor (neck) was released with a failed physical designation Thursday, May 9.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Chancellor did not play at all in 2018 and only made it through nine games in 2017. A four-time Pro Bowl player, Chancellor was one of the most intimidating players in the league and a key member of the 'Legion of Boom.' Neck injuries are always tricky to come back from, so Chancellor's days in the NFL are likely done.
