  Seahawks | Brandon Marshall contract incentives    Fri Jul 13, 01:16 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Brandon Marshall's can more than double the value of the one-year, $1.015 million contract he signed in May. Marshall can earn up to $350,000 if he catches more than 70 passes, another $350,000 if he tops 800 yards receiving and three and $350,000 more if scores at least seven touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Marshall is by no means a lock for a roster spot, but if he does make the team, he could be the #2 outside receiver. Tyler Lockett is basically a starter and the second most valuable receiver on the team after Doug Baldwin, with 2017 third-rounder Amara Darboh and free agent signing Jaron Brown also having a say in what happens in this receiver corps.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin loving life in the slot    Tue Jul 10, 11:22 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin has amassed an NFL-high 2,315 yards from the slot over the past three seasons, 58 more than second-place Jarvis Landry and 364 more than third-place Larry Fitzgerald.

Footballguys view: Baldwin will continue to be Russell Wilson's top target, and it's not even close. The one question is whether the offensive line -- if you can call it that last season -- gives Wilson the time to throw. Last year they didn't and Baldwin's catch rate fell, though he was only credited with two drops all year. Wilson just lacked the time for accurate passes. Despite that, he still put up top 15 numbers. Right now he's tracking as the 10th receiver taken off the board, and we think his volume will bear that out and make him a smart selection.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin no stranger to the end zone    Sat Jul 7, 10:09 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin's 29 touchdown receptions over the last three seasons are second only to Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown's 31.

Footballguys view: Baldwin was a strong factor in the red zone in 2015 and 2016 with eight and seven touchdowns from 20 or closer respectively, but fell to three last year with the dominance near the goal line by Jimmy Graham. Graham is gone and Baldwin could have a spike in scores this year.

  Seahawks | Bobby Wagner a tackling machine    Sat Jul 7, 10:00 PM

Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner's 518 tackles over the last four years are the most in the NFL, and since entering the league in 2012, Wagner's 776 tackles are the second most of any player.

Footballguys view: Wagner could set an even higher level of production this year if the Seahawks don't outperform expectations and end up being a losing team.

  Seahawks | Kam Chancellor unlikely to be released    Thu Jul 5, 02:48 PM

Seattle Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (neck) likely will not be released at this time because the team would take a big salary cap hit this season if they cut Chancellor. He likely will be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Last time he had his neck checked out, doctors said they saw no healing, so we're pretty sure he isn't playing any time soon - perhaps even ever. The Seahawks have to be careful about cap hit, so this move makes sense. It's not the end of the world for Seattle, but that secondary is going to look wildly different than it did last year.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny brings versatility     Fri Jun 29, 10:20 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny 'can do everything,' according to Gild Brandt of NFL.com, and Brandt believes head coach Pete Carroll will know how to use Penny effectively.

Footballguys view: Penny was the team's first-round pick and we expect him to take over as the lead back ASAP. If he proves himself in pass protection, the rookie from San Diego State could be the Seahawks Week 1 starter. Penny only caught 42 passes in college (19 in 2017), but he does have soft hands and can turn it upfield quickly upon securing the catch.

  Seahawks | J.R. Sweezy could return to Seattle    Fri Jun 29, 07:52 PM

Free-agent OG J.R. Sweezy (Buccaneers) may be pursued by the Seattle Seahawks, in the opinion of NFL Network's Mike Garofolo.

Footballguys view: Sweezy graded out poorly for the Buccaneers in 2017, but the Seahawks are still in need of help up front. The veteran guard played in Seattle from 2012 to 2015.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin excelled against press in 2018    Thu Jun 28, 03:37 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin recorded a catch rate of 74.2 percent and a receiver rating of 149.1 against press coverage in 2017, according to Pro Football Focus. Baldwin, was one of just seven receivers to see at least 30 targets against press coverage without a single drop, finished with 23 catches on 31 targets for 339 yards and five touchdowns against press coverage last season.

Footballguys view: Baldwin is a tremendous receiver and a beast out of the slot position. He's also Russell Wilson's top target. Hopefully the offensive line gives Wilson time to throw a solid pass this year. We think they could, which makes him a high-end WR2 option, about where he's going in drafts.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett an impact player    Sun Jun 24, 11:19 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett said he is healthier than he has ever been, and head coach Pete Carroll said having Lockett healthy is 'really positive' for the offense.

Footballguys view: Injuries have robbed Lockett of his explosiveness each of the last two years. The ability is there for him to produce at WR3 levels for fantasy owners, and the opportunity may be there for him to do that in 2018...provided he stays healthy. With TE Jimmy Graham and WR Paul Richardson gone, the Seahawks are looking for someone to pick up the slack in the passing game opposite WR Doug Baldwin.

  Seahawks | SEA still paying for Marshawn Lynch    Thu Jun 21, 10:46 AM

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch will take up more than $5 million on the Seattle Seahawks' salary cap in 2018 from his previous deal before he retired in 2016.

Footballguys view: Ouch. That's a lot of Skittles. Lynch came on strong late in the season, but at 32 it's hard for us to get a ton of enthusiasm for his production this year. Jon Gruden wants to run him a lot though, so he could very well outperform his ADP of 69 overall and No. 31 back off the board.

  Seahawks | Earl Thomas extension unlikely    Thu Jun 21, 10:28 AM

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas seems unlikely to receive a contract extension from the club, in the opinion of beat writer Brady Henderson. The Seahawks brass has previously extended many core players, but general manager John Schneider used the distinction that many of those extensions a year ahead of free agency were with players on rookie deal. Thomas is not.

  Seahawks | Brandon Marshall not guaranteed a spot    Thu Jun 21, 02:52 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR Brandon Marshall (hamstring, toe) is no lock to make the 53-man roster, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. This is due to the team's limited financial commitment, which is insurance in case Marshall doesn't heal as well as they hope or if they see more value in retaining a younger option.

Footballguys view: He didn't cost much but Pete Carroll will wring out all the value he can by making him a message for the team, a reminder that every position must be earned. Marshall was hurt last year and becoming less effective prior to that, so his loss would not be significant.

  Seahawks | Rasheem Green inks deal    Wed Jun 20, 03:23 PM

Seattle Seahawks DE Rasheem Green signed his four-year rookie contract Wednesday, June 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft out of USC, Green has the length and hustle to make plays from the edge. He uses his hands well when attacking blockers, and Green does a nice job of exploding to the play. Green needs to add some muscle to his frame even though he measures in at 6'4" 275 pounds. Had he stayed in college one more year, there are some in the scouting community who felt Green could work his way into the first round.

  Seahawks | Alex McGough to push for backup job    Mon Jun 18, 12:41 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Alex McGough showed enough during offseason workouts to receive a real opportunity to compete with QB Austin Davis for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Florida International is known for being an accurate passer who stays patient with his reads. He'll put the ball up for grabs too often when trying to go deep and will need to take better care of the football if he wants to win the backup job to Russell Wilson.

  Seahawks | SEA playing it cautious with Brandon Marshall    Sun Jun 17, 08:19 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Brandon Marshall (hamstring) skipped organized team activities and the minicamp, but coach Pete Carroll indicates the team is fine with this as long as Marshall keeps recovering.

Footballguys view: Marshall made it through five games in 2017 before toe/ankle surgery put him on Injured Reserve and ended his season. It's smart for the Seahawks to take it easy with the seasoned veteran during the offseason. The plan is to have him as a full participant during training camp.

  Seahawks | Chris Carson most impressive RB in Seattle?    Fri Jun 15, 02:54 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been 'the most impressive of any running back (in the team's offseason practices) this summer', and general manager John Schneider has said that at times Carson looks like the best player on the field, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson.

Footballguys view: Carson has been getting a lot of hype this offseason. It will be an interesting battle between Carson and 2018 first-round pick RB Rashaad Penny. If Penny struggles with pass protection early (as many rookie RBs do), then perhaps Carson could take on a larger role to begin the season.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny earning trust     Thu Jun 14, 09:45 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny looks 'comfortable' in pass protection, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Penny isn't really able to show much in pass protection until we get to training camp and the preseason. The rookie first-round pick could win the starting job for the Seahawks if the team likes the way he protects the quarterback.

  Seahawks | Chris Carson working with the starters    Thu Jun 14, 02:22 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been working with the first-team offense and ahead of rookie RB Rashaad Penny during minicamp. Carson earned praise from head coach Pete Carroll during OTAs as well.

Footballguys view: The expectation is Penny will turn up and take the starters job in camp, but this is a battle worth watching. Penny's biggest hurdle is pass protection, which Carson can do. There's a good chance the various members of the backfield -- including C.J. Prosise, J.D. McKissic, and Mike Davis -- could eat each other alive and keep everyone's production down.

  Seahawks | Doug Baldwin, Russell Wilson locked in    Sun Jun 10, 10:43 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin and QB Russell Wilson are the 'tightest they've ever been,' according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: That's great news for the Seahawks, especially with all the changes on that roster. Those two need to be dialed in with players like TE Jimmy Graham and WR Paul Richardson moving on in free agency. With Seattle's defense in rebuild mode there might be more pressure on Wilson to carry the team. That's a reason why fantasy owners are currently taking Wilson at QB3 (5.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Earl Thomas holding out    Sun Jun 10, 11:00 AM

Contrary to previous reports, Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas has decided to hold out of the team's mandatory minicamp due to disappointment over his contract situation.

Footballguys view: Thomas is set to make a base salary of $8.5 million in 2018, and the Seahawks can fine him around $85,000 if he misses the three days of mandatory work. He wants a new deal and Seattle was rumored to be shopping him earlier this year to no avail. Seattle is going to look much different on defense in 2018 and it would help their transition if a guy like Thomas can stick around.

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise has 'looked good' during OTAs, according to head coach Pete Carroll, but Carroll said Prosise is 'battling' for a roster spot.

Footballguys view: Prosise is clearly on the bubble this year. He's a speedy change-of-pace back who can make plays in space. It might be difficult to find a spot for him in the rotation with rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny set to be the lead back in 2018.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett finally back to 100 percent    Thu Jun 7, 08:23 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett is now fully healthy from the leg injury he suffered at the end of the 2016 season, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who said it was 'obvious' that Lockett was not 100 percent last year. 'It's really been a blessing for him to be able to get his legs back underneath him,' Carroll said. 'Last year was a struggle for him, the offseason for certain, but throughout the season itself he was not able to do things in the same manner that he had done it in years past, and that's really just workload. He just couldn't do as much, had to take care of his legs more. So he's back at it, he's really playing fast, he has no restrictions of any kind of after effects of the surgery of last year or since he's been hurt.'

Footballguys view: Seattle's passing game will have a different look in 2018. Guys like TE Jimmy Graham and WR Paul Richardson are gone, so having a healthy Lockett would greatly help out. The team is looking for a no.2 WR opposite Doug Baldwin and that could be Lockett.

  Seahawks | Chris Carson standing out    Thu Jun 7, 07:50 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson, who is now healthy from last season's ankle injury, has 'stood out' during organized team activities, according to head coach Pete Carroll, from a physical conditioning standpoint. Carroll gushed how 'he hasn't missed one snap of anything' and 'he's just looked so fit and just so cut and quick and explosive and all of that.'

Footballguys view: Carson has flashed a bit during his time with the Seahawks, but he's facing a tough road to playing time. The team spent a first-round pick in 2018 on San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny, and he should be in line to be the team's feature back. We'll see where Carson can wind up on the depth chart.

Seattle Seahawks OT George Fant (knee) is expected to be ready to go for training camp. He's capable of taking part in activities right now, according to head coach Pete Carroll, but there's no need to rush him back.

Footballguys view: The Seattle offensive line needs help, and getting Fant back will be a big step forward, but there is still a long way to go. Russell Wilson has done magic without a decent line, and we are excited to see what he can do with a competent one.

Seattle Seahawks WR Brandon Marshall officially signed his one-year contract worth up to $2 million Wednesday, May 30. FB Marcus X. Martin was waived in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Marshall is not even close to the player he used to be, but he could help on a Seahawks team that lacks depth after Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. At best, Marshall is on track to be a WR5 for fantasy owners in 2018.

  Seahawks | Kam Chancellor wants to play    Wed May 30, 09:36 AM

'If my body says don't play, I'm not playing,' Chancellor said. 'I don't see myself as old. I feel like I'm still in my prime, so it's not an age thing at all. It's just a matter of structural issues in the neck and if they change or not.'

Footballguys view: Per Liz Mathews (USA Today) on Twitter, Chancellor will undergo a neck scan in late June/early July. We'll see if he can receive medical clearance to continue playing in 2018. With a $6.8 million base salary already fully guaranteed, Chancellor is going to play if he can.

Free-agent WR Brandon Marshall (Giants) is signing a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, May 29, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks have a thin WR depth chart behind Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. Marshall is no lock for the 53-man roster, but if healthy he could contribute as a part-time player. Fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited about his prospects in 2018. Marshall is no longer the player he used to be, and his top-5 season of 2015 is well in the past. If healthy and contributing, we see Marshall as more of a WR5 from a fantasy lens.
