  Seahawks | Make two roster moves    Tue May 19, 07:10 AM

Free-agent TE Earnest Pettway (Chiefs) and DL Charles Tuaau (Chiefs) were both signed by the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, May 18.

Footballguys view: Tuaau regularly made plays on the other side of the line of scrimmage when he was the Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Year at Texas A&M (Commerce). Pettway was an athletic tight end from Villanova with good speed down the seam. Both are long shots to make the final roster or even the practice squad in Seattle.

  Seahawks | Robert Turbin had surgery    Thu May 14, 05:23 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Robert Turbin (hip) underwent hip surgery this offseason, according to sources. No timetable was disclosed for his recovery.

Footballguys view: Turbin hasn't really shown much yet. Marshawn Lynch seems to be staying another year, and there's no telling if either Turbin or Christine Michael are a replacement for him together or separately. Michael has an ADP of RB70 (13.11) in 12-team PPR leagues, while Turbin is undrafted in those re-draft leagues.

  Seahawks | Want to keep Tarvaris Jackson    Mon May 11, 02:17 AM

Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Seahawks) may be brought back by the team in 2015. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters the team wants to bring Jackson back and is interested in continuing negotiations.

Footballguys view: Jackson should be brought back to give the team valuable depth behind Russell Wilson. He knows the offense like the back of his hand, and Jackson is a good backup quarterback.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett to have big role?    Sun May 10, 11:17 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett was used all over the field during rookie minicamp and was praised by head coach Pete Carroll. He is in line to return punts and kicks and see action in the passing game.

Footballguys view: We love this addition for the Seahawks. Lockett is a smaller but explosive receiver with a dash of Antonio Brown (Steelers) to his game. He's got the quickness to get open underneath, he's fearless over the middle and Lockett can score anytime he touches the ball. The nature of the offense is to run the ball early and often, but Lockett will make the passing game more dangerous.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson talks not close    Fri May 8, 10:22 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has a four-year offer on the table believed to be close to $80 million. The two sides are believed to be more than $10 million apart.

Footballguys view: We have a feeling something will get done. Wilson is in the final year of his rookie contract and has a paltry cap number around $1.7 million. They'll be working diligently to find a new agreement, but the team could always place the franchise tag on him after the season if need be.

  Seahawks | Jermaine Kearse signs tender    Wed May 6, 12:58 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR Jermaine Kearse signed his restricted free-agent tender Tuesday, May 5, according to a source. The Seahawks had put a second-round tender on Kearse.

Footballguys view: It's not surprising that no other team wanted to surrender a second-round pick for Kearse had he been signed away. The Seahawks will keep him around, and Kearse will once again serve as a deep threat for their passing game.

  Seahawks | Bruce Irvin's option won't be picked up    Mon May 4, 01:00 PM

Seattle Seahawks LB Bruce Irvin will not have his fifth-year option picked up by the Seahawks, and Irvin was not happy about the decision, sending out several profane tweets Monday, May 4. The option would have paid him $7.8 million in 2016.

Footballguys view: This move was expected. Irvin will play the 2015 season at $1.5 million and become a free agent after the season. Head coach Pete Carroll said the team still hopes to re-sign the talented pass-rusher.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham to work on blocking    Sun May 3, 09:47 AM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is committed to learning to block since he was traded to the Seahawks, according to offensive line coach Tom Cable.

Footballguys view: They didn't bring Graham in to block. It's good that he's working to improve, but Graham is there to make plays as a receiver.

  Seahawks | NFC champs select Tyler Lockett    Fri May 1, 09:54 PM

The Seattle Seahawks selected Kansas State WR Tyler Lockett in Round 3 (No. 69 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Lockett can play inside or out, and is a phenomenal punt returner. A little small, but overall a very good player and a playmaker in multiple ways for Seattle.

  Seahawks | Not picking up option on Bruce Irvin    Wed Apr 29, 11:25 PM

The Seattle Seahawks do not plan on picking up the fifth-year option on LB Bruce Irvin, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Irvin may be on the trade block as there are rumors the Seahawks will ship him off to Atlanta at some point during the 2015 NFL draft. Stay tuned.

  Seahawks | Martellus Bennett was pursued by SEA    Wed Apr 29, 03:30 PM

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett was the subject of trade talks between the Bears and Seattle Seahawks before Seattle traded for TE Jimmy Graham this offseason. Bennett is reportedly currently being shopped.

Footballguys view: Seattle obviously wouldn't want Bennett now that Jimmy Graham is on board, but it shows a previous willingness to part with Bennett on Chicago's part.

  Seahawks | Mike Marboe works out    Sat Apr 25, 02:57 AM

Idaho C Mike Marboe had a private workout with the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, April 24.

Footballguys view: Marboe has plenty of starting experience from his time in college with the Vandals. He measures in right around 295-300 pounds and is rather light on his feet. He won't work in a power system, although he does understand leverage. Marboe should be on the radar of teams looking for a zone-blocking center who can work well in space at the second level of the defense.

  Seahawks | Dorial Green-Beckham wanted by Seattle?    Thu Apr 23, 10:59 PM

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham is an option for the Seattle Seahawks if he is available with the 63rd in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We would be shocked if Green-Beckham fell that far in the draft. He's a top-10 talent wise, but off-field issues will cause his stock to dip end of the first slightly, not end of the second! Anything can happen in the draft, but we don't see a scenario where Green-Beckham is on the board when the Seahawks are up.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson not leaving football    Wed Apr 22, 01:51 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he loves baseball, but he has no plans to leave football. 'I love playing the game of football, to be one of 32 men (starting NFL quarterbacks) in the world who get to do what I do. It's a special thing and I've been able to play in two Super Bowls and I'm only 26 years old. That's been a blessing,' Wilson said. He also said he'll never give up the dream of playing two sports professionally.

Footballguys view: This is exactly the kind of story that bubbles up to the surface in the offseason when we're a bit bored. The age of two-sport players is likely over.

  Seahawks | Lemuel Jeanpierre re-signs    Mon Apr 20, 05:52 PM

Seattle Seahawks C Lemuel Jeanpierre re-signed to an undisclosed deal Monday, April 20.

Footballguys view: Jeanpierre has been with the Seahawks since 2011. He was released prior to the 2014 season and then brought back in November after starter Max Unger was sidelined with ankle and knee injuries. He ended up starting three games for Seattle and gives them quality depth at the position.

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.

  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 | 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.

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

  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.

Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (knee) might not be ready for the start of the season, head coach Pete Carroll indicated Wednesday, March 25.

  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 | 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.

  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.
