  Seahawks | Seattle signs eight UDFAs    Fri May 14, 07:25 PM

  Seahawks | Two draft choices under contract    Fri May 14, 05:29 PM

Seattle Seahawks second-round draft choice WR D'Wayne Eskridge and sixth-round draft choice OT Stone Forsythe agreed to terms on four-year contracts with the Seahawks Friday, May 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Eskridge can flat out fly down the field. He averaged over 20 yards per catch over the last two seasons and is one of the most explosive players in this draft class. Eskridge is not a refined route runner and has limited experience lining up in the slot. Undersized at 5-foot, 9-inches and 190 pounds, we'll see how his blazing speed and limited route tree impact him as a rookie.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett a big-play threat in the slot    Sun May 9, 11:02 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett has amassed 31 catches of at least 15 yards out of the slot since the start of the 2019 season - tied for the most in the NFL over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Lockett is dangerous out of the slot when healthy. He's quick after the catch and reliable for QB Russell Wilson. Seattle may try to go through Wilson and the passing attack more this year (which is a good idea), and that may help the fantasy value of all players in the passing game. Lockett has a current ADP of WR23 (5.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | D'Wayne Eskridge Versatile     Thu May 6, 10:19 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge could play 'a number of different positions' in addition to wide receiver, according to general manager John Schneider.

Footballguys view: Eskridge has speed, speed and more speed to his game. He's not nuanced as a route-runner, so Eskridge will need to work on that in the pros. However, he can line up and fly by defenders down the sideline to take the top off the defense. If Seattle goes more "11 personnel" (three WR sets) then Eskridge could get more targets than some are projecting.

Street free-agent TE Nick Guggemos signed with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, May 6. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Guggemos was a wide receiver in college at Division III University of St. Thomas. He's going to try and convert to tight end in the NFL.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny's option declined    Mon May 3, 09:27 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny's fifth-year option was declined Monday, May 3.

Footballguys view: Penny was overdrafted in the first round a few years ago and he's done little to prove that he can be the lead back some thought he could be coming out of San Diego state. Injuries have been his biggest problem in the NFL. He's got one more year left to prove himself with Seattle, working once again behind Chris Carson.

  Seahawks | Josh Johnson heading to Seattle    Sat May 1, 09:44 PM

Undrafted free-agent RB Josh X. Johnson (Louisiana-Monroe) agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Johnson is your typical compact runner who has a low center of gravity and is tough to bring down with arm tackles. He's got ability as a receiver and is known for jump cutting his way to daylight. We'll monitor him in super deep dynasty formats.

  Seahawks | Seattle adding Connor Wedington    Sat May 1, 09:37 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Connor Wedington (Stanford) announced that he agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Wedington stood out as a return man in college. As a receiver he has downfield speed but does not create separation consistently in his routes. Special teams is the way he'll make most of his pro impact.

  Seahawks | Cade Johnson picked up by Seattle    Sat May 1, 07:54 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Cade Johnson (South Dakota State) agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, May 1, according to a source. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Johnson performed really well at the Senior Bowl earlier this year. He was one of the most consistent performers on a daily basis and did a good job of catching most everything thrown his way. Making circus catches is second nature for Johnson, and he's got insane body control and sideline awareness. We're shocked he didn't get drafted on Day 3 and will be monitoring him in super deep dynasty formats.

  Seahawks | Seattle adding Tamorrion Terry    Sat May 1, 07:03 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Tamorrion Terry (Florida State) agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, May 1, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: It's a great deal for the Seahawks to get Terry undrafted. He was projected by many in the scouting community to be an early pick on Day 3. Terry has a good size/speed combination and can be moved all over the formation. He battled through some injuries with the Seminoles and needs to prove he's over the injury bug to make it in the NFL.

  Seahawks | Seattle confirms interest in Richard Sherman    Sat May 1, 06:14 PM

  Seahawks | D'Wayne Eskridge to move around    Sat May 1, 12:19 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR D'Wayne Eskridge's ability after the catch was a big reason the Seahawks selected him in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll said Eskridge could be integrated into the running game.

Footballguys view: Eskridge has speed, speed and more speed. He's quick off the line of scrimmage and has experience moving around the formation...although he did line up mostly outside.

  Seahawks | D'Onta Foreman to work out    Mon Apr 26, 04:30 PM

Free-agent RB D'Onta Foreman (Titans) is scheduled to work out for the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Foreman is a big bodied back who can grind down an opponent. The Seahawks are just updating their emergency list here as both Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny have been known to get banged up. Expect them to address the position at some point in the draft as well.

  Seahawks | Geno Smith returns to SEA    Thu Apr 22, 04:19 PM

Free-agent QB Geno Smith (Seahawks) re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, April 22. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Smith signed with Seattle back in 2019 and has been around as a backup option. He'll return to that role but may have competition to be the no.2 quarterback behind starter Russell Wilson.

  Seahawks | Rashaad Penny ready to roll    Wed Apr 21, 09:14 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (knee) is healthy heading into the 2021 season, and RB Chris Carson believes he and Penny can form an effective tandem. 'We both bring different things to the game, different attributes, but we complement each other so well,' Carson said. 'I just feel like his limit is ridiculous once he starts getting his feet wet in the game. I think it'll be something special.'

Footballguys view: Penny is ready to roll but will he stay ready? He's flashed a bit of talent during his pro career, but the former first-round pick has rarely stayed healthy for that long. Carson returns to likely lead the way in the backfield with Penny playing as a reserve for the Seahawks.

  Seahawks | At least three teams expressed interest in Chris Carson    Sat Apr 17, 09:10 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson received interest from the Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots and New York Jets during free agency earlier this offseason before he ultimately decided to return to the Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Carson got a bit of interest on the open market but decided that staying with the Seahawks was best for him. So long as he stays healthy, Carson will be the lead back in Seattle once again. Fantasy GMs are taking him off the board right now at RB21 (4.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson in Seattle for good?    Tue Apr 6, 04:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson reportedly gave DE Carlos Dunlap his assurance he isn't going anywhere else in 2021 before the latter re-signed with the Seahawks last month.

Footballguys view: Rumblings about Wilson being on the trade block have been going for a couple of months. There's even a list of four teams where Wilson would want to play according to reports. This all might be a year too early...or complete hogwash. The fact of the matter is that Wilson is likely to play with the Seahawks in 2021. After that? Only time will tell.

  Seahawks | DK Metcalf a master of the big play    Sun Apr 4, 10:53 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf leads the league with 19 receptions of at least 30 yards since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: That's what Metcalf did in college at Ole Miss, and that's what his game primarily is in the NFL. Metcalf is a better route runner than some give him credit for, but he's certainly great on a 'go' route where he can turn on the speed and track the ball down the field. Expect more of the same in 2021 and beyond.

  Seahawks | Gerald Everett looking to work with new QB    Fri Apr 2, 04:10 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Gerald Everett said he has talked with QB Russell Wilson about working out with him this offseason.

Footballguys view: Wilson does work out quite a bit during the offseason and Everett should be able to get together on several occasions outside the facility. If Everett hits on his potential, there is TE1 ability to his game. It's best to draft him as a high-upside TE2 and Everett has a current ADP of TE25 (14.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett signs extension    Wed Mar 31, 12:56 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett signed a four-year, $69.2 million extension Wednesday, March 31, that includes $37 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Coming off his first 100-catch season, Seattle wanted to wrap him up for the foreseeable future. Lockett and D.K. Metcalf give the Seahawks a great 1-2 punch at the wide receiver position. They still want to run the ball as much as possible, and that run-heavy approach does limit the fantasy value for the receivers. Lockett has a current ADP of 5.09 (WR23) in 12-team PPR leagues.
