  Seahawks | K.J. Wright wants to finish career in Seattle    Wed Jun 29, 02:46 PM

Free-agent LB K.J. Wright (Raiders) said he wants to finish his career with the Seattle Seahawks. 'I love ball but I'm not willing to pick up and leave my family like I did last year [playing for the Raiders],' Wright said. 'I'm not doing that again. So I think it's pretty well known where I stand... how I want to end my career. If it's not in Seattle, then I'll be all good.' The Tacoma News Tribune's Gregg Bell writes that a reunion between Wright and the Seahawks is unlikely.

  Seahawks | K.J. Wright endorses Geno Smith    Wed Jun 29, 01:05 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith got an endorsement for the starting job from former teammate and free-agent LB K.J. Wright. 'I'll tell you not Baker Mayfield,' Wright said. 'Not Drew Lock. We ain't gonna play those games. I'm team Geno all day.' Wright went on to explain why Smith is his choice. 'Geno was good.. He was scout team quarterback. The dude has a cannon for an arm. He's intellectual, you know, having those two-minute drills during practice throughout the week, the man can play. Just trust him, just trust Geno.'

Footballguys view: Wright knows Smith's game, and there are plenty of players who feel he deserves a shot as the starter. Lock came over in part of the deal with the Broncos for QB Russell Wilson, but there were rumblings that he was a throw in that Seattle didn't necessarily want. No matter if that's true or not, Lock is there to push Smith for the starting job...and neither one is a great starting option for Seattle in 2022.

  Seahawks | DK Metcalf expected to get paid    Wed Jun 29, 11:58 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf is expected to be one of the next wide receivers to get a contract extension that will make him one of the highest-paid players in the league, per sources.

Footballguys view: With Terry McLaurin getting a three-year, $71 million extension ($53.5 million fully guaranteed) on Tuesday it's now Metcalf's turn to break the bank. Seattle has had conversations, but head coach Pete Carroll termed the talks as 'quiet' with things ramping up in the month of July. Metcalf needs to get his money now as catching passes from QB Geno Smith or QB Drew Lock won't do much to enhance his value.

  Seahawks | TE Fant More Involved?    Tue Jun 28, 02:30 PM

Brady Henderson, from ESPN.com, believes Seattle Seahawks TE Noah Fant could be more involved this year regardless of who the quarterback is. Henderson reports that "there's a belief in the organization that whichever quarterback ends up starting for Seattle will be more inclined to throw to tight ends than [Russell] Wilson was."

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs have a higher-than-expected outlook for Fant this season. His current ADP of TE15 (13.01) is a bit alarming as we don't know yet who is going to be the starting quarterback for the Seahawks....and the current choices of Geno Smith or Drew Lock aren't great. Fant flashed talent with the Broncos but former Denver OC Pat Shurmur didn't know how to use him properly. Perhaps that changes and he flourishes, regardless of the QB situation, now that he's in Seattle.

  Seahawks | RB Penny 'In The Driver's Seat'    Sat Jun 25, 03:32 PM

Brady Henderson, from ESPN.com, reports Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is 'in the driver's seat' to be the featured back.

Footballguys view: No surprise here, and when he's healthy Penny is a talented runner who can produce. However, injuries have been a major problem for the former first-round pick. That's why Seattle drafted Kenneth Walker (Michigan State) to help carry the load (and perhaps take over as the lead back eventually). Penny and Walker will carry the rock for Seattle while Chris Carson (neck) continues on his road to recovery. While healthy, Penny has RB2 value for Fantasy GMs and he's currently getting drafted as RB28 (6.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | SEA, Baker Mayfield have mutual interest    Fri Jun 24, 02:33 PM

The Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield have mutual interest in a trade, per sources.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks and Panthers have both been linked to Mayfield, but the sticking point was the Browns willingness to pick up some or most of his 18+ million dollar salary. If both are in on Mayfield, that could create pressure for one to cave to the Browns terms for the trade. Either way, Mayfield is highly unlikely to be a Brown when the season opens, even if Deshaun Watson is suspended for the season... or longer.

  Seahawks | Seattle still interested in Baker Mayfield    Wed Jun 22, 06:32 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is still a trade option for the Seattle Seahawks, and the Seahawks would be open to signing him to an extension if they acquire him, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This report has been out there for some time, but the part about Seattle willing to extend Mayfield is new. The Browns are willing to pay about half of Mayfield's salary, but that may not be enough for Seattle to be enticed to trade for him. The Seahawks are looking at either Geno Smith or Drew Lock to start at quarterback this year...and neither one is a great option. We'll see if Mayfield is traded before the start of training camp.

  Seahawks | 'Doing Everything They Can' for WR Metcalf     Wed Jun 22, 03:56 PM

Liz Mathews, from Seahawks Wire, reports Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is (gasp) optimistic when it comes to contract negotiations with WR D.K. Metcalf. "He's a wonderful player, he has so much to offer the world, and I just don't want him to miss this opportunity, where we can't figure it out. So, we'll do everything that we can." Carroll said.

Footballguys view: Metcalf is holding out for a new contract, but there has been little news about any movement in a positive direction to get this done. He's deserving of being compensated as one of the best wide receivers in the league, and Metcalf should get the big-money contract he's been seeking. Catching passes from Geno Smith and/or Drew Lock won't do much for his numbers in 2022, so Metcalf needs to get his money now...and hope for a franchise QB (rookie?) to be added in 2023.

  Seahawks | SEA has had conversations with DK Metcalf    Sun Jun 12, 10:15 AM

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team has had recent discussions with WR DK Metcalf regarding a contract extension. Carroll characterized the talks as 'semi-quiet' but said the next few weeks leading up to training camp would be important to the process.

Footballguys view: Everything coming out of Seattle indicates the team is serious about getting Metcalf secured for the long term, but we've also learned that the team will create a positive impression about this kind of situation no matter the actual state of affairs. Metcalf's camp must know that the quarterback group - even if Baker Mayfield or Jimmy Garoppolo is added - is unlikely to enhance his value going into a contract year, so they are smart to try to lock in his value now.

Seattle Seahawks DB Quandre Diggs (leg) is planning to be ready for training camp, he told reporters on Tuesday, June 7.

  Seahawks | No timeline yet for Chris Carson's return    Fri Jun 10, 04:22 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) is committed to continuing to rehab from his offseason neck surgery but has not been given a timeline to return to football activities, according to Heavy.com's Jonathan Adams.'I see myself playing until I feel like stopping. My mindset is never to give up. So, I'm staying positive like I said, and continue to fight and get back onto the field. ... Not trying to rush it, I'm just trying to take it one day at a time. Just keep rehabbing, keep getting better. Keep building strength and then go from there. But like I said, there's no timeline for me,' Carson said.

Footballguys view: There really is no way of knowing if Carson will be able to return to the football field. We don't want to sound too dire, but neck injuries are complicated to deal with and have ended plenty of careers in the NFL from years past. If healthy, Carson would have to work his way into a backfield that is jam-packed with talent. Rashaad Penny should be the lead back until he gets banged up, and rookie Kenneth Walker was arguably the best back in the 2022 NFL draft so he should get a sizeable role too (and eventually take over as the starter).

  Seahawks | Kenneth Walker dealt with injury    Thu Jun 9, 09:50 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III (hamstring) missed a portion of mandatory minicamp while dealing with a hamstring injury, head coach Pete Carroll said Thursday, June 9.

Footballguys view: You never want to see this for any rookie, but especially one that only has Rashaad Penny to overcome on the depth chart. Penny is injury prone and he too already had a hamstring issue this summer, so we'll have to watch closely to see who is healthier in camp. Walker's ADP is still very palatable even with the risk this injury adds.

  Seahawks | Geno Smith the frontrunner     Thu Jun 9, 09:46 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith remains ahead of QB Drew Lock in the competition for the starting quarterback job, head coach Pete Carroll said Thursday, June 9.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks seem to want to get excited about Lock, who they got in the Russell Wilson trade, but Smith has more experience, including with the Seahawks, and the team was competitive with him at quarterback last year. DK Metcalf was also more than serviceable with Smith on the field, so Smith winning this job would be good news for him - if he doesn't hold out for a new deal.

  Seahawks | Gabe Jackson recovering from surgery    Thu Jun 9, 08:50 PM

Seattle Seahawks OG Gabe Jackson (knee) has not been participating in practice this offseason because he is recovering from knee surgery.

Footballguys view: Jackson is one of the most important offensive line pieces in Seattle. If he has any setbacks or problems in camp, it could signal a slide for an offense that doesn't have much to hang its hat on right now.

  Seahawks | Hope To Get Something Done with WR Metcalf    Thu Jun 9, 04:26 PM

Bob Condotta, from the Seattle Times, reports Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said "These are crucial weeks to get something done." when asked about the contract situation of WR D.K. Metcalf.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks want to get something done with Metcalf, and he wants to be paid a top dollar contract for a wide receiver. Metcalf's play could be held back this season by poor QB play, so the sooner he can get paid the better. The two sides have talked but nothing is close to getting done. However, the team seems to be intent on finding a way to make Metcalf happy.

  Seahawks | TE Fant 'Spectacular' Per Carroll    Thu Jun 9, 04:25 PM

John Boyle, from Seahawks.com, reports Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said TE Noah Fant "had maybe the most spectacular camp of anybody."

Footballguys view: Fant has talent, but the Broncos offense under OC Pat Shurmur didn't know how to use him. He's an "F" tight end who can attack the seam with speed. Fant is a TE2 for Fantasy GMs but the upside is there for him to be more - even with 'meh' QB play from either Geno Smith or Drew Lock.

Per Carroll's press conference there will be more assessments in two weeks to determine Carson's availability for the season. Seattle has Rashaad Penny as the lead back with rookie Kenneth Walker ready for a large role on the ground as well.

  Seahawks | Will Dissly sidelined    Wed Jun 8, 07:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Will Dissly (illness) has missed the last two practices because of an illness.

Footballguys view: Dissly has talent as a "Y" tight end who can do good work as both a blocker and a receiver when healthy. Staying healthy has been a problem for him over his pro career. The Seahawks added TE Noah Fant when they traded QB Russell Wilson to the Broncos, and Fant should be the leading pass-catcher for them at the position.

  Seahawks | DK Metcalf's absence unexcused    Wed Jun 8, 10:06 AM

Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf's absence from mandatory minicamp is not excused, and he could be subject to fines of $93,000 or more.

Footballguys view: Metcalf is in the final year of his rookie contract, and he's going to end up with a new contract that makes him one of the highest paid wide receivers in the league. Seattle has been dragging their feet, and Metcalf wants to get paid before his stats take a hit catching passes from below average quarterbacks Geno Smith or Drew Lock. Stay tuned.

  Seahawks | DK Metcalf sitting out minicamp    Tue Jun 7, 02:12 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (foot) is not present for mandatory minicamp, according to sources. While Metcalf is known to be rehabbing from foot surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media suggests the absence has more to do with the lack of movement on a contract extension.

Footballguys view: What's interesting to note is that Metcalf was around for some voluntary workouts earlier this offseason. No contract extension is in sight right now, but deals get done at deadlines. Seattle has the intention of keeping Metcalf around as a key member of the offense, so perhaps something comes together on the contract front before the start of training camp.

  Seahawks | Tyler Lockett considered retiring    Sun Jun 5, 03:15 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett recently opened up about his mental health issues and says he considered retiring on multiple occasions. 'Two years out of my seven years in the NFL thus far I played through depression and anxiety and almost quit and had my best year,' Lockett tweeted. 'I played through trauma another year and had my best year. Moral of the story: just keep going. You never know what's waiting on the other side!'

Footballguys view: It's good that more players are coming forward to openly talk about mental health. Lockett is a playmaker who has fought through a lot to make his way in the NFL. This year, Seattle's offense is in transition as they'll move forward without QB Russell Wilson. That means Lockett's production could change depending on who wins the starting QB job and how their offense is now structured.

  Seahawks | Noah Fant excited about offense    Fri Jun 3, 07:33 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Noah Fant said he is excited about playing in the team's offense because he believes the play-action pass will be favorable to tight ends.

Footballguys view: The Broncos never used Fant the right way...perhaps outside of a small handful of games at the end of his rookie season. Fant spent two years languishing in the Pat Shurmur offense, and then he gets dealt to the Seahawks this offseason as part of the deal for QB Russell Wilson. The ability is there for Fant to perform as a TE2 with upside for Fantasy GMs. We'd feel better about his situation if we knew who his quarterback was going to be. Right now, Geno Smith is the starter and Drew Lock is the backup. However, Seattle is looking into adding guys like Cam Newton or Baker Mayfield. The quarterback situation may hold back this offense...and Fant's numbers.

  Seahawks | Seattle interested if Baker Mayfield gets cut    Thu Jun 2, 03:46 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is highly unlikely to be released anytime soon, but at least one source told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer recently that the Seattle Seahawks would be interested in signing him if Mayfield reaches the open market at some point this summer.

Footballguys view: This is what happens when you have Geno Smith running with the first team and Drew Lock (a throw in on the Russell Wilson deal) running with the second team. Mayfield or Cam Newton could wind up in the NorthWest if/when the Seahawks decide to make a move.

  Seahawks | SEA has interest in Cam Newton    Wed Jun 1, 02:04 PM

Free-agent QB Cam Newton (Panthers) is receiving interest from the Seattle Seahawks, per source. The Carolina Panthers also remain in the mix.

Newton is not the same player he used to be, but he could be a better starting option than either of the Seahawks current options.

  Seahawks | WR Goodwin Brings Something 'Unique' to Offense    Sun May 29, 01:25 PM

Josh Alper, from Pro Football Talk, reports Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll likes what he's seen from free agent addition WR Marquise Goodwin. "I'm excited, anytime somebody brings something unique, which this guy is historically really, really fast," Carroll said, via Liz Mathews of USAToday.com. "We played against him and we have respect for him from all of that. We really thought, seriously, about drafting him way back then, so we are happy to get it done."

Footballguys view: Carroll loves everyone...he's like the NFL's version of Jackie Moon. Everybody love everybody, and Carroll loves Goodwin to be sure. In all seriousness, there's not much to Goodwin's game outside of his Olympic speed. From a fantasy perspective, Goodwin won't do much as a deep threat on a run-heavy offense.

Footballguys view: Penny is one of the most injury prone players in the league. He's talented, and Fantasy GMs who had him last year in the fantasy playoffs know he can produce at a high level. However, it's difficult to trust him because he always seems to be banged up. Seattle has Penny and rookie Kenneth Walker to lead the way on the ground in 2022.

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Marquise Goodwin (Bears) signed an undisclosed contract with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, May 23.

  Seahawks | Seattle expected to sign Marquise Goodwin    Sun May 22, 09:33 PM

Free-agent WR Marquise Goodwin (Bears) is expected to sign with the Seattle Seahawks, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times.

Footballguys view: Goodwin still has speed to take the top off the defense. He appeared in 14 games last season for the Bears, snaring 20 passes for 313 yards and one touchdown. Seattle wants to run the ball early and often, so adding Goodwin won't make much of a fantasy impact as he'd be competing for the no.3 job (at best) on the depth chart.

  Seahawks | May Still Have Interest in QB Mayfield    Sun May 22, 01:52 PM

Jeff Howe, from The Athletic, reports the Seattle Seahawks "haven't ruled out" trading for Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield.

Smith has a slight edge to Lock in the battle for the starting quarterback position, but neither one is a great option as Seattle moves into the post-Russell Wilson era. If the Browns agree to take on more of Mayfield's $18.9 million, fully guaranteed salary a trade might get done. Stay tuned.

  Seahawks | Geno Smith has slight lead for QB job    Thu May 19, 07:15 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Geno Smith has a small advantage over QB Drew Lock for the starting quarterback job at this point since he is more familiar with the offense, according to offensive coordinator Shane Waldron.

Footballguys view: Nobody should be surprised by this. Lock was never really that good with the Broncos, and he's learning a new offense - again. He struggled to pick up Rich Scangarello's system as a rookie and was spoon fed plays by the former Broncos OC in his headset. Under Pat Shurmur, Lock had no better success when it came to picking up the offense - and that was a system stuck in the 90s. We'll see if Lock can look better than Smith in training camp and the preseason.
