Seahawks' Quandre Diggs Reveals He Was 'Blindsided' by Trade from Lions

Seattle Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs worked his way up from a sixth-round pick to team captain during his time in Detroit. He was stunned the Lions traded him to his new team after that journey...

Seahawks officially add Quandre Diggs, waive Jordan Roos

On Tuesday the Seattle Seahawks surprised many when they acquired Quandre Diggs from the Detroit Lions for next to nothing. John Schneider sent a fifth round pick to the Lions in exchange for Diggs and a seventh round pick. The pick swap trade brings a starting caliber defensive back to Seattle, whose secondary has been besieged by injuries and questionable play through the first seven games of the season.

According to Pete Carroll, starting safety...

Injury Update: Ed Dickson to return to practice next week

Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images

The Seattle Seahawks opened the season hot, in part because of the phenomenal play of second year tight end Will Dissly. Unfortunately, a torn Achilles tendon in Week 6 ended a second season in a row for Dissly, and left the Hawks with very little depth at the position following the trade of Nick Vannett to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

However, with a Week 8 contest against the Atlanta Falcons set for this weekend, Ed Dickson, who went on injured reserve...

Neanderball, Week 7: Seahawks vs. Ravens (2nd Quarter)

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the second installment of Week 7’s Neanderball. As with all good horror movies, we began in Part 1 with a generally upbeat experience that gave the audience a false sense of normalcy. Now is when the floorboards start creaking, the doors start slamming on their own, and the protagonists suggest splitting up to cover more ground.

All mentions of left and right are from the perspective of the Seattle Seahawks offense. The...

Seahawks razor-thin point differential is a big concern

Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images

The Seattle Seahawks just lost by double digits for the first time since December 17, 2017. It hasn’t happened very often in the Pete Carroll / Russell Wilson era, and the rarity doesn’t help the sting whatsoever.

The loss by 14 to the Baltimore Ravens brings Seattle’s total point differential this season to +5. They’ve scored 181 points to opponents’ 176. Plus five is not good, and is a worrisome potential indicator that a 5-2 team is not...

Seahawks line a weak spot through Week 7

All season long we’ve been tracking how the offensive line of the Seattle Seahawks stacks up against the other lines around the league, and this week is no different. In Week 7 the Hawks dropped an ugly game to the Baltimore Ravens, as the offense struggled in the rain and the defense had trouble with Lamar Jackson’s elusiveness. The Baltimore defensive line lacks any huge names, but they harassed Russell Wilson all day, while...

Former No. 3 overall Dion Jordan drawing interest

Former No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan is drawing interest from “a bunch” of NFL teams, agent Tareq Azim tells NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero. The defensive end is said to be at 8% body fat at 273 pounds and his rep says he’s feeling great both mentally and physically.  Jordan will be eligible to return from suspension in a few weeks, following his ban for PEDs. According to Jordan, he tested positive for Adderall after his therapeutic use exemption (TUE) expired. “I made a mistake,”...

Enemy Reaction: Seahawks trade for Quandre Diggs

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks didn’t win their last game, but somehow I ended up with an Enemy Reaction this week thanks to the generosity of the Detroit Lions.

In a surprise move, Detroit traded safety Quandre Diggs and a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Seahawks for a 2020 fifth-rounder. By most accounts, Diggs was a well-respected teammate and a pretty effective player during his time with the Lions. We don’t know how he’ll fit into Seattle’s defense, but I do...

All-22 Musings: Tre Flowers has his best game of 2019 vs Ravens

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The high flying Seahawks were overshadowed by the Lamar Jackson-led Ravens on Sunday, as Seattle dropped their second game of the season in a 30-16 defeat. This Seahawks defeat was all too similar to a few other ugly losses at CenturyLink Field: Coaching decisions that shape the narrative for the next week, an electrifying ground performance—Jackson, Alvin Kamara and Todd Gurley (in 2017) come to mind—and a sloppy game from Russell Wilson in even more...

Lions trade starting safety Quandre Diggs to Seahawks

The Lions will ship defensive back Quandre Diggs and a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Seahawks for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets.  Diggs, 26, was asked to carry more of the load this year after the Lions moved on from Glover Quin. The safety started in five contests this year, notching 20 tackles in total. For his work, Pro Football Focus has him graded as just the No. 61-ranked safety in the NFL, but historically, PFF’s advanced metrics have held him in...

To the surprise of no one, John Schneider and Pete Carroll stepped into a flurry of trades on Tuesday. Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Seahawks are trading a fifth round pick in 2020 to the Detroit Lions in exchange for defensive back Quandre Diggs and a 2021 seventh round pick.

D.J. Fluker set to return, status of Duane Brown still unknown

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks have played the last two games against the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens without the services of two of their starting five offensive linemen, Duane Brown and D.J. Fluker. In their place the last two games the Hawks have had George Fant and Jamarco Jones, so what will the line look like with the reeling Atlanta Falcons and their 1-6 record in store for Week 8?

According to head coach Pete Carroll, Fluker should play, but exactly...

For now, the Seattle Seahawks have a stretch where they play four consecutive primetime games. That’s probably not going to hold up at this rate.

The NFL currently has Seattle’s road game at the Philadelphia Eagles slotted in for Sunday Night Football on November 24th. Philadelphia is 3-4 and on the ropes. Over the next three games, they will be the 5-1 Buffalo Bills, home to the 3-3 Chicago Bears, and home again versus the unbeaten New England...

Carroll on 4th-and-3 FG decision: If not a FG, it would’ve been a punt

I’m not going to say that the missed Jason Myers field goal cost the Seattle Seahawks the game against the Baltimore Ravens, but it certainly was a damaging ten-point swing in Baltimore’s favor.

On Sunday, I brought up how Pete Carroll having Jason Myers kick from 53 yards out in bad weather over going for it on 4th-and-3 was a terrible decision, and hardly his first time this season choosing the conservative route over being aggressive. His call...
