How the Frank Clark contract talks are tied to the Russell Wilson contract talks

In the next few weeks Seattle Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark will become a very wealthy young man, either after being franchised tagged, after signing a large contract extension with the Hawks or signing with another team in free agency. Regardless of which of those three options comes to pass, Clark is set to receive a substantial raise from either the Seahawks or another team in the coming weeks.

One party that should be watching the Clark negotiations is the Russell Wilson camp....

The Drive: Tyrell Williams is a WR the Seahawks should pursue

Tyrell Williams is the quintessential sleeper free agent. He is days into his 27th year and therefore can be construed as being in his prime. Should they chose not to re-sign him, the Chargers will have reasons for not re-signing that do not indicate lack of performance by Williams. Keenan Allen was elected to the Pro Bowl in 2017 and 2018, and is under contract through 2020. Mike Williams was the seventh overall pick in 2017, performed roughly equally to Tyrell, and is under contract...

3 offseason needs the Seahawks must fill on the cheap

Seattle’s history under John Schneider is one plagued with early round mistakes. Yet the Seahawks have enjoyed success acquiring day 3 and undrafted free agent talent. Each year, different holes on the roster appear.

Every offseason, Schneider manages to fill out the 53 with Day 3 and UDFA players that go on to start for Seattle. It’s especially important the General Manager manages to do this once more, given the lack of available resources. So, let’s look at three needs that...

2019 salary cap overview for Seahawks heading into free agency

The start of the 2019 NFL league year right around the corner, meaning that free agency is on the minds of fans of not just the Seattle Seahawks, but fans of every NFL team. Thus, the important question is how much cap space the Hawks have heading into free agency and the 2019 season.

To start looking at the space available for Seattle in free agency, we’ll turn to OverTheCap.com first, where the Hawks are listed as having $51,994,716 in cap space. However, that is not a final number as...

Assessing possible LB signings for the Seahawks

Wrapping up our series on potential free agent targets for the Seahawks with the linebacker position. K.J. Wright is a free agent—could Bobby Wagner have a new running mate in 2019?

For the first time in his seven-year career, Bobby Wagner may have a new partner at the second level in 2019. K.J. Wright, the longest tenured Seahawk, is set to hit free agency in March. Wagner has repeatedly expressed his desire to see Wright return, as has Wright himself.

However, Seattle cannot make the...

Key dates for Seahawks offseason right around the corner

Friday is officially the second half of February, meaning that the NFL Scouting Combine is coming up very soon, but there are multiple dates and deadlines of notes coming up for the Seattle Seahawks that seem more important than in seasons past. In recent offseasons, the Hawks have had business to take care of, including extending pending free agents and tendering restricted free agents, but the next few weeks should be extremely busy by Seahawks offseason standards.

The first order of...

Ten years ago this month, Jim Mora was the Seahawks head coach

It was on this month, ten years ago that the Seattle Seahawks officially named Jim Mora as their new head coach. Mora was handpicked to replace the retiring Mike Holmgren, who went out with an equal parts awful and unlucky 4-12 disaster of a season. If the Holmgren era had grown stale, Mora was supposed to be the fresh face who would lead the team back to playoff appearances and Super Bowl contention. After all, he led the Atlanta Falcons to within a game of the Super Bowl in 2004!

Clayton: Just 4 draft picks? That won’t be a problem for Seahawks GM

Even though the Seahawks have only four picks in this year’s NFL Draft, don’t think they are handcuffed as they look ahead to free agency and the draft. Could WR Jermaine Kearse return to the Seahawks? General manager John Schneider is one of the best – if not the best – in making draft day trades that give him the ability to load up on good, young players. For the last couple of days before a draft, he’ll lock himself in his office and try to think through how he can move back,...

Assessing possible DL signings for the Seahawks

Every offseason, the Seahawks replenish their depth along the defensive line. A couple high-upside players headline their potential options this year.

Throughout the Pete Carroll and John Schneider era, regardless of where the Seahawks’ pressing needs have been in a given offseason, they’ve continuously added to the defensive line. It’s perhaps the group they’ve kept the freshest year-in and year-out, and that trend should continue in the coming months.

Seattle can feel great about...

Which recent Seahawks draft picks have earned themselves a raise?

The offseason is starting to truly get into full gear, with teams starting the process of extending soon to be free agents and making cap cuts prior to the start of the 2019 league year. Thus, it’s as good a time as any to take a quick look at some of the members of the recent draft classes for the Seattle Seahawks and see which players have earned themselves a raise.

Obviously, certain members of the team that have been drafted in the past few years have played their way into raises when...

Draft on tape: WR Terry McLaurin’s separation quickness perfect for Seahawks

Terry McLaurin would help the Seattle Seahawks immensely. The former Ohio State Buckeye is exactly what Seattle looks for in a receiver.

Two weeks ago, I dared to dream about the Seahawks landing a dynamic, run-after-catch threat in the 2019 NFL Draft. I hypothesized that Deebo Samuel could be the guy but acknowledged it would be “grossly irresponsible” for Seattle to spend a high pick on a wide receiver, given their more pressing needs.

McLaurin as a pick feels more realistic. Testing...

NFC West is and will continue to be loaded with pass rushers

Frank Clark is the Seattle Seahawks top priority, but with Pete Carroll already saying several times that Clark isn’t going anywhere — meaning that they’ll franchise tag him if need be — he almost becomes a de facto non-priority. The Clark situation, for now, is all but settled and they’ll tag him when the opportunity comes up in a week to when the deadline hits on March 5. Therefore, the second priority kind of becomes the first priority, so what is the second priority for the...

Why the Seahawks could return to the RB market in free agency

Chris Carson topped 1000 yards in 2018, while Rashaad Penny is a first round selection entering his second season. Why might the Seahawks return to the RB market?

With both Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny under team control, calling running back a need for the Seattle Seahawks is peculiar. However, the Seahawks have shown this was an area they want to address through a couple actions over the past nine months.

The first was their focus on a specific skill set at the position in the lead up...
