  • Jamal Adams, Seahawks Expected To Get Contract Done

    Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that he's confident the team will get a long-term contract extension worked out with All-Pro safety Jamal Adams, who was excused from mandatory minicamp this week for personal reasons. Carroll also said the team expects Adams to be present for training camp at the end of July. Adams is due $9.86 million in the final year of his deal in 2021. The 25-year-old has been regarded as one of the top safeties in the league because of his versatility, and he has been named to three straight Pro Bowls in his four NFL seasons. Adams is an elite pass-rushing defensive back, which is why he should be the top defensive back off the board in IDP drafts.

  • Tyler Lockett Says New Offense Allows For More Freedom

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett said that offensive coordinator Shane Waldron's new scheme gives him and the other receivers more freedom. "I think with the offense Shane brings in, it gives us more freedom. More freedom to be able to be the receivers that we can be. We got free range to do a lot of stuff," Lockett said. The pass-catcher also used the word "sophisticated" when describing the new offense. It remains to be seen if Waldron can get Seattle's offense out of the funk that they experienced in the second half of last season, but they certainly have the weapons to do it with Lockett, D.K. Metcalf and Russell Wilson. Lockett will have big games, but his fantasy managers last year were all too familiar with the fact that he would disappear for stretches, too. 48.7 percent of his production in 2020 came from just three games. It's fun to think about how good this offense can be, but targeting Lockett as anything more than a WR2 could be foolish.

  • Duane Brown Wants A New Deal

    Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Duane Brown was present for the start of the team's mandatory minicamp this week, but he wants a new deal as he enters the final year of his contract in 2021. Brown is set to make $10 million this year, and his contract situation is one to monitor this summer. The 35-year-old former first-rounder in 2008 by the Houston Texans missed four games due to injury in 2019, but he continues to play at a high level when he's on the field. The problem is that All-Pro safety Jamal Adams, who would also like a new deal, is likely ahead of Brown in terms of team priorities. It remains to be seen if the veteran Brown can continue to play at a high level near the end of his career, but the four-time Pro Bowler has gotten it done in recent seasons.

  • Jamal Adams Excused From Mandatory Minicamp

    The Seattle Seahawks have excused safety Jamal Adams from this week's mandatory minicamp for personal reasons, according to a source. The 25-year-old All-Pro is seeking a new contract, but his absence isn't related to any kind of holdout. Seattle traded multiple high-end draft picks to acquire Adams' services from the New York Jets last offseason, and he finished with 83 tackles (11 for loss), 14 QB hits, three passes defensed, one forced fumble and a career-high 9.5 sacks in just 12 games. The three-time Pro Bowler isn't your typical strong safety, as he often comes up into the box to defend against the run and pressure the opposing quarterback. He's one of the best at what he does and should be the first defensive back off the board in IDP drafts.

  • Russell Wilson Wants To Stay In Seattle

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson joined several of his teammates in reporting for the final week of organized team activities, a sign that, at least for now, the tension between the organization and Wilson has subsided. Wilson had some frustrations about the way last season went, which led to some trade rumors, but ultimately Seattle is where he wants to be. The 32-year-old never requested a trade, and the whole situation has made his relationships with head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider stronger. With new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, Seattle's offense is expected to be more up-tempo, which is what Wilson favors. Wilson was the MVP favorite in the first half last year before the offense tanked, and he had a career-high 42 combined touchdowns. Despite the poor finish to 2021, Wilson remains a high-end QB1.
