  • Drew Lock Saw Snaps With First-Team Offense

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock is expected to be the backup to Geno Smith to begin the season. However, the organization wants to give both players an opportunity to show what they can do. On Friday, Lock took first-team snaps on offense, which is a bit surprising. Smith has received a bulk of the work early in camp, but they also want to see what they have in Lock. The former second round pick has failed to make much of an impact through his first three seasons. There's a chance he does receive starts in Seattle, but Smith seems like the more reliable option between the two players.

  • With Chris Carson gone, can Rashaad Penny 'take off' as Seahawks' RB1?

    The light came on for Penny at the end of the last season, putting him in position to be the premier back the Seahawks thought he could be.

  • Jamal Adams Returns To Practice

    Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams (hand) returned to training camp practice on Monday after missing the last two practices. He wore a cast over the left hand that he re-injured at the end of the team's first camp practice. Adams didn't appear to be limited in practice on Monday, and any surgery that he has on his left hand likely won't be until after the 2022 season. The 26-year-old All-Pro safety played with a cast on his hand for part of last season and finished with 87 tackles (56 solo), four tackles for loss, two interceptions and five passes defensed in 12 games. It was also the first year in his five NFL seasons that he didn't record a sack. Although Adams will have to play through his hand injury this year, he's still in the conversation to be the first defensive back off the board in IDP leagues.

  • Rashaad Penny To Be Clear-Cut No. 1 RB

    Chris Carson's retirement means that Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny will enter the 2022 season as the team's clear-cut No. 1 option for the first time in his career. But the "as-long-as-he-stays-healthy" qualifier might apply to him more than any player in the NFL given that he's missed 30 of a possible 69 games in his career due to injury (playoffs included). Penny has also carried the ball 20-plus times in a game just twice in his career. The Seahawks will manage his snaps and give some work to rookie Kenneth Walker III, but the second-rounder will also have to prove to the coaching staff that he's ready. Penny has plenty of potential but also a low floor because of his injury history. The 26-year-old was one of the best RBs in the league down the stretch in 2021, but his extensive injury history makes him more of an RB3 target with upside in drafts.

  • Pete Carroll Tests Positive For COVID-19

    Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday. He's experiencing mild symptoms while at home. Carroll will remain at home and is in communication with his coaching staff with the plan to participate in meetings virtually until he returns to the team's facilities at training camp. Carroll is the NFL's oldest head coach at age 70, but he is fully vaccinated and is expected to make a return in five days. It's unclear who will run Seattle's practices in Carroll's absence.

  • Reuben Foster Working Out With Seahawks

    Free-agent linebacker Reuben Foster (knee), who is hoping to kick-start his comeback after recovering from a major knee injury, has a workout scheduled with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, according to a source. Foster hasn't played since 2018, but the former San Francisco 49er and Washington Commander linebacker has had several workouts. The 28-year-old former first-round pick of the Niners in 2017 out of Alabama has only played in two NFL seasons (2017 and 2018) and has racked up 101 tackles (84 solo), 10 tackles for loss and seven QB hits in 16 starts.

  • Jamal Adams Expected To Wear A Cast During Games

    Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams (finger), who broke a finger during a recent practice when it got stuck in a helmet, is expected to be back practicing with a club and a special cast for games, according to sources. If Adams ultimately requires surgery, which is likely, the plan is for him to go under the knife in the offseason. The 26-year-old has had multiple surgeries on the same finger due to dislocations, but it sounds like he won't have to miss any time to begin the 2022 season. How effective he might be as a tackler will be a different story. The three-time Pro Bowler is routinely one of the first defensive backs off the board in IDP drafts because of his ability to rush the passer and stop the run, but fantasy managers may think twice about adding him to their rosters this year.

  • DK Metcalf Healthy After Foot Surgery

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf (foot), who had surgery to remove a screw from his foot in January, said his foot is all good now. Metcalf reported to training camp earlier this week but wasn't practicing with the team due to his contract status, but that should change now that he agreed to a three-year, $72 million extension on Thursday. The 24-year-old battled through his foot injury for most of last season and finished with 75 catches for 967 yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns in 17 games in 2021. He remains one of the best and most physical downfield threats in football, but Seattle's quarterback situation is far less than ideal. Metcalf could still be a good source of touchdowns, but he figures to be an inconsistent WR2 with Russell Wilson now gone.

  • No Timetable For Jamal Adams' Return

    Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams (hand, fingers) missed training camp practice on Thursday to have his surgically repaired hand/fingers checked out, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Something "didn't feel right" on Wednesday and Adams is getting additional opinions. There's no timetable for his return to training camp for now. If Adams requires additional surgery, he'll almost certainly miss the start of the regular season. The 26-year-old is one of the most valuable fantasy defensive backs in IDP leagues, so this is concerning news, to say the least. The three-time Pro Bowler has played in 12 games in each of his first two seasons in Seattle, and he recorded 87 tackles (56 solo), four tackles for loss, two interceptions and five passes defensed in 2021.

  • DK Metcalf Signs Three-Year Extension With Seattle

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf is signing a three-year, $72 million contract extension on Thursday that includes $58.2 million guaranteed, according to a source. The deal also includes a $30 million signing bonus, which is the highest ever for a wide receiver in NFL history. Metcalf will be a free agent again when he's 27 years old. The 24-year-old had offseason foot surgery, but contract issues were the reason he wasn't on the practice field to begin training camp this week. Now that the contract is ironed out, we should see Metcalf practicing with the team. Metcalf is one of the most physically imposing receivers in the game, but his fantasy value has taken a hit in 2022 now that Russell Wilson is no longer in Seattle.

  • Dee Eskridge Still Dealing With Hamstring Injury

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Dee Eskridge (hamstring) took part in the early portion of practice on Wednesday before he was limited. Head coach Pete Carroll said the team didn't want to overwork him as he dealt with hamstring tightness. A second-round pick last year, Eskridge missed some time in the spring with the same hamstring injury. The 25-year-old dealt with injuries in his rookie season as well and finished with a disappointing 10 catches on 20 targets for 64 yards and one touchdown in 10 games (zero starts) in 2021. He should have a bigger role (if healthy) this year, but Seattle's situation at quarterback won't help his cause for a better performance in his sophomore season.

  • K.J. Wright Retires As A Seahawk

    Linebacker K.J. Wright signed a one-day contract on Wednesday with the Seattle Seahawks in order to retire with the organization after spending 10 years with the team from 2011 to 2020. Wright ends his career as one of the all-time greats in Seattle after he won the starting role at middle linebacker in his rookie season. Over his 10 seasons with the Seahawks, Wright piled up 934 tackles, the third-most in team history behind Bobby Wagner and Eugene Robinson, and he was named to the Pro Bowl in 2016. During his 10 seasons with the team, Seattle went to the playoffs eight times, winning four division titles, two NFC championships and one Super Bowl title. Seattle's defense was one of the best in NFL history in 2012-15 with Wright starting at linebacker.

  • Geno Smith Begins Camp With First-Team Offense

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith ran with the first-team offense at training camp practice on Wednesday, with Drew Lock working with the second-team. Lock did get a couple first-team repetitions with the starting offensive line in 11-man offensive drills without a defense present, however. Smith was in the lead in the QB competition after mandatory minicamp last month, so he's picking up where he left off. The 31-year-old has the early edge because of his familiarity with the system, but Lock has the more impressive physical tools. This is a competition that should continue deep into camp and the preseason, with the winner being nothing more than a low-end QB2 option in two-QB leagues.

  • DK Metcalf Not Practicing

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf (foot) is at training camp, but he's not practicing with the team after having offseason foot surgery in March. Metcalf didn't start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, so he could return to practice shortly. There's also the issue of the 24-year-old's contract situation with the 2022 season approaching. Metcalf is one of the best all-around wide receivers in the NFL, but the quarterback situation in Seattle with Geno Smith and Drew Lock is far from ideal now that Russell Wilson is gone. He has scored 29 touchdowns in his three seasons in the NFL and has a 1,000-yard season in 2020. Metcalf will still score his fair share of touchdowns and win jump balls down the field, but his stock is down as a WR2 in 2022.

Mafe was selected with the No. 40 pick following a standout career at Minnesota. […]

  • DK Metcalf Reports To Training Camp

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf has reported to training camp. This is good news, but it's uncertain if Metcalf is actually going to practice with the team. Some players that are seeking new contracts have shown up to camp, but sit out. This allows the player to avoid fines, but still apply pressure to the team The 24-year-old is expected to reach an extension with the organization before the beginning of the season. However, his fantasy value is expected to decrease significantly with Russell Wilson departing this offseason. Now, Drew Lock or Geno Smith will be throwing at Metcalf this season. There's a good chance Metcalf suits up in 2022, but it's hard to imagine him carrying the same value as he did in prior seasons.

  • Kenneth Walker III Signs Rookie Deal

    The Seattle Seahawks signed second-round rookie running back Kenneth Walker III to his four-year rookie deal on Tuesday. Walker was one of the top running backs in college football in 2021 and should play a pretty big role alongside the injury-prone Rashaad Penny in Seattle's backfield this year after Chris Carson (neck) announced his retirement from football. Penny and Walker are in line to serve as the team's primary early down options in the backfield, and given Penny's lengthy injury history, Walker will make for an excellent handcuff. The 21-year-old might also have some standalone value as an RB3/flex in deeper leagues, although Seattle's offense could struggle with Drew Lock and Geno Smith their options at QB.

  • Chris Carson Retires

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (neck) is retiring from football due to a serious neck injury that he suffered last year, according to sources. The Seahawks will officially release him with a failed-physical designation. Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, it allows Carson to receive several million in injury protection benefits. Carson only played in five seasons with Seattle, but he had back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons in 2018 and 2019 and was in the RB1 conversation when healthy. The 27-year-old will finish his career in the NFL with 3,502 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns on 769 carries, while adding 107 receptions for 804 yards and another seven TDs. Rashaad Penny, if healthy, will lead Seattle's backfield in 2022, with rookie Kenneth Walker III serving in a change-of-pace role.
