  • Seahawks Expect RT Abraham Lucas Healthy By Regular Season

    The Seahawks have already seen one member of their 2022 draft class go under the knife this offseason, but another one has had a procedure of his own. Head coach Pete Carroll recently provided an update on the status of right tackle Abraham Lucas, who underwent shoulder surgery. “He's doing great and his strength is almost all the […]

  • Abraham Lucas Limited After Having Shoulder Surgery

    Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that offensive tackle Abraham Lucas (shoulder) had shoulder surgery this offseason, which is why he's been limited at organized team activities. However, Carroll said Lucas should be ready for the start of the regular season. Lucas was the 72nd overall pick in last year's draft and managed to start 16 games for Seattle in 2022 as their right tackle. As long as the 24-year-old offensive tackle is able to take part in training camp, he should be ready for Week 1 as the team's starting right tackle for his sophomore season in the NFL.

  • No Timetables For Jamal Adams, Jordyn Brooks

    Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said again on Thursday that there remains no firm timetable on the returns of safety Jamal Adams (quadriceps) and linebacker Jordyn Brooks (knee), and that they won't have a timetable for six to eight weeks or so. Still, both players are doing well in their rehab and have their sights set on being ready for the regular season. Adams set an NFL record for defensive backs with 9.5 sacks in 2020, but he's played in just 25 games combined in the last three seasons due to injury. But if he's healthy in 2023, he'll be a force in IDP fantasy leagues. Brooks, the former 27th overall pick in 2020, has totaled 345 tackles in 33 games in his first two NFL seasons, but he tore his ACL in Week 17 of 2022. His fantasy value will depend on whether he has a realistic chance to be ready for Week 1.

  • Tariq Woolen Has Knee Surgery, Out Until Training Camp

    Seattle Seahawks Pro Bowl cornerback Tariq Woolen (knee), a 2022 fifth-round pick who tied for the league lead in interceptions in his rookie year, had arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday that is expected to keep him out until training camp, according to league sources. The 24-year-old finished his first year in the NFL with 63 tackles (46 solo), 16 passes defensed and six interceptions for the Seahawks, but he might not be ready for Week 1 now. Woolen proved to be an elite NFL cornerback in his first year and even put himself in the Defensive Rookie of the Year conversation, so any time missed in 2023 would be a big blow to Seattle's secondary.

  • Seahawks Sign Mario Edwards Jr., Forrest Merrill

    The Seattle Seahawks signed free-agent defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr. and Forrest Merrill to undisclosed deals on Monday. Linebacker Michael Ayers and defensive end Jacob Sykes were waived to make room on the roster. A former second-round pick in 2015 by the Las Vegas Raiders, Edwards will join his sixth NFL team after recording 17 tackles (11 solo), three sacks, four tackles for loss and 11 QB hits in 13 games (seven starts) for the Tennessee Titans in 2022. The 29-year-old has 19.5 career sacks in 99 games played (32 starts) over eight seasons. Merrill, 26, was signed by the Los Angeles Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2021, and he's played in just one NFL season (four games).

  • Jamal Adams Remains Without A Return Date

    According to Seahawks general manager John Schneider, safety Jamal Adams (quadriceps) remains without a return date. "He's doing well," said Schneider during an appearance on the Rich Eisen Show. "We want to be really careful with his progression, so training camp, I'm just not sure. We'll see where he is when he comes in for the OTAs." The veteran tore his quad tendon during the season-opener against the Denver Broncos and has been on the shelf ever since. That said, Adams has plenty of talent. However, he's had issues staying on the field over the years. Without question, his absence wasn't ideal for a Seahawks defense that struggled at times during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Seahawks Sign Jaxon Smith-Njigba To Rookie Deal

    The Seattle Seahawks signed first-round wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba to his four-year rookie deal on Thursday. The contract includes a standard fifth-year option. Smith-Njigba was the 20th overall selection in this year's NFL draft, and he started a little receiver run late in the first round. He'll be third on the pass-catching totem pole behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett in Seattle, but his presence gives rising quarterback Geno Smith yet another weapon through the air. The 21-year-old pass-catcher should make an immediate impact in his rookie year and has been the most popular rookie receiver so far in fantasy drafts, but managers also will need to temper their expectations in Year 1 as long as both Metcalf and Lockett remain healthy.

  • Mario Edwards Joins Seahawks

    The Seattle Seahawks have signed defensive end Mario Edwards to a one-year deal. The 29-year-old visited with the Seahawks in March, but didn't decide to sign until now. He has bounced around the league quite a bit since being drafted in the second round by the Raiders in 2015. Last season, Edwards recorded three sacks and a career-high 11 quarterback hits in 13 games (seven starts) with the Tennessee Titans. The expectation is that Edwards is going to be a rotational piece on the Seahawks d-line.

  • Seahawks Think Kenny McIntosh Is Special

    The Seattle Seahawks took rookie running back Kenny McIntosh in the seventh round of this year's NFL draft, but head coach Pete Carroll thinks McIntosh "easily" could have been taken in the third round. Carroll called the running back room "really together" and also said that Kenneth Walker III has had a "fantastic" offseason and is ready to be more versatile in 2023. Walker is expected to lead Seattle's backfield this year, but McIntosh and fellow rookie Zach Charbonnet are worth watching in what could become a frustrating timeshare that also involved DeeJay Dallas. The 23-year-old McIntosh led Georgia in rushing yards (829) and receptions (43) in 2022. He could carve out a role on third downs, but he'll mostly be a flier in dynasty/keeper leagues in his rookie season.

  • Seahawks Restructure Tyler Lockett's Contract

    The Seattle Seahawks restructured the contract of wide receiver Tyler Lockett on Thursday, converting $8.535 million of his base salary into a signing bonus to create $5.69 million in salary cap space this year, according to a source. Lockett is 30 years old and still has three years left on his current deal, although the Seahawks could get out of the contract after this year. Both Lockett and DK Metcalf have been one of the better receiver duos in the NFL, but now Seattle has added a first-rounder in Jaxon Smith-Njigba, which clouds Lockett's long-term future with the organization. It could also lower his fantasy ceiling somewhat for the coming season, but Lockett still figures to be a top aerial target for quarterback Geno Smith.

  • Seahawks Add Bryant Koback

    Free-agent running back Bryant Koback signed with the Seahawks, the team announced on Wednesday. The 25-year-old had a stellar collegiate career, rushing for 4,026 yards and totaling 52 touchdowns. However, he wasn't selected in the 2022 NFL Draft but was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Vikings last offseason, where he spent the year on the practice squad. That said, Koback will face plenty of competition in Seattle, so his fantasy outlook isn't bright heading into the 2023-24 campaign, even if he's in the lineup come Week 1.
