2016 Present Depth Chart, Roster Moves, Current Cap Position

    Depth Chart, Roster Moves, Cap Position


    As usual the team makes close to 225-250 roster moves/season (occasionally more) and the depth chart changes as injuries happen and/or players are added or subtracted as needed. For us here I believe it’s a good addition to the main board page as often the team changes players, thus their player numbers, their names, etc. are a good thing to be able to quickly refer to. JS likes to churn the roster a bit to help the competitive situation at various positions. There will be lots of changes throughout the season.

    I’ve waited until after free agency, the draft, and the initial post-draft UDFA crush to prepare an initial preliminary current depth chart. I will not count those players already moved in or out but will record each further transaction in and out from now on. Of course, this depth chart is just my opinion and we will all know more after TC. I welcome any comments on the depth chart and the positional designations therein. If there is a consensus about a player being wrongly located on the DC I’ll change this DC. The plan is to record all forthcoming roster moves and to adjust the DC as the roster changes are made.

    Please advise here of any changes as they happen. Regardless, I will attempt to keep this depth chart current quickly after all changes, PS designations, waivers, cuts, additions, players claimed, PUP or injury designations, etc.. I will attempt to keep it current throughout the season by indicating what the roster moves were, after they happen. This sometimes involves a delay, sometimes life intervenes, and the delay may result in the update being slower to happen. However, I will make every effort to keep this page current. The changes are frequently in, out, and back in, with the PS churning enough to have an effective player number of greater than 10 players for each week just by the number of weekly transactions. JS seemingly keeps a ghost roster besides the regular PS. This hopefully will be a complete record.

    As well I will update the presently available cap number on a weekly basis, or as quickly as information can be obtained. The number can be seen at the bottom of the page.

    Here is the present roster from Seahawks.com: http://www.seahawks.com/team/roster

    As well now here is the DC from the team: http://www.seahawks.com/team/depth-chart


    Color Codes

    Player already on team from last season, or added with futures deal (F) before FA or the draft

    Players who are UFAs (U), RFAs (R), or ERFAs (E) in 2017
    Note: included are added FAs on 1 yr. deals (as italicized where player is from the outside the player may have an appropriately colored designation).

    Player added in FA or claimed as a FA or as a veteran waived player

    Player added in Draft

    UDFA added after the draft

    Player renewed before contract expired

    Player acquired by trade

    As the season is now over as far as any games are concerned I have broken these players noted below out from the roster as they at present will not be under contract to the Seahawks when the season officially ends.

    Transaction number (after completion of signings following rookie mini camp, and all roster moves),

    = 219 since this thread started, but actually so far since the beginning of free agency 315 which is about normal.

    Present Available Cap Number as per OTC.com = $27,701,374
    Note: this number should be viewed with suspicion as OTC.com has not got the full complement of players signed by the team listed in their calculations.

    As well here is a pretty nifty CAP calculator for NFL teams with the added bonus of creating 'what if' scenarios, also from OTC.com.

    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

  • Saved in case there is a size limit for each post

    Here are all the 96 prior transactions made by the Seahawks since the official end of the 2015 season prior to the French and Fortt transactions.

  • That was a lot of work, so won't make many comments. Especially since it is so early and everyone has there own opinions on these type of rankings.

    But just a few comments.

    Why do you have Britt as the #1 center when he has "never" played the position. PC said they were going to "try" him out at that position, not give him the starting job.

    Why do you have Clark at SLB, when PC clearly stated that he was a DE, not a LB? He should be backing either of our starting DE's.

    Just my opinion.

  • By present cap number, I believe you mean present cap space available.

    And you may want to add an asterisk that Marshawn's retirement is not reflected in that number.

  • Yes, cap space is present available cap space and I'm using the numbers provided by OTC.com. Isn't Marshawn's cap implication already factored with the filing of the retirement papers by the team?

  • I have Britt listed as a C b/c he is the most experienced OLineman the team has indicated will compete for the position. This of course may change if the team doesn't see Britt as a C. I can understand your concern there as Britt hasn't looked that good as either a T or G.

    I have Clark provisionally at SOLB as someone will need to take Irvin's spot and Clemons appears to be the initial leader as the backup @RDE. Time will tell on this, but there is reason why Clark has slimmed down to 250 or thereabouts.

    If I get another poster indicating both players should be moved to OG or Leo respectively I'll move them. As indicated the initial post is just my view.


    Note: I have now replaced Clark at DE as it appears from his latest comments he will not be playing SOLB this coming season

  • OLB- Khairi Fort added. I've given him French's number 49 for now. Will change if there is a change.

    Fortt's number is now 59.

  • Thanks, it'll work well if all of us can like Jville put the info here to be added to the DC post.

    It's nice for us to be able to not leave the .Net site if we have a name or number question, and to be able to find a comparatively accurate DC too.

    Yes, that is the cap space available AFTER factoring in Marshawn's retirement.

  • I suspect we shall see a roster move or two next week with the first full team OTA activity. Phase 3 of the preseason workout starts monday.

  • Thanks for the kind words. I enjoy doing this. It's a way of knowing each player on the team and their details. It can be frustrating when JS starts churning as needed for the team as players can be waived one day and added back the next. As stated in the OP the effective number of players on the PS is often greater than 10 if the numbers are added up for the week.

    It works best when everyone on the board adds to the thread, with reported or tweeted roster moves. It's nice to have a thread where the roster can be quickly looked at, while a debate can commence on the DC once we know who the keepers are likely to be from the 90. However, it's a tad early for that part yet however once camp starts the discussion can get interesting.

    I will keep this current and have done it before for a few seasons at the the old KFFL.com site (now defunct) as part of mock drafting where the DC was relevant. If it is interesting enough perhaps it may be seen relevant enough to be stickied so the DC and players names numbers,etc., are easier to find quickly. time will tell.

    Please left me know if I've got a player wrongly positioned or numbered I will correct quickly.

    Madden was signed shortly after the draft. No word yet on him having been waived. I think he was mentioned as a possible option to compete at fullback. His good pass blocking, decent hands, and physical running might also make him a promising 3rd down back, in the mold of Fred Jackson. Injuries are the biggest concerns for him. But he's listed on the roster for now:

  • McEvoy was being used at safety during the mini camp which is good because I don't think he would make it in the team as a WR.

    My thinking is there is need for a page on this site that deals with all the transactions and the DC and roster.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Although McEvoy was used during the rookie mini camp as a DB the team still lists him on their site as a WR.

    I suspect his position may officially change after these OTA's are done if he stays a DB.


    Note:

    Now moved to FS for now.

    Note:

    Now moved back to WR.

    Yes, not questioning that, sorry. I just wanted to share where I find the most current information on this. Even Ourlads isn't what it once was.

  • Was thinking exactly on your thought line and appreciated your well intended assistance. This stuff isn't rocket science but it can often be difficult to find accurate sources as the team is sometimes very slow in reporting their moves, so any site that helps is appreciated.

  • How many other teams have a non-specialist LS? Not sure i'm convinced that a backup lineman in Sowell is going to do double duty.

  • If all things are equal won't that decision be based upon who is the better long snapper and who wins the competition for the job?

    To me it'd be sweet if that reality (Sowell as OT and LS) were true as the team would save a roster spot and would be able to keep an extra OLB, DLineman, WR, DB, or other.

  • Thanks Jville updating soon.

    This player Coleman was apparently here during rookie mini camp and was tried out on both sides of the ball according to a SeattleTimes article on his signing. He played LB in college but NFL Draft Scout lists him as a FB. I'll list him as whatever the team lists him as for now, OLB.

  • Updated

    The team's cap position will not change with the deletion or addition of these two UDFA players as they would not be calculated b/c their salary doesn't get into the top 51 for the team.

  • Thanks. I'm happy you find it useful.

    After the cuts to 53 I will also identify those players who are FAs, RFAs or ERFAs by some method that makes them readily identifiable as it helps to know who's who as the season progresses.

    As said before it really helps if we all can post the roster moves here to make the updating quicker.

  • I've now identified all the players who will be either a UFA, a RFA, or an ERFA in 2017. Clearly this may change over the course of the preseason or the season. I decided it was worth doing now, and was easier than I first thought.

  • It has has been recently reported i believe by the TImes that DT- Brandon Bryant is no longer practicing as a FB & that DT- Taniela Tupou is practicing exclusively as a FB, that Tanner McEvoy is, as been observed earlier here, practicing as a DB and not as a WR even though he's listed on the team roster as a WR. Further, that during these OTAs Kevin Pierre-Louis is practicing with the 1's as a SOLB rather than as a WOLB and that Kristjan Sokoli is practicing a G rather than as a C for now which is interesting but may reflect he is not a natural as a C. Coach Cable did however say in an earlier interview that he'd see once the pads went on in TC how Sokoli's development is turning out.

    I've now made those changes to the DC above based upon that information.

    I doubt much turns on any of it but it does indicate the team is checking out Pierre-Louis to see if he has any positional versatility. I think he could be on the bubble this season as he has had trouble staying healthy.

  • In terms of the defensive backs in the above version of the DC, at times the designation CB or S is very fungible and at present some players are listed as CBs who may be safeties and vica versa.

    McEvoy is listed as a FS b/c he has WR speed, Browner is shown as a CB but may now be more regularly a S, and Shead is shown as a S but may actually now be playing as a CB, etc.,etc.

  • Agreed. Those positions seem to be in a rotation finding what best fits our scheme and possibly some new looks that can exploit the offensive side of the opposing team. You may see a lot of sliding players in those 3-4 positions. Also something to look for is the backup positions as we do rotate people in a lot.

  • For sure.

    It will be very interesting to see which DB players are kept around on the team and the PS. Pn'J are doing a very good job making the pile deeper and deeper. This will naturally engender some predation from the cuts or the PS and the team may wind up losing some talented players but they will ones who didn't win out in the camp competition or still had developmental growth needed to make the team or PS.

    Other areas of significant interest are those which are obvious the RBs, the OLine and the SOLB keepers and the 5th and 6th WRs.

    One thing that is obvious is this FO has built a considerable amount of highly competitive depth on the roster.

    Another thing that usually always happens as well is there will be some roster surprises that happen with the cuts.

  • Quite interesting that the team seems more settled in terms of tryout type backup players this year.

    Normally the team moves guys in and out frequently at this time of the year as they kick tires on various players in their 'interested in pipeline'. There has been less churning to now than has occured in prior years.

    There are certainly going to be some interesting roster battles on the interior OLine, DLine, RB, WR, DB, CB, SOLB for a few once camp opens. Too bad that the team may lose some exceptional athletes to the roster limits, but the team will be stronger for the competition that preceeded the cuts. Versatility, ST ability, athleticism, ability to clear waivers, cost, injuries, and just plain developmental potential will be factors the team will consider as difference malking distinctions.

    It's truly notable how much this FO has improved the depth, size, toughness, speed and raw physicality of the team since 2010. They are doing it better than it has ever been done here before.

  • Doug Baldwin renewed for 4yrs/$46 mill = about $11mil /yr per rotoworld.com

    http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/6825/doug-baldwin

    updated: removed 2017 pending UFA status

    The available cap number will be revised once OTC crunches the contract terms and we know his contract status for 2016.

    It is apparent to me that the backfill of personnel is more depth for competition this year by filling in more of the necessities than rotational personnel. Part of that was the roster tryouts that you speak of. They have stopped with the special educational projects as in changing defensive players to offensive mistakes as they have done in the past. I think we shall probably see more of this style of management of our roster of offensive players staying on offense and being coached up to the standard that our staff can nudge them to be better. Sometimes starting raw is a great thing, but for the past few years we have ended up with raw meat on the plate when all is said and done.

  • Interesting post, perhaps so. This could have been driven by need and merely represents a FO shift of direction as necessary or even as maturing response to the maturing team roster. Although need looks certainly to be a rational rationale

    Somehow though I suspect the almost compulsive obsession over high SPARQ athletic candidates will continue and the team will be always looking for replacement players who are bigger, faster, stronger, smarter replacements as each positional group gets worked over and incrementally improved. I genuinely doubt they won't still keep a couple of high potential low cost 'projects' as those players have in the past paid such high dividends. This FO is hard to line up in terms of truly understanding their direction, and just when you thi nk you might be getting there, they surprise, so you could be right on.

    Assessing their roster moves is an interesting and oft changing exercise.
