    Depth Chart, Roster Moves, Cap Position


    The team usually makes close to 300 roster moves/season (occasionally more); and the depth chart changes as injuries happen and/or players are added or subtracted as needed. I believe having the DC here is a good addition to the main board page so when the team changes players, knowing their player numbers, their names, and positional information is a good thing to be able to quickly refer to here without leaving the site. JS likes to churn the roster a bit to help the competitive situations at various positions. There will be lots of changes throughout the season.

    Here is a preliminary current depth chart. Effective the free agency opening date of March 9, 2017. I will record each further transaction in and out from then on. Of course, this depth chart is just my opinion and we will all know more after TC, and from the team, thereafter changes will be made if needed. 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. 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

    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.

  • Well, this list makes it easy to see what we need to draft.

    DB is dreadful, especially if you figure in that Lane was craptastic last year and Shead, torn up knee. We saw what happened when Kam and Earl were out. We need DB in the worst way.

    Our RB stable also needs replenishing even though it has been addressed. The injuries there cannot be ignored.

    FORTUNATELY This draft is DEEEEEEEEP in DB and RB. We are armed with 3 3rd round picks as well.

    All is not lost.

  • Thanks man. I almost had a question...but U/K is unknown status until after the draft when they start looking at things all over their board. Thanks.

  • Neither the team site nor other sites seem to have numbers for the specific player listed with a u/k notation by their number, so they remain u/k until their number is known.

    As indicated as far as position location or status as far as depth on the DC more will be known as info becomes available.

    This thread works well when members here add the info as it becomes known. Thanks especially to Jville who is a machine at times and almost always first with the scoop.

  • Seahawks to tender OT -Gary Gilliam with original round tender @$1.797 mil. This translates to a RFR tender as Gillam was an undrafted player.

  • I hate that we lost that 5th rounder in a deep draft. It squanders a depth addition.

    It's time for the staff to knock off the shenanigans that are costing us valuable practices and draft picks.

  • It seems as if the enthusiasm of the coaching staff needs to be tempered a bit b/c this is the second penalty for overly enthusiastic OTA physicality.

    Last year wasn't the team fined and they lost practices b/c of the over physicality of the OTA practices the year prior?

    Pete needs a reminder from John that 5th Rd. draft picks can provide valuable depth that otherwise costs the team big cap money. Oh, and to zip it about injuries.

    Didnt Sowell come out and say it's utter bollocks though? Said he'd worked much harder elsewhere and can't believe we are being punished.

  • Yeah I have read what Sowell said. The league seemed to get revved up about it after there were published reports of a fight during one OTA practice.

  • Thanks Jammer for doing this.

    Do you think JS will do some wheeling and dealing to get some picks in the 4th or 5th rounds, or will he stay put?

    I think that maybe it depends on if they sign Lang. If they do, they may trade out of the first and get ?

  • No problem..

    JS usually likes to have as many picks as he can get. I think he has always had 8 or more. I can easily imagine him trading any of the early picks to reposition and to add more picks. He rarely trades up though, but did last year.

    If the team can add Lang ( I remain doubtful), anything can happen, and moving up or down to get specific players is also possible.

  • Everything should be updated to note the players ERFA tendered are now added back to the roster. When news of Gilliam signing his RFA tender happens I will add him to the roster.

  • It is being reported that the Hawks have signed RB-Eddie Lacy for a 1 year deal of $5.55 mil w. $3.0 mil guaranteed.

    Pete appeared happy with this signing.

  • I am less than overwhelmed or even impressed by the two 1 year deals that we signed. One was a bit of bust, is he really an upgrade to our existing OL??? The over couldn't keep his job against Micheal, yes, our Micheal. Really?

    Not sure how these two will fit in but their respective track record is encouraging.

  • The thing is both of us don't really have the clear picture yet of what Pete and John want to create on O this season.

    You can hate both signings but both are here on approval at relatively inexpensive, considering the market conditions for Joeckl, deals. When Lacy is in shape and motivated he's a load to bring down and he's not playing for GB this upcoming season. You can be sure he knows he's playing for a big deal this season so for both him and Joeckl both are in a "conract year" position and will need to impress to improve their market value going forward.

    I like Lacy (in shape) bettter than Petersen, Charles, and Murray, besides he's the youngest RB of the FA group and a player w/o the injury history of the others. he does need to watch his weight though and reportedly weighed 267 lbs when visiting a team. Pete wants to see him playing at 240.

    Just an observation but with the addition of Lacy the team has now got 9 guys at RB under contract. Clearly there will be cuts made at that position.

  • Beat me again, thanks Jville, keep up your excellent work.

    updated.
    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.

    You can hate both signings but both are here on approval at relatively inexpensive, considering the market conditions for Joeckl, deals. When Lacy is in shape and motivated he's a load to bring down and he's not playing for GB this upcoming season. You can be sure he knows he's playing for a big deal this season so for both him and Joeckl both are in a "conract year" position and will need to impress to improve their market value going forward.

    I like Lacy (in shape) bettter than Petersen, Charles, and Murray, besides he's the youngest RB of the FA group and a player w/o the injury history of the others. he does need to watch his weight though and reportedly weighed 267 lbs when visiting a team. Pete wants to see him playing at 240.

    Just an observation but with the addition of Lacy the team has now got 9 guys at RB under contract. Clearly there will be cuts made at that position.


    You can never have enough for these.

    Yep, but one of our bubbles is a lot bigger than the others, likely they will only keep 3 or 4. That means 5 don't make the cut.

  • DT John Jenkins has signed with the Bears. No loss, not someone the Hawks wanted back, and doesn't count toward the comp pick formula, but worth sharing nonetheless.

  • The team has signed OLB- Arthur Brown to a 1 year deal. Until I know more about him I've shoved him on the roster as a SOLB.

    EDIT: He's now listed as a backup WOLB

  • Thanks ivotuk.

    Free Safety BradleyMc Dougald is signed to a one year deal as reported in another thread here. I suspect he's a hedge for ET, just in case he's slow to recuperate. I f feel however he may be simply a depth signing at either S position. His speed would seem to limit his positional versatility to being more of a SS type. I won't question this signing as PC knows the DBs he thinks fits our scheme better than anyone.

    Here's a draft profile;

    Interesting addition.

    Strong legged P/K. He's competition for Walsh.

    Seahawks agreed to terms with LB Terence Garvin, source says. Tough kind of player they like.

  • B/C this player was an ERFA, after he was tendered I listed him on the roster b/c he could not sign elsewhere.

  • Lynch Stuff

    I now believe this is on, and a trade of his rights will happen.

    The contract stuff is somewhat meaningless unless he creates a cap hit for the Hawks.

  • Thanks Jville!

    Although this player is a college FA and a player likely to be a UDFA he's technically a FA so his colour code above is appropriate yet could easily be the bright green colour even though he's added before the draft.

    Interesting addition, fast, he must have good hands and is likely a return specialist. Tough position group to break into here.

  • DE/OLB- and former #3 OA pick Dion Jordan is signed.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... on-jordan/

    The deal appears to be another 1 year deal.

    He has a hole in his game, routes, hands. something or he would not be a UDFA, Nehemiah had lousy hands but made occasional catches, Ginn has speed but is just recently last couple years being recognized as a decent receiver, lousy route runner and suspect hands initially and was a return guy mostly. Had to really work on his game over the years.

    Until we see him in action we won't know what he doesn't bring to the table.

  • He was @ LSU on a track scholarship and they didn't want him playing football there, so he never played football in college. That was the reason he was a UDFA.

    He's a long shot to earn a roster spot no matter what at any rate, the roster has a lot of depth at WR, and he may only be a returner. That said as you rightly observe we don't know what if anything he can do except run really fast. He may indeed have a giant learning curve to climb to learn to play WR or even as a KR as a pro or major holes in his game. You can't teach world class speed however.

    He's still an interesting addition, the FO is still rolling over the rocks to find the diamonds in the rough. Throw him into the competition and let's see how he does. Given the need to protect Lockett as he recovers from his broken leg this addition makes some sense.

    That's not it at all. They didn't not want him to play at LSU. It was due to NCAA rules. When a player takes a scholarship for a minor sport, they have to give up their scholarship and sit for two years. They do this so a team can't give a kid a minor scholarship and stash him for a while. It's all detailed in the article below.

  • Thanks for that JJ0384.

    I knew he was track scholarship candidate who wanted to play football but the details of why not appeared to be that LSU didn't want him to be on the football squad. they apparently did but at the cost to Grayson of having to give up his track scholarship for 2 years.

    He's a nice add however, time will tell if he can make the roster.
