    Depth Chart, Roster Moves, Cap Position

    The team usually makes close to 300 roster moves/season (this last year only 246 largely due to cap limitations); and the depth chart changes as injuries happen and/or players are added or subtracted as needed. I believe having a depth chart 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. The season is now over and the FAs will be broken out from the roster and identified as Seahawks FAs.

    Here is a current depth chart. All the FA players, ERFA, RFA, & UFA have been taken out of the roster, and each of the IR players added back to the team. I will record each further transaction in and out as they happen. This depth chart is just my opinion feel free to comment or suggest changes. The plan is to record all forthcoming roster moves and to adjust the DC as the roster changes are made. This gives a more accurate representation of the present depth on the roster going into the offseason.

    Please, as ever, advise here of any changes as they happen. 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 also 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 from https://overthecap.com/salary-cap/seattle-seahawks/. Their number can be seen at the bottom of the page.

    PLEASE NOTE: Original Poster has started a cap thread here where you can attempt to have cap questions answered, he along with several others here have a depth of knowledge on the subject. His/their numbers may be more up to date than OTC which does an excellent job but with 32 teams is a bit slower in updating. Here is his website, and also his thread here. https://www.hawk-talk.com/cap-position,

    Here is the 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.

    DLIne depth

  • Thanks OP, was basing the picks from www.GBN.com who is usually accurate, but will list it. JS was busy last season trying to fix Cable’s mess, and a lot of picks were shopped around to find potential warm bodies.

  • This cap hole seems to be getting deeper and deeper.

    What amount is presently factored into his deal? If it is a bonus could it not be prorated?

    I'm struggling to see why it can't be prorated however given ESPN are actually clarifying an earlier error, I very much doubt it's wrong.

    I haven't really been able to get my head around the Britt contract from the start, it's a real odd one.

    My understanding is that option and signing bonuses are prorated. An option bonus is prorated over the remaining life of the contract up to a max of 5 years.

  • That was my understanding, but that doesn’t explain why the $5M bonus is being fully absorbed in 2018 (should the team choose the option) and not split over 18, 19 and 20.

  • I am fairly certain that Britt's cap figure on overthecap already includes the option bonus. One quarter of the 5 mil signing bonus + one third of the 5 mil option bonus (1.25 + 1.67 = 2.92).

  • ^That's spot on.

    It's the 'completely clean' in 2019 that is enticing to the team, not the low cap savings in 2018.

  • So the real questions the FO is asking are:

    - are the cap savings of $2.175 million this year worth the opportunity cost of not having Bennett's contribution to the pass rush? He is still signed for 3 seasons and the cap savings next year (2019) is $5.262 million.

    - has his play tailed off making him overpriced?

    - is it a sensible move/necessary move to cut or trade Bennett when it seems clear Avril is done?

    -won't eliminating Bennett create a clear draft need which may not be able to be filled?

    - what might Bennett return if he was traded?
    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.

  • Britt got all of his $7.75 million salary for this year guaranteed Friday, from the extension he signed last summer. The Seahawks have an option to pay Britt another $5 million for 2020. If they decide to exercise that the team must make their center that payment between the start of the league year March 14 and March 18, his guarantee for this year reduces to $2.75 million.

    The Seahawks are believed to have about $8.2 million in salary cap space for 2018 currently, a month before free agency begins. That’s after taking out approximately $6 million the team would need to sign the eight draft choices they are scheduled to select in April.

  • In terms of stark reality that $8.2 million in available cap is truly not very much considering the number of positions to fill and the number of FA players the team has this year.

    If we additionally look at the roster and players under contract it can’t fail to noticed that there quite a few players who might not be around or even survive cuts. This combined with no 2nd day picks this draft certainly paints a bleak picture that speaks of the need for some deep changes to the roster.

    Cap cuts will soon be upon us and some fan favourites are potentially liable to be moved out. These players all have relative value and I imagine Trader John is busy chatting up other teams in term of potential transactions.
    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.

  • As this is a roster thread and there is lots of time until things start to happen it seems appropriate to offer some opinion on keeping or letting them go to FA each of the 37 FAs.

    As well there are a few plyers on the roster that I'd consider trading if the price was right or even releasing when appropriate.

    Exclusive Rights Free Agents (12)
    OLB- 59- Josh Forrest (IR), - don't think he stays
    OC- 53- Joey Hunt, - he's kept

    OLB- 47- P.J. Dawson, - don't think he stays
    DE- 99- Quinton Jefferson, - he's kept
    DT- 98- Garrison Smith, - he's kept
    LS- 69- Tyler Ott, - he's kept
    RB- 21- J.D. McKissic, - he's kept
    OT- 67- Tyrus Thompson (WI)> (IR), - don't think he stays
    OLB- 48- Christian French (WI) > (IR), - he's kept, but fails to make the team
    SS- 37- Jordan Simone (WI)> (IR), - don't think he stays
    CB- 36- Akeem King (IR/PS), - don't think he stays

    RB- 27- Eddie Lacy, - will not be re-signed
    DT- 91- Sheldon Richardson, will not be able to be kept w/o a franchise tag, probably not kept

    OLB- 48- Jason Thompson, - will not be re-signed

    I see the team keeping 16 ERFA, RFA, and UFA players but they will need to make some cap trades/or cap cuts to accomplish this as they only have $8.2 million of available cap after accounting for draft picks, PS $, injury money. Those players on the roster bubble/ trade bubble capwise are the usual suspects:

    - Lane - cap savings pre-June 1 = $4.75 million. I suspect the team has shopped him and is still shopping him.
    - Avril - cap savings pre-June 1 = $7.125 million less injury settlement if cut, this is sad b/c it was fluke injury.
    - Bennett - cap savings pre-June 1 = $2.175 million, I remain doubtful he will be released or traded as his production was still solid despite injury.
    - Ryan - cap savings pre-June 1 = $2.0 million
    - Sherman - cap savings pre-June 1 = $11 million, but would only be traded, doubtful this would happen b/c of his injury.
    - Thomas - cap savings pre-June 1 = $8.5 million, but would only be traded.

    Pn'J are going to need to make some difficult decisions to keep the core of the team together and to refresh to 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.

    That's hard to say, Cable was an Assistant Head Coach, they may value him and know others in the league do as well and make the title harder to poach him and give him a bit of a salary bump.

    Taking Cable as an example, was hired right away once let go by the Raiders, Bevell still unemployed no Assistant HC Title...........

  • This must be the longest time in the PCJS era that a roster move hasn’t taken place. Over 7 weeks I believe.

    I think it means one of two things, they don't want to over play and over pay and are waiting for the Market to be set.

    They are waiting to cherry pick and see where trades and deals can be made to increase draft capital.

  • It is also a function of the team’s weak cap situation. Both of you are very right though, it has been a very long time since the last transaction, and they are waiting and watching for the market to be set both in terms of money and available talent. I’m sure as well there are many conversations going on where those conversations are allowed.

    This situation will surely test JS’ patience as historically he prefers to continue to massage the roster by adding ncrememtally to try to improve the quality of the depth on the roster.

  • Yep, it’s certainly odd.

    There must be somethings brewing for things to be this quiet.

    This time of year is certainly frustrating for those watching who try to sus out patterns or relevant roster info.

    This will be an extremely critical offseason for JS to keep a highly competitive group together.

  • This is the longest period in the tenure of the team’s leadership by Pn’J that there hasn’t been a transaction.

  • At this stage, you have to wonder is it b/c of the cap restriction or is there something significant in the works. For me I think the cap is what is holding the team back. This situation must genuinely upset JS as this is his time of the year to do his thing and his hands are tied behind his back. Last year’s moves are biting him on the rear and their ‘all in bet’ failed. There clearly was a lesson in that for him.

    I disagree in honesty. I know we don't exactly have much cap at present but you can all but guarantee Jeremy Lane and Cliff Avril won't be on the roster very shortly. They can be in any deal they like in reality.

    Plus, if they 'really, really' wanted a player they could just reduce the cap price in 2018 and take the hit in 2019/2020 when the cap is very healthy. It's not unusual to either front or back load a contract at all depending on cap situations year to year.

  • I suspect there is going to be more than one surprising roster move as the cap situation gets straightened out.

    If so, JS and PC have elected to blow it up this year and the team will be re-tooling with no second day picks, unless some key pieces are traded away.

  • Bennett is gone, Sherman is following, Jimmy may be next. Let's assume without Bennett, Sherman, Jimmy, what will our cap be? How much do we have to sign our next corp of players?

    Will hold off on the Sheman report until more is known.

    @AdamSchefter
    Here it goes: Seahawks are trading DE Michael Bennett and a seventh-round pick to Eagles for a fifth-round pick and WR Marcus Johnson, sources tell ESPN.

    The team will get about $2.2 mill back for Bennett, $11 mil for Sherman and zip for Graham who is a FA.

    This.

    Add in Lane and Avril and I make the cap to sit at $38,172,600.

    $38mil, and still lacking in draft picks. Feeling like there will be more trades, to free up more or get more picks. Pete's rebuilding for sure.
