  • The draft comes along a week later.
    Seems to me what happens during the FA period will go far to determine our fate next season.
    What progress will we have made during the designated FA signing period?
    Schneider and Carroll make a game out of doing the unexpected. I'm guessing FA market is where we attempt to address our defensive deficiencies and go for offense in the draft. But, they've fooled me before... :roll:

  • I pinned this to the top. Thought it might be a good place for all news, rumors, etc. on free agent visits and ultimately, signings for the Seahawks.

  • Well, we hear TE Olsen is going to visit, so that's the start. I think he has already visited two other teams, maybe three. I don't think he warrants a bidding war. We have plenty of other spots we need to spend money on.

  • I hope A.J. Green could be had on a reasonable 2- or 3-year deal, and I think that it could pay massive dividends. He's one of the best I've ever seen. Legitimately. At everything. Injury risk, for sure. But that's why it could be reasonable.

  • Today, Kenneth Arthur reported that Fowler really wants to go to the Falcons: https://www.turfshowtimes.com/2020/2/5/ ... nsive-ends

    Arthur is a SB Nation employee that until the first of the year ran FieldGulls. I doubt he's close enough to any player or even their circles to ascertain whether this is true.

  • I don't know how much coaching changes effect what happens in the FA market, but SF lost two members of their defensive staff since the SB. One was their secondary coach, who will be the DC for Browns. Could that have an affect on the availability of a few players from both those teams?

  • This offseason will make huge difference in how competitive the Hawks will be for the next few seasons. Re-signing Clowney and fixing both Lines is key.

    The dominos will start to fall into place during this critical period for the team keeping our own.

  • No doubt, with the huge chunk of $ they have available (finally) Clowney and another D Lineman need to be taken care of sooner than later.

  • I agree Soulfish. Re Clowney sooner is paramount. I see that particular deal as the fulcrum point that will determine the order of priority for everything else we do this offseason. I see Clowney as a cornerstone of our defensive front, just as Brown and Britt have been for the O Line.
    We need to get the Clowney thing decided ASAP.

  • When you have a guy that draws so much attention like that and is so disruptive, you just can't let him go. He frees up plays for other guys. Now if we can get a speed rusher on the other side to go along with Clowney? Yes please.

    This has been my point when I am literally arguing with people about. I do know Clowney wanted to to go into free agency just to see who bites. I dont care what people tell me that is bad. If Clowney wanted to be here he would have already signed. I honestly think Clowney is eyeing another team in hopes of signing him. Maybe Clowney was offered something already and he's keeping notes I dont know. Actually nobody knows. If we don't re-sign Clowney and we sign a washed up Greg Olsen I am going to be pissed very pissed. All the Seahawks focus should be on re-signing Clowney. At this point nothing else matters. They paid Wilson, Wagner now its Clowney"s turn. He's gonna get paid regardless. If we don't pay him someone else will.

    This and other posters on this thread saying basically the same thing is very true. I will even go so far as saying that if JS and PC screw this up we will not sniff another Super Bowl in the PC era. The fact is they have thrown away several drafts and trade/FA signings that hurt this team. I can name them all, but really no point. You all know who I'm talking about all the way back to 2013.

    We are currently an above average team that gets to the playoffs because of RW. Without him we are below average at best. This may end up being the most important off-season (Cuts/Trades/Re-signings/FA signings/draft) in the history of our franchise. Yes, I do mean it.

    I don't happen to be overly enthusiastic about this acquisition, if it were to happen, but it's our first dive into the waters for this year and it does concern one of our positions of need...sort of.

    Not need as much as getting healthy which Olsen has not been either, he can take Dickson's spot really, Willson, Hollister, Dissley, Swoopes are what we had at the end of the year.

    I say resign Hollister first, then Willson, if Olsen can be signed for a friendly deal fine if not we bring in UDFA or draft one late or bring Swoopes back till Dissley can go.

    Only because I think the D line is more important versus a position group that have shown they can perform already and a Olsen signing may not really change what we have much due to his track record of issues the last few seasons.

  • Think the team overpaid for Olsen but this does give them security if they can't keep Hollister. Of course this is provided Olsen can stay healthy.

    I am apprehensive at present about the DLine b/c the cupboard there is rather empty in a year where the draft doesn't offer a lot of quality options.

    If Clowney can't be re-signed the team will need to reinvent their plan for the DLine in a market where options available will be costly. Finding more than one solid but cheaper options for the DLine will need to then be a focus. This is a situation where the FO will need to have some good fortune to attract the guys who could fit. It's easy to say they might screw up but this is a situation where they may not have much control and greed may overwhelm common sense. There could be level of contract proposed by Clowney the team is unwilling to pay for good common sense reasons. This might suck as the player was special at times in our scheme, when he was healthy. Reed is a situation where he likely will price himself out of a level the team may wish to pay, for him the suspension hurt his contract leverage. There are players out there that would be worth more than Reed if the money isn't right.

    Another direction might be to go cheap on the DLine for another year but bolster the OLine with a big FA OT acquisition. While bolstering the middle.

    Finding the right fits for the team is is easy in a Maddenesque world, but a lot harder when the cap exists. It's frustrating but we need to wait and see what happens in FA.

  • I share your apprehension Jammer. But I'm a Clowney believer. Love the guy. If there's any way we can swing it I hope he comes back as the key to making our defense stable. I'm good with our safeties, but we NEED one or 2 more solid/dependable corners for our secondary in addition to our obvious needs on the DL.
    We NEED another RB. We NEED help on the OL, although I was impressed at the work turned in by some of our guys from the PS.
    That's a lot of NEED to pay Clowney too much. I understand that. But at the same time I don't believe he is effectively replaceable.
    We better get to rubbing up our genie bottle.
    One thing I like about the Olsen deal is that it came down so early in the process and takes that spot out of further consideration. Now, what's next?

  • We are not far apart Appy. I truly think Clowney is special and should be kept, but the $ offered by a tam like NYG may not allow the team to keep him. If that happens it won't be b/c the FO fails, it will be the market that speaks. if that happens a plan B or C will need to be put into motion. To me the biggest area of concern is the DLine. So if the team were to lose both Clowney and Reed then a shift in focus might be appropriate.

  • If the FA market works against the team then a hard shift in focus might be appropriate.

    I like the idea then of trying to acquire OT-Conklin in FA, and maybe NCB- Chris Harris along with 2nd tier DLinemen. I'd personally have no problems letting Britt go and drafting an OC early along with a WR. The balance of the interior OLine seems to have potentially good depth at present. The RB will come in the draft, and Pn'J have been good at finding their types of guys there.

  • I was cruising around on Seahawks.com today in the wake of the Olsen signing and came across a tweet from BRITT, who appeared to be doing some lifting in the Seahawk weightroom. He looked great in the pic he posted.
    If Britt is already doing off season conditioning work I gotta think he's gonna be available. If he's available at a proper price, wouldn't that have a certain effect on our priorities list of needs?
    From QB perspective, there isn't much you want more than a center you are comfy with and trust. I'm guessing there is no other center Russ would name that he would prefer to Britt.

  • I agree Largent, even if we keep Britt we should use one of our picks to get one of the good centers in the draft. It isn't every year there are multiple GOOD centers available. This is one of those years.

    As FA period approaches rumors are flying. Maven has an entire Seahawk lineup of rumors posted. He mentions CLowney, Yannick, Collins, Suh, Reed, among others. Seems this is going to be a busy time just trying to keep up, even if you're Schneider! Gotta be on your toes to get stuff done in this type environment cause you might only get one chance for a guy you really want.

  • Center isn't going to be a focus I don't think, Harris I bet is the fall back option, D line and Guards are going to be first choices, I could be wrong but having Hunt, Pocic and some other kid on PS that was also a Center and then trying to teach Roos as well to get the position down tells me they are not as desperate in their minds. The other aspect is Wilson really, really likes Britt and he is a team leader.

  • Yep. Seems to me Britt is the focus at center, and IMO for good reason. But with Schneider telling us he is looking 2-3 years down the road I think a really good prospective center is in order. It's been proven to me we don't have a suitable backup plan if Britt goes down again. That's an extremely important position.Ask Russ what he thinks... In addition to a C I'd like to see us at least draft a good OT for the O Line. With all the QBs, WR, etc spreading the wealth among highest picks we'll have a chance to get a very good player where we pick.

    BUY us a GOOD experienced, proven, CB!

    I'm thinking the Yannick deal is too expensive. Keep Clowney with a workable deal, draft a prospect, and bring Irvin back (or some other effective FA) at the right price in addition to Green and Collier providing effective depth for the outside. We have Griff for edge speed. Give him a chance to shine.

    Not excited about the FA RB market. There are a number of guys in the draft who have shown they've got the right stuff. We have enough picks and on those that survive to later rounds the price is right. That (and Pete's good eye) is how we got Carson.

  • Saw this on bleacher report this morning.

    "Ifedi was responsible for 13 penalties and six sacks last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

    Seattle should replace Ifedi with steady veteran Bryan Bulaga. The longtime Packers starter has 10 years of experience and a playoff pedigree and hasn't had contract discussions with Green Bay.

    "There's been no talk," Bulaga told ESPN Wisconsin's Wilde and Tausch (h/t The Athletic's Jason Wilde).

    With Duane Brown anchoring one side and Bulaga anchoring the other, Russell Wilson might finally have the sort of reliable pass protection he's lacked for most of his career."

    DB T.J. Carrie To Visit Seahawks
    March 11th, 2020 at 3:58pm CST by Rory Parks

    "Free agent defensive back T.J. Carrie will visit with the Seahawks this week, per NFL insider Adam Caplan (via Twitter). The Browns released Carrie as part of a roster purge last month."
    There is interesting bio info following that quote at the link. Shows that things are happening whether we know about it or not. The cool thing about this one is they released him, so I don't think we would be out much if we bite on it.

  • It was just announced the new CBA passed by a "narrower than expected" vote. It is expected there will be an announcement later today regarding scheduling or delay of FA signing period and related NFL proceedings.

    The new CBA will include 17 game reg season with expanded playoff scenario THIS YEAR. I also deciphered the expanded playoff thing will either include the addition of a few expansion teams or elimination of a division as they mentioned that each division will have 1 team added.
    If there will be expansion teams, what do you think the chances are that 2 of them will be based in Mexico and GB?

  • As of now the new league year will begin on schedule.
    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/288 ... r-cba-vote

    The article outlines methods for teams doing business without necessity for travel or big in person meetings.

    "However, plans for the draft in Las Vegas from April 23-25 in front of tens of thousands of expected fans will almost certainly be put on pause, with ESPN's Adam Schefter saying the following on SportsCenter.

    "That's not going to happen. There's not going to be a crowd of fans at the draft this year," Schefter said. "I don't need the NFL to tell me that right now to know that. I'm telling you right know, that's not going to happen."

    The question is how and where the draft will be held, and Schefter posited that options could include keeping it in Vegas but holding it in a confined space or having networks shooting the draft results through their own home studios as opposed to a draft site."

    Matt Barrows

    @mattbarrows
    If there are no changes in NFL plans:
    • MON at 8:59 a.m. PST is the deadline for teams to apply the franchise tag
    • Monday at 9 a.m. PST, the so-called “legal tampering” window opens.
    WED at 1 p.m. PST, the new league year begins and teams can start signing other teams’ FAs.

    21
    4:04 PM - Mar 15, 2020


    The NFL's schedule is marching forward as of now.

    "Falcons cutting CB Desmond Trufant
    The Atlanta Falcons are releasing cornerback Desmond Trufant, according to multiple reports. The move saves the Falcons $4.95 million against the salary cap. Trufant had three years and $35.25 million left on his contract. The Falcons were looking for salary cap relief as they attempt to target an impact pass-rusher in free agency."
    Just in case that interests anyone.

  • A flurry of signings and agreements have taken a large share of the desirable pass rushers off the market today. That begs the question, can we afford NOT to pay Clowney?

  • Would love to see Trufant here, he's still damn good. And would be a massive upgrade over Flowers imo.
    Seems like 23 mil for 2 years is pretty high for Reed, but salaries are crazy these days so nothing is much of a shocker. Now he has a chance to prove he's worth it.

  • Seahawks have probably offered him 18-21 per season but he’s looking for more...

    And he’s having trouble finding that 22/23 mill per year deal. And maybe he doesn’t want to play for bad teams like the giants/dolphins

    Sounds like the #Seahawks and Isaiah Crowell may be close to getting something done. Not confirmed yet. Makes sense though.

    Teams with the most projected cap space in 2020

    1 Colts- $91.8M
    2 Dolphins- $91.4M
    3 Bills- $81.8M
    4 Bucs- $81.5M
    5 Cowboys- $79.5M
    6 Broncos- $62M
    7 Giants- $61.9M
    8 Titans- $54.5M
    9 Seahawks- $57.9M
    10 Raiders- $53.3M

    Of the 10 teams on that list Seattle has been, by FAR, outspent by the other 9, among others. We've not only not gained much in the way of significance, we LOST some good players we've been depending on.
    Are we depending on having such a stellar draft class we can continue to compete at the top? SF made a trade to pick up Rd1 pick #13. Like they needed that.

    Someone PLEASE let me in on our master plan is that's gonna work.

  • Good deal we get Irvin back. Here's some more to chew on:
    https://www.espn.com/nfl/team/_/name/se ... e-seahawks

    "Brady Henderson
    ESPN
    Some Seahawks housekeeping notes as we near the official start of free agency: Seattle has tendered WR Malik Turner, OL Jordan Roos, DT Bryan Mone and DB Ryan Neal as exclusive rights free agents. That effectively puts those players under contract for 2020 at the minimum salary. TE Tyrone Swoopes was not tendered, according to a source. The tenders the Seahawks gave to DE Branden Jackson and C Joey Hunt as restricted free agents were the low/original-round tenders worth $2.133 million."

  • I see, like me, lots of the natives here are restless due to the lack of quality additions during the initial rush of FA activity.
    RB Gurley has agreed with Falcons. Not that we had any serious interest, but that's another big name off the board.
    One interesting note is this:
    https://nfltraderumors.co/seahawks-card ... -j-walker/
    Seems we are showing interest in QB PJ Walker of the XFL. I know we've discussed his play here on the board, and wondered if he has NFL ability. Apparently the Seahawks share that interest, along with a couple other teams.

    Here's a tidbit detailing our current activity status: https://nfltraderumors.co/nfc-notes-pac ... vikings-3/
    It talks about Clowney, Finney contract, TT, and Simmons.

  • On the Clowney front...updated 3/21
    https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles ... 9_31614695
    "Jadeveon Clowney may end up back in Seattle after all. ProFootballTalk.com’s Mike Florio is hearing that the two sides are “moving toward a new deal.”

  • Big news on the draft.
    https://www.nbcsports.com/boston/patrio ... oronavirus

    " According to a recent report from Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, the NFL Draft from April 23-25 in Las Vegas has been canceled and the league is weighing its options moving forward.

    While the event still will take place next month, the current plan will be to move forward with a studio setting in which there will be cut-ins from team headquarters of the team making a selection at any given time, according to Farmer. "

    This is more what I expected, cut ins highlights and then calls to players listened to over phones.
