  • It'll be interesting to see if teams' draft rooms are observing social distancing. Also, it'll be telling to see the homes of the players...how they usually have dozens of people waiting for the call...all crowded on the couch.

    I'll make a prediction: the player drafted that has the fewest people at their draft party, will be the best pick in Seahawk's draft. Smart, healthy, physically prepared for camp....

  • :lol: Good post chrispy! Shows healthy cognisense. Somehow I expect the urgency of the moment will prevail with big private draft parties to share the thrill of victory and the agony of disappointing results. But it will be interesting to see if your prediction works out. It's pretty clear we're depending on getting some good help in the draft.

    I've been spending a of of time with my ear on the rumor rumblings. But there are so many people at home with nothing to do too many use that time for negative impact pursuits through fake accounts for posting lies etc. Hard to trust what you see and hear. Our team site doesn't post anything that isn't signed, sealed, and the ink dried for at least 24 hours, so here we sit, with no bait, watching the minnows and a few biggees left swimming around in the FA talent pool aquarium. Seems like it's a contest to see if our frustration grows faster than those minnows.

  • We've had some discussion regarding interest in XFL QB PJ Walker coming in to compete as Russ backup, but this showed up this morning:

    Panthers add XFL star P.J. Walker to compete for the backup spot at QB. I singled them out as a landing spot that makes sense back on March 14, exactly three years ago today

  • I'm hoping losing the Ifedi contract frees up enough money for us to get the Clowney deal finalized.

  • I read earlier today the Ravens expensive deal for DE Brocking fell through. Hope that doesn't result in them becoming a bidding candidate for Clowney. They have spent a bunch in FA but the Brocking deal was a 31M chunk of that.

    Former Broncos’ DE Derek Wolfe reached agreement on an 1-year deal worth up to $6 million with the Baltimore Ravens, per source.

    Heres what Bumpus 710 had to say on the subject this morning:
    https://sports.mynorthwest.com/836222/b ... -seahawks/

    "MARCH 28, 2020 AT 3:00 PM (snips Read it all at the link above)

    Michael Bumpus thinks the Seahawks will be able to keep Jadeveon Clowney. (Getty)

    After four seasons with the Houston Texans, Clowney was traded to the Seahawks for a third-round pick and two players. That gives Seattle an edge, Bumpus said.

    “I think he’s going to go back to what’s familiar. He’s definitely not going back to Houston, I can guarantee that, so what’s the next best thing? It’s Seattle,” he said.
    “He’s doing exactly what he’s supposed to do,” Bumpus said. “If he’s not getting the offers that he wants or that intrigues him, then you’ve got to hold out and wait this thing out and hope that maybe a in a month or so, he’s able to travel and go check out teams and whatnot.”
    ” They know his ins, his outs, his injuries, what his timelines are like,” Bumpus said. “They know him the best, so I think they’re going to give him at least a fair offer. He might not like the offer – I never though the Seahawks would give him the offer that he wanted – but I thought they would give him a fair offer. And I think he’s probably seeing that that’s the best that he’s going to get..."

  • Another dead day on the Seahawk FA news end. All Clowney stories are basically repeats. There were a number of signings but none involving Seahawks past, present, or future. So I've spent the past 2 days catching up on my most pressing to-do list around the ranch as we are due for another big dose of rain all night tonight and into tomorrow. I'm as ready as I can be for action of both fronts.

  • We're having a little ice storm this morning, so after I finished chores I took a quick trip through the rumor and deal section of the net. IT's all just rehashes of what we've got going in threads downstream. Except for one item regarding Yannick. Sounds as though the Jags are finally starting to make overtures by leaking that they expect to get at least a first round pick "and more" for him. He reportedly still has 18M outstanding on his current contract which, should he sign the tender, is fully guaranteed for the upcoming season. That's a hefty ticket. He played this past season for $834,269.
    https://nfltraderumors.co/jaguars-looki ... k-ngakoue/

    All things considered Clowney remains the most attractive rusher for Seattle to secure. It's just a matter of getting all the "i"s and "t"s figured out by both parties. Word is Clowney is in no rush but Seahawks have a limit to their patience. Sounds like a game of chicken on a gravel road.

  • Still no news on the Clowney front. There are fresh headlines, but the stories are (like this post) re-hash fluff jobs. Cleveland is now the object of press affection due to them having the cap space to do most anything they want, and they have wanted a lot during this FA season. But they're still just Cleveland in terms of contention. Kind of like a claiming horse in the Derby lineup. They have made progress on paper, but not yet on the track.

  • Amid concerns over problems with technology used to accomplish the upcoming draft it appears all 32 teams will participate in a pre-draft trial session.
    https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/c ... ll/page/2/

    Going to pg 3 at the link above you can scroll down to find this about Yannick:

    "Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue hasn’t changed his tune about playing for the Jaguars.

    Ngakoue said before the team used the franchise tag that he wanted to move on and reiterated that point late last month when he said that it is obvious his time in Jacksonville is up. During an appearance on ESPN Tuesday, Ngakoue shared some of what he hopes to find with a new team.

    “I really wanna be a part of a team that has a great culture,” Ngakoue said. “Winning is a habit and I don’t want to be with a team where losing is a norm of anything of that nature. I want to be a part of something special.”

    A recent report indicated the Jaguars are in the market for a first-round pick and other considerations in order to move Ngakoue in a trade. No one has hit that price yet and the Jags showed with cornerback Jalen Ramsey that they are willing to bide their time until an offer they want comes their way.

  • With Cleveland being the most oft mentioned Clowney suitor recently, I found the following article addressing that topic today.
    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... ney-rumors

    It doesn't sound like Cleveland is breaking their neck in hot pursuit.

    This may continue until after the draft when things are more set.

  • Looking like you're probably right chris. The draft is getting closer day by day. I an hardly wait to see what surprises our guys pull on us this year. I have my own priorities and hopes, but they almost always fool me. I can tell you Collier was not even on my radar!
    Here's the latest on Clowney from BR. Nothing really new, but working from home for this long all the rumor factories don't have much to work with. Top storyline.

    Wont affect the draft but it could serve to further delay any OTAs or camp.

  • The draft begins 5 days from now. That will give us 2 days of anguish to hash out, then a lot of stuff to talk about while admiring our new stable of steeds. Then we can get back to where we're at with Clowney, Griff, and the Yannick thing, but with a new perspective on our roster needs as we hold our breath for safe times to have OTA and camp sessions.
    I'm looking forward to it, but I want it to be safe for all so we don't have to start his whole virus thing all over again.

  • As if draft anticipation weren't already enough, we get started early with the anguish...

    https://nypost.com/2020/04/18/mekhi-bec ... raft-2020/

    Becton wasn't the only one either.
    "The former Louisville star was one of multiple prospects to have a drug test flagged at the NFL Combine, NFL Network reported Friday."

    The latest CBS mock of entire draft is not all that encouraging from Seahawk standpoint.

What a difference the digital age has made! I recall haivng only one shot at watching a play because it was so much trouble to rewind the film reel on the projector. :lol:

    Apparently there were serious problems in yesterday trial run with all teams participating just as they would have for the real deal. There were technical problems and worries about hackers, to name 2 concerns. Bandwidth another.
