PFF Stats from Seahawks-Cardinals: Dion Jordan exceeds expectations in win

PFF Stats from Seahawks-Cardinals: Dion Jordan exceeds expectations in win

If there is hopefulness in life without Richard Sherman, perhaps we can find it in reviewing life without Cliff Avril. Though Sherman is more well-known, well-regarded as an elite player, and arguably more valuable, Avril has still be an extremely important player to the Seattle Seahawks over the previous four seasons. And we know that the value difference between him and Sherman is at least fairly close, with Avril often being the best player on the field when Seattle’s on defense. Yet the Seahawks are doing more than just surviving without him, in large thanks due to their defensive end...

Injuries will test Seahawks’ defensive depth, perhaps uncover a new star

Now multiple defensive backs, defensive linemen missing in action There is no bright side to seeing Richard Sherman confess to a season-ending injury on the sideline, to seeing Earl Thomas in street clothes, to seeing Kam Chancellor and Shaquill Griffin leave the same game. There is no bright side to having linemen Sheldon Richardson, Michael Bennett, Quinton Jefferson, Jarran Reed all dinged up and/or missing time — not with Cliff Avril already on IR with a neck injury of unspecified severity. The relative best that can come from so many defensive injuries, which have snowballed into a...

Dwight Freeney has been a midseason steal so far

Dwight Freeney has been a midseason steal so far

The loss by the Seattle Seahawks this week was disappointing, however, one bright spot was a second consecutive impact game from Dwight Freeney. Added in the wake of Cliff Avril moving to IR after suffering a neck injury that may or may not be career ending, there were some who questioned how much of an impact Freeney could have at 37 — after recording one of the least productive seasons of his career as a member of the Atlanta Falcons in 2016. Apparently, whoever is in charge of the defense in Atlanta has no idea what they are doing or how to deploy a weapon such as Freeney. Freeney...

Breaking down the Dwight Freeney contract

Breaking down the Dwight Freeney contract

The big news on the Seattle Seahawks this week was the addition of Dwight Freeney to fill the roster spot left empty when the team placed Cliff Avril on IR last week. On Wednesday, we took a look at some of the highlights of Freeney’s career, and now that the details of Freeney’s contract have been made public we can talk about that. It was through a tweet from Field Yates that I first learned of the details of Freeney’s contract. If there was another source that broke the details earlier, I will happily edit this article to provide proper credit. In any case, the tweet from Yates...

Watch highlights of newest Seattle Seahawks pass rusher, the legendary Dwight Freeney

Watch highlights of newest Seattle Seahawks pass rusher, the legendary Dwight Freeney

With Cliff Avril moving to IR and Michael Bennett fighting a foot injury that seems to have sapped much of his explosiveness, the Seattle Seahawks signed Dwight Freeney to come in as a situational pass rusher. Freeney has been in the NFL a long time since being drafted 11th overall by the Indianapolis Colts out of Syracuse in the 2002 draft, and has put together quite a career in the decade and a half since. I could go on and on about the deadliness of his lethal spin move, his penchant for forcing fumbles when he sacks the QB and all his other abilities, but frankly, I don’t think...

Dwight Freeney could potentially fill the Seahawks’ open roster spot

The Seattle Seahawks may take a look at an interesting name to fill Cliff Avril’s roster spot, with the Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta reporting Monday afternoon that he’s heard Dwight Freeney could be an option for the Seahawks. On Monday evening, Dave Mahler of 950 KJR went further, reporting Freeney is on the way to Seattle and will visit the Seahawks tomorrow. At 37, Freeney is still a free agent after playing last season with the Atlanta Falcons. The longtime Indianapolis Colt would be a positive signing for Seattle for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is he still has...

Seahawks-Giants final injury report: Jeremy Lane doubtful, C.J. Prosise questionable

It looks as if Seattle Seahawks rookie CB Shaquill Griffin will once again be pressed into starting duties, as normal starter Jeremy Lane has been listed as doubtful to play in Sunday’s road game against the New York Giants. Lane injured his groin during the team’s 46-18 win over the Indianapolis Colts on October 1st, and missed Seattle’s win over the Rams two weeks ago. As expected, Luke Joeckel and Cliff Avril are out, with the latter placed on injured reserve. The questionable tags for Michael Bennett, Marcus Smith, and Nazair Jones aren’t really worth being worried about....
