Could Fort be answer for Seahawks at fullback?

When Seattle signed LJ. Fort to its practice squad on Tuesday, the assumption was he would play the same position he had earlier in his NFL career --- linebacker. Instead, the Seahawks have plans to use Fort as a fullback, a spot where they currently don't have a healthy player with Derrick Coleman having surgery on his broken foot. Fort played 16 games at linebacker for the Browns in 2012 and most recently had been with Denver before being released prior to the season. But he hadn't played running back much since high school other than a few goal-line plays while at Northern Iowa. Fort said...

Seahawks list L.J. Fort at fullback on practice squad

With Derek Coleman still hanging in limbo with a broken foot -- he hasn't been placed on the injured reserve yet with a broken foot and Pete Carroll was vague when asked what the plan with him was this week -- the Seahawks signed free agent linebacker L.J. Fort and are apparently looking to groom him...

Talking defense with Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn

There's been a lot of focus lately on the Seattle defense, so I thought I would pass along the transcript of what Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn had to say today: (On when Head Coach Pete Carroll talked about doing some different things with the pass rush and how important it is to figure something out there) Well I think on most good third-downs there’s a mixture between the four man rush and the pressures and that’s really when we’re at our best. For us, it’s about improving. Really that’s at the core of our football. How much better can you get? Not just as our scheme,...

Why the Seahawks’ pass rush hasn’t been as good this season

The first pass rusher is still getting there with some consistency this season, but the Seahawks haven’t been nearly as good at getting a second or third guy around the quarterback.

“Ignore the noise”: Wilson refutes reports of divided locker room

Seattle’s quarterback says those across the country reporting there is discord within the 3-3 Seahawks are wrong. “There is no division in our locker room,” Wilson said. “Percy (Harvin) and…

Russell Wilson on Percy Harvin, “there’s no division in our locker room,” and where he gets his confidence

Just filed my story for tomorrow’s News Tribune on Russell Wilson saying “Percy and I never had differences” and “there’s no division in our locker room,” in response to the media reports around the country this week that have claimed otherwise about the 3-3 Seahawks. Here is all what Wilson said today before the outdoor practice at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center: QB Russell Wilson October 23, 2014   (On of all the stuff that quarterbacks are graded on, where does staying on the field and staying healthy for your team along with … Read more »

Quotes from Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson

Here's most of what Seattle QB Russell Wilson had to say to the media today: (On of all the stuff that quarterbacks are graded on, where does staying on the field and staying healthy for your team along with keeping your team healthy rank) Well I think there are a lot of variables to being a successful quarterback. I definitely believe simply being on the field all the time and getting those reps with your guys and also making smart decisions, whether if it’s me running the football and sliding and getting out of bounds, whether if it’s taking unnecessary hits. You want to be healthy; you...

8 things the Seattle Seahawks must fix to keep winning

Sound the alarm! Send up a flare! Use another cliche! The Super Bowl-champion Seattle Seahawks are 3-3. The 12th Man is understandably worried about their beloved Hawks and their lackluster effort through the first seven weeks of the season. And it certainly is a bad sign — the once-dominant Seahawks look nothing like a squad […]

Seahawks deny reports of a divided locker room

Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor denied reports of a division within the Seahawks players in the locker room. “There’s none at all,” Wilson said. “If anything, I think that we have continued to build.”
DE Bennett (toe), kick returner Walters (concussion) join those Seahawks not practicing; LB switch to FB

DE Bennett (toe), kick returner Walters (concussion) join those Seahawks not practicing; LB switch to FB

  The Seahawks practiced outside for the first time this week today in Renton. All but nine of them, that is. Defensive end Michael Bennett has a new toe injury and punt returner/kick returner/wide receiver Bryan Walters has a new concussion on today’s practice participation report. Since the Seahawks aren’t exactly whacking each other around in these mostly no-contact practices between games, it’s safe to assume Walters got his concussion in last weekend’s loss at St. Louis. If he can’t do the kickoff and punt returning Sunday at Carolina, 2013 returner Jermaine Kearse or Doug...

Seattle Seahawks injury report for Thursday: Walters, Bennett new names added to list

Two new names were added to Seattle's injury list Thursday --- receiver/returner Bryan Walters (concussion) and defensive lineman Michael Bennett (toe). The Walters injury could have a significant impact on the game Sunday as he is now the team's starting punt and kick returner. He was not listed on the report on Wednesday, so he either got hurt Wednesday of the symptoms showed up then. The NFL has a specific concussion protocol (which you can read here) but without knowing the specifics it's sort of hard to know exactly where Walters is in this process. But with Percy Harvin now gone, the...

Seahawks’ Russell Wilson on Percy Harvin rumors: ‘There’s no division in our locker room’

Responding to rampant rumors that Percy Harvin caused such a rift in the Seahawks locker room that it divided the team, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson could only chuckle Thursday. “There’s no division in our locker room. There’s none at all,” Wilson said with a smile before practice at the VMAC. “If anything, I think we’ve […]

Seattle Seahawks' Wilson, Chancellor and Thomas: No division in locker room

Three of the most high-profile Seattle Seahawks --- quarterback Russell Wilson and safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor --- met the media today prior to practice (for Wilson and Thomas it was simply their regular day to talk to the press). And amid some national reports that the Seahawks are locker room divided, the three in their interview sessions presented a united front saying that everything is fine. "There's no division in our locker room,'' Wilson said. "There’s none at all. If anything I think that we have continued to build, continuing to grow, if anything. I truly believe...

Russell Wilson: “Percy Harvin & I never had differences…Ignore the noise…There is no division in our locker room”

On his way out to practice this afternoon, quarterback Russell Wilson was more expansive than I expected him to be in addressing a national online report yesterday that there is division in the locker room, there is a rift in the Seahawks’ locker room between a pro-Wilson and anti-Wilson camp and that the now-traded Percy Harvin was “an accelerant” to that divide. “There’s no division in our locker room. There’s none at all,” Wilson said behind a podium at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center here in Renton three days before Seattle (3-3) plays at Carolina (3-3-1). “If...
