Seahawks news: Kam Chancellor to get more tests done on injured neck

It goes without saying that the Seattle Seahawks were one of the most injury-riddled teams in the 2017 NFL season. Among their notable key losses was that of safety Kam Chancellor due to a neck injury. Although it is reported to be quite severe, Chancellor has every intention of making his return to the field. […] The post Seahawks news: Kam Chancellor to get more tests done on injured neck appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Seahawks needs leading into the draft

If the Seahawks had to field a 53-man team right now and play before the draft starts on Thursday, who would be their “weakest starters”? Chris Carson looked like an excellent starting running back in his short stint last season, but there is an issue of small sample size and coming off of an injury. So while I do believe that Carson has the talent, there has to be a consideration for how confident one feels in said player being able to display that talent week-to-week. I like Carson a lot, but I lack confidence still, so running back is certainly a need. The outside receivers at the...

Earl Thomas trade rumors all seem to have common roots

On Wednesday I took a look at why Seattle Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas not showing up for offseason workouts was not a big deal. I had planned to follow up today with an article about why it makes sense for Thomas to skip workouts, and then commenter betaparticle went and stole the first half of that article with the following simple, yet spot on, comment. Chandler Jones just signed a longer term contract for $16.5m a year, with up to $53m guaranteed of which $48m is already guaranteed, so there is little risk to a preseason injury. On the other hand, Earl Thomas and Aaron Donald are...

Has Pete Carroll’s ‘rah rah’ act with Seahawks cratered? It seems unlikely

Reports about recent departures raise the question, but the results show that his approach is fine. Remember the Seahawks were a few missed field goals away from finishing 12-4 with injuries to several key players.

The bright side of the Malik McDowell affair

If the Seahawks’ 2017 draft pick never plays in the NFL, take that as a sign of the improvement in the league’s concussion climate Reports that Malik McDowell still hasn’t been medically cleared by the Seattle Seahawks, and that Seattle plans to release the 2017 second round pick without him ever playing a snap in the NFL, are obviously bad news for McDowell and for the Seahawks—and, less directly but more widely felt, bad news for all the fans hoping the organization’s recent draft investments successfully restock the roster with premier talent. But there is a way to look at the...

By releasing Malik McDowell, Seahawks again can move on from some drama

McDowell, the Seahawks’ top draft pick in 2017, suffered a season-ending head injury in an ATV accident. A pattern appears to be developing, one that links their offseason moves. The decks are being cleared of matters that will detract from the on-field development of the team.

Why the Seahawks moved on from Michael Bennett

In early March when the Seattle Seahawks traded Michael Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles for little more than a bag of balls and some bubble gum, many fans were upset. They understood that a highly compensated defensive lineman in his thirties who had battled multiple injuries in recent seasons would not warrant a significant amount in return, however, today some new light was shed on why the Hawks may have moved on from Bennett. Interesting nugget from @GregBishopSI on @710ESPNSeattle: Michael Bennett told him he'd read books during team meetings last year because he'd already heard...

What if you had given up on Doug Baldwin after 2 years?

There’s plenty of frustration festering around Seahawks fans when it comes to the progress, or lack thereof, from many of their draft picks in the last few years. The 2017 rookie class featured potential stars in Shaquill Griffin, Nazair Jones, and Chris Carson, but even then all three missed some time due to injury, with Carson missing 12 games as Seattle missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011. Malik McDowell missed the whole season and may never debut, while third rounders Delano Hill and Amara Darboh barely played. Second rounder Ethan Pocic played several positions, but...

Former Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski joins Seahawks

Former Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has found a new home. Janikowski signed a free-agent deal with the Seattle Seahawks on Friday. ESPN reported it as a one-year deal. Janikowski, 40, became a free agent in March when the Raiders chose not to re-sign him after 18 years with the franchise. Janikowski departed as the Raiders’ all-time leader in games played (268) and points (1,799). He did not play last season because of a back injury. If healthy, Janikowski represents a potential replacement for the Seahawks for Blair Walsh, who was...

Offseason quiz followup: Paul Richardson was not as injury prone as fans believe

So far this offseason I’ve started to look at the expectations fans should have regarding the draft, we’ve looked at what plagued Eddie Lacy in the running game in 2017 and I’ve conducted a handful of polls on certain topics to ascertain how correctly fans understand certain topics. One of those polls was on former Seattle Seahawks, but now Washington Redskins, wide receiver Paul Richardson. Namely, I wanted to see just how injury prone fans thought he was because I kept seeing comments that seemed to exaggerate his injury history and availability. Well, today we’ll take a quick...

Set to workout for the Seahawks, Dallas Goedert could be the NFL’s next great tight end

The top tight end in the 2018 NFL Draft, Dallas Goedert put the finishing touches on his case at South Dakota State’s pro day, where the former Jackrabbit tested terrifically in the vertical jump, broad jump, short shuttle and three cone drill. Goedert didn’t test at the Scouting Combine after suffering an injury at the Senior Bowl, but should have done enough to keep himself in the conversation to be the first tight end taken, competing with Penn State’s Mike Gesicki. Goedert is set to workout for the Seattle Seahawks and would immediately fill the void left by Jimmy Graham’s...

Set to visit the Seahawks, Christian Kirk has the qualities of a dangerous slot receiver

Although Christian Kirk didn’t test nearly as well as expected at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, the former Texas A&M wide receiver remains near the top of his position in this year’s draft. Kirk was reliable over three seasons with the Aggies, averaging 78 catches per season to go along with 952 yards and just under nine touchdowns. At Nike’s The Opening in 2014, Kirk tested terrifically, posting a SPARQ score of 129.3, however he was unable to maintain that level despite suffering no major injuries during his college career. Among wide receivers, his testing was average and...

Jeremy Lane pleads guilty to being bad

On the same day that the Seattle Seahawks released cornerback Richard Sherman, the team also released corner back Jeremy Lane. Two years into the four year contract Lane signed in 2016 and coming off a season in which he returned from the gruesome injuries which he suffered in Super Bowl XLIX, Lane capitalized on a hot market for defensive backs, but never lived up to the price tag the contract carried. By the middle of the 2017 season he had lost his starting roles, first to Shaquill Griffin on the outside and then to Justin Coleman in the nickel. Lane’s release earlier this month came...

Last week the Seattle Seahawks announced they had agreed to a contract with Marcus Smith II to return and play defensive line for 2018, and today on Twitter Smith announced that he played through an injury during 2017 that limited his ability. Most fans are aware that Michael Bennett played the majority of the 2017 season with plantar fascia in his foot, which limited his abilities on the field, however Monday we learned that Marcus Smith played through a torn ligament in his foot this season.

Sweat is an elite athlete, testing in the 95th-percentile, and had flashes of Jadeveon Clowney-esque brilliance at Florida State. There is a reason Sweat is viewed in the second-tier of pass rushers, however, and it’s the question of consistency. For every grown-ass-man-making-a-grown-ass-man-play moments he had with the Seminoles, there were a handful of nothing rushes and lazily chasing the ball carrier against the run....
