Rashaad Penny’s weight changes yet again

Rashaad Penny’s weight changes yet again

Following the Seattle Seahawks’ second consecutive loss to begin the season, there was a lot to unpack. Offensive incompetence. Miscommunication. Something called “Competitive thoughts.” Abandoning Chris Carson. Losing Tom Johnson for no good reason. Perhaps lost in the shuffle was something Pete Carroll mentioned on the radio on Tuesday morning, regarding rookie running back Rashaad Penny. According to Carroll, Penny is down eight pounds and that was part of the reason they gave him such a heavy workload in the second half of Monday’s loss. Regardless of whether the second...

Report: Seahawks release DT Tom Johnson

Report: Seahawks release DT Tom Johnson

Two days after making an unexpected addition in Mychal Kendricks, the Seattle Seahawks have made another curious move, releasing veteran defensive tackle Tom Johnson. The move was first reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, who added the Seahawks are likely to re-sign Johnson next week. A surprise move: The #Seahawks have informed starting DT Tom Johnson they're releasing him, per sources. They're beat up and need the roster spot. Johnson's salary is already guaranteed and they'll likely re-sign him next week. For now ... he's a free agent.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero)...

Seahawks-Bears: The Friday Rundown, Week 2

Seahawks-Bears: The Friday Rundown, Week 2

Following a season opening loss to the Denver Broncos, the Seattle Seahawks will make their prime-time debut in 2018, heading to Chicago to face the Bears on Monday Night Football. Chicago, meanwhile, is coming off a crushing defeat at the hands of Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Both teams are facing down a dreaded 0-2 start and it should result in a tightly contested game. Offensive and Defensive Primers Bears head coach Matt Nagy had been with Andy Reid his entire coaching career prior to getting his own head coaching gig and so, unsurprisingly, his offense is deeply rooted in a...

Snap Reactions: Notes on the Seahawks’ snap counts from Sunday’s loss to the Broncos

Snap Reactions: Notes on the Seahawks’ snap counts from Sunday’s loss to the Broncos

More so than usual, the Seattle Seahawks’ snap counts on Sunday were of interest. A couple of contributing factors—mainly the health of certain players and altitude—led to curious usage for a few players. Every week, we’re going to go over any player’s snap counts that are worth noting or otherwise worth discussion. First, here are the full snap counts from offense, defense and special teams from Sunday’s loss to the Denver Broncos: Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny’s equal workloads In Seattle’s first game with both Carson and Penny, the two backs...

Seahawks-Broncos: Doug Baldwin leaves game with knee injury, ruled out

Seahawks-Broncos: Doug Baldwin leaves game with knee injury, ruled out

The Seattle Seahawks have their first injury concern of the regular season. Doug Baldwin, having missed all of the team’s preseason with a knee injury, left the game in the first half of the Seahawks’ Week 1 matchup against the Denver Broncos. After initially going down, Baldwin did return for a handful of snaps, before departing again. He was officially ruled out soon after the second half began. As The News Tribune’s Gregg Bell points out, the knee injury Baldwin suffered against the Broncos was not on the same knee that kept him out throughout August. Doug Baldwin looked like...

Seahawks-Broncos inactives: Nazair Jones a surprise scratch

Seahawks-Broncos inactives: Nazair Jones a surprise scratch

Though K.J. Wright and D.J. Fluker were expected to miss the Seattle Seahawks’ first game of the season, and will, Nazair Jones’ name is a surprise addition. The second year defensive tackle played much better than expected in his rookie year, and was presumably set for another year in a rotational role. At least initially, it appears as though Jones is the odd man out in a deep group of defensive tackles. Another surprising name to see was Mike Davis, who appeared to have won the third down back competition in preseason. Instead, C.J. Prosise gets the nod on game day. Here’s the...

Seahawks-Broncos preview: The Friday Rundown, Week 1

Seahawks-Broncos preview: The Friday Rundown, Week 1

The offseason is officially over, and the Seattle Seahawks will kickoff their 2018 season on Sunday afternoon, away to the Denver Broncos. The Broncos, like the Seahawks, are in the midst of a transition phase. As talent-poor as Denver may appear, playing at altitude is a difficult task and it will be a hard slog for Seattle to defeat the Broncos. This year’s pre-game column will look a little different to last year’s. Instead of just focusing on what to watch, we’re going to hit on a few different areas: The numbers that matter, matchups to watch and which opposing player you might...

Earl Thomas returns to practice on Wednesday, Seahawks granted roster exemption

Earl Thomas returns to practice on Wednesday, Seahawks granted roster exemption

Following a lengthy holdout, Earl Thomas reported to the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday morning. Later that morning, Pete Carroll told reporters “We’ll let you know,” regarding Thomas’s status for Sunday in Denver against the Broncos. And by Wednesday afternoon, Thomas was back on the field at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center, practicing in full pads with his Seahawks teammates once again. Although it will still be a few days until we know whether Thomas will suit up for Seattle on Sunday or not, Wednesday was a big, unexpected step forward as the Seahawks and Thomas move...

Report: Earl Thomas to report to Seahawks on Wednesday

Report: Earl Thomas to report to Seahawks on Wednesday

Wednesday morning brought two more twists to the Earl Thomas saga. First, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Dallas Cowboys had recently improved their offer for the All-Pro safety. A second round pick has eluded the Seahawks all offseason as Thomas held out for either a new contract or a trade; per Schefter, the Cowboys finally put a second round selection on the table. Yet, the offer was rejected. Within the past week, Dallas upped its offer to the Seahawks for Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas to a second-round pick, per sources. Seattle wasn’t interested; it wants more.— Adam Schefter...

Seahawks practice squad candidates from across the NFL

Seahawks practice squad candidates from across the NFL

After all 32 franchises cut their rosters down to 53 players from 90 for Saturday’s 1 pm deadline, they now switch their focus to waivers and filling out their practice squads. The waiver claim period will end on Sunday morning at 9 am PST and then at 10 am PST, teams can begin to officially fill out their 10-man practice squads. As always, the Seattle Seahawks’ initial practice squad will be made up of both players who were on the Seahawks’ preseason roster, and those who were waived across the league on Saturday. Before we look around the league, here’s a few players who were...

Report: Seahawks don’t plan on trading Earl Thomas

Report: Seahawks don’t plan on trading Earl Thomas

As the Seattle Seahawks work on trimming their roster from 90 to 53, a player not counting towards the roster continues to draw attention. First, on Friday, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported multiple teams, including the Dallas Cowboys, had recently reached out regarding Earl Thomas. However, Pelissero added to his report by saying no team had met the Seahawks’ asking price and that Seattle was in no hurry. On Saturday afternoon, ESPN’s Adam Schefter emphasized the latter part of Pelissero’s report, stating the Seahawks have no intention of dealing Thomas “Unless another team...

Report: Dion Jordan activated off PUP list, will start the season on active roster

Report: Dion Jordan activated off PUP list, will start the season on active roster

Of all the moves the Seattle Seahawks will make on Saturday, it’s unlikely any will be more important than this one. After spending all of training camp and preseason on the PUP list, edge rusher Dion Jordan is reportedly being activated in time for the regular season. The #Seahawks are taking pass-rusher Dion Jordan off the PUP list and he’ll be active, source said. He was dealing with a leg injury but doing well.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 1, 2018 Jordan was placed on the PUP list following the first day of training camp, and although he was initially expected to...

Report: Seahawks trade WR Marcus Johnson to the Colts for TE Darrell Daniels

Report: Seahawks trade WR Marcus Johnson to the Colts for TE Darrell Daniels

Just as we suspected after the Seattle Seahawks reportedly acquired Shalom Luani earlier on Saturday afternoon, John Schneider isn’t done. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the Seahawks have made a player-for-player swap, trading wide receiver Marcus Johnson to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for tight end Darrell Daniels. Johnson, acquired in a trade that included Michael Bennett, was unlikely to make the 53-man roster in a crowded position group. Instead, he’s flipped to the Colts, who lost rookie Deon Cain for the season earlier in August. The acquisition of Daniels...
