Seahawks sign third round pick Rasheem Green to complete their 2018 class

Seahawks sign third round pick Rasheem Green to complete their 2018 class

The Seattle Seahawks announced the signing of DE Rasheem Green, the team’s third round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, on Wednesday. Green was the final member of the Seahawks’ 2018 draft class who remained unsigned and now Seattle has all nine selections under contract. Green was selected with the 79th overall pick, which was the Arizona Cardinals’ original third round selection. The four-year deal is worth just over $3.3 million in total value and will pay Green $708k as a rookie, according to estimates from Over the Cap. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive lineman surprised some by...

Checking in on the Seahawks’ defense and potential camp battles

Checking in on the Seahawks’ defense and potential camp battles

After taking a look at the offense and potential camp battles on Tuesday, it’s time to look at the Seattle Seahawks’ defense today. While there’s quality competition at every level of the defense, the biggest variable is, of course Earl Thomas, who is currently holding out until his contract situation is resolved. Position-by-position, let’s take a look at the state of the defense during the last phase of offseason workouts, before training camp gets underway in late July. Defensive Tackle (4) Locks: Jarran Reed, Tom Johnson, Nazair Jones On the bubble: Shamar Stephen, Poona...

Watch: Kyle Shanahan on whether defenses have figured out the zone read

Watch: Kyle Shanahan on whether defenses have figured out the zone read

The zone read, or read option, exploded onto the NFL in the early parts of this decade, as offenses featuring Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III all ran it with great success. Kaepernick most notably delivered it into the consciousness of every NFL fan with an incredible 181-yard, two touchdown performance in his first playoff start against the Green Bay Packers. Since then, with Griffin’s career being derailed by injuries and Kaepernick’s play dropping off in the 2014 and 2015 seasons, much has been made about the staying power of the zone read. While rumors of its...

Seahawks sign linebacker Austin Calitro

Seahawks sign linebacker Austin Calitro

The Seattle Seahawks made a pair of roster moves on Wednesday afternoon, signing linebacker Austin Calitro to the roster and waiving EDGE Dadi Nicolas, keeping the team’s roster at 90. Calitro, who went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft, spent a short time on the Seahawks’ practice squad last September prior to being released. The linebacker had stints with the San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets as well, before ending the year on the Cleveland Browns’ practice squad and then signed a future contract. In a strange connection, the Browns waived Calitro last month to make room on the...

Checking in on the Seahawks’ offense and potential camp battles ahead of minicamp

Checking in on the Seahawks’ offense and potential camp battles ahead of minicamp

With free agency, the draft, rookie minicamp and OTAs behind us, there is just one final phase to get through before the real quiet part of the offseason begins. Mandatory minicamp opens Tuesday and runs through Thursday, giving teams a final look at their roster before personnel and players go off on vacation. While there isn’t much to glean from these few days - the most newsworthy parts of minicamp being who isn’t there rather than who is - it’s a good chance to take a look at the roster and potential battles before training camp opens in late July. We’re going to go through the...

The problems with the Seahawks signing Brandon Marshall

The problems with the Seahawks signing Brandon Marshall

Adding to their depleted wide receiver corps late last month, the Seattle Seahawks signed veteran free agent receiver Brandon Marshall. The 12-year veteran is a player the Seahawks and Pete Carroll have coveted since Carroll’s first year in Seattle and eight years later, Carroll got his man. Of course, the Marshall that Carroll pursued in 2010 was coming off a 101-catch, 1120-yard and 10 touchdown season, entering his fifth NFL season. The Marshall that Carroll ended up with is a 34-year-old coming off major ankle surgery and an 18-catch, 154-yard season with no touchdowns, entering his...

Damore’ea Stringfellow could offer the Seahawks a skill set similar to Paul Richardson’s

Damore’ea Stringfellow could offer the Seahawks a skill set similar to Paul Richardson’s

A familiar name returned to Seattle following the Seahawks’ rookie minicamp early last month. Damore’ea Stringfellow, a former University of Washington recruit who was suspended from the team following a fight with fans in Seattle after Super Bowl XLVIII, then ultimately transferred to Ole Miss, signed with the team after impressing during a tryout. Following his transfer from the Huskies, Stringfellow went on to play two seasons at Ole Miss, posting 82 receptions for 1219 yards and 11 touchdowns before going undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft. Stringfellow impressed as a rookie free...

Should the Seahawks target Adonis Alexander in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft?

Should the Seahawks target Adonis Alexander in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft?

The offseason is well into its most quiet period, as free agency and the draft are firmly behind us and OTAs quietly hum along. However, the offseason threw one final curveball this past weekend, as now former Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander was ruled academically ineligible for the 2018 season. The senior subsequently declared his intention to enter the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft. Alexander’s decision to return to Virginia Tech for his senior season came as a surprise to many, as the CB reportedly received a positive grade from the College Advisory Committee. Alexander...

What each defensive UDFA could bring to the 53-man roster in 2018 and beyond

What each defensive UDFA could bring to the 53-man roster in 2018 and beyond

On Tuesday, we previewed the Seattle Seahawks’ UDFAs on the offensive side of the ball. Those five rookies don’t move the needle much and beyond fullback Khalid Hill and/or guard Skyler Phillips, it’s tough to see any of them making the 53-man roster. Seattle’s crop of defensive UDFAs, however, are much more intriguing prospects. There’s drop EDGE/OTTO LB Jacob Pugh, who the Seahawks gave the largest bonus to, as well as defensive tackle Poona Ford, who had no business going undrafted. In total, Seattle signed six UDFAs on defense and should get contributions in 2018 from at least...

Seahawks Area Scout Jim Nagy to become the Senior Bowl’s new Executive Director

Seahawks Area Scout Jim Nagy to become the Senior Bowl’s new Executive Director

The Seattle Seahawks are losing another member of their personnel department. Former director of pro personnel Dan Morgan was named director of player personnel for the Buffalo Bills earlier in May and now former Southeast scout Jim Nagy has followed him out the door. Nagy will replace Phil Savage as the Executive Director of the Senior Bowl after Savage and the college All-Star game parted ways following six extremely successful years. Nagy has served as the Seahawks’ Southeast Area Scout for the last five seasons and was previously based out of Mobile, making the transition to Senior...

Video: Seattle’s Legion of Boom was assembled from scraps

Video: Seattle’s Legion of Boom was assembled from scraps

The biggest news out of last week’s OTAs for the Seattle Seahawks was a position switch, or rather, a side of the field switch. Sophomore cornerback Shaquill Griffin had made the change over to the left side, the same side Richard Sherman made famous - and largely ignored - for so many seasons. The move not only allows Byron Maxwell to return to his more comfortable right side, but signals a departure from the Legion of Boom Seahawk fans once knew. Richard Sherman is in San Francisco with the 49ers; Brandon Browner hasn’t played an NFL game since 2015; Kam Chancellor may never play...

What each offensive UDFA could bring to the 53-man roster in 2018 and beyond

With rookie minicamp and OTAs in the rear view mirror, the Seattle Seahawks’ UDFA class heading into training camp is more or less established. As it stands, Seattle will enter camp with five undrafted free agents on offense and seven on defense. For a team that traditionally has gotten contributions on some level from rookie free agents every season under Pete Carroll, it’s fair to expect at least one player to emerge on either side of the ball and aid the 53-man roster in 2018. Khalid Hill & Marcus Martin It should be safe to assume only one of the two fullbacks will make it out of...

Jacob Pugh has a good shot at making the 53-man roster

Production and contributions from undrafted free agents have been a staple of the John Schneider-Pete Carroll regime. The Seattle Seahawks have approached rookie free agency as aggressively as other franchises approach unrestricted free agency, with Carroll tapping into his past as a recruiter at USC. The attention given to the post-draft frenzy every year has paid off, as the Seahawks have acquired impact players at a massive bargain rate, such as Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and DeShawn Shead. Last season was no different in Seattle, with 17 undrafted players on the active roster by the...
