Seahawks Intrested in another QB??

 

 

 

 

According to Peter King of SI.com, if Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill falls out of the top ten, the Seattle Seahawks would love to take him, even though they signed Matt Flynn as a free agent.

“At Tannehill’s workout,” one source told King, “[coach] Pete Carroll was giggling like a schoolgirl watching him throw. His attitude was like, ‘What are we even doing here? He’ll never be there for us.’ ”

If the Seahawks ended up landing Tannehill, it would give them two potential franchise quarterbacks and they could let Tannehill sit while Flynn tries to prove himself.

 

Another Mock Draft before the Draft

12. Seattle Seahawks: Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

Good move by the Seahawks’ quiet re-signing of Red Bryant, one of the most underrated producers in the game, and picking up Jason Jones for one year was a no-lose move. Coples had a monster 2011 season and a solid combine workout. He could play defensive end or rush the passer from the OLB spot. A lot of draftniks have him going in the top 10. He could be a steal at No. 12 for the pass-rush-hungry Seahawks.

 

Mock Draft

Seahawks sip the Matt Flynn Kool-Aid…$26 Million..$10 Guaranteed

 

Former Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn is the Seattle Seahawks’ new quarterback after agreeing to terms today, the team announced.

According to ESPN, it’s a three-year contract worth up to $26 million that includes $10 million guaranteed.

Flynn also visited the Miami Dolphins, who are hosting San Francisco 49ers free agent quarterback Alex Smith today.

Flynn had previously visited the Seahawks.

Rather than use a $14.4 million franchise tag on Flynn, the Packers let him become an unrestricted free agent.

A former seventh-round draft pick from LSU who led the Tigers to a national championship, Flynn set Packers records with six touchdowns and 480 passing yards in a 45-41 win over the Detroit Lions on Jan. 1, 2012.

Lofa finds a new Nest

The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms with former Pro Bowl linebacker Lofa Tatupu

The team announced the deal Saturday. No terms were released.

Tatupu was a second-round pick by Seattle in 2005 and spent six seasons with the Seahawks. He was named to the NFC Pro Bowl team three straight years from 2005-07 and has started all 84 games he’s played in his career.

The 29-year-old was released last summer by Seattle after failing to reach agreement on a restructured deal. He didn’t play in 2011

Seahawks part ways with Trufant

 

The Seattle Seahawks cut former Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Trufant today.

Trufant was due a $7.2 million base salary and carried a $10.13 million salary-cap figure for 2012.

“Out of respect for Marcus and his family, we’ve decided to release him today so that he has an opportunity to explore the full window of unrestricted free agency and the options that go along with it,” Seahawks general manager John Schneider said. “Marcus has done so much for this organization, but because of the changing landscape of the NFL, tough decisions have to be made and this is the correct thing to do at this time.”

Drafted 11th overall, Trufant was scheduled to make an $8.8 million base salary in 2013 with an $11.73 million salary-cap figure in the final year of his contract.

A former Washington State standout, Trufant has struggled with back injuries and finished last season on injured reserve after playing four games.

In nine seasons, Trufant recorded 604 tackles to rank 10th all-time in Seattle history, two sacks, 21 interceptions to rank fifth all-time in Seattle history, two touchdowns on interception returns, 113 passes defensed, four forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.

Trufant was voted to the Pro Bowl after the 2007 season, when he registered a career-high seven interceptions.

Seahawks pay Lynch… $31 Million….$18 Milllion Guaranteed

 

Seattle Seahawks fans might want to consider stocking up on Skittles. Marshawn Lynch is staying put.

The Seahawks’ bulldozing, candy-loving running back signed a four-year contract Sunday night that will keep him in a Seattle uniform for the prime of his NFL career and coming off his finest season.

Seattle announced the move less than 24 hours before the deadline for teams to use the franchise tag and Lynch would have been owed more than $7 million for one season if Seattle used the tag on him. A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that Lynch’s contract is worth $31 million, including $18 million guaranteed. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because terms of the deal were not officially announced.

”We are excited to keep Marshawn as part of what we are building,” Seahawks general manager John Schneider said. ”This is what we were hoping for when we acquired him from Buffalo.”

Lynch rushed for 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns last season and embodied the attitude head coach Pete Carroll wanted the rest of his roster to emulate. Lynch also showed a maturity this season that might have been absent in the past.

That maturity was evident midseason when Seattle was struggling at midseason and Lynch had rushed for more than 80 yards just once. He sat down with assistant head coach Tom Cable to ask what he could do as a back to become more productive.

The result was six 100-yard games over the final nine weeks. In the three games during which Lynch failed to top 100 yards, he rushed for more than 80 twice and had two touchdowns rushing the other time as the Seahawks won five of their final eight games and made a late surge for playoff spot. Lynch was the first running back this season to score a touchdown rushing against San Francisco in Week 16. In the season finale against Arizona, Lynch was held out of the end zone to snap a franchise-record streak of 11 consecutive games with a TD.

By the end of the season, Lynch’s touchdowns at home were being marked with a shower of Skittles – Lynch’s favorite candy – raining down from the stands.

Yet Another…..Mock Draft

 

12. Seattle Seahawks: Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina: Ingram solidified himself as a top-20 pick with a dominant week of Senior Bowl practices. Capable of playing either outside linebacker or defensive end, he’s a pass-rushing force who can cover tight ends in the passing game, too.

Seattle’s got needs at wideout and the local fan base may be pushing for a quarterback here, but some think they go with Ingram, the 6-2, 270 pound scheme versatile defender.
