For the second time in three years, the Seahawks stole the headlines on the first day of free agency, trading Max Unger and a first-round pick to the Saints for Jimmy Graham and a fourth.
Just days after signing his new contract, Marshawn Lynch purportedly found himself in the middle of a street brawl — and wisely extricated himself.
After trading Unger, the Seahawks brought in two offensive linemen, but Shelley Smith signed with Denver and the Hawks let Stefen Wisniewski continue his free-agent tour.
Seattle lost Byron Maxwell, James Carpenter, Malcolm Smith, O’Brien Schofield and Bryan Walters in free agency.
The Hawks offered Maxwell $8 million per year, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Richard Sherman wrote about a whirlwind year, from the Super Bowl win over Denver to the Super Bowl loss against New England.
Schofield, joining Dan Quinn in Atlanta, thanked basically all of Seattle for his two years as a Seahawk.
Kevin Norwood apparently proposed to his Alabama sweetheart.
