Pete Carroll wants his guys to use this offseason to look at the game from the other side.
Russell Okung still plans to represent himself in contract talks.
Bruce Irvin said he would take up to $5 million less to return to Seattle. That probably means $1 million/year less. He figures to get an offer of at least $7 million/year from some team and the Hawks probably could not offer him more than $5 million.
Jermaine Kearse would love to come back, and Carroll would love to have him back. Of course, the price has to be right for both.
Regarding Marshawn Lynch, Carroll said, “I don’t know how that’s going to go.” But everyone expects Lynch to go.
The Seahawks reportedly would like to keep Lynch at a reduced rate — which won’t happen.
Jimmy Graham is “doing some cool, innovative things” as he rehabs from a torn patellar tendon. Carroll had no timeline on his recovery, which typically takes 6-8 months.
Carroll also had no comment on his contract situation, other than to say, “I’m in great shape.” Expect his deal to be extended past 2016 though.
The Rams and Chargers reportedly would like to lure Carroll back to L.A. next year. It would be very surprising if he left Seattle.
Four Seahawks were honored by PFWA.
Thomas Rawls is going back to his hometown of Flint, Mich., to do what he can to help with the water crisis.
