Asked about Michael Bennett and Kam Chancellor, Pete Carroll said, “Really, the guys who are under contract can’t be the first-priority guys right now, in any order. We are really digging in, trying to keep our team together. And that will always be the way we go about it. We love Kam and Mike … and we are going to do all we can to make sure they can stay with us.”
Hiring Doug Hendrickson shows Bennett’s Lynch-like strategy.
John Schneider talked about Marshawn Lynch and other topics.
Lynch is headed to Egypt for American Football Without Barriers — a group co-created by former Seahawk Breno Giacomini.
The offensive line is a major point of emphasis this offseason, although Carroll and Schneider don’t seem to concerned.
Russell Okung says, “It’s very possible that I could stay here. But I know my value, and I’m not going to settle for anything less than that.”
Stanford guard Joshua Garnett would love to come back home to Washington to play for the Seahawks. (He would be a solid pick in the second or third round.)
This anecdote flashes back to 2010 to show how Earl Thomas embodies the Seahawks’ mentality.
The Seahawks had a league-low $11,587 left under the salary cap after last season.
The Hawks are in the middle of the league in cap space and flexibility this year.
The market for Ahtyba Rubin is confirmed: About $4 million a year.
In no-duh news, the Seahawks are talking to Carroll about an extension.
The Seahawks have eight picks in 2017 — and are likely to add three or four more via comps.
Derrick Coleman might be smart to stop driving — he got a speeding ticket Sunday.
