Is B.J. Finney the precursor to the Seahawks signing two stud pass rushers?
They reportedly will sign the versatile lineman, who can play center, to a two-year deal worth $8 million (and up to $9.5 million). And that could be the way they bump expensive Justin Britt, which would save them a net $5 million in cap space on the exchange so they could sign Jadeveon Clowney and another pass rusher (Everson Griffen or Devon Kennard?).
Adrian Clayborn’s six-sack performance for Atlanta in a 27-7 win over Dallas last week has a lot of Seahawks fans crossing their fingers that Duane Brown can play Monday.
Clayborn’s six were one off the record set by Derrick Thomas in 1990 — against Seattle. But do you remember how that game turned out? Maybe Russell Wilson can channel a little Dave Krieg, if needed:
Pete Carroll said Luke Joeckel is a left tackle who can play left guard, and the coach said he hopes Joeckel plays well enough to get a long-term deal from the Seahawks next offseason.
Davis Hsu looked at a few games from last season, before Joeckel suffered an ACL injury, and came up with a bit of a pro scouting report on the No. 2 pick in the 2013 draft:
Here are some of Eddie Lacy’s runs from the NFC title game in January 2015 — the game in which the Seahawks rallied to beat Lacy and the Packers in overtime.

Just a little something to get you excited about Marshawn Lynch’s return for the playoffs. It’s a simulcast of the Beast Quake vs. the Saints in January 2011 and the Desert Storm vs. the Cardinals last season:
