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:
Marshawn Lynch won’t be seen on the field tonight, but we sure have been seeing a lot of him on TV recently as he takes advantage of his newfound commercial appeal.
As he misses a game for the first time since 2011 — and just the second time in his five years with the Seahawks — we thought we would recap his latest commercial ventures so you didn’t miss him too much.
First, from August, there was the Skittles infomercial in which “Big Daddy” and Skittles got engaged.
