With the 64th overall pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…offensive tackle Justin Britt out of Missouri.  Britt has the prototypical height, weight, and wingspan you look for in an NFL OT, so he isn’t limited to playing guard in the pros.  He appears to be better in pass protection than he is as  a run blocker, he’s got decent quickness, and he has a […]

With the 40th pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…another trade, this time with the Lions.  In exchange for the 8th pick in the second round and the 6th pick in the fifth round (146th overall), Seattle receives the 13th pick in the second round (45th overall), the 11th pick in the fourth round (111th overall), and the 12th pick in the seventh round […]

With the 32nd pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…a trade with the Vikings.  Yay, woohoo, etc.  Trading out of the first round is not the sexiest move a team can make, but in Seattle’s case it makes a lot of sense, as they had just six picks headed into this year’s draft. In exchange for the 32nd overall pick in the first round, […]

How Heavy Is Run-Heavy?

Before I dive in to the article, I just want to welcome you all to the new and improved Seahawk Addicts!  The folks over at Bloguin have been slaving away on this overhaul to their blog network for months, and the result is a leaner, meaner site designed to load faster and run better than […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/20)

After a couple of days of relative inactivity (at least as far as the news wire is concerned), the Seahawks are making some moves today.  First off, the team has signed offensive lineman Steve Schilling.  Schilling can play both guard and tackle and has the potential to develop into a solid player — the Seahawks […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/17)

The gang is back together, at least in the special teams meeting room.  The Seahawks re-signed kicker Steven Hauschka today, rewarding him for his consistency with a 3 year, $9.15M deal.  The $3.05 average yearly salary makes Hauschka the 11th highest paid kicker in the league — it's a fat chunk of change, sure, but […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/16)

Good afternoon everyone, we have just two quick news items for you so far today.  First off, Henry Melton has left Seattle without a contract and is headed to Dallas.  That doesn't mean he won't still sign with the Seahawks, but it does seem to indicate that he wasn't wowed by their contract offer.  I […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/15)

Zach Miller decided to help Seahawks fans start their morning off right by agreeing to restructure the remaining two years on his contract.  Originally, he was scheduled to earn in 2014 a $4.8M base salary and a $1M roster bonus; add to that a potential $200k workout bonus and $1M to account for his prorated […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/14)

The deluge of free agency news has finally slowed to a trickle, but that doesn't mean there isn't any news to be found.  A big part of what has made Schneider so damned great as Seattle's general has been the phenomenal bargain signings he's made once the initial mad scramble for big name players and […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/13)

The Seahawks decided to mix things up by starting the day with a re-signing instead of a free agent defection.  Backup QB Tarvaris Jackson will be returning for 2014 on a one year, $1.25M contract with another $750k available through incentives (odds are he'll only earn that if he sees significant playing time under center).  […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/12)

The big news this morning is that the Seahawks have officially released Chris Clemons.  After being treated as nothing more than a situational pass rusher in his first five seasons with Washington, Oakland, and Philadelphia, Clemons earned the starting Leo DE gig in Seattle and flourished, notching at least 11 sacks in each of his […]

Free Agency 2014 (3/11)

Instead of putting up a barrage of separate posts, I'll be updating this one as Seahawks-related news rolls in throughout the evening (for a look at the Seahawks cap picture prior to the start of free agency, check out this article).  Aside from yesterday's signings of both DE Michael Bennett (4 years, $28.5 million with […]

The Seahawks’ Free Agency Budget for 2014

Building an NFL team into a legitimate championship contender is a hell of a task.  To begin with you need great players and great coaches, obviously, and you need all of them to work well together.  Bad blood and poor chemistry have spoiled a lot of otherwise stacked teams over the years (like the Seahawks […]

Sidney Rice to Be Released

According to multiple sources, the Seahawks will be releasing WR Sidney Rice sometime in the near future.  The big money contract he signed back in 2011 was pretty much the archetypal high risk/high reward type deal. It was a signing that I defended at the time, and one that I still think was well worth […]
