  • Seahawks' Mychal Kendricks: Future in Seattle murky

    Kendricks (lower leg) has had his federal court sentencing date moved from Jan. 25 to April 4, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

    Kendricks and fellow middle linebacker K.J. Wright are both set to become free agents unless they re-sign with Seattle before March 13. It appears that the Seahawks will be required to address the situation before officially knowing whether Kendricks, who pleaded guilty to insider trading and is now scheduled to be sentenced in early April, will be available for 2019 and beyond. He played four games with Seattle in 2018, missing time due to a suspension and a season-ending fractured fibula. The 28-year-old looked the part of a starter while on the field, accumulating 19 tackles, two sacks and one pass defended. Despite Kendricks' solid play, it's reasonable to speculate that the ambiguity surrounding his future availability could supply the Seahawks with some incentive to prioritize re-signing Wright.

  • Seahawks' Paxton Lynch: Inks deal with Seattle

    The Seahawks signed Lynch on Thursday, Sports Radio KJR reports.

    The Broncos traded up to pluck Lynch in the first round of the 2016 draft, but he was stuck behind Trevor Siemian for most of his rookie season and both Siemian and Brock Osweiler in 2017. Lynch made five appearances (four starts) during those two years, completing 61.7 percent of his passes for 792 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. After Case Keenum arrived in Denver last offseason, Lynch was unable to keep a job by Week 1 and remained out of football in 2018. Upon joining the Seahawks, Lynch will battle Brett Hundley for slotting at quarterback behind Russell Wilson.

  • Seahawks' Nazair Jones: Takes step back in 2018

    Jones made seven tackles (two solo) in nine games this season.

    Jones had an opportunity to rise up the depth chart into a starting role, but he averaged just 14.6 defensive snaps per game after being beaten out by trade acquisition Shamar Stephen and undrafted rookie Poona Ford. Stephen could walk in free agency, but Ford is expected to bump into the starter role in 2019, likely leaving Jones as a backup again.

  • Seahawks' C.J. Prosise: Slated for healthy offseason

    Coach Pete Carroll expects Prosise (abdomen) to be fully healthy by the start of Seattle's offseason training program April 15, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. "C.J. really needed the surgery that he had," Carroll said. "It was a little more extended than we thought, but he'll be back from that. That's about an eight-week recovery or something like that so he'll be fine."

    Prosise has appeared in16 of a possible 48 regular-season games since the Seahawks tabbed him with a third-round draft selection in 2016. While the Seahawks haven't completely given up on him, it's possible Prosise could face an uphill battle for a roster spot in 2019 given his lack of reliability. A former wide receiver, the hope is that Prosise can be effectively utilized as a receiving option out of the backfield who could complement a lead runner like Chris Carson or Rashaad Penny.

  • Seahawks' Sam Ficken: Inks deal with Seattle

    The Seahawks signed Ficken to a reserve/future contract on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Ficken was waived by the Rams in early October after missing two of three field-goal attempts as a temporary starter for the team, and he'll now compete for a role with the Seahawks. Incumbent starter and 40-year-old veteran Sebastian Janikowski is set to become a free agent this offseason.
