Position Listing
Jalston Fowler
News
Fowler signed a reserve/future contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, The Seahawks Wire reports.

Fowler earned a spot on the Titans' 53-man roster to start the 2017 season, but saw his usage drop as the season wore on, leading to his release. The 27-year-old has been on Seattle's practice squad since mid-December and will continue in the team's offseason program.

Chris Carson
News
Carson (ankle/leg) is back to full health and will be ready for Organized Team Activities in May, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

A 2017 seventh-round pick, Carson opened his rookie season as the Seahawks' starting running back, taking 49 carries for 208 yards (4.2 average) and seven catches for 59 yards and a touchdown prior to suffering a broken leg and high-ankle sprain Week 4. There was some hope he'd return from injured reserve late in the season, and while that didn't come to fruition, Carson at least is on track for a normal offseason ahead of his sophomore campaign. He's an early favorite to reprise the lead role, as Seattle hasn't added any new running backs in free agency. The team did retain Mike Davis and pass-catching specialist J.D. McKissic, along with injury-prone 2016 third-round pick C.J. Prosise (ankle). More talent could be coming via the draft.

Quinton Jefferson
News
Jefferson signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Jefferson received a tender earlier this offseason and is now set to spend the 2018 season with Seattle. The 2016 fifth-rounder notched seven tackles and one sack in six games for the Seahawks last year.

Amara Darboh
News
Darboh caught eight of thirteen targets for 71 yards in 16 games for the Seahawks in 2017.

Darboh caught only three passes in three preseason games and similarly struggled to make an offensive impact for Seattle in the regular season. Hopefully a full offseason with the Seahawks will lead to better production in the 23-year-old sophomore season.

C.J. Prosise
News
Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently suggested Prosise (ankle) is still a part of the team's plans, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official website reports. "Look, we need C.J. (Prosise) to be a reliable dude," Schneider said. "He's an extremely talented guy."

A 2016 third-round pick, Prosise has played 11 of a possible 32 games after spending the second half of last season on injured reserve. He did display promise as a rookie when he gained 380 yards on 47 touches (17 catches), including 153 scrimmage yards in a November road win over the Patriots. If nothing else, the Seahawks hope Prosise can stay healthy enough to take advantage of his receiving skills on passing downs, with anything else simply viewed as a bonus. Listed at 225 pounds, he has the requisite size for a three-down role if he can ever stay healthy for more than a few weeks. Schneider didn't provide an update on the ankle injury, but there's a good chance Prosise is approaching full strength, considering there was some thought he might return from IR in December. Of course, he does have a history of taking longer than expected to recover from injuries. The Seattle backfield could be an open competition once again.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Paul Dawson
News
Dawson re-signed with the Seahawks on Monday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.

Dawson appeared in just three games during his first season with Seattle last season. It's unlikely the TCU product will take on any substantial role in 2018, but a reserve spot at outside linebacker seems probable at the moment.

D.J. Alexander
News
Alexander has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rams after suffering a concussion, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

With Alexander and linebacker K.J. Wright (concussion) out, Terence Garvin and Kache Palacio are in line to see increased snaps for the Seahawks defense.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
K.J. Wright
News
Wright had 108 tackles (71 solo) and an interception in 15 games with the Seahawks in 2017.

Wright turned in a sackless season for the first time in his career, but it was his fourth consecutive season with over 100 tackles. The 28-year-old is entering the final season of his current contract and could potentially be cut as he carries a manageable dead cap hit if released, but Seattle is likely to want Wright to return given his consistent performance alongside Bobby Wagner.

Delano Hill
News
Hill (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Hill is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. He'll likely be used mainly as a special teams contributor.

Tanner McEvoy
News
McEvoy (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

McEvoy will be held out for the first time of the campaign, a decision that was likely on the horizon after he played a season-low six offensive snaps in the Week 16 loss to the Cowboys. Amara Darboh and David Moore will dress as the Seahawks' reserve wideouts behind starters Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett.

Josh Forrest
News
Forrest (knee) reached an injury settlement with the Rams on Saturday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Forrest is now free to sign elsewhere if he is healthy enough to play. The 25-year-old was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last year as well, but it's unclear how severe the injury is this time around.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Noble Nwachukwu
No Updates
Dewey McDonald
News
McDonald (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

McDonald is believed to have torn his ACL last Sunday against the Titans, likely ending his season. The Seahawks claimed Justin March-Lillard off waivers in a corresponding move.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kam Chancellor
News
Head coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle on Tuesday that Chancellor (neck) may not play again. "Cliff [Avril] and Kam [Chancellor] are going to have a hard time playing football again," Carroll said. "The jury is not out on that yet."

Chancellor didn't take another snap after injuring his neck Week 10. The strong safety opted to avoid surgery on the region with the hope rehab will get him back into playing shape. However, Carroll's comments sung an ominous tone with three years remaining on Chancellor's contract. Expect Chancellor and the Seahawks to explore every option at his disposal in the coming months.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Doug Baldwin
News
The connection between Baldwin and Russell Wilson could be the key component of the Seahawks offense in 2017 due to the free-agent departures of Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson, Andy Patton of USA Today reports.

In the post-Marshawn Lynch era in Seattle, the onus of the offense has fallen on Wilson, who has averaged 256 passing yards per game the last two years. The receiving corps experienced upheaval this offseason, exchanging Graham, Richardson and Luke Willson for Jaron Brown and Ed Dickson. Like Wilson, who hasn't missed a contest in his six-year career, Baldwin is an ironman in his own right, starting 88 consecutive regular-season outings. Baldwin particularly has been productive the past three campaigns, ranking second in the entire NFL in TD receptions (29), eighth in catches (247), ninth in receiving yards (3,188) and 12th in targets (344). Due to his rapport with Wilson, Baldwin is a great bet to surpass his career-best mark of 125 targets from 2016.

Nick Vannett
News
Vannett is slated for a larger role in the Seahawks offense in 2018, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

The TE room in Seattle was a revolving door this offseason, with free agents Jimmy Graham (to Green Bay) and Luke Willson (to Detroit) moving on and Ed Dickson entering the mix. Known for his blocking ability, Dickson has averaged 1.4 catches per game during his eight-year career, so he isn't a great candidate to fill the void left behind by Graham and Willson. Among the remaining tight ends on the roster, Vannett has built a rapport with Russell Wilson, however minuscule, in two campaigns with the Seahawks. Increasing his share of the offensive snaps from 7.9 percent on 2016 to 26 percent last season, Vannett has corralled 15 of 19 passes for 156 yards (8.2 YPT) and one touchdown since he was selected in the third round two years ago.

Cyril Grayson
News
Grayson and the Seahawks agreed to a reserve/future deal Tuesday.

Grayson spent his rookie season on the Seahawks' practice squad. He figured to have some work ahead of him when the team picked him up, as he had not played organized football since his senior year of high school in 2011. However, he was a seven-time All-American and four-time national champion as a member of the LSU track team, so the athletic ability is still there. It remains to be seen if he has done enough work to earn a role with the team in 2018.

Cliff Avril
News
Avril (neck) told Steve Wyche of NFL Network on Monday that he plans to continue his playing career following November disc surgery. "I believe so," Avril said, when asked if he thinks he'll play football again. "Right now it's all about recovery for me. I had surgery. It's a long process, it's a long journey. When I get to the end of that, then I'll figure out what's next."

Avril required the season-ending procedure after he took a heel to the chin from the Colts' Jacoby Brissett in Week 4, resulting in the defensive end briefly losing feeling in his arms. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged that Avril's quality of life could be affected if he continues playing through the neck injury, but it appears the veteran is willing to accept the risk. Avril, who tallied a career-best 11.5 sacks in 2016, is due a base salary of $7 million in 2018, but the Seahawks may want to ensure he's fully healthy before keeping him on the roster heading into next season.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Tedric Thompson
News
The Seahawks selected Thompson in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 111th overall.

Thompson is less athletic than most players the Seahawks target, but he earned a high grade from them anyway thanks to his production. Thompson played safety for a Colorado pass defense that dominated in 2016, and Thompson picked off seven passes in the process. He and Delano Hill give Seattle options at safety.

Jason Myers
News
The Seahawks signed Myers to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Blair Walsh experiment didn't go as planned in 2017, with the most-recent faux pas a missed 48-yard field goal that would have put the Seahawks ahead by one point with less than a minute remaining Week 17 against the Cardinals. Overall, Walsh hit 72.4 percent of his field goals (21 of 29) on the season, which ranked worst in the NFL for any kicker with as many attempts. Myers' career mark is modestly better at 81 percent, but he'll be given the first shot to lock down the place-kicking gig in Seattle with Walsh an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Isaiah Battle
News
Battle was waived by the Seahawks on Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The prospect of an offensive lineman being the odd man left out became rather obvious once Seattle made the trade for veteran offensive lineman Duane Brown. Unfortunately for Battle, he was victim of the deal.

Barkevious Mingo
News
Mingo likely will play strong-side linebacker in Seattle's 4-3 base defense, while serving as an edge rusher on passing downs, ESPN.com's Brady Henderson reports.

The sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, Mingo enjoyed the best season of his career last year in Indianapolis, piling up 47 tackles, two sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 16 games. He often was asked to drop into coverage on passing downs, but the Seahawks plan to give him more opportunities to get after the quarterback. General manager John Schneider said Mingo was the team's top priority among external free agents, perhaps hinting at a role similar to the one Bruce Irvin occupied from 2013 to 2015. Irvin had 115 tackles, 14 sacks and three interceptions in 42 regular-season games during that stretch, with his versatility allowing him to stay on the field alongside fellow edge rushers Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril (neck). Mingo won't have quite as much competition for snaps, potentially making him a huge bargain on a two-year, $6.8 million contract.

Ed Dickson
News
Dickson is joining the Seahawks on a three-year contract that has a maximum value of $14 million, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

With Jimmy Graham off to Green Bay and Luke Willson still unsigned, the Seahawks need to replace their top two tight ends from the past three seasons. Dickson primarily served as a blocker while playing all 64 regular-season games during his four-year stint in Carolina, but he did show a bit of receiving ability last season when Greg Olsen missed nine games with a foot injury, memorably exploding for 175 yards Week 5 in Detroit. Dickson nonetheless finished the year with only 30 catches for 437 yards and one touchdown on 47 targets (9.3 YPT). He'll be 31 in July and hasn't topped 30 catches or two touchdowns in a season since posting a 54-528-5 receiving line (on 89 targets) for the Ravens in 2011. The Seahawks still have work to do at tight end, where lead-footed Nick Vannett (back) and converted quarterback Tyrone Swoopes are the only other players on the roster at the position.

Christian French
No Updates
Shamar Stephen
News
Stephen is expected to start at defensive tackle in 2018, Bryan Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Although Stephen is still rehabbing a meniscus injury he suffered in the divisional round of the playoffs, he's in line to jump Nazair Jones (ankle) in the depth chart and take over as a starter. A 2014 seventh-round pick, Stephen signed with the Seahawks on March 24 after a season that he accrued 28 tackles (nine solo) in 15 games. Stephen hasn't worked in a full-time starter's role in his career, so it'll be interesting to see what how far his potential stretches.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Maurice Alexander
News
Alexander signed a contract with the Seahawks on Friday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Alexander was released by the Rams in early October and recorded 20 tackles (13 solo) in four games. The 27-year-old started 14 games for the Rams in 2016 and could figure into the mix at safety for Seattle in 2018 with Kam Chancellor career in limbo from a neck injury and Earl Thomas subject to continued trade rumors.

Ethan Pocic
News
Pocic (knee) will not return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Pocic exited with the injury earlier in the game and was originally designated questionable to return. Rookie Jordan Roos should continue in his stead at right guard for Seattle.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
J.D. McKissic
News
McKissic signed his exclusive-rights free agent tender, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

McKissic emerged as a useful pass-catching back in 2017, taking 46 carries for 187 yards and hauling in 34 of 46 targets for 266 yards, with three touchdowns on 80 touches. The 2016 undrafted free agent will compete for passing-down work with injury-prone C.J. Prosise (ankle), who has made just 11 appearances through two seasons. Both players have backgrounds as college wideouts, but Prosise fits the typical size profile for NFL backs, while McKissic checks in around 195 pounds. Chris Carson and Mike Davis are the other names on the Seattle depth chart at running back heading into the NFL draft.

Dontae Johnson
News
Johnson will sign with the Seahawks, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reports.

Johnson started all 16 games for San Francisco in 2017, racking up 77 tackles, seven pass breakups and a pick-six along the way. He'll likely fill the empty spot in the starting lineup vacated by cornerback Richard Sherman, who signed with the 49ers last month.

Oday Aboushi
News
Aboushi (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged several days earlier that Aboushi's season was over, but the team waited until after Sunday's loss to the Jaguars to make it official. With Aboushi shut down, Ethan Pocic and Luke Joeckel are expected to serve as Seattle's starting guards for its final three regular-season contests and for the duration of the team's potential postseason run.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Tom Johnson
News
Johnson signed a one-year, $2.7 million contract with the Seahawks on Friday, Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reports.

Seattle is known to be in the market for defensive linemen and so far it seems the team is looking to save money at the position. Johnson comes over from Minnesota after making 62 regular-season starts for the Vikings over the past four seasons, racking up 107 tackles and 16 sacks in the process. He doesn't have a lot of competition for a starting spot as the Seahawks' roster currently stands considering only Jarran Reed and Nazair Jones (ankle) are the only other defensive tackles under contract for 2018.

Frank Clark
News
Clark had 32 tackles (19 solo), nine sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games for the Seahawks in 2017.

Clark logged 12 starts and saw an increased role once Cliff Avril (neck) was lost for the season in Week 4. The 24-year-old should see a similar role for the Seahawks in 2018 as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

Duane Brown
News
Brown (ankle) was a full participant at Friday's practice and enters the weekend without an injury designation, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.

Brown has dealt with a nagging ankle injury since early November, but the issue hasn't been serious enough to keep him sidelined.

Neiko Thorpe
News
Thorpe (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Colts.

Thorpe has been dealing with an ankle injury since being carted off the field in Week 2. His absence will affect the Seahawks' depth at cornerback, with Justin Coleman in line to see additional snaps behind starter Richard Sherman.

Luke Joeckel
News
Joeckel (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Joeckel only managed one limited practice this week while contending with the foot injury, but with the Seahawks' playoff hopes on the line in Week 17, he'll be able to tough it out. He should fill his normal starting role at left guard.

David Moore
News
The Seahawks signed Moore to a contract Wednesday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Seattle drafted Moore in the seventh round of this year's draft, but he didn't survive final roster cuts ahead of the season opener. The six-foot-two wideout -- who was clocked running a 4.43 40-yard dash -- adds a nice blend of size and speed to the Seahawks' receiving corps, but he could struggle to see many snaps on offense.

Stephen Morris
News
Morris is signing with Seattle, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Released by Indianapolis earlier in the week, Morris didn't take long to find a new home. He'll be the only quarterback behind Russell Wilson on the depth chart, though Seattle figures to address that situation in the coming weeks, considering Morris went undrafted in 2014 and has yet to take a snap in an NFL regular-season game. His best-case scenario is a shot to compete for the backup job during training camp.

Shaquill Griffin
News
Griffin posted 59 tackles, one sack, 15 pass breakups and one interception through 15 games in his 2017 rookie season.

Griffin was the Seahawks' top corner after Richard Sherman (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve. He answered the call exceptionally, helping stabilize the team's short-handed secondary to a degree. Given his success this season, the UCF product will likely be given every opportunity to open 2018 as the No. 2 corner opposite Sherman.

Alex Carter
News
Carter signed a contract with the Lions on Sunday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Twenty months after being drafted in the third round by the Lions, Carter has finally been promoted from the practice squad and will serve in a depth role for Monday's game against the Cowboys with starter Darius Slay (hamstring) likely sidelined.

Tyler Lockett
News
Lockett had an inconsistent and ultimately disappointing season, finishing with 45 receptions for 555 yards and two touchdowns.

Lockett had less than 40 yards in 12 games, finishing with two games of double-digit fantasy points in non-PPR leagues. His 12.3 yards per catch and 7.8 yards per target are both career lows, and after six TD receptions as a rookie, he's totaled three the last two years. Lockett's future with the Seahawks seemingly hinges on whether the team re-signs free agent Paul Richardson. Both speedsters have similar skill sets, and Richardson overtook the starting job as the No. 2 receiver this year, playing 77 percent of snaps to Lockett's 65 percent. Richardson, though, was inconsistent as well, and Lockett has value as a kick returner, for which he's made two Pro Bowls. If the team re-signs Richardson, Lockett likely will see a similar role next season, which probably would be his last in Seattle. If the Seahawks pass on Richardson, Lockett figures to get more playing time next season and a long-term deal.

Eddie Lacy
News
Lacy's 2.59 yards per carry was the lowest in the league this season among players with at least 50 rushing attempts, as he was arguably the NFL's worst running back.

Lacy, who signed an incentive-laden one-year deal, was a colossal bust for the Seahawks. Despite the team's bare cupboard at running back, he didn't play in seven games, a healthy scratch in all but one of the five games he was inactive. The Seahawks might as well have released him as he had one carry in December. He had only four runs longer than 10 yards among his 69 rushes and didn't score for the second consecutive season. Not only won't he be back with the Seahawks, his career could be over.

Sebastian Janikowski
News
The Seahawks signed Janikowski to a one-year contract Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Raiders' all-time leading scorer by a wide margin, Janikowski's tenure with the team came to an abrupt halt last season, when a contract dispute was followed by a back injury that kept him on IR all year. He was fairly efficient in the three previous seasons, connecting on at least 80 percent of his field-goal attempts on each occasion. Moreover, he nailed 75 of 78 extra-point tries from the longer distance introduced in 2015. Upon his arrival in Seattle, Janikowski will compete with Jason Myers for the place-kicking job.

Mike Davis
News
Davis agreed to a one-year deal with the Seahawks on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Just over a week after he was let go by the Seahawks, Davis will return to the organization that helped him to the best season of his three-year NFL career. Multiple injuries in the Seattle backfield allowed Davis to elevate to a key role, and he carried the ball 62 times for 222 yards (3.6 YPC) during the final five games of the season, while also contributing on the pass-catching end. Looking ahead to the 2018 campaign, both Chris Carson (ankle) and C.J. Prosise (ankle) are still in the mix, but they are both dealing with injuries, though both are believed to be ready for training camp. J.D. McKissic could have a role as a pass-catcher as well, so there will be plenty of competition for Davis in his age-26 season.

Blair Walsh
News
Walsh was 21 of 29 on field-goal attempts and 37 for 38 on extra-points attempts for the Seahawks in 2017.

Walsh's longest field goal of the season was 49 yards, and he finished the season on a sour note with a missed 48-yard field goal in the final minute of the Week 17 loss to the Cardinals. The Seahawks have already signed former-Jaguar Jason Myers to a reserve\future contract as Walsh is set to hit free agency, with his tenure in Seattle likely over.

Willie Beavers
News
Beavers was waived by the Patriots on Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Beavers has struggled to make a strong impression with New England. There's a chance he'll land elsewhere, though.

Tyrone Swoopes
News
Swoopes was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Swoopes has been on the team's practice squad since being waived at roster cutdowns in September. The 23-year-old could see some offensive snaps Sunday since tight ends Luke Willson (ankle) and Nick Vannett (back) are both listed as questionable.

Russell Wilson
News
Wilson led the NFL and tied a team record with 34 touchdown passes in 2017, but it was partly a result of an inept running game as he posted career lows in completion percentage (61.3) and yards per attempt (7.2).

Wilson threw 15 touchdown passes inside the 10-yard line (second overall) as the Seahawks passed on 64.3 percent of their inside-the-10 plays (also second), largely because they couldn't run the ball. Seattle running backs rushed 17 times inside the 10 for minus-11 yards -- the fewest in the NFL since 1991 -- and failed to score one touchdown. The Seahawks' two rushing TDs inside the 10 came from Wilson, who accounted for all but one of the team's offensive touchdowns. The running game's ineffectiveness was such that Wilson became the fifth quarterback since 1970 to lead his team in rushing (586 yards). The ground attack was partly a victim of another terrible Seattle offensive line, as was Wilson, who was sacked 43 times, becoming the third quarterback ever with five consecutive seasons of 40-plus sacks. Unless the Seahawks upgrade the offensive line substantially this offseason, expect Wilson to match former Cardinal Neil Lomax's dubious record of being brought down more than 40 teams in six consecutive seasons (1983-88).

Tre Madden
News
Madden (calf) returned to practice Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Madden has resided on injured reserve since early November and isn't eligible to play Sunday against the Cardinals, but it appears the Seahawks will make him one of two players designated to return from IR this season. If Seattle qualifies for the playoffs and the fullback checks out fine during his subsequent practices, Madden could suit up for a potential wild-card round matchup and any postseason contests that might follow.

Injury
Calf - Questionable for the start of training camp
Branden Jackson
News
Jackson was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Jackson's promotion is no surprise as the Seahawks defensive line was looking extraordinarily thin with Cliff Avril (neck) and Quinton Jefferson (hand) both looking at prolonged absences. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of linebacker Justin March-Lillard, and will likely play a similar role to Marcus Smith as a rotational defensive end.

Austin Davis
News
Davis is re-signing with the Seahawks for the veteran's minimum, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Davis outplayed Trevone Boykin last preseason and spent all of the regular season serving as Russell Wilson's top backup. While the Seahawks are expected to look into alternatives, including Colin Kaepernick, it isn't out of the question that Davis retains the role for another year.

Michael Wilhoite
News
Wilhoite had 30 tackles (21 solo) and an interception in 14 games with the Seahawks in 2017.

Wilhoite started nine games for the Seahawks and posted the lowest tackle total since his rookie season, in which he played only five games. The 31-year-old will enter the 2018 season as a an unrestricted free agent.

Jon Ryan
No Updates
Germain Ifedi
News
Ifedi (finger) was a full participant at Tuesday's walk-through, John Doyle of the Seahawks' official website reports.

The Seahawks held Ifedi out of Monday's walk-through, but it appears they were just being cautious. He appears on track to play Thursday against the Cardinals assuming he avoids a setback.

Jordan Simone
News
Simone has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL and will miss the 2017 season, Braulio Perez of 12up.com reports.

Simone suffered the injury while attempting to make a tackle on special teams during the Seahawks' preseason opener Sunday against the Chargers. This marks the second torn ACL of his career, as the Arizona State product suffered the same injury during his senior season of college in 2015.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Justin Britt
News
The Seahawks opted to pick up Britt's team option that extends through the 2020 season, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

The 26-year-old has started every game that he has been active for Seattle since the team drafted him back in 2014. Britt appears to be the guy up front for Russell Wilson and this Seahawks bunch for the foreseeable future.

Dion Jordan
News
Jordan signed a one-year, $2 million restricted free agent tender with the Seahawks on Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.

Jordan's tender was worth a first-round pick, meaning that any team that signed him would have had to give up a first round pick in order to pry him away from Seattle. The former third-overall pick recorded 18 tackles, including four sacks, in just five games with the Seahawks in 2017. He'll look to get his career back on track after being forced to sit out the 2015 and 2016 campaigns. He hasn't played a full season since his rookie year in 2013, but if he manages to stay on the field he could start to flash the talent that made him such a high draft pick years ago.

Malik McDowell
News
McDowell (concussion) is expected to be released in the near future, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

McDowell still hasn't received medical clearance from the concussion he suffered in an off-the-field incident last summer. While it appears the Seahawks have given up on their 2017 second-round pick, it's possible another team could take a chance on the former Michigan State standout.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Justin Coleman
News
Coleman signed his second-round tender Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Coleman will remain in Seattle, where he recorded 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and two interceptions last season. The 25-year-old could see an even larger role in the Seahawks' defense next season, given the departure of Richard Sherman.

Akeem King
News
King signed a contract with the Seahawks on Friday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

King was a member of Seattle's practice squad in 2017 and was placed on practice squad-injured reserve in November with an undisclosed injury.

Joey Hunt
News
Hunt was promoted from the practice squad to the Seahawks' active roster Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Hunt spent nine games on the Seahawks' active roster last season, including one start. Expect the 2016 sixth-round selection to back up Justin Britt for the remainder of the season.

Tyler Ott

Jeremy Lane
News
Lane pleaded guilty Monday to an revised charge of reckless driving for an arrest in King County, Wash. on the morning of Sunday, Jan. 14, KOMONews.com reports.

Initially charged with DUI, Lane's BAC of 0.039 was below the state's legal limit of 0.08, hence the reason for the reduced charge. While he awaits a sentencing hearing on May 4, the cornerback will continue his search for new home after his release from the Seahawks in early March. Lane produced in an expanded role the last two seasons, compiling 80 tackles (57 solo) in 29 games.

Jordan Roos
No Updates
Nazair Jones
News
Jones (ankle) was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks on Saturday.

Jones had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, so this move simply ensures Jones' absence for the playoffs, should Seattle earn a wild-card berth. The 23-year-old finishes his rookie season with 19 total tackles, two sacks and an interception.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Byron Maxwell
News
Maxwell recorded 46 tackles, seven pass breakups, one interception and two forced fumbles in nine 2017 games.

Maxwell played two games for the Dolphins and seven games for the Seahawks, posting the most tackles per game of his career. If Richard Sherman (Achilles) returns to full speed by the start of the 2018 season, Maxwell and Justin Coleman will battle for the No. 3 corner role.

George Fant
News
Fant (knee) is shooting for a return in training camp, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Fant was placed on injured reserve just prior to Week 1 of the 2017 season due to an ACL tear. The injury usually requires about a year to recover from, making training camp a typical pace for his recovery. He'll be looking to reestablish himself as the starting left tackle for Seattle in 2018.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jaron Brown
News
Brown's two-year contract with Seattle has a base value of $5.5 million and includes $2.75 million fully guaranteed, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

The deal sounds about right for a useful special-teams player who failed to impress when tasked with a key role on offense over his past five years with the Cardinals. Brown still set career highs across the board last season with 31 catches for 477 yards and four touchdowns on 69 targets (6.9 yards per target), but he required 819 offensive snaps (51.2 per game) to get there. The Seahawks probably prefer to slot him in fourth or fifth on the wideout depth chart, hoping that Amara Darboh, Marcus Johnson or a draft pick can earn a job alongside Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett in three-wideout formations.

Tyrus Thompson
News
Thompson (undisclosed) reverted to injured reserve after being waived/injured, per the official NFL transaction log.

As expected, Thompson cleared waivers and landed on the team's IR. He will now remain there for the 2017 season unless he and the Seahawks can reach an injury settlement.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bobby Wagner
News
Wagner will not participate in the Pro Bowl due to a lingering hamstring injury he dealt with throughout the second half of the season, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Although he was bothered by the hamstring injury, Wagner still managed to play in every contest for the Seahawks, totaling 133 tackles on the season. It appears to be more of a safety precaution for the veteran linebacker, who will focus on getting 100 percent healthy heading into offseason workouts.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
D.J. Fluker
News
Fluker has recovered from the toe injury that landed him on injured reserve last season, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Fluker, who played on a one-year contract with the Giants last season, was placed on IR in late November with an undisclosed toe injury. Now back to full health, he's expected to start at right guard for the Seahawks in 2018.

Rees Odhiambo
News
Odhiambo will require surgery to repair multiple broken and dislocated fingers on both hands and was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 25-year-old probably could have continued to play through the injuries if needed, but the recent acquisition of veteran tackle Duane Brown lessens the need for his services. Odhiambo started the Seahawks' first seven games of the season at left tackle and often struggled to protect quarterback Russell Wilson's blind side.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bradley McDougald
News
McDougald will stay in Seattle on a three-year, $13.95 million contract, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

McDougald had 75 or more tackles each of the last three seasons, despite making only nine starts among his 16 games in 2017. He had a limited role in the first half of the season, eventually taking over as the starter at strong safety after Kam Chancellor suffered a career-threatening neck injury. The Seahawks hope Chancellor can return for 2018, but if not, McDougald is a competent replacement. The 27-year-old piled up 52 tackles in seven games (7.4 average) after Chancellor went down for the year.

Marcus Johnson
News
The Eagles agreed Wednesday to trade Johnson and a future fifth-round draft pick to the Seahawks in exchange for defensive end Michael Bennett and a future seventh-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Undrafted in 2016, Johnson spent part of his rookie season on the Eagles' practice squad and was active for 10 games in 2017. The speedy wideout caught only five passes across 146 offensive snaps last season, but he may have a larger opportunity in Seattle, where the team seemingly is prepared to let Paul Richardson walk in free agency. The trade won't become official until March 14 when the new league year opens. Once that happens, Johnson could enter the mix for the third or fourth wideout spot, depending on the Seahawks' other moves this offseason.

Jarran Reed
News
Reed is in line to start at defensive tackle for the Seahawks in 2018, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Reed reached 45 tackles (23 solo) and 1.5 sacks in his second season. When he was healthy, Reed averaged 44 defensive snaps per game, but this rate rose to 53 when Nazair Jones suffered an ankle injury. If Reed keeps up these snap counts, he'll be in good position to eclipse the 50-tackle mark in 2018.

DeAndre Elliott
News
Elliott (leg) was placed on IR Saturday.

In his absence, Neiko Thorpe is expected to pick up the slack. Elliott will miss all of the 2017 regular season following his placement onto IR.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Marcus Smith
News
Smith announced on his Twitter account that he played with a torn ligament in his foot last season.

Smith played through the injury, logging 15 tackles (nine solo), 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a pass defensed in 14 games. The Seahawks have spent the offseason retooling their defensive line, and Smith could play an expanded role next year if he can return to full strength.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Earl Thomas
News
Per general manager John Schneider, Thomas will not hold out in 2018 even if he doesn't have a new contract, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Thomas had 88 tackles, seven pass breakups and two picks in 2017, and the Seahawks' secondary is already shaky since they released CB Richard Sherman. However, contract talks between Thomas and the Seahawks halted in early March, and it's still unclear if negotiations will fire back up. Just because Thomas won't hold out doesn't mean he'll be on the team in 2018, since he could still be traded if a deal isn't made.

Mike Tyson
News
Tyson was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Tyson was waived by the Seahawks in early September and has since been a member of the team's practice squad. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of safety Kam Chancellor (neck), who was finally placed on injured reserve. Tyson should serve as a depth option in the Seahawks' injury-depleted secondary.
