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.
A seventh-round pick last year, Carson entered his rookie campaign with the lead job, then suffered a broken leg and severe ankle sprain in Week 4. He bounced back healthy for the start of the offseason program, but it wasn't enough to stop the Seahawks from using the 27th overall pick on Rashaad Penny. While it sounds as if Carson won't go down without a fight, he'll likely be the underdog if it comes down to a camp/preseason position battle.
Jefferson received his tender earlier this offseason and is now set to remain in Seattle in 2018. The 2016 fifth-round pick notched seven tackles and one sack in six games for the Seahawks a season ago.
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.
Prosise reportedly has been active on the field during all OTA sessions open to the media this spring, which seems to confirm that the 2016 third-rounder is truly recovered from the nagging ankle injury that limited him to just five games last year. In total, Prosise has missed 21 out of 32 games through two professional seasons, as before 2017's ankle dilemma the Notre Dame product missed 10 games his rookie year with shoulder and wrist issues. This frustrating lack of durability has significantly disrupted Prosise's ability to take control of the Seahawks backfield and he now finds himself approaching the 2018 campaign as nothing more than the No. 3 or 4 option behind Rashaad Penny, Chris Carson and possibly Mike Davis. Prosise, a converted wideout who switched to RB during his last year in college, likely needs to impress as a passing-down option in order to stick around in Seattle.
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.
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.
Hill is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. He'll likely be used mainly as a special teams contributor.
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.
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.
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.
Chancellor's 2017 campaign ended abruptly Week 10, when he sustained an unspecified neck injury and landed on injured reserve. In a press conference after the season, coach Pete Carroll revealed that Chancellor was in danger of not playing again. However, Chancellor threw a wrench into that line of thinking in February, stating he'll suit up again if he gains medical clearance. The crossroads for his career presumably will arrive early in the summer, but the Seahawks likely are inclined to address the situation with a draft pick later this week.
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.
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.
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.
Reynolds was able to get more looks during practice since top wideout Doug Baldwin was given a day of rest. The 23-year-old receiver hasn't suited up for a game since being picked by Baltimore in the sixth round of the 2016 draft. It was the first day of minicamp, so it's too early to make predictions on where Reynolds could fit in, but Carroll said he'll be given a good shot. With Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Brandon Marshall, and Jaron Brown looking like locks for the top spots, however, it's likely Reynolds won't rise past a depth role.
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.
It was clear that snagging a starting gig wouldn't be easy for Myers after the Seahawks pegged a $600,000 signing bonus onto veteran kicker Sebastian Janikowski's one-year deal. That sum of cash rivals Myers' entire contract ($705,000 for one season). Therefore, Myers has so much more to prove than Janikowski, and this battle looks to drag out through preseason.
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.
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.
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.
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) on 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 in which he accrued 28 tackles (nine solo) in 15 games. Stephen hasn't worked much as a full-time starter in his career, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of upside he flashes with extended opportunity.
Alexander, who signed with the Seahawks in March, missed the majority of last season with the Rams due to the shoulder injury. He'll continue to rehab over the next few weeks with the hope of being ready for training camp. With Earl Thomas absent from team activities while he seeks a new contract and Kam Chancellor (neck) uncertain to play this season, Alexander could be pressed into significant action in the secondary if healthy.
Pocic injured his knee in the Seahawks' 2017 season finale, so it's great news that his offseason wasn't completely derailed by any sort of rehab program. If he can stay healthy, the 2017 second-rounder should be considered a favorite to open the 2018 season as a first-string guard.
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.
Johnson is a new arrival in Seattle after spending four years with San Francisco, and he's looking to harvest on Richard Sherman's departure. The 26-year-old corner carried a heavy workload in 2017, playing 1,029 defensive snaps while recording 77 tackles, seven pass breakups and one pick-six. The timing isn't ideal as Johnson is battling against Shaquill Griffin and Byron Maxwell for a steady role. No timeline has been released for his recovery.
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.
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.
Stringfellow went undrafted back in 2017, spending short stints with the Dolphins and Jets. However, he never saw action in a regular-season game and was relegated to practice squad duty for much of the year. Stringfellow was brought in on a tryout basis by Seattle over the last few days and apparently showed enough upside to earn a deal. He'll join the Seahawks for offseason workouts and potentially training camp, though Stringfellow still has an uphill battle to make the final roster.
Clark nursed wrist, hamstring, thigh and toe injuries during the 2017 campaign, but he didn't miss a game and posted the highest snap count (742) of his career. Therefore, worries about Clark's health aren't necessary at the time. With Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett no longer on the roster, however, Clark will be leaned on to carry another heavy workload. The 2015 second-round pick shows no signs of slowing down, though, having posted 19 sacks and four forced over the last two seasons.
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.
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.
This is the spot once manned by four-time Pro Bowler Richard Sherman, who signed with the 49ers in March. It's unclear if this move is because Byron Maxwell isn't attending OTAs, or if this will be Griffin's permanent position. If the latter is true, it'll be interesting to see how Griffin adjusts to the new position after racking up 59 tackles and 15 pass breakups in his rookie campaign. Regardless, Griffin should see an uptick in responsibility with the departure of Sherman.
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.
According to Carroll, it was "obvious" that Lockett wasn't playing at 100 percent in 2017, despite the receiver being healthy enough to suit up for all 16 games. We'd agree, as Lockett not only seemed less explosive, but his efficiency in the stat sheet took a hit -- Lockett averaged career lows in yards per target (7.8) and yards per reception (12.3) last season after recording 9.3 YPT and 13.7 YPC over 135 looks during his first pair of pro campaigns. Now healthy, Lockett has an opportunity to re-establish himself as a dangerous weapon for quarterback Russell Wilson in a 2018 Seahawks offense that lost Jimmy Graham (Packers) and Paul Richardson (Redskins) in free agency this spring. Big-bodied wideouts Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown were the headlining additions to what remained of a receiving corps that otherwise includes stalwart Doug Baldwin, but none seem to profile as a deep threat quite like Lockett does.
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.
Perry spent less than a month of the 2017 season with Indianapolis before being waived in November. The 24-year-old linebacker suited up for two games but only played four defensive snaps and made no tackles. Perry will battle for a special teams position with Seattle.
The 40-year-old kicker was kept out of OTAs, but his hip appeared to be healthy as he made long field goals during live drills. Janikowski is assumed to be the Week 1 starter, despite the Seahawks bringing in former three-year Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers. However, Janikowski missed the entire 2017 season with back issues, so staying off the injury list is a top priority. During his last full season in 2016, Janikowski missed just one of 26 field-goal attempts under 50 yards.
Just over a week after he was let go by the Seahawks, Davis will return to the team that claimed him on waivers last spring after he was released by the 49ers. Multiple injuries in the 2017 Seattle backfield allowed the 2015 fourth-rounder 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 season, both Chris Carson (ankle/leg) and C.J. Prosise (ankle) are still in the mix. Though they are both bouncing back from injuries, the duo should 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.
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.
Beavers has struggled to make a strong impression with New England. There's a chance he'll land elsewhere, though.
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.
Wilson's contract negotiations with the Seahawks in 2015 weren't especially amicable, and with monster deals being penned around the league -- QB Matt Ryan recently signed a record-setting, five-year, $150 million extension with $100 million guaranteed -- there's reason to believe that will happen again. Talks about a new pact will likely commence after Packers QB Aaron Rodgers inks a long-term extension, but sources close to Wilson expect him to finish his current contract and be franchise-tagged for the 2020 season. Wilson's first franchise tag would cost the Seahawks $30.34 million, a second one in 2021 would cost $36.41 million and a third one in 2022 would cost $52.43 million. It's a long way out, but those numbers are staggering and possibly crippling to Seattle's payroll. Of course, this would all be alleviated with a successful extension by March 2020.
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.
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.
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. The team recently signed Stephen Morris, who likely would be the underdog in a training camp battle against Davis.
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.
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.
The 26-year-old center has started all 63 games 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.
It was previously reported that Jordan was facing a 6-to-8 week recovery timetable from a cleanup procedure on his knee. However, that timetable was from the time of the surgery, which gives Jordan more than enough time to make a full recovery, barring any setbacks, before training camp begins.
McDowell is reportedly dealing with extensive brain/eye trauma as a result of an ATV accident he was involved in last summer. The Seahawks have been careful to keep his situation under wraps, though it's truly been an extremely disappointing situation for both sides after Seattle drafted him in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. There have been rumors the team is expected to terminate his contract in the near future.
Coleman will remain in Seattle in 2018 after recording 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks and two interceptions last season. The 25-year-old could see an even larger role in the Seattle defense during the upcoming campaign in light of the departure of Richard Sherman.
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.
There aren't any further details surrounding Lane's arrest, other than he was released from jail four hours after being booked. The 27-year-old has spent all six of his NFL seasons with the Seahawks, but was nearly dealt to the Texans in October before a failed physical kept him in Seattle. Lane's diminished effectiveness cost him playing time late in the season, and the offseason DUI arrest certainly won't help his standing in the organization.
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.
Maxwell, who spent the first four seasons of his career with the Seahawks, returned to Seattle last November and started the final six games of the season, piling up 38 tackles, seven pass breakups and one interception in that stretch. Cornerback is an area of need for the team with Richard Sherman no longer around, and Maxwell should have every opportunity to open the 2018 season in the starting lineup across from Shaquill Griffin.
Fant tore his ACL during the Seahawks' second preseason game last summer. Now over nine months removed from surgery, it's no surprise that he'll be on the field for training camp. When ready, the third-year lineman will compete for the starting job at left tackle.
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.
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.
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.
A good sign for the offensive lineman, given Fluker's limited availability throughout OTAs due to knee soreness.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thomas has one season remaining on his four-year, $40 million contract with the Seahawks, and he's averaged 4.88 tackles per game and added nine picks during the first three years of the deal. However, any extension would ink him into his 30's, which is risky for a player that has missed seven games due to injuries in the last two campaigns. If Seattle is unwilling to fork up the cash, Thomas could be on the trade block with Dallas showing interest as well. Thomas is clearly one of the most talented safeties in the league, but Seattle has Bradley McDougald on the roster as well. McDougald accrued 75 tackles and four pass breakups in 2017 and will take the first-team reps for the time being.
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.
Marshall hasn't participated in team drills since signing with the Seahawks on May 29, with his absence caused by a minor hamstring injury rather than any issue with the ankle that ended his 2017 campaign. Given that he's 34 years old and spent the offseason rehabbing from surgeries on his ankle and toe, Marshall could be susceptible to additional lower-body injuries and doesn't figure to look much like the player who caught 109 passes for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Jets in 2015. He's no lock to earn a roster spot in Seattle, where Tyler Lockett, Jaron Brown, Marcus Johnson and Amara Darboh are also competing for snaps and targets behind entrenched top option Doug Baldwin. The Seahawks brought Marshall in on a one-year, $1.105 million contract that includes only $90,000 guaranteed and another $1.105 million available through incentives, per OverTheCap.
