Off-Season/Free Agency Thread 

Post#1 » by Cactus Jack » Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:52 am

Pete mentioned the O-line, Secondary, and Linebacker as area's they'll look to improve the roster specifically. I would agree for the most part. It's going to be a crucial off-season for the team in my honest opinion. Obviously needed improvement on the O-line is a must. More depth at DB, LB, RB, Receiver, etc.

I'm thinking Seattle should go with an offensive lineman first. Wilson shouldn't have to be a magician on every passing play.

will we keep our 1st?

I think we can keep Britt and Ifedi, go for an established FA LT or trade for one. I wouldn't mind overpaying for a RT of note either.
The question is salary cap, our own FA's and what happens with Earl.

http://www.seattletimes.com/sports/seahawks/tight-end-luke-willson-one-of-seahawks-13-unrestricted-free-agents-says-hes-hoping-to-be-back/

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

PK Steven Hauschka — He had his most uneven season as a Seahawk and had an average salary of $2.85 million on previous deal.
I still love and stand by Hauschka... i blame losing Gresham and Frese being terrible.

TE Luke Willson — Valuable number two tight end caught 15 passes this season with two touchdowns.
keep at a hometown discount.

SLB Mike Morgan — Six-year vet earned first starting role this season but missed eight games with a sports hernia issue.

Not in love with Morgan but wouldn't be sad if we kept him either.

OL Bradley Sowell — Lost starting job at right tackle late in season but started nine games.
NO way let him walk!

DT Tony McDaniel — A member of the 2013 Super Bowl winners, was brought back in August to add depth due to injuries up front and had a solid season. Turns 32 this week.
For cheap, I'd have him.

SS Kelcie McCray — Had a nice four-game stint as a starter when Kam Chancellor was injured at mid-season.
Yes unless someone overpays

SS Jeron Johnson — Veteran re-signed late in season to add depth but team could look for younger backup options next season. Indifferent

FB Marcel Reece — Former Husky proved his worth in the playoff win over Detroit. But will be 32 next season.
Maybe for dirt cheap

FB Will Tukuafu — Ended the season on Injured Reserve with a concussion.
maybe

CB Neiko Thorpe — Valued special teams player would seem a good bet to be back.
replace in draft

DE Damontre Moore — Charged recently with DWI which might make it unlikely he would return.
bye

DT John Jenkins — Claimed off waivers at mid-season, played sparingly but could be back as depth up front.
meh

TE Brandon Williams — Key special teams player would seem someone the team would want back.
special teams money

RETURNER Devin Hester — Said after Saturday’s game he’s likely to retire. With Tyler Lockett due back, Seahawks wouldn’t need a dedicated returner anyway.
Lockett

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

CB DeShawn Shead — May have suffered a torn ACL Saturday but undoubtedly is still in the team’s long-range plans.
Of course

S Steven Terrell — Had some rough moments filling in for Earl Thomas late in season.
replace

OL Garry Gilliam — Regained starting right tackle spot late in season.
hopefully only as a backup

LB Brock Coyle — Showed ability to play strongside linebacker this season as well.
hopefully for a bargain

LB Dewey McDonald — Like Thorpe, stood out on special teams in his first season with team and would seem likely to return.
on the cheap

CB Mohammed Seisay — On Injured Reserve all season with an Achilles tendon.
no idea

We are projected to have 34million in cap room.

I don't really see cap cut casualties on our roster unless they suddenly don't want Avril. I would also say that trading (5million) or cutting (1.5 million) Jeremy lane is ok by me.

Free Agency officially gets underway. It would appear Hauschka is out.

The Seahawks will not be tendering a restricted free agency offer to CB DeShawn Shead or LB Brock Coyle, according to a league source.
