When the Seahawks lost middle linebacker David Hawthorne in the offseason to the New Orleans Saints, middle linebacker became arguably their biggest need. They signed veteran Barrett Ruud, previously of the Tennessee Titans, and also used a 2nd round pick on Bobby Wagner out of Utah State. Ruud was once one of the most promising young linebackers in the league, but his promise was destroyed by injuries and he has bounced around the league from Tampa Bay to Tennessee to Seattle over the past few years.
Wagner has gotten the chance to work out at middle linebacker with the 1st team during OTAs with Ruud nursing yet another injury and according to the Tacoma News Tribune, he probably won’t let go of that starting job and will probably play on every down. He’ll play in between KJ Wright and LeRoy Hill at linebacker.

SEATTLE- Kellen Winslow Jr. may be the latest Seahawks roster addition and he may have the right last name, but his career path is turning out to be nothing like his father’s.
After being traded away from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a mere conditional 7th round draft pick, the temperamental TE is not guaranteed to play a starting role.
The Seattle Seahawks clearly love rookie quarterback Russell Wilson after drafting him in the third round of this year’s draft. It seems like general manager John Schneider loves him so much that he compares him to Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
“He is the closest player I’ve done to Drew Brees and Jeff Garcia in terms of sliding, finding lanes and creating...
Seahawks offensive lineman Allen Barbre was suspended the first four games of the 2012 season, Howard Balzer of the The Sports Xchange has learned. Barbre, 28, plays guard and tackle. He's not guaranteed a roster spot and his suspension complicates his chances of making the 53-man roster out of camp. The Seahawks pursued multiple offensive linemen in the offseason and also...
Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson skipped voluntary conditioning sessions this week. The conditioning sessions are, as their name says, voluntary and players do frequently skip them to train on their own. However, this is newsworthy because Jackson is in a tight competition to not only retain his starting job, but to stay on the roster.
The Seahawks brought two quarterbacks in...
According to Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen, his team has acquired tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for an undisclosed 2013 draft pick.
I’ll admit, I was wrong. I really thought Winslow would be released, since it was believed that he didn’t have much trade value. This is the second time in his career that he’s been...

Welcome to Seattle K2
The Seattle Seahawks made a great move on Monday by acquiring TE Kellen Winslow from the Buccaneers and all they had to give up was a conditional 2013 7th round draft pick that will be a 6th round pick if he makes the team and makes some plays.
Per Mike Sando of the ESPN NFC West blog. “The team does have ample cap room to absorb the $4.8 million salary,...
The Seattle Seahawks just acquired tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for an undisclosed draft pick on Monday. The Seahawks already had a solid pass-catching tight end in Zach Miller who they signed from the Oakland Raiders just a year earlier. Miller only caught 25 passes for Seattle last year though after having 60 or more receptions in each of his last...
While Tarvaris Jackson may have another competitor for a quarterback job on the roster, the height question continues to dog Russell Wilson and some wonder if he was a big reach for the Seahawks in the third round. Plus, teams are struggling with how to deal with players hurt away from work, and running backs continue to get big contract extensions.
Per Mike Sando of ESPN, the Seahawks have agreed to a trade with Tampa Bay for tight end Kellen Winslow. Trade details to follow as it is made available.
Winslow gives the Seahawks a talented pass-catching tight end that can situationally be used as a blocker. He is 29, giving the offense a veteran presence. At his best he is a pro-bowl caliber type of tight end, yet another weapon...
