Welcome home Bruce
When the Seattle Seahawks selected Bruce Irvin with the 15th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft I was critical of the pick. Ever since then he has been doing everything in his power to change my mind and others like me.
I did not hate the pick like some of the others so maybe I am more easily swayed but from everything I have heard from or about him since being...
Per a report from Pro Football Talk, and later confirmed by Seattle Times Danny O'Neil the Seattle Seahawks have locked up 2012 1st round draft pick and the 15th overall selection Bruce Irvin from West Virginia.
Andrew Brandt reports Irvin gets $9.34M fully guaranteed over 4 yrs, w/over $5M signing bonus
Irvin is the first first-rounder to sign his contract.
The Seahawks moved...
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with first round pick Bruce Irvin.
Irvin has the ability to be one of the best pass rushers in the NFL and he also has to ability to be a huge bust. A lot of that will depend on whether or not he’s willing to put the work in on the field and also stay out of trouble off of it.
Call him the biggest reach in the draft, or call him one of the most astute picks made by the Seahawks, either way Bruce Irvin was the 15thpick in the first round of the 2012 draft and will be given every opportunity to prove worthy of the pick.
So what were John Schneider and Pete Carroll thinking when they decided the linebacker from West Virginia was their man? When you look...

Just because Red Bryant is comfortable doesn't mean the Seahawks defensive end is satisfied.
With a four-month-old son at home, Bryant is happy to have the security of the new five-year contract he agreed to with Seattle in March. But Bryant still feels that he has plenty to prove on the field.
''You've always got something to prove,'' Bryant said. '...
What a weekend it must of been at the Seahawks headquarters, and of course for Paul Allen's wallet. News being reported today by John Boyle is Seahawks announce that, in addition to Irvin, they've agreed to terms with seven other draft picks.
All but Robert Turbin and Jaye Howard. Basically in addition to DE Bruce Irvin the Seahawks announced that they have agreed to...
The Seahawks have hit pretty decently on their unrestricted free agents in the John Schneider and Pete Carroll era. Last season, players like QB Josh Portis, S Jeron Johnson, WR Ricardo Lockette, CB Ron Parker, and of course WR Doug Baldwin all played on the 53-man roster at one point or another during the year. So who has the best chance of making an impact this season?
It's the time of the NFL offseason where we focus on contract negotiations. Up until the new Collective Bargaining Agreement that was initiated last season, this was the time of year that Bengals fans dreaded. More often than not, many talented Bengals draftees were at the mercy of strict negotiations by the Brown family. Luckily, with the new CBA, a rookie wage scale is in place...
