The focus so far today has been on running backs. Michael Bush, who recently visited Seattle, is now off the market after signing a four year, $14 million deal with the Bears. Pairing him with Marshawn Lynch would have been exciting, but nobody wants to pay a backup RB $3+ million per season. I suppose the Seahawks could've taken the rest of the day off to pout about losing out on Bush, but instead they've brougnt in another running back for a visit, former Packer and Buccaneer Kregg Lumpkin. Lumpkin hasn't made much of an impact in his four seasons in the NFL (he spent most of 2008 on injured reserve and all of 2009 on Green Bay's practice squad), but he's only 27, can be signed on the cheap, and his name looks hilarious on paper.
More updates will be added as they come in.

The Seattle Seahawks are finally hitching their wagon to a young franchise quarterback. Matt Flynn is coming to Seattle.

Flynn inked a 3-year contract worth $26 million dollars, $10 million of which is guaranteed.

The Seattle Seahawks are off to quite a start in free agency. They went straight to work to address some of their team needs, acquiring some of their own free agents and adding another 3 in free agency. These moves reflected where they felt their biggest weaknesses lie and I believe they will continue to work on those needs further.

The Seattle Seahawks have reached a deal with running back Kregg Lumpkin.
Seattle announced Friday it had agreed to terms with the backup running back, who spent the last two seasons with Tampa Bay. No details of Lumpkin's agreement were released.
Lumpkin appeared in all 16 games last season for the Buccaneers, although his opportunities were limited on the ground. He finished...
Omiyale is on his way
This isn’t the most sexy off season roster move the Seattle Seahawks have pulled off since the start of free agency, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t important.
Last Wednesday the Seahawks released Robert Gallery, some may wonder if it was to make room to bring in former Seahawks guard Steve Hutchinson (not that he needs introduction if you are reading this...
Seahawks add a RB
Watching the Seattle Seahawks running game last year one thing was evident: The team needed a backup running back.
Last years roster was comprised of a starting running back (Marshawn Lynch) and two change of pace backs (Justin Forsett and Leon Washington).
When Lynch was injured the team could not move the ball on the ground.
Justin Forsett became a free agent...
One of the tight ends the Seahawks brought in for a visit, Jacob Tamme, is now off the market after signing a three year, $9 million contract with the Broncos. Denver is an ideal situation for Tamme, as it reunites him with his former quarterback Peyton Manning. The other tight end we know Seattle is considering, Visanthe Shiancoe, is still available.
Since the Seahawks are...
The Seattle Seahawks agreed to terms with offensive lineman Frank Omiyale.
The 29-year-old Omiyale spent the past three seasons with the Chicago Bears, starting 31 games at three different positions.
Omiyale, who was released by the Bears on March 5, started three games last season.
