NFL Trade Rumors:
Ian Rapoport reports that the Seattle Seahawks will sign DE Patrick Chukwurah.
Chukwurah has been the leader in sacks for the past two seasons while playing in the United Football League.
The Seahawks also brought in Aaron Maybin, Ray Edwards, and C.J. LaBoy for tryouts, but Chukwurah wound up beating all of them out for the job.
The move was made after they lost DE Chris Clemons to a season-ending ACL injury.

It’s no secret that Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is one of the finest trash talkers in the NFL. He did his share of it during the widl card playoff game against the Redskins and, lucky for us, two things happened: 1. Trent Williams got mad enough to confront Sherman after the game and punch him in the face. 2. Richard Sherman was mic’d up. We get to hear the...
After yesterday’s road win at FedEX field, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman told the media that the noise level from the crowd was nothing compated to Seattle’s fans at Century Link Field.“Nowhere near as loud as our home. They have more (capacity than SEA) but they don’t make enough noise.”Because of the way the Seahawks’ home stadium was constructed they might have...
The Seattle Seahawks will face their divisional-round playoff battle at Atlanta without their top pass rusher, as defensive end Chris Clemons has a torn ACL, according to reports.
Clemons suffered the injury in Sunday's wild-card win at Washington and had an MRI that reportedly confirmed the injury on Monday. Clemons was not hit on the play and appeared to get his cleats caught...
The Seattle Seahawks solving 29 years of road futility in the playoffs came with a downside.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday that defensive end Chris Clemons suffered a torn ACL and torn meniscus in his left knee and will be lost for the rest of the playoffs. Clemons was injured in the third quarter of Sunday's 24-14 win over Washington, the Seahawks' first postseason...
On to the divisionals
It started with a bang, just not the bang the Seattle Seahawks were looking for.
But being the team that no one picks all year long, the way the Seahawks won this game was in typical fashion of a so called “underdog.”
Yes, we were technically the favorite, but for anyone who knows the history of this team, an away game against anybody is never a gimme, just...
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. That's incredible!
Around the Falcons' headquarters, the player to whom coaches most compare Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson is Pro Football Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton, another quarterback smaller in stature.
With the Falcons gunning for their first playoff win on Sunday in their fourth try during head coach Mike Smith's five seasons...
The slowmotion video that surfaced of Washington Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams punching Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman after the Seahawks defeated the Redskins last week did not do the incident justince. It has been brought to our attention that not only was the incedent caught on film, it was caught on the mic that Sherman was [...]
It was almost destined to happen. On Sunday afternoon, the sixth best passing offense will face the sixth best passing defense. Two should-be Pro Bowlers face up against two should-be Pro Bowlers. The battle to appear in the NFC Championship Game could come down to two matchups — Seattle cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner against Atlanta wide receivers Roddy White...
A pair of high-profile rookies could not lift the overnights for Sunday’s clash between Seattle and Washington. The Seahawks/Washington NFC Wild Card game drew a 23.7 overnight rating on FOX Sunday afternoon, down 9% from Steelers/Broncos on CBS last year (25.9), and down 3% from Packers/Eagles on FOX in 2011 [...]
Best Matchup Yet?
On Sunday afternoon and into the evening the Seattle Seahawks showed the nation why they deserved recognition in the 2013 NFL Playoffs.
After having a slow start to their contest against the Washington Redskins (when the Seahawks fell behind 14 points), both their offense and defense kicked something up a notch as they cruised to 24 straight points en route to...
All of the news coming out of FedEx Field after Sunday’s wild card showdown surrounded Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, but the real focus should’ve been on the game’s other rookie quarterback.
Russell Wilson was the forgotten member of the NFL’s rookie quarterback triumvirate for much of the 2012 season, and he appeared to fall into that role again on Sunday as RG3...
