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?
WR – Jermaine Kearse, Washington
Kearse was a three-year starter for the Huskies, proving to be the favorite receiver of both current Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker and current Huskies starting QB Keith Price. Kearse had a down year in 2011, with only 47 catches for 699 yards and 7 TDs. He did have a 1,000-yard year in 2010 though (63-1005-12), proving he can be a go-to receiver. With his record of production, good size (6’2”, 208 lbs) and a much faster 40-yard dash time during his Pro Day compared to the Combine (4.44 vs. 4.58), Kearse seems like the most likely candidate to make the squad.

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.

Despite heavy criticism from draft pundits, Damon Hatheway thinks the Seahawks found their man in the first round.
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...

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...
