Fantasy Football Champs:
John Clayon of ESPN says the Seahawks are planning on either releasing quarterback Tarvaris Jackson or trading him before the start of the season.Fantasy Spin:After signing Matt Flynn to a big contract this offseason, we assumed this would eventually be Jackson's fate. He has yet to produce anything remotely fantasy relevant during his three years in the league, so even if Jackson somehow miraculously becomes a starting quarterback somewhere in 2012, he can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Terrell Owens isn’t guaranteed a rooster spot with the Seahawks, the way T.O. played against the Broncos he could be almost guaranteed not to make the team.

Preseason Preview: Seahawks at Broncos
(Note: Mike and I will both be indisposed for this game, me because of work and him because he forgot to pack a television and a couple miles of coax and extension cord for his camping trip. I’ve got my VCR set to record (yes, VCRs still exist), but the usual after-game notes post will be delayed until I can sit down and watch it. Until...
Further proving that Matt Flynn will be the week 1 starter for the Seahawks, multiple reports have said that the Seahawks are looking to trade Tarvaris Jackson and will cut him if they can’t. These reports include ones from NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora and ESPN’s John Clayton. Clayton believes he will be traded as soon as possible as that he will not play another snap for...
Linebacker Barrett Ruud was acquired by the Saints, who sent an undisclosed future draft pick to the Seahawks. Ruud was signed by Seattle after the Seahawks' starting middle linebacker, David Hawthorne, signed with New Orleans in free agency. The Seahawks then drafted Bobby Wagner in April, and the rookie has started the first two preseason games and had clearly won the job...
Three weeks into training camp, it appears as though the three-way quarterback competition is finally winding down. Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson appear to be front-runners for the starting gig while Tarvaris Jackson is presumably the odd-man out. This shouldn't be alarming at all. What might be surprising, however, is the fact that Jackson has some legitimate trade value. Which...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, wide receiver Terrell Owens hasn’t been guaranteed a spot on the Seahawks’ finals 53-man roster.

Boxscore | Recap
The Seattle Seahawks were in action Saturday night in Week 2 on NFL preseason action as they took to thin air of Denver and collided with Peyton Manning...
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning didn’t have the night he wanted at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Manning threw the ball 23 times and completed 16 of those passes. It wasn’t the in-completions that bothered the 4 time league M.V.P., it was the 2 interceptions that got to Manning. Although it is only preseason and the game doesn’t count for anything, Manning is too...
