Can the Seattle Seahawks afford this d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Three free agents who could replace Byron Maxwell for the Seattle Seahawks

With Byron Maxwell on the verge of jumping to a new NFL team (most likely the Philadelphia Eagles) and just about every other cornerback on the roster banged up, the Seattle Seahawks need some help at the position.

NFL Draft: Who should the Seattle Seahawks target at 31?

Each year under Pete Carroll, the Seattle Seahawks have achieved great NFL draft success, making their money on mid-to-late round picks. Due to the Percy Harvin trade, and to trading down, the Seahawks have not had a first round draft pick since 2012, when they took Bruce Irvin out of West Virginia with the 15th overall pick.

Seattle Seahawks Should Think Twice On Brandon Marshall

There are no credible rumors that the Seattle Seahawks are talking trade with the Chicago Bears about Brandon Marshall, but there is some logic to the concept. Pete Carroll and John Schneider had made inquiries about Marshall in 2010 before he was traded from the Broncos to the Dolphins for two second-round draft picks.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was 36 inches away from being the hero in Super Bowl XLIX. If the ball placement on a pass intended for Ricardo Lockette was a bit better, or if he had checked out of that particular play, the Seahawks likely would have repeated as Super Bowl champions. But it wasn’t to be. And now Wilson, along with the rest of the team, is left wondering...
