Seahawks Draft Pick TE Colby Parkinson Inks Four-Year Deal

Tight end Colby Parkinson signed his four-year rookie deal with the Seahawks Tuesday, becoming the first of the team’s eight 2020 draft picks under contract, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

The signing of draft picks is not real newsworthy anymore since all draft picks get four-year contracts with overall dollar values based on where they were selected and determined by the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Parkinson was the 133rd overall pick in the fourth round, meaning he will get a contract worth a total of $3.9 million with a signing bonus of $670,440. That means a salary cap number of $777,610 for the 2020 season (draft picks are considered to have a $610,000 cap hit until they sign their deals and their bonuses take affect).

The Seahawks have a listed $13.9 million in cap room, according to OvertheCap.com, before the signing of Parkinson. The signings of the rookies, which will likely unfold now over the next few weeks and will likely all be done by the time training camp begins, will eat into that number by roughly $3 million or so.

Parkinson, who played at Stanford, is expected to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster at a loaded tight end position.

Seahawks Veteran OT Duane Brown Says He’s Healthy and Ready for 2020

There is good news when it comes to Seahawks offensive lineman Duane Brown, as reports today state that he is expecting to be ready to go for the 2020 season.

The tackle says he’s 100 percent from bicep and knee injuries last season that that forced him to sit out five games and a playoff game.

“I didn’t get anything done to it,” Brown said via ProFootballTalk.com.

“It’s doing great. Been working out and haven’t really had any restrictions or limitations with it.

“Knee is doing great. Didn’t have any more work done. After the year (I) got it checked out and just got treatment done to it.

“And since then, just been working out, keeping it strong, moving around. Typical offseason for me at this point. Not nursing it too much so I’m doing pretty good.”

As one of the veteran offensive lineman on the Seahawks roster, it’s important that he is not only healthy but stays that way to help the team rush the ball and protect QB Russell Wilson.

Brown, who will enter his 13th NFL season in 2020, says he has not thought about retirement.

Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar Facing Four Counts of Armed Robbery

Two NFL players including a 2019 1st round draft pick have been accused of armed robbery and arrest warrants have been issued, TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement confirms Giants cornerback Deandre Baker (the 30th overall pick in 2019) is facing 4 charges of armed robbery and 4 charges of aggravated assault with a firearm.

Seahawks corner Quinton Dunbar is facing 4 counts of armed robbery.

According to police, the two men were partying in Miramar, FL on May 13 when things took a disturbing turn.

Cops say Baker and Dunbar were allegedly hanging at a cookout — playing cards and video games when an argument broke out and Baker whipped out a semi-automatic firearm.

Cops say the men began to rob party guests with Dunbar assisting in taking watches and other valuables at the direction of Baker.

At one point, cops say Baker directed a 3rd man who was wearing a red mask to shoot someone who had just walked into the party but fortunately, no one was actually shot.

Law enforcement says the men made out with more than $7,000 in cash along with several valuable watches including an $18,000 Rolex watch, a $25,000 Hublot and a pricey Audemars Piguet timepiece.

There are conflicting reports from witnesses about whether Dunbar was armed with a gun some say he was, others say he was not.

One witness told police they had met Baker and Dunbar at a party a few days earlier in Miami at which the NFL players had “lost” around $70,000.

Sources say the men had “lost” the money in high-stakes card games and other forms of gambling.

One witness told police the men were gambling again at the May 13 event when an argument broke out and Baker allegedly flipped a table and busted out his piece.

According to police, some people at the party believe it was a planned robbery because when the 3 men were done taking valuables, there were 3 getaway cars strategically positioned to “expedite an immediate departure.”

Could Marshawn Lynch Be Back with the Seahawks in 2020?

Marshawn Lynch returned to the Seahawks last season and played in the final regular season game against the 49’ers, and then in the two playoff games against the Eagles and Packers.

He really didn’t make much of an impact, rushing for just 67 yards in the three games he appeared in, but the team overall liked his veteran experience and his attitude, and they wouldn’t mind bringing him back in 2020.

Today on NFL Network the topic of Lynch returning was talked about, as he told Scott Van Pelt on his radio show that his agent has spoken to the Seahawks.

Do you think the team should bring Lynch back in 2020? Or should they move on from him and give his carries to someone else?

Seattle Seahawks Top 10 All-Time Draft Picks

The NFL Draft is this week, and the Seahawks are going to do what they can to improve their team to make another Super Bowl run in the 2020 season.

With the draft upcoming, it’s always fun to take a look back and see what the team has done in the past, and today we take a look at the very best of the best for the Seahawks, as we give you the “Top 10 All-Time Seahawks Draft Picks,” going back to when the team joined the league in 1976.

Feel free to comment or give us any players you felt we missed out on!

10. Michael Sinclair 1991

The Hawks 1991 draft was a bust early with the pick of QB Dan McGwire, who was terrible, but they hit the jackpot in the 6th around with defensive end Michael Sinclair. For 11 seasons Sinclair was a beast with 73.5 sacks, a big part of the team’s defensive till 2002.

9. Kenny Easley 1981

This Hall of Fame safety was the Hawks first-round pick during the 1981 season, and he was worth every penny the team paid him over the six seasons he spent with the team. The former UCLA Bruin had 32 picks to go along with eight sacks, and was a force each and every time he took the field.

8. Kam Chancellor 2010

Let’s stay with the safety position for the 8th pick on the list, as Kam Chancellor comes in after being picked by the Hawks in the 5th round with the 133rd pick. Chancellor was part of a great draft class with Russell Okung and Earl Thomas, and he was on par with the best in the league until he left the team in 2017, putting up 10 picks and two sacks.

7. Earl Thomas 2010

How about a third straight safety? You got it, and there wasn’t many better from 2010 till he left the team under tough circumstances in 2019 than Earl Thomas. Taken in round two, Thomas recorded 30 interceptions and put up two sacks, but sadly many will recall the middle finger incident that marked the end of his career in Seattle.

6. Joey Galloway 1995

Some think Galloway didn’t live up to expectations, but coming out of Ohio State Galloway was a force for the Hawks from 95 till 2010, catching 77 touchdowns with 701 catches and 10905 yards. He had great speed as well as great hands, and really doesn’t get mentioned enough as a wide out who made plays during years the Hawks struggled to find a good QB.

5. Kevin Mawae 1994

This rock at center for the Hawks has a well deserved bust in the Hall of Fame, playing from 1994 to 2009 for Seattle. He played in the most games (241) of any Seattle draft pick other than kicker John Kasay (301), showing his durability and how he was able to avoid injury. A very worthy second-round pick in 94 for the Hawks.

4. Cortez Kennedy 1990

The third overall pick in the 1990 draft also has a bust in Canton, well deserved for his 10 seasons making plays on defense for the Seahawks. Kennedy piled up 58 sacks, but was more known for disrupting the run game for opposing teams, and he also played in 167 games, again showing how he played through injuries and bumps and bruises. A force to reckon with.

3. Walter Jones 1997

Let’s stay with Hall of Famers for the Hawks, throwing offensive tackle Walter Jones in the mix with the third overall pick. The lineman rarely was heard about, because he was so good and was rarely flagged for holding or any other infraction. He played with the Hawks from 97 till 2008, playing in a total of 180 games.

2. Russell Wilson 2012

A heck of a draft for the Hawks in 2012 saw them grab Bruce Irvin, Bobby Wagner, and in the third round a QB that has taken them to two Super Bowls in Russell Wilson. It’s tough to dispute how good Wilson has been in the last eight years, throwing for 29734 yards with 227 touchdowns. Don’t be surprised to see a bust of Wilson in Canton someday.

1. Richard Sherman 2011

The Hawks fifth round-pick is a player that is the best of the best for our list – that being cornerback Richard Sherman. The loud, talkative Sherman was a force for the team and was the big name player who helped the team to a pair of Super Bowls. He ended his Hawks career in 2019 with 35 picks and teams rarely challenged him, and when they did, they often regretted it.

Seahawks Bring Back LG Mike Iupati, Pull Tender Offer to Malik Turner

The Seahawks and Mike Iupati have an agreement on a contract for the team’s starting left guard from 2019 to return in 2020, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma Tribune reports.

The deal for Iupati, a 10-year veteran who turns 33 next month, was first reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero Tuesday.

Iupati played all 16 games last regular season, the first time he’d done that since 2012 when he was with San Francisco. He played through a foot injury and nerve issue in his neck before he missed both of Seattle’s playoff games in January.

The official NFL transactions for Tuesday showed the Seahawks pulled their tender offer to exclusive rights free agent Malik Turner. That makes the wide receiver who emerged the last two seasons as a target for Russell Wilson before dropping a key pass late in Seattle’s playoff loss at Green Bay in January an unrestricted free agent.
