Seahawks Give Physical to Former Bills RB Fred Jackson

index

The Seahawks could have a great new addition to the backfield, as the team today gave a physical to just released Bills running back Fred Jackson.

Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch are about to be reunited.

Jackson is flying to Seattle today and is expected to sign with the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

In Seattle, Jackson would back up Lynch. That’s a familiar role for Jackson, who also shared a backfield with Lynch in Buffalo. The two were teammates with the Bills from 2007 to 2010.

Jackson is 34 and on the down side of his career, having averaged a career-low 3.7 yards a carry last season. But the Seahawks apparently think he has something left, and he’s about to join one of the best running offenses in the NFL.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson Graces the Cover of ‘Rolling Stone’

After three years in the NFL, Russell Wilson has 36 regular-season wins, the most by any three-year quarterback in history. And despite the unpleasantness in last February’s Super Bowl, he already owns a championship ring. He was All-ACC at North Carolina State and, after a disagreement with his coach about missing spring practice to play baseball, transferred to Wisconsin and promptly led the Badgers to the Rose Bowl. He knows all things come through Scripture, discipline, and management.

At Wilson ‘s July 5th appearance at the Rock Church , a megachurch in San Diego , he dropped two bombs. First, he mentioned that his Super Bowl interception was all part of God’s plan: “The play happens, I take three steps, and God says to me, ‘I’m using you.’ My sixth step, God says to me, ‘I want to see how you respond, but more importantly I want [the world] to see how you respond.’?”

The fact that Wilson ‘s theological rationalization for the most infamous play in Super Bowl history got lost in the wash only speaks to the jaw-dropper he launched earlier in the conversation. Wilson met Ciara through a mutual friend in L.A. about six months earlier — and even that was preordained. Wilson had already told his friends before they met that he was going to end up with her. At the church, Wilson told the congregation and minister Miles McPherson, a former NFL defensive back, that he and Ciara were not doing the deed. God had speed-dialed Wilson again, this time backstage at his girlfriend’s show.

“She was on tour,” Wilson said, “and I was looking at her in the mirror 15 minutes before she went onstage. God said, ‘I need you to lead her.’?” Wilson smiled. “I was like, ‘Really? Right now?’?” Right away, Wilson asked her if she would be OK with taking all “that extra stuff off the table.” She agreed.

“I knew God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me and to bless so many people with the impact that she has and I have,” said Wilson . “He has anointed both of us — he’s calling for us to do something miraculous and special.” Wilson then quoted the book of Romans: “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”

Seahawks Safety Kam Chancellor Still Hoping to Get Deal Redone

NFC Championship - Green Bay Packers v Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is still holding out hoping to get his deal reworked.

“I don’t know that we’re any closer but I know that we’re all working, working to stay connected,” head coach Pete Carroll said Saturday via Matt Clarida of NFL.com. “There’s still stuff to be talked out.”

On Saturday, Carroll was asked if the ongoing holdout surprises him: “No, because he’s very strong minded. He’s wanted to make a very clear statement, which he’s doing.”

Report: Wilson to Shelf Contract Talks if Deal Isn’t Done By Friday

russell-wilson

John Clayton and Jim Trotter of ESPN are reporting today that if Seahawks QB Russell Wilson doesn’t get a deal with Seattle in place by Friday, then he will table the talks altogether.

Although a long-term deal for Wilson remains Seattle’s top priority, the star quarterback does not want contract talks to extend into training camp, according to sources.

Wilson currently is scheduled to make $1.54 million this season — the fourth and final year of his rookie contract — and would face the possibility of being designated with the Seahawks’ franchise tag next February if he does not reach a long-term deal.

The 26-year-old Wilson publicly has hinted that he is seeking a contract that would pay him approximately $25 million per year, a deal that would make him the NFL’s highest-paid player.

It’s a risky bet for the team to even come close to letting Wilson reach free agency at the end of the season, but at the same time is he worth the $25 million that the article claims he’s looking for?

Just remember the awful QB’s the Hawks were marching out before they got Wilson, and the future they would have to face if they did play their cards and didn’t get a deal done.

Seahawks Safety Earl Thomas To Miss The Start of Training Camp

Seahawks All-Pro safety Earl Thomas will not be ready for the start of training camp as he rehabs from shoulder surgery and his availability for the regular season opener against the St. Louis Rams is in doubt according to Ed Werder of ESPN.

Thomas underwent surgery in February to repair a torm labrum and reports at the time that there was “no doubt” he would be ready for the regular season were somewhat surprising given that full recovery from this kind of surgery normally takes six to eight months. According to Werder, the good nes is that that Thomas is making “steady progress” in his rehab and has not suffered any unusual setbacks.

Report: LB Bobby Wagner and Seahawks Closing in On New Deal

NFL FOOTBALL - SEATTLE SEAHAWKS VS. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS - CENTURYLINK FIELD - SEATTLE, WASH. - 142855 - 121414

There’s good news about a Seahawks player that needs a new deal, and it’s not QB Russell Wilson.

It’s linebacker Bobby Wagner, who has been reportedly talking to the team about a new deal, one that would not allow him to reach free agency after this season.

Wagner was the teams second-round pick in 2012, and has been one of the better defense players on a team that’s been stacked the last couple of seasons on defense.

Last season in 11 games he still went over 100 tackles (104) and two sacks.
