Seahawks Ink Veteran QB Geno Smith

The Seahawks have signed quarterback Geno Smith according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.

Originally a second-round pick by the New York Jets out of West Virginia, Smith was an abject failure as a starting quarterback for Gang Green but has since carved out a respectable career as a backup. He spent the 2018 season backing up Philip Rivers for the Los Angeles Chargers.

Now 28 years old, Smith has a bette rthan even chance of winning the No.2 job in Seattle as former draft bust Paxton Lynch is the only other quarterback on the roster behind Russell Wilson.

Like the Chargers, however, the No.2 job in Seattle is a pretty dead-end job as Wilson has never missed a regular season game in his NFL career.

The Seahawks will be Smith’s fourth team in four seasons.

Seahawks Ink Former Lions Pass-Rusher Ziggy Ansah

The Seahawks have added a piece to their defense as Wednesday night it was reported that the team added defensive end Ziggy Ansah.

Ansah was one of the last very good remaining players available in free agency, but he does come with a decent amount of risk given his injury history.

From 2013-17, Ansah racked up 44 sacks. He broke out in a big way with 14.5 sacks in 2015. And in what was a contract season in 2017, Ansah notched another double-digit sack total with 12.

Did the Seahawks Get a Steal with Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf?

The Seahawks upgraded their wide out core in a big way Friday, as they selected Ole Miss speedster D.K. Metcalf in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Hoping that with the possible retirement of Doug Baldwin that Metcalf can step in, there’s also some that felt that the Hawks got a steal with the drafting of the receiver.

Seahawks’ Wide Out Doug Baldwin Reportedly Considering Retirement

Seahawks veteran wide receiver Doug Baldwin may not be back in 2019, as the eight-year vet is considering retirement.

GM John Schneider said on Friday he’s not sure if Baldwin will return for the 2019 season. Baldwin has been trying to make it back from knee, shoulder and sports hernia surgeries this offseason.

“We know Doug’s going to have a hard time,” Schneider said. “There’s a process we need to go through with the [league office and NFLPA].”

Baldwin has played all eight seasons of his NFL career with Seattle. Last season he pulled in 50 catches for 618 yards with five touchdowns.

“We’ll find out. We’re going to deal with Doug and respect everything that’s going on,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “I don’t know.”

Possibly foreshadowing Baldwin’s future, the Seahawks drafted Ole Miss wide receiver DK Metcalf in Friday’s second round of the NFL Draft.

“He has been an extraordinary part of this program since we’ve been here and he has given us everything he has had, been a great competitor, player and all that,” Carroll said.

“We believe in him so much and trust in him so much that wherever this goes, we’re going to support him forever.”

Seahawks Grab TCU DE L.J. Collier with the 29th Pick in the 2019 NFL Draft

The Seahawks used the 29th pick in Thursday’s NFL Draft to add some size to their defensive line, grabbing TCU defensive end L.J. Collier.

Collier is a prototypical 4-3 LDE with excellent length and power.

He improved his ability to locate the ball and get off blocks in 2018.

He turned heads with his ability to overwhelm tackles and interior offensive linemen as a pass-rusher during Senior Bowl week. He chases with good effort and plays faster than timed speed.

Seahawks Deal DE Frank Clark to the Chiefs for a Pair of Draft Picks

The Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks made a deal on Tuesday, as two days before the draft the Hawks dealt defensive end Frank Clark to the Chiefs for a pair of draft picks.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the deal is done, and that Clark has agreed to a five-year, $105.5 million deal that includes $63.5 million guaranteed.

The defensive end did not sign the $17.128 million franchise tag given to him by the Seahawks.

“I feel like I’m good. I wanted to be somewhere where I’m wanted, where I’m appreciated,” Clark told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Tuesday.

“I thank God that K.C. came in and showed that. … In life, you just want to be shown that you are appreciated sometimes, and I feel like this was one of those things.”

Last season Clark had 14 sacks for the Hawks, and overall has 36 sacks in his four NFL seasons.

Report: Wilson Won’t Sign Contract Extension If Not Reached by Midnight Deadline

There’s been plenty of chatter regarding the contract extension for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and the latest news about that extension isn’t very good.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Russell does not intend to sign a contract extension with the team this season if he does not reach an agreement by his self-imposed deadline of midnight tonight.

It will be a challenge to get a new deal done by that deadline, though the sides are trying as talks continue, sources told Schefter.

Wilson’s contract is up after this season. If a new contract is not agreed on, the Seahawks presumably will place their franchise tag on Wilson.

Wilson showed up Monday for the start of the Seahawks’ offseason program and is expected to continue to participate in all of the offseason activities and attend training camp.

As for suggestions that the Seahawks could trade Wilson if he does not sign a new deal, there are no obvious teams willing to surrender draft picks or pay Wilson what he is seeking, sources said.

In 2015, Wilson also set a deadline for an extension, but that wasn’t until the start of training camp, and the two sides agreed on a four-year, $87.6 million deal at the last minute. After that extension, Wilson said he would have tabled contract talks and played out the final year of his rookie contract had the two sides not met the deadline.
