An Educated Guess at What the 2020 Seahawks Schedule Could Look Like

Here are the teams the Hawks will play:

Home: 49ers, Rams, Cardinals, Cowboys, Giants, Jets, Patriots, Vikings
Away: 49ers, Rams, Cardinals, Redskins, Eagles, Bills, Dolphins, Falcons

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.

Seahawks LB Wagner Feels Good About the Hawks Winning the NFC West in 2020

The conference the Seahawks are preparing to battle in 2020 looks drastically different than the one from a season ago.

But linebacker Bobby Wagner doesn’t believe that should alter the impact the Seahawks will have in any way, Jelani Scott of NFL.com reports.

During an appearance on ESPN’s First Take Wednesday morning, the six-time Pro Bowler and 2010s All-Decade Team honoree was asked how his team, fresh off an 11-5 campaign, can compete in a re-tooled NFC that now includes Tom Brady, DeAndre Hopkins and a number of revamped, still improving rosters.

It could just be the offseason bravado talking but, judging by his answer, Wagner would have no issue doubling — and tripling — down on his claims should anyone revisit them in the future.

“I feel really confident. Obviously, Russell [Wilson] is an amazing quarterback; the things that he does on the field are just amazing. Like you said, he’s one of the greatest quarterbacks in our game,” Wagner said. “We’re confident on that side. I feel like from the defensive standpoint, there’s a lot of room for improvement. We have to play a little bit better. I feel like if we make those changes and make those improvements, I still feel like we’ll be the team to beat.”

What’s the Status of the Seahawks Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In?

NFL.com has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

The Seahawks have a decent wide out core, but could always use another playmaker at the position.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Seahawks receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: Tyler Lockett (82-1,057-8), DK Metcalf (58-900-7), David Moore (17-301-2 — restricted free agent).

With Lockett and Metcalf both under team control through at least 2021, and with Moore being a restricted free agent, the Hawks will likely not need to focus too much energy on this position. As far as complementing what Russell Wilson does well, consider that Seahawks wideouts caught 32 deep passes in 2019, the most in the NFL, per NGS

Michael Bennett Says He Wants to Wrap Up His Career with the Seahawks

Michael Bennett has been something of a nomad recently, playing with three teams the past two seasons. Now the 34-year-old free agent would love to return to the scene of his greatest success: Seattle, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Joining the Talkin’ Seahawks Podcast, Bennett said he would enjoy being the veteran presence on a young Seattle defensive line. The veteran, however, knows the decision ultimately isn’t up to him.

“I would love to end my career in Seattle,” he said, via NBC Sports Northwest. “It’s not up to you, though. It’s up to the team.”

Bennett’s best years came in his Seahawks run from 2013-2017. Since then, the pass rusher has been traded three times in two seasons. First, he was shipped from Seattle to Philadelphia in 2018. Then, during last offseason, Bennett was traded from Philly to New England. After just six games in 2019, the Patriots sent him to Dallas, where he closed out the season.

“My time in Seattle was great because I didn’t just grow as a player, I grew as a man, and I grew as an individual. I could never say anything bad about Seattle,” Bennett said. “I feel like Seattle was such a great part of my life. I’m so thankful for the city.”

Seahawks Scouting Houston XFL Quarterback P.J. Walker

It’s hard to deny how well quarterback P.J. Walker is playing for the XFL’s Houston Roughnecks, and he’s made enough of an impression on the Seahawks who are taking a look at him.

PFT.com reports on Walker and the Seahawks interest.

Steve Levy said at the outset of Saturday’s game between the Seattle Dragons and Roughnecks that the Seahawks have sent scouts to the game in Houston to take a closer look at Walker.

Walker will be available to sign with an NFL team after Houston’s season ends. Given that they are the only unbeaten team in the XFL, Houston could be playing until the last weekend of the XFL season, which ends with a championship one day after the conclusion of the NFL draft.
