RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Pete Carroll still expects a new contract for wide receiver DK Metcalf to get finished this offseason even after Metcalf unexpectedly skipped the Seattle Seahawks' minicamp this week.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The first day of Seattle Seahawks minicamp on Tuesday was notable for who was on the field participating and who was unexpectedly absent.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — For the past decade in Seattle, nearly every team drill and every team activity had No. 3 and No. 54 at the front of the line leading the way.
That hasn’t been the case this offseason and that point was emphasized yet again Monday when the Seahawks moved into the next phase of offseason workouts.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — With such limited numbers for their rookie minicamp on Friday, of course the Seattle Seahawks were going to line up Charles Cross at left tackle and Abe Lucas at right tackle.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — A hallmark of past Seattle Seahawks drafts under the current regime was unpredictability. General manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll were always good for an occasional off-the-wall selection.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — For the better part of a decade, the first-round of the NFL draft has proved to be rather boring for the Seattle Seahawks.

9. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (7-10)
LAST SEASON: The Seahawks endured their worst record in long tenure of Pete Carroll finishing at 7-10 and missing the playoffs for only the second time since 2012. Quarterback Russell Wilson suffered a finger injury that caused him to miss three-plus games.
PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — No NFL head coach is more enthusiastic and upbeat than Pete Carroll. So it shouldn't be at all surprising that his response to the NFL's moves to enhance opportunities for minority coaches was, well, especially enthusiastic and upbeat.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks signed cornerback Justin Coleman and linebacker/special teams standout Joel Iyiegbuniwe on Thursday.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday he recently spoke with Colin Kaepernick, who expressed an interest in another chance to be a quarterback in the NFL.
Carroll cautioned that if Kaepernick gets that opportunity it may not be in Seattle, but said, “I think he does somewhere.”
Colin Kaepernick is seeking receivers to catch his passes and a team to sign him.
Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance following the 2012 season, last played in the NFL in 2016, the same year he started kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.
SEATTLE (AP) — Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner has been informed he is being released by Seattle.
Wagner confirmed the news to The Associated Press on Tuesday night, hours after the team agreed to trade quarterback Russell Wilson to Denver.

Bruins head coach Chip Kelly announced the hiring Friday of Norton, most recently the Seattle Seahawks' defensive coordinator.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Pete Carroll says the Seattle Seahawks aren’t open for business when teams may inquire about the availability of quarterback Russell Wilson this offseason.

The unknown is how deep those changes will go and how involved owner Jody Allen will be with the direction moving forward.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The bookends to the Seattle Seahawks' season may have provided the clearest examples of what their offense was expected to look like.
Everything in between turned out to be a jumbled mess with a lot of what-ifs and reasons why Seattle (6-10) will finish with its worst record since 2009.
Just like the Super Bowl, the draft, and the Jets missing the playoffs, there is another ritual in every NFL season.
The coaching carousel.
It's spinning already with two openings, in Las Vegas and Jacksonville, forced by the departures of two disgraced coaches, Jon Gruden and Urban Meyer.
SEATTLE (AP) — Now that the chances of the postseason are gone, the debate has switched toward the future of the Seattle Seahawks.
Was this season a one-year aberration? Or was it several years of minor — and major — missteps finally catching up with the franchise and a more significant change is needed?
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — There’s a page inside the information packet the Seattle Seahawks release weekly that lists all the moments in Russell Wilson’s career when led a game-winning comeback in the fourth quarter and overtime.
SEATTLE (AP) — After the final kneel down, the few remaining snowballs being tossed from the stands were no longer only directed toward officials or the Chicago Bears. Some were being flung toward the home sideline and tunnel as the Seattle Seahawks left the field.
SEATTLE (AP) — Nearly a year after he last took a snap in a game, Nick Foles showed he still has some of that Super Bowl MVP talent in his right arm.

SEATTLE (AP) — The realization of what the season has become seemed to sink in for always optimistic Pete Carroll.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Quandre Diggs lined up against Matthew Stafford every day in practice for 4 1/2 seasons in Detroit, so the Seattle safety knows a little more about the tendencies and talents of Los Angeles' quarterback than his teammates.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — There was always something blocking Rashaad Penny from matching the potential that came with being a first-round pick.
Sometimes it was his teammates and the Seattle Seahawks often choosing to go with another option.
HOUSTON (AP) — Seattle’s Tyler Lockett and Hall of Famer Steve Largent share a birthday and were both born in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The pair now has another thing in common after Lockett’s big game Sunday helped the Seahawks (5-8) to a 33-13 win over the Houston Texans (2-11).
A year ago, the Seahawks and Steelers were heading toward the playoffs. So were the Saints, Browns and Bears.
Now? Well, even if any of them stumbles into the postseason, the likelihood of doing any damage there is slim.
HOUSTON (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks will attempt to win consecutive games for the first time this season Sunday when they visit the woeful Houston Texans, losers of 10 of their last 11.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Jamal Adams' second season with the Seahawks is coming to an early end, raising even more concerns about the price Seattle paid to acquire the safety in the first place.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Desperate for depth at running back, the Seattle Seahawks signed 36-year-old Adrian Peterson to their practice squad on Wednesday.
There’s no guarantee Peterson will be added to Seattle’s active roster ahead of Sunday’s game against San Francisco, but with Chris Carson out for the season, and Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer missing last Monday’s game with injuries, the Seahawks opted to add the veteran to bolster their depth.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Rasheem Green broke through Washington's front to block an extra-point attempt, recovered the ball and rumbled all the way to the end zone.
It was good for two Seattle Seahawks points and a little bit of NFL history.

SEATTLE (AP) — Pete Carroll is willing to give an answer — usually with many words and thoughts — to nearly every question.
On Sunday, Carroll had no answers and for a time was finished with the questions.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Russell Wilson's valiant effort to return ahead of schedule from a finger injury gave the Seattle Seahawks a built-in explanation for what happened against Green Bay.
At least to some observers, the surgically repaired middle finger on Wilson's right hand explained his terrible game throwing the ball and a few poor decisions that led to Wilson getting shut out for the first time in his NFL career.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson returned to practice Wednesday after coming off injured reserve, but with no guarantee he’ll play against Green Bay.
