Cowboys hired ex-Seahawks DC Kris Richard as DBs coach and pass-game coordinator.

Richard cut his teeth as a DBs coach before landing the Seahawks' DC gig in 2015. He was let loose earlier this offseason when the Seahawks had a coaching staff purge. It's a step back for Richard, but he should be back in the DC conversation maybe as early as next offseason. In Dallas, he'll be one of DC Rod Marinelli's top assistants and try to shore up a leaky secondary.

The Ringer's Mike Lombardi reports the Seahawks have "strong interest" in hiring ex-Redskins coach Jim Zorn to coach their quarterbacks.

A blast from the past, Zorn hasn't been in the league since 2012, when he coached quarterbacks for the Chiefs. He spent two years as the Redskins' head coach in 2008 and 2009 after serving seven seasons as Seattle's quarterbacks coach. Zorn also spent most of his playing career in Seattle. He turns 65 this May.

Seahawks fired DC Kris Richard and LBs coach Michael Barrow.

It's been clear for a week that Richard would be out, though Barrow's firing was previously unknown. Richard has been replaced by ex-Raiders DC Ken Norton Jr. Norton is arguably a clear downgrade, but coach Pete Carroll was determined to shake up his staff. Carroll is something of a de facto coordinator for the Seahawks, so the move won't have as big of an effect as what the Seahawks do with their player personnel.

Raiders hired Tom Cable as offensive line coach.

This is an odd hire after the Seahawks' offensive line struggled mightily the past few seasons under Cable despite pouring draft and free agency resources into the unit. Cable returns to Oakland after being the Raiders' head coach from 2008 through 2010. He joins Gruden and a new staff with the Raiders looking to revitalize the team after a down year. As Cable is known to have a tight bond with Marshawn Lynch, Cable's hire may increase the chances Lynch plays another season before the team moves to Las Vegas.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks are interested in Colts QBs coach Brian Schottenheimer for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

Schottenheimer has nine seasons of coordinating experience in the NFL, but just one of those offenses finished inside the top-15 in total yards while none finished inside the top-15 in passing yards. Seattle should aim higher.

Seahawks fired OL coach Tom Cable.

The Seahawks are cleaning house after missing the postseason for the first time in six years. They've already parted ways with four of their assistants including OC Darrell Bevell, DC Kris Richard, QBs coach Carl Davis and now Cable. Seattle's offensive line was among the league's worst this year, consistently failing to protect Russell Wilson while also opening up few holes in the running game. Personnel was an issue but obviously Cable didn't do enough with the pieces he was given. He had been with the Seahawks since 2011.

Coach Dan Quinn said there is "zero chance" OC Steve Sarkisian is leaving the Falcons to be the Seahawks' offensive coordinator.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported earlier Wednesday that "many expect" Sarkisian to replace Darrell Bevell as the Seahawks' OC under longtime friend Pete Carroll. It would be a lateral move, however, and it doesn't sound like the Falcons are interested in letting Sarkisian out of his contract only to have to replace an offensive coordinator for the season straight season.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports "many expect" Falcons OC Steve Sarkisian to end up as the Seahawks' offensive coordinator.

It would be a lateral move for Sarkisian, so the Falcons would have to allow him to leave as long as he's not on a one-year contract. Sarkisian's first year as Falcons' OC this season has had its ups and downs, failing to get Julio Jones touchdowns, not using Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman as much in the pass game, and seeing Matt Ryan come crashing back to Earth after his MVP season of 2016. But the Falcons did finish eighth in total offense and 15th in points per game. Sarkisian and coach Pete Carroll worked together at USC.

Seahawks fired OC Darrell Bevell.

Bevell had been the Seahawks' offensive coordinator for seven of coach Pete Carroll's eight seasons in Seattle. The 48-year-old has taken plenty of heat in the past but is probably most famous for calling a pass from the one-yard line in the 2014 Super Bowl when Russell Wilson was picked off by Malcolm Butler to win the title for the Patriots. Bevell has been unable to live that moment down, though overall he's been a fine offensive play-caller. GM John Schneider never really gave him an offensive line, and the rushing offense fell apart in 2017 with just one rushing touchdown from a running back. Whoever takes over the job gets perennial MVP candidate Wilson but not much else to work with, with no running backs or line and Jimmy Graham a free agent. Doug Baldwin turns 30 in September.

Colts claimed OG Mark Glowinski off waivers from the Seahawks.

Glowinski struggled mightily in four appearances (two starts) in Seattle this season, but he is a high-level athlete for the position and has a minimum base salary for next year. The Colts will carry Glowinski into the offseason.

Lions claimed DE Dwight Freeney off waivers from the Seahawks.

Freeney will be reunited with Jim Caldwell, who coached him throughout his tenure in Indianapolis. The 37-year-old logged three sacks in four games for the Seahawks before being waived on Tuesday. Freeney is understandably past his prime but can still be a helpful pass-rusher for the Lions down the stretch. He also provides some insurance for Ziggy Ansah, who has battled injuries the past several weeks.

Seahawks waived DE Dwight Freeney.

Signed in late October, the 16-year veteran lasted four games in Seattle. Freeney tallied three sacks as a situational pass rusher, so it's a bit surprising he's being cut loose. 2017 is the longtime Colt's age-37 season. It's possible he gets a look elsewhere. Despite being a vested veteran, Freeney must go through waivers since it's after the trade deadline.

Free agent CB Byron Maxwell is expected to visit the Seahawks this week.

Maxwell was an original member of the Seahawks' Legion of Boom, spending four years with Seattle from 2011-2014. Trovon Reed, another former Seahawk, is also being brought in. The Seahawks are looking to replace Richard Sherman, who is out for the year with a torn Achilles.

Seahawks waived OT Isaiah Battle.

The Seahawks needed to clear a roster spot for Jeremy Lane, who was traded to Houston but returned to Seattle after failing his physical. Battle did not see the field during his two-month tenure with Seattle.
Wed, Nov 1, 2017 05:07:00 PM

Texans acquired CB Jeremy Lane, a 2018 fifth-round pick, and a 2019 second-round pick from the Seahawks in exchange for LT Duane Brown.

Seattle has to clear salary to fit Brown's contract on the books, and Lane, who makes $4 million this year, is part of that maneuver. Lane had been a serviceable corner for the Seahawks prior to this season, as he's struggled with some injuries and was demoted to No. 4 duties behind rookie CB Shaq Griffin and ex-Patriot Justin Coleman. Lane will be the No. 4 corner in Houston as well.
Mon, Oct 30, 2017 07:25:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks "have had talks" about Texans LT Duane Brown.

Seattle has been searching for a left tackle for quite some time, and Brown was already unsettled before Bob McNair's insensitive comments this week. RapSheet also reports the Seahawks would consider moving Jimmy Graham, a move which could appeal to the Texans with C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) on injured reserve for at least the next couple weeks. All of that said, the NFL's trade deadline, October 31 this year, is almost always a dud.

Free agent DE Dwight Freeney is visiting the Seahawks.

With Cliff Avril out for the season and Michael Bennett dealing with a foot injury, the Seahawks could use some rotational depth at pass rusher. Now 37, Freeney was still productive on limited snaps with the Falcons in 2016.

Free agent OT Branden Albert will work out for the Giants later this week.

Albert left his Seahawks visit without a deal. The Giants' line is one of the league's worst. Signing Albert would give the G-Men the option of benching LT Ereck Flowers.
Tue, Oct 10, 2017 04:18:00 PM

The Seahawks worked out free agent OT Branden Albert on Monday.

Albert didn't want to play for the Jaguars and was released early in training camp, but it appears he's had a change of heart. The Seahawks could use him at peak strength, although Albert struggled at left tackle in Miami last year.

Broncos signed DT Ahtyba Rubin, formerly of the Seahawks.

Rubin, 31, was dumped by the Seahawks at final cuts after they traded for Sheldon Richardson. The Broncos' defensive front needs help; NT Domata Peko and DT Jared Crick are below-average starters. Rubin isn't much of an upgrade, but he's worth a flier to help try and shore up this defense.
