Seattle Seahawks HEADLINES
Potential targets, departing Seahawks and a list of Seattle’s unrestricted free agents.
The Seahawks get the NFL’s most productive runner since 2011 to return by giving him $12 million guaranteed for this year, with two more contract seasons after that for salary-cap relief. TE Zach Miller is released. And WR Jermaine Kearse is poised for 400-percent raise.
"Beast Mode" is staying in Seattle.
You can't say "Beast Mode" is back because he never really left.
The Seattle Seahawks announced several roster moves on Friday, including the termination of tight end Zach Miller's contract.
Working to confirm what ESPNs Adam Schefter is reporting: Marshawn Lynch has agreed to the contract extension with the Seahawks that the star running back and two-time defending NFC champions have been negotiating for months before you guys even knew, as coach Pete Carroll put it for the running back the Seahawks have wanted back all along, despite national reports to the contrary this past season.
The Seahawks reportedly just set the cost of keeping restricted free agent Jermaine Kearse for 2015 at more than $2 million.
The Seahawks star goes on a football goodwill trip to Turkey and tells NTV Spor television he expected the ball from the 1-yard line with 26 seconds left in Super Bowl 49. Also, the Seahawks don’t use their franchise tag for 2015 and learn their adjusted salary-cap figure is $148.25 million.
The surgery repairs a torn labrum he suffered when he dislocated his left shoulder during the NFC Championship Game. He could miss preseason and part of the regular season.

General manager John Schneider says nickelback Jeremy Lane needs knee surgery on top of his broken arm from the Super Bowl. All-Pro safety Earl Thomas hasn’t yet had his shoulder surgery. Pro Bowl safety Kam Chancellor may or may not need knee surgery. And free-agent starting cornerback Byron Maxwell sounds all but gone from Seattle.
Seahawks GM John Schneider: Jeremy Lane needs knee surgery; Earl Thomas yet to have shoulder surgery
First the news from talking with general manager John Schneider this morning here in Indianapolis at the NFL scouting combine: It came after his podium appearance in the lobby of Lucas Oil Stadium when he said nickel back Jeremy Lane also needs knee surgery, the result of the end-zone interception and return in the first quarter of the Super Bowl Feb. 1 on which Lane also broke his arm. That means Lane will likely miss the start of next season, at least the preseason if not the real games.
The Cardinals bring back wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald for two years at $22 million, all guaranteed. The 49ers’ general manager praises Kaepernick and wants free agent Frank Gore to return. And the Rams’ GM refutes a report franchise quarterback Sam Bradford has permission to seek a trade.
Rare opportunities to score in a Super Bowl deserve celebrations that are memorable for reasons other than their outlandishness
After lessons learned during their run through Super Bowl 48, general manager John Schneider and his staff began preparing for this week’s combine and next month’s free agency even before this past regular season ended.

Kris Richard was named the new defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks, the team announced Monday evening.
Seattle also hires Michael Barrow as linebackers coach to replace departed Ken Norton Jr. and adds a second son of Pete Carroll to its staff. The promotion of Richard is the key move. “He knows how to bring us back down to earth,” Richard Sherman says.
Pete Carrolls coaching staff is apparently adding another of his sons. The Sun Sentinel newspaper in South Florida is reporting Carroll's son Brennan is leaving the staff of the University of Miami to join his dad.

The Seahawks’ quarterback, a Rule 5 minor-league free-agent draftee of baseball’s Rangers in 2013, plans to repeat a spring-training visit from last March. And the NFL says it won’t fine Lynch for his unique Super Bowl week, as it had told him it wouldn’t.
No, relax (again), hes not switching sports.
The decision to forgo a low-risk, high-reward handoff to Lynch so that quarterback Russell Wilson could attempt a high-risk, no-reward throw to Ricardo Lockette shouldn’t mask the fact the 28-24 defeat was a group effort.
The quarterback watched film of the Super Bowl 49 loss to New England 12 times in the first 18 hours following the game. He also says “I obviously want to play in Seattle forever” — whatever the money is for him beyond the rookie contract that ends after 2015.
He didn't go out like he wanted but Dan Quinn's reputation was already secured in Arthur Blank's mind.
