Morning Links: Free agency frenzy, Day 2

Good morning.

I have some UW football duties today, but we'll be back soon.

Let's update where we stand after Day 2 of free agency:

WR Golden Tate: Signed a five-year deal with Detroit. If somehow you missed it, you can read much more about that here.

DT Tony McDaniel: Re-signed with the Seahawks. The deal was reported at two years and a maximum of $6.3 million.

RT Breno Giacomini: Signed with the New York Jets.

CB Walter Thurmond: Visited Jacksonville. Yet to sign.

DT Clinton McDonald: Signed for four years and $12 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

LB O’Brien Schofield: Had been set to sign with the New York Giants before his physical raised questions. says the deal is "dead" because of that.

Other Seahawks free agents:

CB Brandon Browner: Reportedly visiting the Patriots, who signed Darrelle Revis yesterday.

TE Kellen Davis: Don’t anticipate seeing him back following the Anthony McCoy signing.

K Steven Hauschka: Waiting to hear on Hauschka.

QB Tarvaris Jackson: Tweets from him last night indicate he will be back on a one-year deal.

S Chris Maragos: Signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

G Paul McQuistan: Continued defending himself in the comments of this blog.

FB Michael Robinson: No action, other than he has an appearance on the Young and the Restless today. Seriously.


> Already today, Chris Clemons reportedly signed with Jacksonville.

> The Eagles traded a fifth-round pick for Darren Sproles. He will be fun to watch in Chip Kelly's offense.

> Danny O'Neil of 710 says Golden Tate's departure shows losses are inevitable.

> Pro Football Talk says Revis will get $12 million this year, then $20 million or free agency the next. The second year is unlikely to happen, however.

> The Panthers officially cut WR Steve Smith this morning.

> For those who listen to sports talk radio, Mike Salk formerly of 710 has quit in Boston and may return to the Seattle market.
