Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the team is trying to hammer out a contract extension with walk-year WR Doug Baldwin.
"Hopefully, eventually we'll get something worked out," Carroll said. "The intent is to get him signed and secured for a good while." The sides have talked on and off this offseason, with Baldwin embracing the possibility. Coming off a 14-touchdown season, Baldwin probably understands he should strike while the iron is hot. The Seahawks, meanwhile, are almost certainly leery of overpaying. It could be a while before a deal is finalized. Jun 16 - 5:22 PM

Doug Baldwin expects to open extension talks in the coming weeks.

Baldwin met with GM John Schneider before the draft, but there's been no progress since. After a breakout 14-touchdown 2015, Baldwin is likely seeking at least Mohamed Sanu money ($6M annually). Baldwin lacks the traits of a No. 1 wideout, but has been Seattle's leading receiver two of the last three years.

Contract-year WR Doug Baldwin expects to begin extension talks soon.

"We’ll see how it goes," Baldwin said. "Of course, I’m not worried about it. I’m here working out with my teammates trying to get better for this upcoming season." Baldwin is a fine player, but, going on 28, he's probably never going to be more valuable than he is coming off his 14-touchdown 2015. Of course, the Seahawks know this, as well. The Seattle Times guesses a deal will get done before Week 1.

Doug Baldwin said the Seahawks will "go back to the run game" this season.

Russell Wilson attempted a career-high 483 passes last season including his first two 40-throw games. Baldwin expects those numbers to come down and his personal numbers to fall with them. "I know everybody is going to talk about the raw numbers, but I'm not going to get the raw numbers," Baldwin said. "What I am going to get are chances on third down, so I'm going to make the best of those when I get them." The volume might not be there, but Baldwin should remain a factor in the red zone, where he converted 7-of-17 chances last season. Even so, Baldwin will be hard-pressed to return consistent WR2 value this season.

Contract-year WR Doug Baldwin hasn’t had extension talks with Seattle.

"No we haven’t had any talks," Baldwin said. "And to be completely honest I’m not too concerned. I’m enjoying my time right now. Anxious to get back with my teammates." Baldwin is in the final season of a three-year, $13 million deal. He’s been Seattle’s leading receiver two of the last three seasons. The Seahawks could open talks with Baldwin closer to training camp.
Apr 6 - 7:02 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 8-of-12 targets for 82 yards in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss to the Panthers.

Lined up in the slot much of the day, Baldwin did most of his work against veteran slot CB Cortland Finnegan and FS Kurt Coleman, who both had up-and-down afternoons. Baldwin should have had a 63-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but Russell Wilson badly overthrew Baldwin, who was wide open by about five steps down the left seam. Baldwin enjoyed a true breakout season as a 27-year-old with the Seahawks putting more on Russell Wilson's plate as a passer. Baldwin set career-highs across the board with a 78-1,069-14 line, leading the league in touchdowns after totaling 15 his previous four years. Baldwin has one year left on his contract at $4 million.
Jan 17 - 5:23 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 5-of-7 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Wild Card win over the Vikings.

Baldwin was the leading receiver in a game where sub-zero temperatures made it nearly impossible to pass down the field. His score came against third-string corner Josh Robinson in the end zone. Baldwin has an extremely tough Divisional Round assignment in Carolina's Josh Norman.
Jan 10 - 4:58 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 5-of-7 targets for 46 yards in the Seahawks' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Baldwin was held out of the end zone for the first time in six games, but it was mostly because the Cardinals made things too easy for the Seahawks' offense. Baldwin finishes the regular season with 78 catches for 1,069 yards and a league-leading 14 touchdowns, 11 of which came after Thanksgiving. He'll be a recommended DFS option for the Wild Card round.
Jan 3 - 8:08 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 8-of-10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 16 loss to the Rams.

Baldwin's score was his 14th of the season, a new Seahawks record. Baldwin has found the end zone an astonishing 11 times over his past five games, and already has a new career-high 1,023 yards. He'll end the regular season on a tough note against Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals.

Doug Baldwin (hamstring) is active for Week 16 against the Rams.

Baldwin is good to go as a borderline WR1 for the fantasy finals. Inactive for the Seahawks are SS Kam Chancellor, RB Marshawn Lynch, C Kristjan Sokoli, OT Russell Okung, TE Chase Coffman, DL Jordan Hill and DT A.J. Francis.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "it would be a surprise" if Doug Baldwin (hamstring, questionable) missed Sunday's game against the Rams.

The Seahawks are still calling him a game-time decision but Baldwin's status is no longer in doubt after getting in a full practice session on Friday. Baldwin has been on an historic tear this past month and needs to be started in all formats.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 09:00:00 AM

Doug Baldwin (hamstring, questionable) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Coach Pete Carroll has said Baldwin will be a game-time decision, but the full session suggests he will play. Baldwin has reached must-start territory with 10 touchdowns in the last four weeks. Golden Tate burned the Rams for two touchdowns a couple weeks ago.

Doug Baldwin (hamstring) is questionable for Week 16 against the Rams.

Coach Pete Carroll has already said Baldwin will be a game-time decision. Baldwin is a risky fantasy option with Seattle playing a late game on Sunday. Tyler Lockett and Jermaine Kearse will be streaming options if Baldwin sits.
Fri, Dec 25, 2015 06:09:00 PM

Doug Baldwin (hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday, and could be a game-time decision against the Rams.

The word came from coach Pete Carroll after Thursday's practice, though he reportedly "sounded optimistic." Per Carroll, Baldwin "has a little bit of a muscle bothering him.'' A return to practice on Friday would eliminate any real doubt about Baldwin's Week 16 status.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 05:29:00 PM

Doug Baldwin (hamstring) missed Wednesday’s practice.

It’s not clear when the injury happened. For now, Baldwin should be considered day to day. Baldwin’s status will be a concern if he doesn't return to practice Thursday.
