OC Darrell Bevell said Doug Baldwin will be moving to the "X" position this season.
Baldwin has mostly functioned as an inside receiver during his three-year career, but will be kicking out to split end now that Golden Tate is in Detroit. Percy Harvin will play "Z" and Sidney Rice will be a backup on the outside. It's a bump in role for Baldwin, but note that Tate never topped 70 catches or 900 yards as a Seahawk. There's just not enough opportunities in this run-based attack to make a box-score stud out of a complementary receiver. Jun 5 - 12:31 PM

Seahawks signed restricted free agent WR Doug Baldwin to a three-year, $13 million contract.

Baldwin gets $9 million over the first two years. Not a bad haul for the former undrafted free agent out of Stanford. Baldwin (5-foot-10, 189) plays bigger than his size would indicate and has become a favorite target of Russell Wilson's. He has reliable hands and is coming of a 50-778-5 line in 2013. Entering his age-26 season, there isn't much room for statistical growth for Baldwin in one of the league's run-heaviest offenses. With Percy Harvin also returning to health, Baldwin is more WR4 than WR3. He should play every down, though. At OTAs, Baldwin is practicing at Z receiver with Harvin in the slot.

Sources tell FOX Sports the Seahawks and unsigned restricted free agent Doug Baldwin "have gotten closer on a deal."

The two sides have been in negotiations for at least a month now, and FOX's Mike Garafolo says the deal could finally "be struck very soon." Baldwin has been clear that he's perfectly fine signing the one-year, $2.187 RFA tender, but the Seahawks want to keep him in the fold for longer. He's an underrated complement to Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice.

In a radio interview, unsigned restricted free agent Doug Baldwin said he will not hold out for a long-term contract.

Baldwin has yet to sign his one-year, $2.187 million tender, but he will be with Seattle in Week 1. The two sides are currently in negotiations, and a long-term deal will likely get done before the season begins. Even if it doesn't, Baldwin looks ready to play out the season on his one-year tender.

Doug Baldwin said he is currently in contract extension talks with the Seahawks.

Baldwin is a restricted free agent that hasn't yet signed his one-year, $2.187 million tender. He said the Seahawks made a long-term offer, and he has countered. Either way, he's going to be in Seattle this season, playing the role of underrated complement to Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice.

Doug Baldwin believes he could sign a long-term contract this offseason.

A restricted free agent, Baldwin has yet to sign his one-year, $2.187 million tender, but can no longer talk with other teams. That means Seattle is his only option for 2014. "I will say things are going in the right direction," Baldwin said. "(We) are in preliminary talks. But hopefully we will figure something out soon." Baldwin is currently penciled in as a starter opposite Percy Harvin.

The NFL's deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets passed on Friday.

Doug Baldwin is the most notable restricted free agent that remains unsigned, although he was never a threat to leave Seattle. The Seahawks assigned him a second-round tender in March, worth $2.187 million. He'll sign it eventually.
May 2 - 9:18 PM

Restricted free agent Doug Baldwin has yet to sign the second-round tender the Seahawks offered him in March.

Baldwin could theoretically negotiate an offer sheet with another team, but he has generated no known interest. Baldwin worked out with a group of Seahawks last week and signed a waiver to participate in voluntary workouts this week. He also said he is interested in working out a long-term deal with Seattle. Baldwin will be a Seahawk in 2014. He's currently penciled in as their No. 2 receiver.
Apr 22 - 9:18 PM

Seahawks extended a second-round tender on restricted free agent Doug Baldwin.

The tender is worth $2.187 million. Another team could sign Baldwin if they're willing to give up a second-round pick, though that's very unlikely. Baldwin posted a career best 778 receiving yards and five touchdowns in 2013 and could return as Seattle's No. 2 receiver if they fail to re-sign Golden Tate.
Mar 7 - 6:03 PM

Doug Baldwin racked up a team-high five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's Super Bowl 48 win.

He was just too quick and too fast for Champ Bailey. Baldwin beat Bailey for a big first down midway through the first quarter, gaining six on a slot route. Plays later, he whipped Bailey down the right sideline for a gain of 37. Baldwin's fourth-quarter touchdown came on a slot route into zone coverage, scoring from ten yards out to make the score 43-8. Baldwin developed into a near-every-down wideout in Seattle's run-first offense in 2013, and should continue to flirt with fantasy WR3 value next season. His outlook would be improved if free agent Golden Tate left.
