Seahawks DT Jesse Williams has been diagnosed with Papillary Type 2 cancer.

Williams will undergo kidney surgery and won't be playing football in 2015. "Although disappointing, I am a fighter and will handle this," Williams said in a statement. "I am going to focus on my health and fighting this battle with a return to football as my ultimate goal." Just 24 years old, Williams was the 137th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll refuted a report Bruce Irvin plans to play for the Falcons in 2016.

Carroll claims Irvin was misquoted in a recent interview. "We've been talking all along," said Carroll. "He's been working out in Atlanta for three weeks, and he said in response to the question 'Do you want to come back home?' He said: 'Everybody likes to come back home, it's a dream to come back home.' It wasn't in reference to leaving us and coming back, so he was really adamant about it, and I asked him so let's leave it and not go at it anymore." The Seahawks declined Irvin's fifth-year option, making him a free agent after the 2015 season.

Seahawks contract-year MLB Bobby Wagner is hoping to get a deal done "soon."

Seattle wants to extend Wagner before the season, but talks have been delayed due to Russell Wilson’s deal. With Seattle reportedly willing to use the franchise tag on Wilson, Wagner could end up getting extended by training camp. An All-Pro in 2014, Wagner should command in the range of $8M annually.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports it's "highly unlikely" the Seahawks will extend contract-year QB Russell Wilson's deal this year.

Wilson is said to be seeking in excess of $20 million annually on a five-year extension. Per Cole, the Seahawks "have no desire to get anywhere close to that" and are willing to let him play out the final year of his rookie contract and then use the franchise tag back-to-back years through 2017. That would net Wilson around $45-48 million over the next three years. Recent reports have suggested the two sides are "10s of millions" apart in contract talks. Cole's report seconds that.

Speaking in a Thursday interview, Seahawks LE Michael Bennett said he's not back with the team "just yet."

"Actually I’m not back (with the team) just yet," were Bennett's exact words. "Not just yet." They're interesting comments from a player who has let it be known that he's unhappy with his contract. Coach Pete Carroll recently brushed off Bennett's gripes, and there's little reason to believe he'll be playing elsewhere in 2015.

Seahawks RB Robert Turbin is recovering from offseason hip surgery, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

The Seattle Times reports the operation is "not expected (to) impact his readiness for the 2015 season." The 2012 fourth-rounder is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and last chance to make an impression behind Marshawn Lynch. With "Beast Mode" possibly moving on after this season, Turbin will battle Christine Michael for No. 2 duties. Michael is the more talented runner, but Turbin was coach Pete Carroll's clear-cut No. 2 in 2014.

Seahawks contract-year SLB Bruce Irvin told Black Sports Online he's "going to be in Atlanta next season."

Irvin is from Atlanta and former Seahawks DC Dan Quinn is now the head coach of the Falcons. "I'm going to be in Atlanta next season. I'm ready," he said following the Hawks' playoff win over the Wizards Wednesday night. "Atlanta is where I want to be. Believe that." The Seahawks recently declined to pick up Irvin's 2016 option, prompting him to say, "F!@# THAT OPTION!" on Twitter.

The Seahawks have converted S Eric Pinkins to linebacker.

A 2014 sixth-round pick, Pinkins will try to make the club as a Malcolm Smith-type nickel 'backer. He missed his rookie season because of a foot injury.

Seahawks signed Washington WR Kasen Williams.

Williams failed his physical when he reported to Bengals camp. Oft-injured at the University of Washington, Williams will now get a shot with his hometown NFL team. Williams was a big recruit out of high school, but underachieved with the Huskies and showed sub-par athleticism at the Combine.

Seahawks NT Brandon Mebane (hamstring) is "ahead of schedule."

"I don't know what that timeline is for him to be back to full speed, but he's way ahead of schedule," coach Pete Carroll said. "He's looking great." Five months removed from surgery, Mebane is expected to be ready for training camp.

Coach Pete Carroll has "no concerns" with LE Michael Bennett’s contract situation.

In the second season of a four-year deal, Bennett has no leverage in his contract dispute. It’s possible Seattle restructures his deal to give him more upfront money. Bennett started all 16 games last year, posting 38 tackles and seven sacks.

Seahawks signed seventh-round DB Ryan Murphy to a four-year contract.

Murphy went from undrafted to late-round flier after running 4.48 with a 39-inch vertical and 10-foot-5 broad jump at Oregon State's Pro Day. At 6'1/214, he profiles best at corner in Seattle's Cover-3.
May 8 - 6:27 PM

Seahawks signed sixth-round DE Obum Gwacham to a four-year contract.

Gwacham (6'5/246) is a major project after converting from wideout to defensive end his senior year. He ran 4.72 at the Combine with a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. Gwacham will be limited to special teams as a rookie.
May 8 - 6:19 PM

Seahawks signed No. 134 overall pick OG Mark Glowinski to a four-year contract.

Glowinski opened Seahawks rookie camp at right guard, but could become an option in training camp to push Allen Bailey at left guard. An excellent athlete for the interior line, Glowinski is a physical battler in the trenches.
May 8 - 5:45 PM

Seahawks signed No. 130 overall pick OL Terry Poole to a four-year contract.

A two-year college starter at tackle, the Seahawks are moving Poole to left guard. Poole has the athleticism (5.09 forty, 31-inch vertical) to excel in Seattle's zone scheme. He'll get a chance to compete with Alvin Bailey in training camp.
