Seahawks re-signed restricted free agent WR Jermaine Kearse to a one-year, $2.356 million contract.

About time. Kearse was slapped with the second-round tender in March and was one of the last RFAs to sign his deal. He wasn't going anywhere at the cost of a second-round pick. Kearse will fill the deep-threat role again in 2015.

The Seahawks are trying sixth-rounder Kristjan Sokoli at center.

The Seahawks have a vacancy at the pivot after trading Max Unger for Jimmy Graham. Sokoli will have a lot of developing to do after playing nose tackle in college, but the ceiling is there thanks to his freakish athleticism. At 6'5/290, Sokoli ran a 4.86 with a 38-inch vertical and 31 bench-press reps.

Coach Pete Carroll said contract talks with Russell Wilson are "going a little slow, but it's ongoing."

Carroll said the Seahawks are "waiting to hear from their side." This will be one of the biggest contracts in NFL history and there's no real rush right now, so it's not a surprise it's taking some time. Previous reports had Wilson accepting less overall money for a record-breaking amount of guarantees. "I'd rather patiently wait & see what God has in store than do something that isn't best for my life," Wilson tweeted shortly after Carroll spoke.

The Seahawks did not pick up the 2016 fifth-year option on SLB Bruce Irvin.

The Seahawks could have kept Irvin in 2016 at a non-guaranteed salary of $7.8 million. Instead, he's ticketed for unrestricted free agency next March. "Faced way tougher adversity getting outta them streets coming up!" Irvin said on Twitter. "That’s s!@# is nothing! F!@# THAT OPTION!"

Seahawks signed Georgia Tech LB Quayshawn Nealy.

Nealy (6'0/236) made 46 career starts at Georgia Tech, compiling 16 tackles for loss, one forced fumble, and eight interceptions. He was a third-team All-ACC pick as a senior. Nealy was a good middle linebacker in college, but athleticism and size deficiencies will likely limit him to special teams.
May 2 - 10:17 PM

Seahawks signed LSU S Ronald Martin.

Martin (6'1/200) became a full-time starter as a senior in the Tigers' secondary, finishing third on the team in tackles, intercepting two passes, and forcing a pair of fumbles. He only started 21 games in his four-year college career. Martin ran 4.63/4.65 at the LSU Pro Day with a 33 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. A box safety and/or dime linebacker, Martin is a big hitter with coverage limitations. He'll likely have to earn his NFL keep on special teams.

Seahawks signed Arizona WR Austin Hill.

Hill (6'2/214) looked like a future first-round pick when he recorded an 81-1,364-11 receiving line as a redshirt sophomore, but missed his entire junior year with a severe knee injury and managed a 49-635-4 number as a senior. He ran 4.57/4.62 at his Pro Day with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. A big, physical slot receiver who will struggle to win outside in the NFL, Hill could become a poor man's Jordan Matthews if he regains pre-injury form. He did test relatively well before the draft, and impressed observers at the East-West Shrine.
May 2 - 10:13 PM

Seahawks signed Central Michigan RB Thomas Rawls.

Rawls (5'9/215) spent three years at Michigan before transferring to CMU, where he earned second-team All MAC as a senior by gaining 1,103 yards with ten TDs on 210 carries (5.25 YPC), adding ten receptions. Rawls managed a 4.65 forty at the Combine with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-8 broad jump. An angry, aggressive runner and consistent finisher, Rawls is extremely physical, almost to a fault. He has some similarities to Ahmad Bradshaw.

Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable said Jimmy Graham is committed to learning to block.

Graham has obviously been a pass-catcher throughout his NFL career in New Orleans, merely getting by when asked to block. The run-first, physical Seahawks will try to get him coached up. The bigger takeaway here is that Graham is entering a different scheme and will have a bit of a different role. The gap between Rob Gronkowski and Graham in fantasy has widened.
May 2 - 9:19 PM

Seahawks selected Oregon State DB Ryan Murphy with the No. 248 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

The Seahawks love using picks this late on athletic upside. Murphy was not on the draftnik radar, but stands 6-foot-1, 214 and ran 4.48 with a 39-inch vertical and 10-foot-5 broad jump at the Beavers' Pro Day. Murphy played free safety at Oregon State, but we wouldn't be surprised if Seattle tried to turn him into a press corner. He's a developmental project.
May 2 - 6:16 PM

Seahawks selected Buffalo OG Kristjan Sokoli with the No. 214 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

A low-impact college nose tackle, the Seahawks are shifting Sokoli (6'5/290) to guard. He generated buzz in the draft community following a freakish Pro Day workout, posting a J.J. Watt-like SPARQ score with a 4.86 forty, 38-inch vertical and 31 bench-press reps. A former high school basketball player, punter and kicker, Sokoli is a total project whose athleticism has yet to be unlocked.
May 2 - 5:00 PM

Seahawks selected Oregon State DE Obum Gwacham with the No. 209 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Gwacham (6'5/246) played receiver, slotback and special teams in his first three college seasons before converting to defensive end as a senior, posting four sacks. Gwacham also competed for Oregon State's track team in the triple and high jumps. He ran 4.72 with a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump at the Combine. Gwacham has a great head on his shoulders and intriguing tools, but will be a 24-year-old rookie and may max out as a special teamer who only dabbles as a passing-down specialist. He's a poor run defender and lacks pass-rush moves.
May 2 - 4:48 PM

Seahawks selected Towson CB Tye Smith with the No. 170 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Smith (6'0/195) made 42 starts for the Towson Tigers, recording six career INTs and six forced fumbles. He was a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association pick as a senior. Smith showed sub-par athleticism at the Combine, running 4.60 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. A good lower-level college corner, Smith will need time to develop and should be able to come along slow it in Seattle.
May 2 - 3:16 PM

Seahawks selected West Virginia OG Mark Glowinski with the No. 134 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Glowinski (6'4/307) spent two years at WVU after transferring from JUCO, starting at right guard and earning first-team All-Big 12 as a senior. He had a solid Combine, running 5.20 with a 29 1/2-inch vertical, 9-foot-3 broad jump and 31 reps on the bench. Glowinski's relatively short arms (33 1/8") limit him to the interior line, but he has good feet for a big man and can generate power in his upper half. "A battler with plus athletic movement," according to NFL Films' Greg Cosell, Glowinski has starting potential at either guard spot.
May 2 - 1:39 PM

Seahawks selected San Diego State OT Terry Poole with the No. 130 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Poole (6'5/307) spent two seasons as an Aztec after transferring from community college, starting at right tackle as a junior and left tackle as a senior. He has guard arm length (33 1/4") but top-notch athleticism, running 5.09 in Indy with a 31-inch vertical and 9-foot-3 broad jump. Poole needs work, but his size-movement combination suggests he could eventually push to start in a zone scheme.
