Seahawks signed CB Demetrius McCray, WR Jamel Johnson, DT Rodney Coe, TE Chris Briggs and WR Rodney Smith to reserve/future contracts.

A 2013 seventh-round pick of the Jaguars, McCray appeared in at least 14 games each of his first three years in the league before spending 2016 on the street. A big (6-foot-2) corner, he'll get a shot in Seattle.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Seahawks could be docked a second-round pick for failing to disclose Richard Sherman's MCL injury.

Yikes. Coach Pete Carroll has to be regretting trying to explain away Sherman's (slightly) down 2016 right about now. What the Seahawks did is blatantly against the rules, but a second-rounder would be an extraordinarily severe punishment. The Seahawks are no strangers to pushing boundaries, but there's not a team in the league that doesn't play injury report games. The Seahawks are already missing a 2017 fifth-rounder for illegal offseason practice activity.

Seahawks signed CB Perrish Cox.

Cox was cut from Tennessee in November. He'll try to rehab his value in Seattle after briefly playing for them in 2013. The Seahawks need corner depth with Deshawn Shead recovering from a torn ACL.

Coach Pete Carroll said he had a "big meeting" with Richard Sherman after the season and discussed his numerous outbursts.

"Probably the biggest regret is that we showed some bad expressions and stuff on the sidelines," Carroll said. "I had a big meeting with Richard going out, and he has some regrets about this season. It was a difficult year for him. The media thing was a big deal and all that." Sherman went after DC Kris Richard on the sideline in October, then called out OC Darrell Bevell in-game and post-game in Week 15. He also had a verbal exchange with a reporter late in the season. Sherman's antics have grown tired, but the Seahawks seem willing to put up with him for at least another year. Sherman is still playing at an elite level and only turns 29 in March.

Seahawks assistant Tom Cable has withdrawn his name from consideration for the 49ers' head-coaching vacancy.

The news comes the same day it was reported Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan has emerged as the odds-on favorite to replace Chip Kelly. Cable will return to Seattle, where he has been one of Pete Carroll's top lieutenants since he made the jump from USC.
Jan 17 - 6:09 PM

Seahawks executive Trent Kirchner has withdrawn from the 49ers' general manager search.

Kirchner's personnel partner Scott Fitterer is apparently still under consideration. Often, when a candidate publicly withdraws, it means the team has zeroed in on someone else, but that can't be assumed to be the case with the dysfunctional 49ers.
Jan 17 - 4:39 PM

Coach Pete Carroll indicated Jimmy Graham will remain with the Seahawks next season.

With Graham owed $10 million including a $2 million roster bonus due on March 11, there had been speculation the Seahawks would decide to move on, but that idea always seemed far fetched. It is more likely Seattle looks to extend the 30-year-old, who had a remarkable year coming off a torn patellar tendon and should only get better as he gets further removed from the injury. Graham will be back for what suddenly has the makings of a high-powered passing attack.

Seahawks signed WR Kenny Lawler to a reserve/future contract.

A seventh-round rookie out of Cal, Lawler made some noise during the offseason program but spent the year on the practice squad. Not blessed with above-average athleticism, Lawler's ceiling is as a possession receiver, and he will need to bulk up to fill that role. He will compete for a spot at the bottom of the roster this summer.

Seahawks signed RB George Farmer, C Ross Burbank, FS Pierre Desir, DT Tylor Harris, DT Shaneil Jenkins, FB Malcolm Johnson, WR Kenny Lawler, TE Marcus Lucas, C/G Will Pericak, and RB Kelvin Taylor to reserve/future contracts.

It's the Seahawks' practice squad. Farmer is a onetime receiver the Seahawks converted into a pass-catching back. Farmer fell behind Alex Collins late in the season and will enter 2017 behind Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise as well.
Jan 16 - 5:16 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll gave OC Darrell Bevell a strong statement of support in Monday's season-ending presser.

Specifically, Carroll said folks who criticize Bevell "don't know what they're talking about." The 2016 Seahawks finished 12th in the NFL in yards but only 18 in points scored while dealing with league-worst offensive line play. Bevell would be easier to evaluate if his offensive line weren't so easily penetrated. Ultimately, the offense Bevell oversaw did reasonably well with what it had.
Jan 16 - 4:05 PM

The Seahawks expect FS Earl Thomas (broken tibia) to be ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season.

Thomas' difference-making presence was felt severely down the stretch as Seattle allowed point totals above 30 in three of their final six games and became increasingly vulnerable to big plays, both in the run and pass games. Thomas turns 28 in May. The Seahawks have him signed for $8.5 million in 2017.
Jan 16 - 3:40 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Tyler Lockett (fibula/tibia) should be ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season.

Lockett's broken fibula and tibia ended his season and may have played role in Seattle's inability to hang offensively with Atlanta in Saturday's Divisional Round loss. For the second straight year, Lockett's offensive role began slowly before taking off down the stretch, prior to his injury. Lockett remains an intriguing Dynasty stash, although Paul Richardson made a big case for extended 2017 snaps. The Seahawks should consider moving on from Jermaine Kearse.
Jan 16 - 3:36 PM

Speaking at Monday's season-ending presser, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said C.J. Prosise will have to prove he can stay healthy as a sophomore.

"He has to show it," Carroll said. The Seahawks' thin backfield badly needed Prosise's pass-catching ability as a rookie, but he was injured all season. He had a hamstring issue in camp, hand injury early in the year and shoulder ailment late. Prosise played 147 snaps across six appearances. The Notre Dame product turns 23 in May.
Jan 16 - 3:19 PM

Speaking Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed Richard Sherman played through a "significant" MCL injury in the second half of the season.

Carroll said the injury "weighed on" Sherman mentally. Carroll might have been trying to explain away a season that was solid, but not quite up to Sherman's recent standards. Sherman's knee never showed up on the injury report, so the boundary-pushing Seahawks could be hearing from the league. Carroll did confirm Sherman won't need surgery. Two months shy of his 29th birthday, Sherman has played through a number of injuries in recent years, but never missed a game. He should have at least one more elite season left in the tank.
Jan 16 - 1:21 PM

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed RCB Deshawn Shead suffered a "really significant" knee injury in the Divisional Round loss to the Falcons.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Shead will undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL. "It’s going to take him a really long time," Carroll added without saying what Shead's injury is specifically. But it doesn't sound like Shead is dealing with only an ACL tear. He's likely to open camp on the PUP list.
