Seahawks signed LB Terence Garvin, formerly of the Redskins.

Garvin played just 58 defensive snaps in 2016 but is a standout special teamer.

Seahawks signed ILB Michael Wilhoite, formerly of the 49ers.

Wilhoite chewed up snaps for the 49ers' ineffective defense the past two seasons, but was part of the problem. Now on the wrong side of 30, Wilhoite will be a reserve run thumper for the 'Hawks.

Seahawks claimed K John Lunsford off waivers from the Bucs.

Tampa Bay cut Lunsford when it added Nick Folk to compete with -- and probably overtake -- failed 2016 second-rounder Roberto Aguayo. In Seattle, Lunsford will battle head-case Blair Walsh to replace Steven Hauschka.

Seahawks signed S Bradley McDougald, formerly of the Bucs, to a one-year, $1.8 million contract.

The deal comes with a $750,000 signing bonus. McDougald, 26, also visited the Browns. He would have started in Cleveland, but McDougald will settle in as Seattle's No. 3 safety behind FS Earl Thomas and SS Kam Chancellor, both of whom are recovering from surgeries. McDougald showed promise in Tampa Bay as a box safety, but the Bucs moved on with former Cowboys S J.J. Wilcox.

Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Marshawn Lynch's agent said the retired running back "does miss football."

Despite that admission, Lynch's agent claimed ignorance on his apparent comeback plans. "Well in all sincerity, Marshawn’s been in Canada," the rep said. "I’m due to see him this week. ... He loves the game of football. He’s 30. But until I meet with him this week, you know, I don’t know what his mindset is. He’s the kind of guy that can shift by the hour." All reports have had Lynch angling for a shot with his hometown Raiders. The situation should come to a head sometime in the next few weeks, if not days.

The Browns hosted free agent SS Bradley McDougald.

With Derrick Kindred and Ed Reynolds currently sitting atop the depth chart, the Browns need help at safety. They missed on Tony Jefferson in wave one of free agency. McDougald is a 26-year-old box safety with man-coverage experience against tight ends. He's been a starter in Tampa Bay the past two-plus years.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it's "Raiders or bust" for Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch isn't willing to play for the Seahawks or anyone other than his hometown Raiders. Additionally, Lynch un-retiring is "realer than it's ever been," which lines up with what MMQB's Peter King reported on Monday. Expect this to get worked out before the draft so the Raiders know what they have. Right now, odds seem much better than 50-50 that Lynch will be a Raider.

A source told MMQB's Peter King that Marshawn Lynch "really wants" to play for the Raiders.

"He also wants to do good things for his foundation in the area," the source said. "This is a great chance to accomplish both things." Lynch is from the Bay Area and has reportedly asked the Seahawks for his release so he can sign with his hometown Raiders. Per King, Lynch-to-Oakland is "real."

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia believes the Seahawks may be forced to cut Marshawn Lynch if he decides to come out of retirement.

Lynch would be owed $9 million, a number which would take up a large chunk of Seattle's remaining $14.7 million cap space. The Seahawks could hold Lynch in an effort to extract a draft pick from the Raiders, but doing so would limit their flexibility in the second and third waves of free agency. If Lynch does come back, Kapadia believes the Seahawks will "most likely" release him.

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia told Next Level Fantasy's Mike Clay Tyler Lockett (broken leg) is ahead of schedule and should be ready for Week 1.

Coach Pete Carroll said the same in January, but it is good to hear it from someone other than the notoriously optimistic coach. While Paul Richardson made a splash in the playoffs, Lockett has proven he can be a dangerous weapon when given the chance. Unfortunately, those chances have not come as consistently as his fantasy owners would like through two seasons.

Seahawks signed OL Oday Aboushi to a one-year contract.

It's a solid addition to an offensive line that was among the worst in the league. Aboushi spent most of 2016 as a backup, but made some late-season appearances at guard. He gives Seattle depth inside and at tackle. Aboushi has borderline starter traits but figures to remain in a swing role.

Seahawks signed LB Arthur Brown.

Brown split time between Jacksonville and the Jets last season. He was waived in December and spent the final month out of the league. It's a low cost flyer for Seattle. 26-year-old Brown will compete for a backup role.

According to Jordan Schultz of the Huffington Post, Marshawn Lynch asked for his release Thursday in a meeting with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider.

Schultz added that Lynch has been wearing Raiders gear around his friends. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo confirmed that Lynch was at the Seahawks' facility on Thursday, though Garafolo called it "more of a personal visit than anything." Garafolo went on to say that Lynch is in a "holding pattern" and is still weighing his options. Lynch is an Oakland native and the Raiders need a running back. It doesn't look like this story is going away.

According to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia, Marshawn Lynch is more likely to be released than traded if he comes out of retirement.

There's been talk of Lynch returning to play for his hometown Raiders, who are looking to replace lead back Latavius Murray. The Seahawks still own Lynch's rights, so he would have to be traded or released for that to happen. To pull off the trade, the Seahawks would have to convince Oakland to take on Lynch's $9 million salary, which seems unlikely. Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Lynch is in shape but is still deciding whether to resume his playing career.

Seahawks re-signed TE Luke Willson to a one-year contract.

The deal includes an $800,000 signing bonus. Seattle had a brief flirtation with Jared Cook but decided to bring back Willson after Cook signed with Oakland. Per ESPN's Adam Caplan, the deal is worth "up to" $3 million. Willson will resume his role as Jimmy Graham's primary backup. 27-year-old Willson has never caught more than 22 passes in a season.
