Russell Wilson's agent said that he's made progress with the Seahawks in long-term talks, but that there's no deadline for a deal.

In a Thursday radio interview, Wilson's rep said "95 percent" off what's been reported about the talks is "off point." The sides have been portrayed as far apart, with Seattle willing to let Wilson play out the final year of his rookie deal.

Seahawks signed second-round DE Frank Clark to a four-year contract.

Clark was Seattle's top pick after it dealt its first-round selection to the Saints for Jimmy Graham. Clark has loads of upside, but is a real head-case off the field. He was kicked out of Michigan last November after being busted for domestic violence. Clark will vie for snaps as part of the Seahawks' deep rotation.

Seahawks signed third-round WR Tyler Lockett to a four-year contract.

Seattle traded four picks in order to move up to No. 69 overall and select Lockett. However, he's an extremely poor bet for rookie-year production outside of return-yardage leagues. Lockett doesn't have a clear path to targets as a receiver, but is fully expected to take over as the Seahawks' return man.

Seahawks OG Alvin Bailey has shed 23 pounds.

Absurdly listed at 320, Bailey was playing at "350-plus" in 2014. He's now back down in the 320-330 range. Bailey appeared in 14 games last season, making five starts. He struggled as both a run and a pass blocker, but could be Seattle's starting left guard. He'll face competition in the form of fourth-rounder Mark Glowinski. The Seahawks' other "top" guard is J.R. Sweezy, making for an extremely weak group.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (ACL) has a "chance" at being ready for training camp.

However, coach Pete Carroll admitted the team would be "cautious" with the 2014 second-rounder. Richardson is just four months removed from going under the knife. We'd be shocked if he were ready for camp, and it's a strong possibility he'll begin the regular season on the reserve/PUP list. Carroll is always wildly optimistic with his injury predictions, almost to the point where he can't be taken in the least bit seriously.

Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane has had a setback with his broken arm.

Also recovering from a torn ACL, Lane was already highly doubtful for Week 1. Now he's all but assured of beginning the year on the reserve/PUP list. Will Blackmon is running as the starting nickel back in Lane's absence. It's quite possible Lane misses all of 2015.

Seahawks CB Tharold Simon (shoulder) is sitting out OTAs, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

It's unclear if Simon ever went under the knife, but the Seahawks appear confident that he'll be ready for camp. Free-agent addition Cary Williams, not Simon, is penciled in as a starter opposite Richard Sherman.
May 26 - 5:00 PM

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder surgery) is expected to be ready for the beginning of training camp.

The early line was that Thomas would be ready for Week 1, but he's apparently progressing faster than expected. It still wouldn't be surprising if Thomas opened camp on the PUP list out of an abundance of caution, but his regular-season status is not in doubt.

Seahawks LE Michael Bennett was absent for the start of OTAs on Tuesday.

Deeply dissatisfied with his contract, Bennett recently said he's not back with the Seahawks "just yet" for 2015. Regardless of what Bennett believes, he's not getting traded, and will be a Seahawk come Week 1. It's doubtful his protest will continue through next month's mandatory minicamp.
May 26 - 4:23 PM

Seahawks SLB Bruce Irvin was absent from the start of OTAs on Tuesday.

The contract-year linebacker is furious that the Seahawks declined his fifth-year team option, but coach Pete Carroll has claimed there's no acrimony. This would suggest otherwise. Either way, Irvin's absence will only be notable if it extends to next month's mandatory minicamp.
May 26 - 4:19 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (MCL) has been a full participant in OTAs.

Chancellor played through a torn MCL in the Super Bowl, but is back to full health. Heading into his age-27 season, Chancellor was a second-team All Pro in 2014.
May 26 - 4:16 PM

Richard Sherman (elbow) is participating fully in OTAs.

Sherman was initially tabbed for Tommy John surgery on his left elbow, but opted for rest and rehab instead. It appears his recovery has gone according to plan. Heading into his age-27 season, Sherman is the game's best corner.
May 26 - 4:14 PM

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.
May 18 - 5:32 PM

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.
