Seahawks UDFA QB Trevone Boykin has avoided jail time in his assault case.

As part of a plea deal, Boykin pled no contest to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest. He's been fined $1,500, and sentenced to one year probation. The Seahawks have insisted Boykin is a legitimate candidate to back up Russell Wilson. Right now, his only "competition" is 2015 UDFA Jake Heaps. It's possible, if not likely, a veteran is either signed or acquired.

Seahawks signed WR Doug Baldwin to a four-year, $46 million extension through 2020.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports it includes $24.25 million guaranteed. It makes Baldwin one of the highest-paid second-tier receivers in the league, and is a nice middle ground after Baldwin exploded for an unrepeatable 14 touchdowns in 2015. Baldwin, who turns 28 in September, is now locked up through his age-32 campaign. Baldwin is the Seahawks' clear-cut No. 1 wideout, but could face a run for his money from Tyler Lockett as early as this season.

Seahawks UDFA QB Trevone Boykin has been charged with assault in Texas in relation to the December incident that got him suspended from the Alamo Bowl.

An intoxicated Boykin allegedly assaulted a police officer. The Seahawks obviously knew of the incident when they signed Boykin in May. Both coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider have compared Boykin to Russell Wilson, and insist he has a chance to earn No. 2 duties in camp.

Seahawks third-round RB C.J. Prosise missed "most" of the offseason program with a hip issue.

Coach Pete Carroll said the team is anxious to see more of Prosise, but confirmed they have a "big plan" for him. "He is a very natural football player, he is a tremendous athlete, he catches the ball well, he runs good routes, he does a lot of really cool things and we know he is an explosive runner," Carroll said. "We are really excited about it, but we are going to need to have to have a really good camp for him." Prosise has the inside track to third-down duties.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said third-round TE Nick Vannett exceeded expectations in the offseason program.

Carroll had previously praised Vannett as a blocking prospect, but came away impressed with his receiving ability. "(We) knew that he could catch the ball and all that, but he’s a very natural catcher," Carroll said. "He shows the savvy and instincts that you hope a guy has. I know Russell (Wilson) has really clicked into him." Despite Carroll's words, Vannett is a pedestrian athlete who caught only 19 passes as a senior at Ohio State. His Dynasty future isn't terribly bright.

Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable believes RT J'Marcus Webb can have the "best year of [his] career."

"And what I mean by that, he’s kind of been up and down," Cable said. "It’s about getting someone to believe in him, and that’s my job, and in getting him to believe in himself. And if those two things can marry up right, I think this kid can really, really do something cool for us." One of the best position coaches in the league, Cable's presence has allowed the personnel department to almost ignore the offensive line. That team-building strategy backfired last season, and Cable will have to work several miracles to field an above-average unit this year. Perhaps coaxing a good season out of Webb will be one of his magic tricks.

Coach Pete Carroll said Tyler Lockett is "right in the middle of all our planning."

Carroll recently confirmed Lockett was a starter, but this goes a bit further. Even with his role secure, Lockett is not sitting on his laurels. He spent the offseason program working on his deep-ball chemistry with Russell Wilson and his ability to get off press coverage, using his practice matchup with Richard Sherman to get better in both areas. It will be extremely difficult for Lockett to replicate his efficiency from last season, but a bump in targets could help him reach new fantasy heights.

Seahawks.com reporter John Boyle expects Kevin Smith, Kasen Williams and Douglas McNeil to compete for the final wide receiver spot at training camp.

Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson (assuming he's healthy) will all be on the roster, leaving Smith, Williams and McNeil to battle for one or two spots. Smith should enter camp as the favorite. He outsnapped Williams 215 to 39 last season while earning five targets compared to just one for Williams. McNeil never saw the field in 2015 after joining Seattle's practice squad late in the year.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Mike Morgan would start at strongside linebacker if the season started today.

"Mike Mo brings all the experience and so he would start if we had to start a game today, he’s just ahead of the other guys," Carroll said. "But both Cassius [Marsh] and [Eric Pinkins] have done a great job of battling and those guys are getting a great shot." In addition to the names Carroll mentioned, Kevin Pierre-Louis and Frank Clark could get a shot at Bruce Irvin's old role. The competition is as wide open as competitions can be entering camp.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Russell Wilson has "made a clear step ahead" this offseason.

"His command is all-time," said Carroll. "We saw him throw the ball all over the field throughout the offseason and he's been strong and accurate and really precise about stuff. He has had a great offseason." Wilson let it rip last year, setting new career-highs in attempts (483), completions (329), touchdowns (34) and passing yards (4,024). He's a top-five QB1 pick for 2016.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed following minicamp that Tyler Lockett is "a starting wide receiver for us."

Despite the re-signing of Jermaine Kearse, Lockett will be elevated to an every-down role after playing behind Doug Baldwin and Kearse as a rookie. Lockett made the All-Pro team as a kick returner but "started" just 8-of-18 games. He scored six of his seven receiving TDs after the Week 9 bye and averaged a robust 14.1 YPR. Lockett has breakout upside at his sixth-/seventh-round ADP.

The Seahawks are emphasizing "pursuit and effort" this offseason.

The Seahawks forced a modest 23 turnovers last season, good for just 15th in the league. They created 39 in 2013, and 24 in 2014. "You can never be good enough in pursuit and chasing the football and effort," coach Pete Carroll said. "There’s not a time when you nail it. Every day you have to come back to it."

Coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks' 2016 offense will resemble its form in the second half of last year.

"Our rhythm throughout camp, we stayed connected to what we did in the second half of the year,’’ Carroll said. "We went in determined to do that, and right from the get-go when we got back here on the field we were at it with tempo and timing." Long a run-foundation team, the Seahawks embraced more spread concepts and a ball-out-quick passing game following their Week 9 bye. Russell Wilson compiled a 24:1 TD-to-INT ratio in the final seven weeks.

Seahawks RB Christine Michael says he's dropped eight pounds to get down to 217, and "feels a lot quicker."

Might Michael finally be getting serious about the game? With his roster spot far from assured, Michael seems to realize he can't cut any corners this season. The Dynasty-league legend is fighting for a role behind Thomas Rawls and rookie C.J. Prosise. Rawls' ankle will play a factor.
Jun 16 - 8:55 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the team is trying to hammer out a contract extension with walk-year WR Doug Baldwin.

"Hopefully, eventually we'll get something worked out," Carroll said. "The intent is to get him signed and secured for a good while." The sides have talked on and off this offseason, with Baldwin embracing the possibility. Coming off a 14-touchdown season, Baldwin probably understands he should strike while the iron is hot. The Seahawks, meanwhile, are almost certainly leery of overpaying. It could be a while before a deal is finalized.
