Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Jeremy Lane is the early favorite to start opposite Richard Sherman.

"Jeremy has really applied himself," said Carroll. "He sees the opportunity. Across the board, everybody’s evaluation is that he’s really focused, really tuned in, he’s really ready to go for it." Lane is coming off a disastrious 2016, getting exposed as a tackler and grading near the bottom of PFF's ratings. Scheme familiarity and veteran status are working in his favor with Deshawn Shead (knee) sidelined. Rookie Shaq Griffin will push Lane in training camp.

Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell said Russell Wilson is "all the way back."

One of the league's top scramblers, Wilson rushed for a career-low 259 yards last season and was mostly confined to the pocket while battling knee and ankle injuries. Now that he's had time to recover, Wilson is looking like himself again. "His throws have good zip and he is showing good command," said Bevell after minicamp. Wilson should bounce back in a big way this year.

Seahawks WR Tanner McEvoy suffered a toe injury that recently required surgery.

McEvoy now has a slimmer chance to crack the 53-man roster after missing the past few weeks with a bone removal in his big toe. With Tyler Lockett, Jermaine Kearse, and McEvoy missing time, third-year WR Kasen Williams has worked with the first team alongside Doug Baldwin and Paul Richardson. McEvoy and Williams are competing for one of the final roster spots.

Seahawks signed third-round CB Shaq Griffin to a four-year contract.

Griffin was selected with the No. 90 overall pick out of Central Florida. The Seahawks might need him to start at right cornerback as a rookie with CB Deshawn Shead (ACL) unlikely to be ready Week 1. Griffin will be someone to attack early in the season opposite of LCB Richard Sherman. The Seahawks open the season against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Green Bay.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll reiterated RCB Deshawn Shead (ACL) is unlikely to be ready for Week 1.

"I don't think so, I don't think we'll be pushing that," said Carroll. Shead tore his ACL in the Divisional Round after a breakout season opposite Richard Sherman. Jeremy Lane is markered in as Shead's replacement in the starting lineup, but Lane covers the slot in sub-packages. The Seahawks need third-round pick Shaq Griffin to step up as a starter at the other boundary position.

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman denies having requesting a trade.

Sherman also said he was "not upset" the Seahawks allegedly considered trading him, adding reports of locker-room division in Seattle are "overblown." Sherman took ownership for last year's repeated sideline rants, admitting he "might have gone over the top." Sherman has two years left on his contract.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll believes Tyler Lockett (leg) could be "full speed" for training camp.

Speaking Tuesday at minicamp, Carroll said Lockett had made a "big jump" in the past week. Lockett's preseason status is still questionable, but it's looking likely he'll be ready to rock for Week 1.

Contract-year SS Kam Chancellor says he's yet to have extension talks with the Seahawks.

Coach Pete Carroll said the team would like to change that. Now 29, Chancellor has had some injury issues in recent years, but his play hasn't fallen off at all. Third-round S Delano Hill looms as a potential replacement, however.

Seahawks DE Dion Jordan is recovering from a "clean-up" knee operation, and is without a date for a return.

Jordan's Week 1 status is "unclear." It's bad news for a player who missed all of 2016 with knee issues. The injury significantly dents Jordan's odds of making the 53-man roster. It's possible the Seahawks end up stashing him on the reserve/PUP list, buying some time to assess his fit on the team.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas says he thought his career was over when he broke his leg in December.

It's why Thomas sent his dramatic retirement tweet. "It's very different, especially it's my foundation, my legs," Thomas said of his first serious injury. "I'm a speedster. So when I initially broke it, I'm like, 'Dang, my career's over with.' ... But as you go through it, you learn, you understand that you can bounce back. And that's where I'm at at this point." Thomas is expected to be ready for training camp.

Eddie Lacy's next weigh-in is on Monday.

This will be the second of Lacy's seven weigh-ins. He'll hit a $55,000 incentive if he weighs under 250 pounds. Lacy met his first goal last month, checking in two pounds below his target weight of 255. The ex-Packer recently began the P90X 30-day challenge in an effort to shed weight.

FanRag's Roy Cummings speculates the Seahawks could franchise contract-year TE Jimmy Graham in 2018.

Graham rebounded to Pro Bowl form last season, ranking behind only Travis Kelce and Greg Olsen in yards while grading as a top-five PFF tight end. Seattle picked up his $2 million roster bonus in March, but there’s been no talk on his post-2017 future. Despite GM John Schneider's history of not using the franchise tag, Graham’s salary and knee issues are sticking points in an extension. Tagging Graham would pay him slightly lower than this year's $10 million cap hit.

Tyler Lockett (leg) was cleared for individual drills at OTAs.

It’s a good sign for his training camp status. Lockett is ahead of schedule, but there's still some hurdles to clear. It's possible he'll be held out of the preseason. The Seahawks expect to have Lockett for Week 1.
Jun 10 - 6:07 PM

Seahawks signed second-round C Ethan Pocic to a four-year contract.

The Seahawks have now signed nine of their 11 draft picks. Pocic played center at LSU but is expected to compete for a starting job at right guard this summer.
