Seahawks re-signed RB Mike Davis to a one-year contract.

Seattle somewhat surprisingly declined to tender Davis as a restricted free agent, but despite him taking a visit with the Rams, they ended up getting him back on what is likely a cheaper deal. Davis played relatively well late last season, but the Seahawks should look to bring in a better option during the draft.

Seahawks signed OG D.J. Fluker, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract.

Fluker began his career at tackle but has spent the last three seasons playing exclusively at right guard. He struggled to stay healthy in his lone year with the Giants, missing most of the second half with a toe injury. The former first-round pick has consistently earned negative marks from ProFootballFocus but brings solid starting experience at a position of need for Seattle.

Seahawks acquired CB C.J. Smith from the Browns in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2020.

Smith played only nine snaps for last year's Browns, but the Seahawks are taking a flyer on him for his athleticism. A 2016 undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State, Smith stands 5-foot-11, 188 and jumped 39 inches vertically with an explosive 10-foot-11 broad jump at his Pro Day. The Seahawks are shallow at corner behind Shaq Griffin and Justin Coleman.

Free agent RB Mike Davis is visiting the Rams on Monday.

Despite a fairly successful run as a starter late in the season, the Seahawks declined to tender Davis as a restricted free agent, allowing him to test the market. He would compete for a backup job with the Rams.

Seahawks signed S Maurice Alexander.

Seattle also added CB Akeem King. Alexander spent most of last year out of the league after getting waived in Week 5. He adds depth to a secondary that could be without Kam Chancellor. Alexander will face competition from 2017 mid-rounders Delano Hill and Tedric Thompson for a roster spot.
Mar 17 - 6:34 PM

Seahawks signed WR Jaron Brown, formerly of the Cardinals.

Brown, 28, set career highs across the board last season with a 31-477-4 receiving line a year after tearing his ACL. In Seattle, Brown figures to have an expanded role after being the No. 4 receiver in the desert. Brown should start outside opposite Tyler Lockett, with Doug Baldwin staying in the slot.
Mar 16 - 11:25 PM

Seahawks signed TE Ed Dickson, formerly of the Panthers, to a three-year contract.

The deal is worth "up to" $14 million with the first year fully guaranteed. With Jimmy Graham gone to Green Bay and No. 2 TE Luke Willson still a free agent and visiting the Jaguars, Dickson is currently the Seahawks' starter. Dickson blocked on over 56% of his snaps last season in Carolina and composed a 31-440-1 receiving line. He'll help shore up the Seattle run game.
Mar 16 - 12:00 PM

Free agent WR Jaron Brown will visit the Seahawks on Thursday.

Brown is hoping to cash in after setting career-highs in catches (31), receiving yards (477) and touchdowns (four) with Arizona last year. The Seahawks could certainly use a pass-catcher after losing Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham in free agency. Brown could be viewed as a fallback for Seattle if Jordy Nelson signs elsewhere.

Free agent OG D.J. Fluker will visit the Seahawks on Thursday.

Fluker drew a handful of starts at right guard last season before a toe injury landed him on I.R. Seattle needs all the help it can get on the offensive line, but Fluker wouldn't be much of an improvement.
Mar 15 - 10:23 AM

Seahawks signed OLB/DE Barkevious Mingo to a two-year, $6.8 million contract.

Mingo had one of his better seasons with the Colts last year, starting six games (501 snaps) and grading out positively as a pass rusher. He's another project for the Seahawks after they got a career year from Dion Jordan in 2017. Mingo should get most of his playing time as a rotational end in Seattle's 4-3 scheme.

Seahawks declined to tender restricted free agent RB Mike Davis.

Seattle also declined to tender Thomas Rawls. The Davis move is somewhat surprising after the former fourth-round pick showed well in six late-season starts, especially since the low tender ($1.9 million) would have been enough to keep him. Perhaps the Seahawks plan to re-sign him to a smaller deal, but it looks like they are attempting to completely rebuild the position.
Mar 14 - 5:33 PM

The Seahawks have tendered restricted free agent DE Dion Jordan at the original-round level.

The "original-round" in this case is the first. It means the Seahawks can tender Jordan for an affordable $1.9 million while protecting themselves from a team trying to sign Jordan away. Coach Pete Carroll raved about Jordan at his season-ending presser, saying he would be a "big factor" in the team's 2018 line. That was only made more clear by the Seahawks' trade of Michael Bennett and decision to let Sheldon Richardson reach the open market. A former first-round mega bust, Jordan notched four sacks on just 135 snaps last season. He turned 28 earlier this month. He's looking like a better-late-than-never prospect.
Mar 14 - 4:32 PM

Free agent TE Ed Dickson will visit the Seahawks.

With only Nick Vannett and Tyrone Swoopes on the roster, the Seahawks are searching high and low on the open market as they look to replace Jimmy Graham. They have also hosted Austin Seferian-Jenkins. 30-year-old Dickson is a blocker who can catch passes in a pinch.
Mar 14 - 3:19 PM

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports the Falcons have expressed "strong" interest in free agent TE Ed Dickson.

Atlanta is looking for more of a blocking option to pair with Austin Hooper following the release of Levine Toilolo. Dickson would certainly fit the bill. The tight end has also been linked with the Dolphins, and ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Packers are interested as well.

Seahawks tendered restricted free agent CB Justin Coleman at the second-round level.

The second-round tender is worth $2.914 million. Going undrafted in 2015, Coleman was acquired from the Patriots last offseason and played a career-high 654 snaps in 2017. He'll likely again be a big part of the defense.
