Fourth-round WR Kevin Norwood has reportedly looked "sensational" early in camp.

Norwood is buried on the depth chart, currently operating in the No. 5 or 6 spot. But it's unlikely the Seahawks will be able to get him through waivers and onto the practice squad, so they'll have to end up making room for him on the 53-man roster. If Norwood can show well on special teams, Ricardo Lockette may lose his job.

Jermaine Kearse has consistently run as a first-team receiver in three-wideout sets at Seahawks camp.

Percy Harvin is playing Z and slot receiver, with Kearse and Doug Baldwin primarily on the perimeter. (Baldwin is playing Golden Tate's old position.) At 6-foot-1, 209 with impressive high-pointing ability, 24-year-old Kearse has a chance to take a step forward this season, and is a sneaky bet to lead Seattle in touchdown receptions. He scored TDs in the NFC title game and Super Bowl 48.

Seahawks placed RB Marshawn Lynch on the Reserve/Did Not Report list.

It's a procedural move and doesn't impact Lynch's status with the team. Lynch is holding out for a raise on his $5.5 million in salary and bonuses. He won't count toward Seattle's 90-man roster and can be activated at any time.

Seahawks waive/injured DT Dewayne Cherrington and signed S Steven Terrell and LB Brandon Denmark.

Terrell signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent in May, but was waived later in the month. Denmark was signed after a tryout with the Packers, but was later released. Marshawn Lynch was placed on the Reserve/Did Not Report list to make room for these moves.

Coach Pete Carroll indicated the Seahawks have no intention of satisfying Marshawn Lynch's contract demands.

It's not even entirely clear what Lynch's demands are, but he's skipping training camp and wants more money. "Just a couple of years back we made a big statement and made a big effort for him and we wish that he was with us now," said Carroll, referring to the four-year, $31 million deal Lynch signed in March of 2012. "But this is a tremendous opportunity for the guys getting their shot. Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, they're ready to go and really fired up about this opportunity and are going to try and take full advantage of it."

Seahawks placed SLB Bruce Irvin (hip surgery) on active/PUP.

Irvin is expected to miss most or all of training camp, with coach Pete Carroll suggesting in June the 2012 first-round pick might not be ready for Week 1. If Irvin isn't ready for the opener, the Seahawks could enter the year with a starting linebacker corps of Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright, and Malcolm Smith.

ESPN's John Clayton predicted on NFL Live that Marshawn Lynch's holdout will last "five to six days at most."

Clayton went as far as to say the Seahawks tentatively expect Lynch to report to training camp next week. Clayton also predicted the team will not satisfy Lynch's contract demands. Lynch is well compensated -- he's owed $5.5 million in salary and bonuses -- and he's a 28-year-old running back. The Seahawks aren't going to pay him with Christine Michael and Robert Turbin in reserve.

Seahawks rookie DB Eric Pinkins will miss 4-6 weeks with a Lisfranc injury.

It sounds like a fracture as opposed to a sprain, but immediately makes Pinkins a candidate to be waived/injured. Pinkins was a sixth-round pick.
Jul 25 - 3:56 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen stated on NFL Insiders the Seahawks are not surprised by Marshawn Lynch's training-camp holdout.

Seattle just gave mammoth deals to Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman, and is trying to build a dynasty that doesn't involve paying big bucks to 28-year-old running backs. We don't see the team budging from its stance, but Lynch could very well cave once he begins racking up fines. "He'll be there at some point, I think," stated Mort. "The Seahawks are not surprised this is an issue."

Seahawks GM John Schneider offered more praise for sophomore RB Christine Michael in an interview with the team's website.

Schneider was pleased with Michael for taking "a noticeable step forward this offseason with his work ethic, focus, and maturity." Asked about replacing Marshawn Lynch, who has elected to hold out, Schneider responded "it's just like we had players at different positions, like Brandon Browner and [Byron] Maxwell steps up and is ready to go." Michael is the Maxwell to Lynch's Browner.

Profootballtalk reports there's a "zero percent chance" Marshawn Lynch reports for the start of Seahawks camp without a new deal, and that the sides have been talking off and on for four months.

Per reporter Mike Florio, the Seahawks have resisted over concerns that they'd set a bad precedent by tearing up a player's contract with two years left. They're right, of course, but we doubt that's their only concern. Now 28, Lynch has racked up a ton of mileage, and has the uber-talented Christine Michael behind him on the depth chart. None of that is to mention that Lynch is already quite fairly compensated for 2014-15.
Jul 24 - 11:51 PM

Seahawks signed WR David Gilreath to a one-year contract.

The ex-Steeler was briefly on the Raiders earlier this offseason. The move doesn't move the needle. Gilreath isn't going to make the team.
Jul 24 - 9:40 PM

Seahawks signed OG C.J. Davis.

He'll be a camp body for the Super Bowl champs. Davis was waived by the Broncos at final cuts last season, and spent the year out of the league. He appeared in seven games for Denver in 2012, and seven for Carolina in 2010.
Jul 24 - 9:03 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks "still don’t plan on" paying holdout RB Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch has griped all offseason, but his contract complaints have fallen on deaf ears. His $5.5 million salary is more than fair for a 28-year-old running back, while the Seahawks have Christine Michael and Robert Turbin waiting in the wings. Lynch has more to lose than gain by holding out, as he's extremely unlikely to get paid, while Michael could shine in his absence.
Jul 24 - 7:42 PM

Marshawn Lynch will hold out of Seahawks training camp as he seeks a new contract.

Bizarrely, the news was broken by ex-teammate Michael Robinson on NFL Network's Inside Training Camp Live. Lynch has made noise about his contract all offseason, but it's still a surprise after he reported to June minicamp. Perhaps emboldened by Jamaal Charles' successful "holdout," Lynch is going to find the Seahawks much less likely to cave than the Chiefs. He has his age and the presence of Christine Michael and Robert Turbin behind him to thank. Now 28, Lynch is due a reasonable $5 million this season, with another $500,000 available through per-game roster bonuses. At least for the moment, Lynch's mid-second round ADP is no longer looking like a potential bargain.
