ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount said LT Russell Okung could be entering his final year in Seattle unless he shows he can stay healthy.

Set to count $7.28 million against the 2015 cap, Okung is one of many tough, salary-cap decisions the Seahawks have on the horizon. He has missed 19 games due to injury in his four-year career, and was sidelined during spring practices recovering from foot surgery. Okung has been solid when healthy, but he needs to stay on the field to justify his cap number.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount said Marshawn Lynch could be entering his final season in Seattle.

The writing appears to be on the wall. With Russell Wilson due a huge extension, Lynch's $9 million cap hit in 2015 could be too much for Seattle to swallow, especially with an elite talent like Christine Michael waiting in the wings. With 987 carries over the past three years, there is also the possibility Lynch's body begins to break down as soon as this season. Lynch will be the starter this year, but his future in Seattle is in doubt.

Coach Pete Carroll said he was worried DT Jesse Williams was "done" after last season.

Williams battled chronic knee issues as he came out of Alabama last year, landing on injured reserve before his rookie NFL season even started. But he's rehabbed hard, and now Carroll believes he'll be able to battle for a roster spot behind Kevin Williams and Brandon Mebane.

Seahawks LG James Carpenter confirmed he's down to 327 pounds.

Carpenter has struggled with conditioning throughout his career, but reported to minicamp in "great shape" and has received positive reports this offseason. Seattle declined Carpenter's 2015 option, so he has a chance to reestablish his value in a contract year. Carpenter managed to stay healthy for all 16 games for the first time last season. He's the favorite to start at left guard over Alvin Bailey.

Bleacher Report's Dan Pompei reports Seahawks rookie DE Cassius Marsh will be used at both three- and five-technique.

"The plan for Marsh in Seattle is to bulk him up to about 275 pounds," said Pompei. "And he is likely to line up as a 5-technique on first and second downs and as a 3-technique on nickel downs." Marsh is currently penciled in as Michael Bennett's backup, but he reportedly put on a show during spring practice and could earn a bigger role during training camp. Marsh has a shot to be an early contributor despite Seattle's depth along the defensive line.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Tony McDaniel will replace Red Bryant at five-technique defensive end.

McDaniel is similarly big, long (6'7/320), and difficult to move, and his 2013 performance suggests he could be an upgrade on Bryant versus the run. In Seattle's 4-3 under scheme, "five technique" is a pure run-stopping position, where the player occupies blocks and sets the edge. The Seahawks will get pass rush from Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, and Kevin Williams, among others.

Percy Harvin won't participate in three straight days of practices during training camp.

Harvin is completely healthy and says he feels the best he has since high school. But the Seahawks know he's a fragile piece that has participated in three of his teams' last 25 games. They'll wisely aim for preservation during camp and then unleash Harvin as a dynamic YAC player in the regular season.

Former Seahawks FB Michael Robinson confirmed Marshawn Lynch still wants a raise despite reporting to last week's mandatory minicamp.

Robinson has often been the spokesman for the reserved Lynch. "The guy has been the face of this franchise since the day he stepped in that door, it's been Beast Mode. ... And he's just like 'I just want to be paid like it,'" Robinson said. Lynch has watched Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas sign new contracts totaling $103 million this offseason and his window to get paid is closing, but he simply has no leverage. 28-year-old running backs with a $5M base salary and elite talents behind them (Christine Michael) don't get new deals.

Seahawks second-year DE Benson Mayowa has added weight this offseason in an effort to stand up against the run.

Mayowa displayed pass rush skills as a rookie, but his lack of size made him a liability against the run and almost unusable along the defensive line. Now weighing in at 255, Mayowa will be better suited to stand up against the run and should still be able to utilize his quickness to get to the quarterback on passing downs. Mayowa is unlikely to win a job outright in camp, but he should carve out a role as a rotational lineman.

ESPN 710 Seattle reports Seahawks CB Tharold Simon has "generated more buzz than any player over the past month."

With Walter Thurmond and Brandon Browner gone, Simon is competing for Seattle's nickel corner job. Third-year CB Jeremy Lane and Phillip Adams are also in the mix. If Simon wins the job, Byron Maxwell would likely move inside in sub-packages. Simon is a potential breakout candidate in Seattle's Cover-3. He spent 2013 sidelined with a foot injury.

Seahawks QB Terrelle Pryor isn't interested in learning a new position.

"I don’t know how to catch," Pryor said. "I don’t know how to run the ball as a running back. I’ve been a quarterback my whole life." At 6-foot-4, 233 pounds with 4.4 wheels, Pryor is one of the most imposing athletes in the entire NFL, but too rudimentary of a passer to ever be a starting quarterback. Trying out for a "slash" role would likely increase his 53-man roster odds, but like Tim Tebow, Pryor wants to stick at the only position he's ever known. Were Pryor to be cut loose by the world-champion Seahawks, someone else would likely pounce on him as a reserve.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects Sidney Rice (knee) to be ready for training camp, but perhaps not by "day one."

Rice ran routes in minicamp, but the Seahawks are playing things safe with his rehab. Rice could be an important role player in the Seahawks' receiver corps, but any 2014 contributions should be considered a bonus. Rice has missed at least seven games in three of the past four seasons.

Marshawn Lynch sat out Tuesday's minicamp session with a minor ankle injury, and isn't expected to practice this week.

Coach Pete Carroll also downplayed Lynch's OTAs absence, and hinted his bell-cow back will see limited action in the preseason in an effort to remain fresh. Lynch is expected to cede some work to talented second-year pro Christine Michael this season, but remains locked in as an RB1/2 for fantasy purposes.

Marshawn Lynch reported to Seahawks mandatory minicamp on Tuesday.

Beast Mode was a no-show for voluntary OTAs earlier this month. Entering the third year of a four-year, $31 million deal, Lynch wants to re-work his contract. According to an ESPN report, Lynch believes if he shows up for minicamp, the team will negotiate with him in good faith. We don't see Lynch getting his wish.

Marshawn Lynch would leave $7 million in 2014 compensation on the table by retiring.

Lynch is owed a $5 million salary, $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses, and $1.5 million in a prorated signing bonus. It's a lot of cheese to leave on the table -- especially for someone that started this whole mess because he wants more money. The Seahawks are almost certainly going to cut Lynch in 2015, so we can't blame him for trying to get more money now, but he has no leverage. The retirement threats are extremely transparent.
