Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what out there for today – Monday, March 22 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Recapping Week 1 Of Free Agency
The new league year started last week, which means we're now through the first week of free agency and the flurry of moves that come with it. The Seahawks were quiet on the first day of free agency, but got plenty done last week, including one trade, two free-agency additions, and the re-signing of a few of their own free agents.
You can keep track of all the moves at Seahawks.com on our free agency tracker.
As for what folks are saying about Seattle's moves, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times offers grades on the Seahawks’ first week of free agency, and notes that while the Seahawks weren't major players in the initial wave of free agency, "they did at least take part, fulfilling a couple of big needs along the way."
Michael Shawn-Dugar of the Athletic looks at where Seattle’s roster stands after the first week of moves, and what needs still need to be filled.
SI.com also grades the Seahawks’ moves from the past week, giving out mostly positive marks.
ESPN's league-wide free-agency grades include some Seahawks moves, and ESPN likes the addition of Gerald Everett, giving it an A-, saying, "This is incredible value for a player some evaluators consider a fringe top-10 talent at tight end. He hasn't put it all together yet, serving as more of a situational tight end behind Tyler Higbee in Los Angeles. But Seattle is counting on new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, who was with Everett in L.A., to unlock his enormous potential."
