Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, Feb. 23 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

The Faces Of The 40

The 40-yard dash is one of the more highly-anticipated drills each year at the NFL Scouting Combine.

The event is a favorite among fans and one visitors of's homepage voted as the workout they were most looking forward to seeing at this year's event from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.

The 40 is all about speed, explosion, and great times. But it's also about funny faces, and that's something on-site photographers managed to capture of each League prospect as they raced 40 yards on the Lucas Oil turf in an attempt to improve their draft stock.

This past week, the NFL's Twitter account sent out a "Faces of the 40" content series depicting the hilarious mid-40 faces of each position group. Check them out in the tweets embedded below.


Early Monday, the Seahawks announced that 1,000 new seats will be added to the south upper concourse of Seattle's CenturyLink Field by the start of the 2015 preseason.

The Toyota Fan Deck includes two new seating sections, a viewing and gathering area, and club-like atmosphere with multiple televisions, food and beverage stands, a fire place, and views of the field.

"The Toyota Fan Deck will give the 12s an enhanced game day experience while allowing us to accommodate some of the growing demand for tickets," Seahawks President Peter McLoughlin said in a statement. "Toyota has been a great partner of the Seahawks since 2006. With their renewed commitment, together we can create this new seating area for the benefit of our amazing Seahawks fans."

Current season-ticket holders will have priority to relocate to the new section. Whatever tickets remain will be doled out to the team's Blue Pride season-ticket waiting list, which is currently capped at 12,000 members.

Cardinals Coach/GM In Arizona Through 2018

The NFC West rival Arizona Cardinals announced Monday that they had reached new deals with head coach Bruce Arians and general manager Steve Keim that will keep both under contract through the 2018 season. Together, Arians and Keim have won 21 games the past two years, earning one trip to the postseason.

"Two years ago we hired Steve and Bruce a few days apart and believed we had something really special," Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill said in a release. "Every day since then they have validated that belief. The team's performance over the last two seasons certainly reflects how talented they are in their respective roles and it was important that we reward them for their accomplishments."

Tweet Of The Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from @nfl, which shares a visual breakdown of University of Connecticut cornerback Byron Jones' broad jump from Monday at the NFL Combine.

Jones' jump measured 12 feet, three inches, setting the all-time record at the event and measuring eight inches better than any broad jump at the combine since 2006. He may have even broke a world record.
