Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Tuesday, August 28 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
ESPN's NFL 100 Best Players
As the upcoming 2018 NFL season approaches, ESPN.com released a ranking of the best 100 players heading into this year's campaign.
Four Seahawks players made the 2018 list: Russell Wilson (19), Earl Thomas (28), Bobby Wagner (37) and Doug Baldwin (68). Here's some of what ESPN's Seahawks reporter Brady Henderson had to say about each player:
Wilson: Wilson led the NFL in touchdown passes last season (34) and was an MVP candidate. The Seahawks hope he won't have to carry as much of the load, but they believe new OC Brian Schottenheimer will make him better.
Thomas: Thomas came back as strong as ever from a broken leg that ended his 2016 season, and he proved in 2017 that he's still one of the league's best safeties.
Wagner: It's a mystery as to why Wagner didn't generate more buzz for DPOY in 2017, when he had one of his best seasons patrolling the middle of the Seattle defense. His 518 tackles over the past four years are the most in the NFL.
Baldwin: Baldwin's 29 touchdown receptions over the past three seasons are second only to Antonio Brown's 31. His skillful releases off the line of scrimmage are a big reason why he has been one of the league's most productive receivers at only 5-foot-10, 192 pounds.
