Seahawks notebook. Seattle seeks depth of O-line, opens hat space in Tyler Locket deal

When the NFL went through the first wave of free agency, much of the roster building was about what would eventually become the list of 90 players on the training camp.

So it turns out that on Wednesday the Seahawks are receiving visits from two veteran offensive linemen who will probably fight for reserve points – Chance Warmack և Danny Isidora.

Warmack’s name may be familiar as he signed with Seattle last year before deciding to quit the season and then the Sehawks were released after the season.

But the idea was that Seattle would be interested in Warmak’s return, assuming that his visit would go well, that he would likely return.

Warmack, who was reportedly visiting ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, was the 10th Tennessee 2013 recruiter of 46 appearances in the right wing during his first three years in the NFL.

But Warmack, who played in Alabama, has only played five games since 2015; He sat down to recover from the 2019 season, before giving up last year for COVID-19 reasons.

Warmack, however, is only 29 years old, և the Seahawks could have seen him as a good insurance policy, standing behind the projected starting guard, Gabe Jackson և Damien Lewis.

Seattle is also reportedly visiting Isidora, which left Miami in the fifth round of the Vikings in 2017. He started six games in his NFL career, including three against Miami in 2019. Last year, he played in the reserve role of only one game with the leaders.

Isidora’s visit on Wednesday was officially marked as a test of the NFL deal.

For the 2021 season, Seattle has 62 players under contract, 12 of whom are on the offensive line.

But with only three choices in the project at the moment, Seattle may have to rely heavily on free agents, veterans or newcomers, to fill the rest of the repertoire.

Details of Lockett’s contract have been revealed

The full details of the contract extension signed by Tyler Lockett were released on Wednesday և really show that the Seahawks were able to save a lot of space along the way in 2021.

The Lockett expansion keeps him in Seattle for the 2025 season և includes a $ 24 million full guaranteed և $ 37 total guarantee.

By restarting the deal, with a bonus amount of $ 34.225 million over five years, the Seahawks were able to reduce the number of Lockett hats in 2021 from $ 14.95 million to $ 8.05 million, according to ESPN.

As of Wednesday, Seattle owed $ 9.3 million, according to the NFLPA General Public Wage Report. But that does not include the Al Woods line of defense, which was reportedly to sign a one-year deal worth up to $ 3 million.

Lockett’s salary is $ 2 million, $ 3 million, $ 9.7 million, $ 15.3 million և $ 15.3 million for a transaction that totals $ 17.25 million over five years which is the tenth highest rate for annual recipients, according to OvertheCap. com.

The dead money և hat savings figures mean that Lockett would not logically give up until the 2024 season, but probably not until 2025 (assuming Seattle would like to do so even then).

Lockett’s deal also includes a $ 13 million optional bonus in 2022.

Lockett, who turns 29 in September, could earn more than $ 80 million if he works during the life of the deal.

Seattle recently revised its Naxon Exxon contract in 2021. Increasing the number of hats from $ 9.6 million to $ 4.1 million. That means the two moves saved Seattle about $ 12.5 million against the hat.

Randall hints that he has re-signed

Last year, Damarious Randall, a special member of the Security Reserve, hinted on Twitter on Tuesday night that he would return to the Seahawks. Posting: A gift of the Seahawks mascot blitz gifts with the caption “Let’s get to work”.

Last year, Randall played 10 games for Seattle: 35 defenses, 69 in special teams.

Randall was the first-round pick of the Packers in Arizona in 2015, the 30th overall.
