The Seahawks are coached by Pete Carroll. Since 2002, they have played their home games at CenturyLink Field (formerly Qwest Field), located south of downtown Seattle.

    2019 Seahawks Schedule: Seattle has been almost unbeatable at CenturyLink Field in September

    Over the past two seasons, the Seattle Seahawks found themselves on the road in Week 1 and proceeded to lose. They have been one of the worst September road teams in the NFL for more than a decade. But at home, more specifically the fortress we now know as CenturyLink Field? It's been as dominant as you might expect. Dating back to 2002, when “Seahawks Stadium” first opened for business, Seattle is a staggering 26-3 in the opening month of the regular season. That's the second-most wins in the league during that span, and the .897 win percentage edges out the Denver Broncos (who are 29-4). Those three losses came against the Arizona Cardinals in 2002 (in the team's first home game at CLink),

    Russell Wilson's contract: No frills, lots of up-front cash - Seattle Seahawks Blog- ESPN

    As the April 15 deadline for Russell Wilson's contract approached, condensing what would have been months of speculation into a few weeks, there were (unfounded) rumors that he wanted to play elsewhere and (accurate) reports that his agent was seeking an unprecedented mechanism that would have tied the quarterback's annual compensation to the salary cap. The outcome, though, was the most predictable one all along: Wilson staying with the Seattle Seahawks -- and doing so on a conventionally structured contract. Details of his four-year, $140 million extension provided to ESPN by league sources confirm as much. As reported, a $65 million signing bonus makes up more than half of the $107 million in overall guarantees.

    Seahawks' K.J. Wright on free agency, coming back from 2018 knee injury

    Seahawks' linebacker K.J. Wright entered free agency for the first time in his eight year career in March — but fortunately for both Wright and the Seahawks, that trip didn't last long. Wright joined Danny, Dave and Moore on 710 ESPN Seattle Friday to talk about what it felt like to be a free agent, his decision to re-sign with Seattle, and what it was like to have his best performance of an injury-plagued season in the playoffs. “It did feel like I left, and that whole stretch from January to March, I kind of separated myself, because I was like, 'It may not happen,'” Wright said of free agency. “But I'm back in the building and they found a way to make me happy… The linebacker signed a two-year,

    Report: Seahawks open to trading Frank Clark, but want 'at least a first-round pick' included

    We're less than a week away from the 2019 NFL Draft, and the future of Seattle Seahawks DR Frank Clark is very much in doubt. Having developed into a standout pass-rusher in 2018, Clark was given the franchise tag (one-year, $17.1 million) by the Seahawks in lieu of a long-term deal. There has been discussion that Clark may be on the trading block, and ESPN's Adam Schefter did report on Saturday that if Seattle does send Clark elsewhere, they want something big in return. Clark racked up a career-high 13 sacks last season, and has 32 dating back to 2016. With Cliff Avril forced into retirement and Michael Bennett traded in the previous offseason, the former Michigan Wolverine became the main

    Seahawks may have a hard time restocking their post-LOB secondary

    Brady Henderson ESPN As a practical matter, the end for the Legion of Boom came last November, when All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas rode off the field in Arizona with his broken leg in an air cast and his middle finger extended toward the Seattle Seahawks' sideline. But Thomas' widely expected free-agent departure in March brought finality to a transition from one of the most loaded secondaries in NFL history to one that no longer has a single player with a Pro Bowl on his résumé. Right before Thomas signed with Baltimore, Seattle also lost Justin Coleman to Detroit, which made him the NFL's highest-paid nickelback. In perhaps any other year, restocking their secondary with playmakers in the

    Kyler Murray is top prospect in 2019 draft, per Doug Farrar

    Throughout the weeks and months leading up to the 2019 NFL draft, it has been said almost universally that the best player in the draft is either Ohio State's Nick Bosa or Alabama's Quinnen Williams. The Arizona Cardinals, who hold the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, would do well to select either one of them. However, everyone largely expects them to take Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray. Most say he is the best quarterback in the draft but not the best player. Siste site Touchdown Wire's Doug Farrar disagrees. He believes Murray is the No. 1 prospect in the entire draft. In his evaluation, Farrar notes really the only concern for Murray is his size. He has proven that not to be a negative his entire

    GM John Schneider updates where things stand with Frank Clark, Bobby Wagner, Doug Baldwin

    The hard work of an NFL offseason never really stops anymore. Getting Russell Wilson's future secure may have been job one for Seahawks general manager John Schneider this spring, but there is still an awful lot left in his inbox, including the NFL draft next week, and figuring out whether to re-sign the likes of Frank Clark, Bobby Wagner and Jarran Reed. Schneider took a brief break from it all Thursday night, though, to host, along with his wife Traci, his annual charity dinner and auction for Ben's Fund, which is named after the couple's son and provides financial support for families impacted by autism. Clark has been the subject of much discussion this offseason after being slapped with a franchise tag in March that would pay him $17.1 million for the 2019 season.

    NFL Draft: The meanings and motives of pre-draft meetings and visits

    We're nearly there. No, I'm not talking about the latest Avengers movie releasing next week. I'm referring to the Draft endgame that commences next Thursday. Despite such close proximity to hearing “The Seattle Seahawks are on the clock” and the glorious bell jingle, there is one area I still don't properly understand. What do meetings and prospect visits actually mean? Fans and analysts get excited whenever their team is reported to have met with a player, particularly if it's their draft crush. The rumors drive the pre-draft media cycle. In my first year attending the Senior Bowl, I hungrily tweeted about players I could see sitting down with teams in the lobby of the Renaissance Riverview
