Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson looked like the latest player to go out with a severe injury last night, appearing to hurt his ankle. Turns out it was a knee sprain, and it wasn't as bad as it looked.
Video of Carson's injury went around the Twitterverse, sparking debates on whether Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill committed a dirty hit. Looked like it to me, tbh.
Carson will have an MRI today to determine the severity of the injury, but this is the best-case scenario for Seattle.
Defensive tackle Damon Harrison is visiting the Seattle Seahawks next week, hoping to land a spot after contemplating retirement.
This is a classic case of, "I'm gonna say I'm gonna retire until a contending team says they want to sign me," and I applaud it.
Of the teams interested, Seattle is the one I would pick if I wanted to win a Super Bowl before retirement. The Seahawks are also dealing with plenty of injuries on the defensive line, so it's a win-win situation here.
The New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks play each other this Sunday, probably my favorite game this week. When asked about said game, head coach Bill Belichick had nothing but good things to say about his opposing quarterback Russell Wilson, including that he's "underrated."
I'm not sure if it's just me or what, but something like this (something pleasant) coming out of Belichick's mouth always catches me off guard. Of course, Belichick is hardly ever wrong, as well.
Wilson has won two out of three matchups with the Patriots -- the one loss being in the Super Bowl.
While reports were swirling not too long ago that the Seattle Seahawks had some interest in free agent Jadeveon Clowney, it seems they have turned their attention to two other free agents -- Clay Matthews and Everson Griffen.
While still no one really knows what the heck is up with Clowney, this makes the most sense for Seattle. I'd personally like to see Matthews there -- he can still continue to play at a high level when healthy. Seattle is clearly looking to bolster its defense -- they recently traded for safety Jamal Adams, and Matthews can do a good job without breaking the bank.
Matthews most recently played for the Los Angeles Rams, before becoming a free agent this spring.
That was quick. After being cut in July, defensive end Branden Jackson is being re-signed by the Seattle Seahawks.
The oldest trick in the book is the ol' cut-and-re-sign-for-cheap trick. Look for Jackson to sign a cheaper, more team-friendly deal. Seattle saved just over $2 million against the cap with his release.
Jadeveon Clowney has been a free agent since March, still hasn't signed anywhere, and it looks like we're going to find out where he will sign by process of elimination. The latest team to scrap Clowney plans -- the New York Jets.
After being traded from the Seattle Seahawks, safety Bradley Mcdougald said he'd love to see Clowney on his new team. However, that doesn't seem to be in the plans as of right now.
This year has been tough for all free agents, especially those coming off an injury, but it's getting down to the wire here for Clowney.
Perfect spot for him to land right now, in my opinion is the Tennessee Titans. Worry about Vic Beasley later, sign Clowney now.
