Seattle Seahawks Free Agency Tracker

Well so far the Seahawks haven’t done a whole lot in free agency. They have re-signed Michael Bennett. The Seahawks have also signed WR Taylor Price, who hasn’t play in two year due to injuries.

The Seattle Seahawks have lost many veteran players that were big parts in the Super Bowl 48 win. This list includes, Golden Tate, Walter Thurmond and Clinton McDonald. They have also cut Chris Clemons, Red Bryant and Sidney Rice.

Despite these losses the Seahawks are in great shape for next season. John Schneider and Pete Carroll have a plan that will work out in the end.

Here are three of the players that are still on the market that the Seahawks have shown interest in. If the Seahawks can get all three of these players, then that would be spectacular.

Jermichael Finley, TE, Green Bay Packers:
The Seahawks had Finley in for a visit last week. It sounds like they are going to sign him, but need to wait for medical clearance first. Finley had spinal surgery this past year after suffering a near career ending injury. If signed by the Seahawks, he would provide a big red zone target for Russell Wilson. Zach Miller and Jermichael Finley would provide the Seahawks with a very good tight end duo.

Henry Melton, DT, Chicago Bears:
Melton visited the Seahawks on Saturday and sources said that on Saturday night they were in deep contract negations. He eventually left and went to his next visit which is in Dallas. They have a scheduled meeting on Monday. Dallas doesn’t have as much cap room as Seattle, so the Seahawks have the advantage in that area. Dallas is Henry Melton’s home town, so that might be appealing to him. Melton would replace Clinton McDonald and most likely be an upgrade. He was a pro bowl player in 2012, but tore his ACL last year.

Jared Allen, DE, Minnesota Vikings:
Jared Allen visited Seattle today, but was said to have gone back home without a contract. He is also scheduled to be meeting with Dallas this week. Seattle seems to be a perfect landing spot for Allen. If Jared Allen signed with Seattle, he would instantly be a fan favorite. Seattle has been interested in Allen since the trade deadline, when they were said to have inquired about Allen and were thinking about trading for him. Jared Allen would replace the loss of Chris Clemons and would probably end up being a bit of an upgrade.

NFL Wild Card Predictions

It’s the eve of the NFL Playoffs, so here are some predictions to get you ready for the big games.

CHIEFS AT COLTS (Sat., 1:35 p.m. PT, NBC)
The Chiefs lost to the Colts 23 to 7 in week 16. But, this game will be different. It’s tough to beat the same team twice in a season. Jamaal Charles is sure to have a monster game and the Chiefs defense is going to step up. Andrew Luck is going to miss having Reggie Wayne in this big playoff game. The Colts run game is going to struggle and the Chiefs will put the pressure on Luck early and often.

GAME MVP: Jamaal Charles

SAINTS AT EAGLES (Sat., 5:10 p.m. PT, NBC)
This should be a fun game to watch. Two high powered offenses will be going at each other all game. The Saints have struggled on the road this year and this game will be no exception. The Eagles are hot and have had great success with Nick Foles as their quarterback. LeSean McCoy won the rushing title and will continue to run with success. This will be a high scoring game, but the Eagles will pull this one off.

GAME MVP: LeSean McCoy

CHARGERS AT BENGALS (Sun., 10:05 a.m. PT, CBS)
The Chargers barely squeezed into the playoffs, but they won the games that mattered. They have a fiery quarterback in Philip Rivers who knows how to win and a star rookie wide receiver in Keenan Allen who continues to make plays. The Bengals have played very well this season, but Andy Dalton has been inconsistent. Philip Rivers will make more big plays than Andy Dalton and that will be the difference in this game.
Chargers 21 Bengals 10
GAME MVP: Philip Rivers

49ERS AT PACKERS (Sun., 1:40 p.m. PT, FOX)
This is the most anticipated game this weekend. The 49ers are travelling to chilly Lambeau Field. The cold weather gives the Packers an advantage. The Packers also have their franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers playing and he’s ready to go. Green Bay lost to the Niners last year in the playoffs. In fact, they got embarrassed. And this year they lost to the 49ers in the regular season. The Packers won’t let the 49ers beat them up again and Green Bay’s defense will step up for this game and make enough plays to slow down Kaepernick.
