Like referees and offensive linemen, long snappers are perhaps best judged by how little you notice them during the course of a game, and during his five seasons with the Seahawks, Clint Gresham has rarely stood out. And now Gresham's steady play will be around in Seattle for another three seasons, because the free agent signed a three-year deal worth just over $2.7 million, including a $300,000 signing bonus. While Gresham wasn't the highest profile of Seattle's free agents,...

The Seahawks and Saints announced a blockbuster deal last week, and the trade that sent Max Unger and a first-round pick to New Orleans for Jimmy Graham and a first-round pick even showed up on the league's transaction report on Wednesday, but there was one more T to cross (or I to dot, if you prefer) with Max Unger taking his physical in New Orleans Monday.

UPDATE: The post below mentions Jesse Williams saying he is going to re-sign with Seattle. Well on Monday evening, a Tweet from his verified account denied that he even talked to the paper that quoted him. While Williams doesn't say, via twitter, whether he will or won't end up back in Seattle, for now it's wait-and-see.

With Byron Maxwell headed to Philadelphia and Jeremy Lane recovering from two serious injuries, it's no secret that the Seahawks are in the market for cornerbacks, and after inking Will Blackmon earlier Monday, they appear to be adding veteran corner Cary Williams as well. Williams, who visited the Seahawks last week, chose Seattle over the New York Jets, Tennessee and one of his former teams, the Baltimore Ravens, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.

Not long after news broke of a new deal for Marshawn Lynch, we found out where at least some of the money came from in order for the Seahawks to give their running back a raise. Miller, who took a pay cut last offseason to avoid becoming a cap casualty, would have counted $3.39 million towards the 2015 salary cap had the Seahawks kept him around. There is $1 million of dead money on that deal, so the Seahawks will save $2.39 million in cap space with the move.

Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse, a starter in 2014, was set to become a restricted free agent, but as expected, the Seahawks have decided to place the second-round tender on him, per ESPN's Field Yates. That means if Kearse signs the tender, he'll make $2.356 million in 2015, though he and the Seahawks could decide to negotiate a different deal after the fact. That's something the Seahawks have...
