Free Agent Targets?
Thu Jan 11, 2018 12:10 am
  • After today's events I've been looking forward to the off-season with renewed enthusiasm and taking a look at the list of upcoming free agents and who could potentially be good fits.

    One of the first ones that jumped out to me was to bring back Clinton McDonald. He was a solid depth guy for us in his last year here and has been steady in Tampa Bay. Last year he was awesome with 10 QB Hits to go along with 5 sacks. I think he would make an interesting option that shouldn't break the bank.

    Another guy I thought of was Alex Okafor who looked really good in New Orleans this year before he went down with a torn Achilles. The injury will likely lower his price. He had 4.5 sacks in just 10 games this year and is still just 26 years old.

    I know we just brought in Jason Myers but with Pete's love of competition for jobs, Caleb Sturgis could be another option at Kicker. He started the year as the Eagles starter but Elliott looks like he's taken that job now. Sturgis has a strong leg and is also pretty accurate so far in his career, he's converted 97% of his PATs and 81% of his FGs. This year 50+ yard kicks weren't even a consideration for us, Walsh only attempted 1 the entire year (which of course he missed), Sturgis has routinely been a good distance kicker thus far in his career. Myers lost his job because he was struggling and was eventually given up on by his team, I'm not sure if I want to see us invest in another kicker with potential confidence issues. Sturgis just simply got hurt and I think makes a far better choice.

    Curious to see what you guys think would be targets we could look at this off-season.

  • None. Zero room in the salary cap to sign big name free agents. Gotta make some big cuts to bring anyone with a name you recognize to the team.

    Not all free agents are big name and none of the guys the OP listed were.

  • Seahawks can afford afew FA easily. There is plenty of dead weight to cut to save money. They do have some good FA though so its going to be a question of does JS want to lose the comp picks for some mediocre FA.

  • Only WR talent with TD production to approach Jimmy Graham last year is Jarvis Landry and Sammy Watkins. I don't see either of them being cheap, and Landry's fumbles will probably further discourage Pete.

  • Haven't looked at every free agent, but these ones seemed like good fits:

    OL - Andrew Norwell, Justin Pugh, Josh Kline, Garry Gilliam, Joeckel (for about $2M per), Jonathan Cooper

    WR - Terrelle Pryor, Donte Moncrief, Jordan Matthews, Eric Decker, Cody Latimer, Brice Butler, all might be fairly cheap and worth taking a chance on. Paul Richardson and Marqise Lee are probably a bit pricier.

    TE - Trey Burton, Tyler Eifert, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Jimmy Graham (for about $7M per max), Ben Watson, Anthony Fasano, Lee Smith, Darren Fells, Troy Niklas, Ed Dickson, Virgil Green, Luke Willson

    RB - Le'Veon Bell, Charles Sims

    CB - Jalen Collins, Maxwell, Shead, Vontae Davis all might be cheap

    S - Bradley McDougald, Eric Reid, Morgan Burnett, LaMarcus Joyner, Tre Boston, TJ Ward, Tyvon Branch

    DL/LEO/SLB - Sheldon Richardson, Kony Ealy, Junior Galette, William Hayes,Tank Carradine, Alex Okafor, Devon Kennard, Barkevious Mingo, Courtney Upshaw, Aldon Smith

  • Trey Burton is exactly the type of TE Seattle should avoid. As a FA TE, I'd love to kick the tires on Virgil Green. Guy is an outstanding blocker and an underrated pass catcher. That's what Seattle's scheme needs from the TE spot.

    Baldwin? Not a hope in hell. $9.5M dead money!

    I believe the cap position will look vastly different come March/April, though.

  • I wouldn’t expect any big name costly FA’s to be signed.

    IMHO with no 2nd and 3rd rounders this year, they will let Graham and Sheldon walk to get FA COMP picks to stockpile for the 2019 draft. I think this last year (2017) will set the Hawks back a year and I expect another 9-7 year for 2018.

    If the Schotty rumors are true, As a guy that wants to run the ball, Sadly, I think a non run blocking TE like Jimmy is gone.

  • Resign Sheldon Richardson. Focus on getting good value out of our other resigns or let them walk.
    Bring in James Hurst, ASJ or Richard Rodgers, KPL, Donte Moncrief and Chandler Catanzaro. Then build through the draft. That would be a successful offseason in my opinion, as long as we improve our playcalling on offense.

    Also... Can we clear cap if we cut Lane? He's definitely not playing like a 6 million dollar a year corner. I'm hoping we frontloaded his contract with guaranteed money, so we can cut him and clear cap this year. He was infuriatingly bad in coverage.

    With a New OC and our Cap there will be a lot of changes, mostly to free up room for next season, he will need his guys and replace non functioning players that can't perform in his system, most of those may be on the O line. They will have to learn or relearn some power schemes.

    Finesse type TE. Undersized. Short arms and thin legs have him struggling to anchor as a blocker. Every time I saw him inline in Philly he was easily overwhelmed by ends and even backers.

    But he does score TDs, so someone will overpay him.

    Though Zach Ertz is the team’s starter, Trey Burton can make an impact in many aspects of the game.

    Burton is a talented pass catcher who can line up in the slot or out wide. He’s also a capable blocker and made his start with the Eagles as a special teams player.

    Coach Doug Pederson spoke highly of Burton when asked if he would see an expanded role this season.

    “Yeah, I think the ceiling’s high. Obviously, we know he’s a four-core special teams guy and he’s very valuable on teams. He’s a guy that we can move around offensively,” Pederson said at his press conference on Tuesday. “Carson was real comfortable with him towards the end of the year filling in for Jordan [Matthews] when Jordan was out.”

    Pederson added how he’s noticed Burton has bulked up this offseason.

    “I like where he’s at right now. I think he’s gotten bigger. He’s gotten stronger,” Pederson said. “He can hold up on the line of scrimmage when we ask him to block, but we know what he can do in route running and that’s something that we’ll continue to develop.”

    For the right price, I'd take him.

    I could be wrong but without 2nd and 3rd round picks in the upcoming draft I fully expect the 18th pick to be dealt for more picks, unless an absolute cant miss stud falls to that spot.

    I'd be sorely tempted to keep Maxwell even if Sherman comes right, and I'd be tempted to play a nickel set of Max/Griff/Sherm/Thomas/MacDougald because where the heck can you throw against that?

    I wouldn't mind seeing what Sherman could do as almost a third safety, giving him free rein to be a general ball-hawk. He reads trends and anticipates plays. He is also quite good against the run and is a good tackler. Maxwell and Griffin are both good at coverage, but both (mostly Maxwell) allow receptions with 0 YAC since they are there for the tackle but don't get the ball. Having a roving Sherman could change that.

  • Won't we have like 30M+ in cap space if Cliff retires and we cut Lane? More if we move on from Bennett, Sherm, Kam, etc.

    I like Andrew Norwell the most because we have a new OL coach and he's a young all-pro caliber player. I think his market is at least 12M APY, so the Hawks probably won't want to pay him that.

    Okafor is a great idea OP, let's see how he heals up. He was a great impact role player for the Saints this season and they missed his pass rushing skills after he went down.

    I believe Shead's contract tolls so we have him at no extra cost to us next year because he didn't come back til very late in the season. I then heard on the HB podcast there may be a CBA issue on that so IDK. I'd sign Maxwell for the 3 year 8M total deal I saw proposed on Fieldgulls.

    Maybe Fasano as a blocking TE? Definitely not Joeckel and let all the other FA walk.

    This primarily why the change is good. First thing new coaches are going to do when they come in is point out the problems of the previous regime. Then implement what they think will change that under PC and JS's discretion.

    We are going to win games next year regardless. Too much talent not to. Do we make that said talent a stone axe or a samurai sword is yet to be seen.

    True. We will still win games though despite how disgusting our offense is.

    We have invested a lot of resources in O line, they are Power run guys, Cable tried to take LongshoremanImage and make them into Baryshnikov, Image let them be who they are and have crash courses in pass protection. As far as RB, Carson if he comes back all the way should be good, Davis a do everything guy, McKissic is going to thrIve, if Schotty is smart he will use him like Terry Metcalf, a lot of the same skills, Prosise I think may get moved to WR.

    I believe Shead's contract tolls so we have him at no extra cost to us next year because he didn't come back til very late in the season. I then heard on the HB podcast there may be a CBA issue on that so IDK.


    It's now been confirmed that he will be a FA rather than his contract rolling over, I know it was up for debate, though.

    Garry Gilliam? Good god, what is wrong with you.

    HAVE WE NOT SEEN ENOUGH ALREADY?

    For a decent price he'd compete with Fant and Justin Senior at RT while giving some nice depth if someone gets hurt.

    PFF actually graded him out about average at RT this season, so maybe he's improving and entering his prime at 27 as well.

    Joeckel and Gilliam would be alright for about $2M per each for depth/competition it seems.

    I thought he only became a UFA if he was named all pro which he wasnt.

    Yep. He was actually improving here in his last season, though not a stellar lineman by any means.

  • I'd love to see them go after Norwell aggressively however they'd need to adapt their cap position to do so.

    I maintain my thought that the cap situation will look vastly different come March.

    Using him like Eric would be cool too.

  • Arizona may release Iupati as he was less than effective in 16 and hurt all of 17 (he was probably hurt in 16 as well). When healthy he's a heck of a road grader. If he doesn't retire he probably could be had on prove it contract.

  • Too soon to name names for the most part until after the draft...............but in general I think these are the positions we go after FA's.

    - TE
    - Guard
    - DE
    - Outside LB
    - Maybe DB if we cut Sherman
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

  • I don't understand the people acting like we've got no money to spend on FA. Sure we won't have 60M or something crazy but between what is already freed up and what is likely to change with extensions or cuts or whatever the Seahawks have enough money to sign anyone they want this offseason.

    With that said, I feel like John purposely planned to stack up on a lot of comp picks this year and because of that I see them being a little more careful. I think they'll try to not sign anyone that could potentially negate a potential 3rd or 4th round pick they should get for Graham or Richardson.

    Someone that has really caught my eye during these playoffs is Senio Kelemente. He could be a real steal in this FA class I think. He stepped up admirably for Andrus Peat after his broken leg and has looked really good at multiple positions throughout the year.

    Kelemete has spent time at right tackle, right guard and left guard while making an appearance in all 16 regular season games for the Saints. He has notched eight total starts while being the top option to replace injured starters. He has been a plug-and-play replacement as there has been little to no drop-off in the quality of offensive line play when he is in the lineup.

    Towards the mid-way point of the season, Kelemete was singled out as the No. 2 rated guard in terms of pass blocking grade (99.3) in the NFL by Pro Football Focus.


    The do-it-all offensive lineman has flown under the radar, but one could argue without his high level of play that the Saints wouldn’t have been as successful in 2017.

    Kelemete should be commended for coming off the bench time-and-time again with such great success. Clearly, he was the most critical backup turned starter for the team, and as such should be in consideration as New Orleans MVP.

  • Speaking of road grater, how about DJ Flucker?

    I rewatched a couple of NYG games yesterday and Flucker can make holes and is decent (Not perfect) in the pass game. He looked miles better than our recent guard play. He's a free agent.
