  • Thanks Jville, updated.

    I suspect they may add Swoopes to the PS again, time will tell.

  • I hope he makes it, he has been getting better and better and now were at the teams hurting time of year, could have thought of others that contribute far less to be let go.

  • Tyrone Swoopes should persevere in Seattle as a developmental work in progress. What little I've witnessed suggests there is every reason to assume he continues to pursue a promising career with the Seahawks.

    I've been waiting all season to see Ed Dickson in the new Seahawk offense. Although, they may limit his snaps in his first game, such a veteran addition can only boost the tight end group. I'm convinced this offense is coming together and strengthening as the 2018 season unfolds. Love the point of emphasis we're seeing in this year's blocking game.

    I'M all IN

  • This is a brilliant thread but strictly informative, so apologies if I'm not allowed to ask questions in here, but can anyone tell me what will happen with the cap for next year? Any big money we'll be saving on?

    Without getting into a bunch of calculations and detail -- 2018 has been a transition year, cycling out a bunch of old contracts. Our cap definitely gets a lot better in 2019, but it's also going to be "pay the QB" year so don't look for the Seahawks to target any big name FAs. Probably going to have to let Earl and K.J. go -- try to re-sign Fluker and hopefully Clark but it's clear Frank is looking to get seriously paid so that one is going to get interesting. Real chance he gets the TAG.

    Lots of people will try to post projections of dollars and figures but I've said this for years -- cap space is such a fluid situation that don't believe anyone who tries to give you a firm number. For example if someone says "we'll have $30M to spend" ask them to show their work because there's a whole lot of assumptions this early on.

    The one thing any cap expert will agree on -- 2018 we had to hold the line due to some bad deals in 2016 and 2017. For example, did you know Jeremy Lane, Ahtyba Rubin and Jermaine Kearse are still on our books?

  • Bolton, check out the OP and click on the OTC.com link therein. By reading the link you can see the dead money for this year and move to 2019 and you will see the present projected available cap. BTW ask away, there are lots of smart folks like Hawkstorian who don't mind helping.

    Hawkstorian is a guru as far as the cap is concerned and used to be the constant go to guy around here a few year back, but he's stepped back a bit as others have taken up the role. He's usually always dead right on. Not truly knowing what's up with the cap as it is very fluid and many changes can be expected is normal. The big contracts the team has got to deal with coming up are Wilson's next deal and whatever deals can be be made with Clark, Wright, and Coleman.

    If you look at the roster in the OP each player that is due for a renewal at the end of this season is identified with italics, there are quite a few. I agree with Hawkstorian that I doubt the team does much in FA for the 2019 season as cap will be an issue.

  • Thanks Jville, updated.

    The team has now made two more roster moves than they did all last season.

    If McKissic gets added back then I suspect the team will not be keeping Prosise much longer.

  • .Com is unfortunately frequently out of date, and is a very frustrating source for any timely information regarding the roster.

  • I had hoped the team could have got him back on the PS. Perhaps it will need to wait until the offseason now.

    Still one open PS spot.

    The TE group must be getting healthy again explaining the Swoopes move.

  • With Neiko Thorpe still inactive, Kalan Reed gets the call only 1 month and three days after being added to the practice squad. I'm thinking they are not waiting any longer for special teams help and the need for a slot coverage backup with the instincts and in-traffic movement to challenge crossing patterns.

    I agree. A little odd move this early in the week, makes me think someone may have tried to poach him.

  • The DBs got banged up a bit last weekend and with Thorpe on the limp too it makes sense.

  • Seahawks waive RB-Troymaine Pope from the PS and add WR- Malachi Dupre

    Dupre was drafted by the Packers in the 7th rd. and played for LSU. Releasing Pope makes sense as McKissic is now practicing.

  • Of course the tongues are in firmly those cheeks. :2thumbs:

    How many RBs does the team need? They now have 6, including the invisible FB, and Pope is surplus to needs.

    Pope is an interesting example of a player who flashed but perhaps isn’t better than those here.

    McKissic to me has more stuff and if activated will push Prosise further down the DC which again raises the question of what to do with Prosise who flashed but isn’t better than the other 4 real RBs.

  • There are three available spots 1 on the 53 man roster, and 2 now on the PS. Given the the loss of Daniels to the Cardinals I agree about them adding back a TE to the PS or the 53. I can see Reynolds coming back to the PS if he clears waivers. There is now also an open roster spot for JD McKissic who is the likely add to the 53.

  • Rostermon confirms that in fact JD McKissic has been reactivated to the 53 and Tyrone Swoopes has been re-signed to the PS along with with Keenan Reynolds.
