2021 Depth Chart, Roster Moves, Cap Position

NOTE : This thread is now going to be unstickied and allowed to pass into history.

The team usually makes close to 300 roster moves/season ( last year 298 ); the depth chart changes as injuries happen and/or players are added or subtracted as needed. I believe having a depth chart here is a good addition to the main board page so when the team changes players, knowing their player numbers, their names, and positional information is a good thing to be able to quickly refer to here without leaving the site. JS likes to churn the roster a bit to help the competitive situations at various positions.

Here below is a current depth chart. I will record each transaction in and out as they happen. This depth chart is just my opinion, feel free to comment or suggest changes. Comments here are welcomed, this thread is supposed to be informative but also to encourage roster discussion. The plan is to record all forthcoming roster moves and to adjust the DC as the roster changes are made.

Please advise here of any changes as they happen. The usual dependable members always assist but everyone should feel completely free to report changes to the roster here when they happen. Be careful as sometimes the media gets the story wrong, or the source proves unreliable. All assistance is greatly appreciated and allows us to have an accurate and up to date DC here. I will attempt to keep this depth chart current quickly after all changes, PS designations, waivers, cuts, additions, players claimed, PUP, or injury designations, etc.. I will also attempt to keep it current throughout the season by indicating what the roster moves were after they happen. This sometimes involves a delay, sometimes life intervenes, and the delay may result in the update being slower to happen. However, I will make every effort to keep this page current. This hopefully will be a complete record.

I will also update the presently available cap number on a weekly basis, or as quickly as information can be obtained from https://overthecap.com/salary-cap/seattle-seahawks/. Their number can also be seen at the bottom of this page.

Here is the roster from Seahawks.com: http://www.seahawks.com/team/roster

Here is a link to the team’s coaching staff from the team’s website: https://www.seahawks.com/team/coaches-roster/

Here also a DC from the team: http://www.seahawks.com/team/depth-chart It's not usually posted until after training camp.

Bo Scarborough is a free agent as an expired PS Player. Same with Alex Boone, Alex Collins, Ray-Ray Armstrong and Stephen Sullivan.

Thanks 'Storian!!!

Both Sullivan and Scarborough are Street FAs.

I'm going to list them both in ERFA group for convenience with an appropriate designation differing them because like ERFAs the team retains their rights as 1 year players. Sulliivan will likely be re-signed in one capacity or another, and Scarborough too after his injury is healed.

Thanks for making a new 2021 thread Jammerhawk!

The Hawks have a lot of decisions to make this off-season. We are going to be losing some popular players would be my guess. I'm curious of the cap number. That's before we know the cap ceiling, isn't it? If so, then we may be looking at pretty much no cap room once the official number comes out for 2021. Is that correct?

No problem my friend, it was close to time for a new thread at any rate.

The cap number is the number as estimated by OTC.com it is based upon the present 2021 estimated cap of $176 million/team as earlier announced by the NFL. This number is still not official but it is clear the team has not much cap space to work with and will need to massage a few deals to open up space. There have been various reports of the cap being closer to $180 million as the bottom limit but I suspect it could be a good bit higher as the potential competitive effects of a drastic cap drop will need to be carefully considered but the owners. Most all of the playoff teams will have significant cap problems to deal with this offseason and while the Hawks don't have much available cap at present they are just slightly better than the league average. Fortunately they have a few good sized deals that can be worked over, reallocated or extended to open up available cap space.

Free agency is going to be quite complex for players and their agents this offseason and the simply huge differences between the the teams with the most available cap and those who are in cap difficulties is huge and is almost as much as the present estimate available cap for a whole team for the 2021 season. The team cap guys are going to need to be very creative this year.

Hey man, no worries, this is a team effort, I'm just the front man, my partners are the talent in the band. Don't hesitate to comment here, with 40K + visits last season this is a popular spot. All roster questions can be answered here to the extent of knowledge of the team's apparent intentions. Sometimes my biases are apparent.

If you notice a roster move please post it here so it can be added, don't be shy in posting, everyone of us here is subject to being flat out wrong and being there with the news is just fine. Ultimately though, getting it right is what we strive for here.

There are a lot of very football smart guys posting on this site, we don't always agree, but we are all Hawks fans. Every opinion on this site is worthy of critical assessment.

Thanks Hawks2022!!!

I had noted Adams as signed to a futures deal on the 2020 roster thread but for some reason didn't included him on the roster. He was a late PS player that was cut at the end of the season then added back with a futures contract just a few days after the others were signed to futures deals

Here is an article on the cap situation faced by the team it sets out the numbers based upon a $176 -$178 million cap number for the season.

https://www.fieldgulls.com/2021/1/24/22 ... -cap-draft

It is quite possible the team could be in a negative cap position with just 48 players under contract. JS is going to have to massage a few deals very hard and our FAs if they want to stay are going to have be flexible in their negotiations. Creativity is going to be the norm. This isn’t going to easy stuff for the team and for Free Agent players.

This is going to be a very difficult off season for the whole league. The bottom tier teams that have cap space may find some significant cap bargains.

Curiously with the pandemic continuing there is unlikely to be fans in the stands very soon either. A shrinking of the cap may occur again next season as we are in uncharted territory here.

15.6 billion in revenue between the 32 teams last year and they are "lowering the cap" because of.... what.. they didn't have enough left over for contingencies and inflation still occurring? All of this is hilariously greedy of owners to be honest.

It’s a way to claw back salaries from the union, for sure it’s greedy and will do nothing to truly foster competitive rivalries. The cap drop hurts a lot of teams who had planned ahead but now have their cap plans ripped apart.

It is greedy for sure, highly short sighted, damaging to the league and fosters ill will from the players and the union. A plan B or C needs to arrived at where the loss of revenue and the cap disruption is amortized over time rather than all at once. Jerrah will no doubt lobby in this direction, frankly it makes more sense to deal with the problem.

I'm going to put this move with the 2020 thread for consistency sake. The team was down a player on the PS. Normally we count the transaction numbers from the day follow Super Bowl.

Updated on both threads.

I foresee a very busy season ahead on this thread Jammer. If we are going to remain competitive there will need to be a lot of movement, and I don't see how that is possible. Schneider and the staff will have to be on their A game this year, maybe at a higher level than ever before. Other teams are already started in the slobber knocker transaction game. Just a matter of time until something happens on our end.

I suspect that the final cap number will be bigger (not hugely bigger, but the pain will be spread out over a few seasons) than presently believed to be the case as it guts the FA market, and penalizes those team who did what the union asked and spent annually to close to the cap limit, JMO. However never underestimate the greed of the owner's group. I also think the COVID situation is far from resolved, and many of rules from last season will remain in place.

The Hawks have just 4 draft picks but have been big players in the UDFA market so they will find warm bodies. Luckily they have some big contracts that can be extended and/or reworked to open up some cap room but have many FAs who will either have to take a short term low ball deal to stay or move on. The whole FA market will be depressed, and those who didn't get their "big contract " last season won't be anymore for a while, or just in rare situations.

The roster will churn more than it has in past few seasons, but there is a lot of good quality young talent holding over and quality payers in most key positions. JS has a habit of making something from not very much and i agree he will be pressed harder this season than ever before but he is talented personnel man and will find Pete the young bodies to develop.

The team will be challenged in the division harder than before but will surprise and perhaps show improvement if the OC can unlock RWs talent more completely. The team will have a pass rush and will add to the interior OLine, (@OC and OG). some big decision will be made at CB which might surprise.

I am very curious to watch. They have done it before and will do it again successfully.

Key position groups are:

We have plenty of Cap Space, look at cap space for 2022! I think the best gauge for the cap space in 2022 is 2021 not the projected 220 Million OTC is using. 2022 Seahawks have 86 Million on the books which ranks #5 most available Cap Space & Seattle has its QB under contract, if you factor in RW under contract I would say Seattle is in the best cap situation in the NFL. Duane Brown, Tyler Lockett, Diggs etc... We have tons of players in their final year in 2021. I view 2021 as a reset year, a year where we plan SuperBowl runs for 2021, 2022, & 2023! I would go after LT Trent Williams & pay him 20 million a year on a 4 year contract, then I would trade Duane Brown for a 3rd round pick. I would go after LG Thuney & pay him 14 million. Then I would go after Leonard Williams pay him 19 Million & trade Jarren Reed for a 3rd round pick. DT Dalvin Tomlinson would be my second choice after Leonard Williams and I would still trade Jarren Reed. Leonard Williams can play 3 tech & DE & has always been a strong run stopper. Also signing Leonard Williams makes DE Green & Dunlap expendable.

Brees just restructured in N.O., went from 36 million to 12 million, rounded guys so don't crucify the messenger, if Wilson would do something similar we would be in great shape going forward.
