Seattle Seahawks sign ex-Vikings kicker Blair Walsh

With Trevone Boykin’s legal trouble and the lack of experience behind Russell Wilson, the Seahawks are in the market for a veteran backup quarterback. Adding Kaepernick as an insurance policy is logical for both sides. The quarterback has the support of the major players in Seattle’s locker room and could fit in the run-based offense if he needed to play due to injury to Wilson. It might not happen right now, but Kaepernick signing in Seattle at some point this summer makes the most sense of any potential landing spot for the quarterback. Peterson is an interesting fit for the Seahawks, who, despite favoring a brand of power football, still run many of their plays from the shotgun — a slightly less favorable starting point for Peterson than a straightforward I formation or single back formation where the quarterback is under center.

Three keys to the Seattle Seahawks getting their swagger back

Jordan entered the NFL in 2013 from Oregon as an enticing pass rusher who could cover in space. In his first two seasons, he compiled three sacks and 39 tackles in 26 games of limited duty. Jordan possesses the twitchy athleticism that gets scouts geeked for prospects, but has yet to fully put it together as a pro. If he can stay healthy and off the suspension list, Jordan could prove to be an intriguing rotational player in sub-packages. Peterson is an interesting fit for the Seahawks, who, despite favoring a brand of power football, still run many of their plays from the shotgun — a slightly less favorable starting point for Peterson than a straightforward I formation or single back formation where the quarterback is under center. A nice explainer from the Star-Tribune in Minnesota can be found here. Behind Tony Romo, the 31-year-old running back has been the…

A diary from the Rams’ return to Los Angeles

nfl jerseys cheap The scene made me think back to All or Nothing with the Cardinals. You think Bruce Arians would have found this funny? If John Brown and Michael Floyd flipped their moped, something tells me they’d never see it again. “The b—- is mine now,” Brucie may say. (Get well soon, Coach.) Jared Goff is a total Cali kid. He reminds me a lot of Mark Sanchez (another Cali kid) during his star turn on the Jets’ Hard Knocks season in 2010. Young, cocky, likable and a little bit goofy. Speaking of goofy, defensive tackle William Hayes doesn’t believe in dinosaurs and is confident mermaids exist. We’ll get into that in a bit. “Gurley could be the No. 1 pick in most fantasy drafts, and I’m not sure anyone in Chicago, Philadelphia, New York has ever seen an interview with him,” Rodgers said. “Donald is a great defensive…

Rawls, Seahawks romp past Panthers in costly victory

basketball jerseys cheap The former Bills star gained just 112 yards last season with the Saints. That was a letdown after coach Sean Payton spun loads of pretty poetry about Spiller after inking him to a free-agent deal before the 2015 season. The Saints, though, never found a true role for him, especially with Spiller suffering a handful of injuries. The 29-year-old runner has never come close to matching his monster season of 2012, but the Seahawks do a good job with their backfield. They obviously see something they like in Spiller, but make no mistake about it: This should be — and will be — Michael’s backfield in 2016. The Seahawks were searching for a general manager to replace Tim Ruskell, who’d resigned during the season, and Schneider, who’d spent a season as Seattle’s director of player personnel at the start of the decade, had been identified as one…
