Winslow spent the rest of the season as a street free agent, which gave him plenty of time to think about his stint in Seattle.

That was on Pete (Carroll). But Im here now and this is a great opportunity for me. “What happened in Seattle, I couldnt control that.
Fantasy football 2013 draft preview: Seattle Seahawks team report
McQuistan and Giacomini are each due over $3 million in non-guaranteed base salaries in the final year of their contracts. Looming Contract Issues: 2014 is shaping up to be a very interesting offseason for the Seahawks, particularly along the defensive line. Michael Bennett, O’Brien Schofield and Tony McDaniel signed one-year deals in Seattle and will be free agents next offseason. Cliff Avril signed a two-year contract, but if he doesn’t work out, the Seahawks can pull the chord and avoid $5 million in base salary becoming fully guaranteed by releasing Avril within five days after Super Bowl XLVIII. Chris Clemons, who is coming off a torn ACL and turns 32 in October, has a non-guaranteed base salary of $7.5 million in 2014, the final year of his contract. Then there’s Red Bryant, who is due a $3 million roster bonus on the fourth day of the league year, which could be converted (perhaps with some of his $4.5 million base salary) to create additional cap space that the Seahawks might need.

Ashford, a wideout out of Northern Illinois, signed with the Seahawks after having also spent time with New England and Cleveland , having gone undrafted in April. However, as Danny Kelly of Field Gulls pointed out , Ashford visited with the Seahawks prior to the draft so the Seahawks are familiar with the receiver. At NIU, Ashford gained 1,685 all-purpose yards, scoring four receiving touchdowns and one punt-return touchdown during his four seasons with the team. As Kelly stated, Ashford likely projects as a return-specialist candidate for the Seahawks as the team looks to fill a role formerly slotted for injured receiver Percy Harvin. The team looked to fill another position dominated by injuries this offseason at tight end Thursday, as the Seahawks announced the signing of former Washington State tight end Andrei Lintz. With Anthony McCoy out for the season with a torn Achilles and Zach Miller walking around training camp in a boot, the Seahawks will give Lintz a chance to compete for a roster spot.

download “But we’re not discouraged at all. We’re still coming out here grinding, working, and we’re going to see how great we can be. We think we have everything we need to succeed, and we’re going to do that.” The Seahawks didn’t take a chance on Harvin, 25, out of desperation. They did it out of opportunity. And they weren’t blind to the durability and character risks before trading three draft picks to the Minnesota Vikings in March and giving Harvin a five-year contract extension that included $25.5 million in guarantees. SURGERY SET: Harvin vows to be ‘back strong as ever’ Harvin hadn’t appeared on an injury report with a hip issue since Weeks 2 and 3 of the 2010 season.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity since the results were not released.

Seahawks knew Percy Harvin’s hip carried a risk
In the second half of the season, he took off. He topped 8.0 YPA in all but two of Seattle’s final eight games. Wilson may have entered the league without the fanfare of Luck or Griffin, but he’s in the best position of the three to succeed this season. One of a quarterback’s best friends is a dominant running back who is excellent in pass protection. You know, exactly like Marshawn Lynch. Thanks to that and a dominant defense, there’s about as little pressure on Wilson as there can be on a quarterback of a team with legitimate Super Bowl hopes. However, the offense is built around him and Lynch, and they’ll employ the read-option as frequently as the Redskins and 49ers (with Colin Kaepernick).
