SEATTLE – Will it be one of the little-noticed moves that makes a big difference in the end? The Seahawks made a minor trade Monday, dealing away a future draft pick for a seldom-used defensive back. The Cleveland Browns announced Monday that they’d agreed to trade defensive back C.J. Smith to the Seahawks for a 2020 conditional seventh-round pick. Smith signed with the Philadelphia Eagles after going undrafted out of North Dakota State in 2016, then made his way to […]

Every March is difficult for Seahawks fans with general attrition from year to year when free agency begins. But I think we’d all agree that this year is different. After all, it’s not every year that the Hawks release Richard Sherman and Jeremy Lane, trade Michael Bennett, and lose Jimmy Graham, Paul Richardson, Sheldon Richardson and Deshawn Shead to free agency, just to name a few. Add the uncertainty of Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril’s health and reports of the […]
FRISCO, TX — NFL Free Agency has reached the end of its first week, and while other top NFC teams like the Eagles and Vikings have made some huge moves, your Cowboys have done… nothing. Yeah, at the moments the Boys are the only team in the NFL to not add or re-sign a player through free agency. Their only move came before it started, putting the 2018 franchise tag on Demarcus Lawrence. They’ve lost some players, though. Linebacker Anthony […]
SEATTLE – Even if you’re getting used to it by now, it hurts: Sheldon Richardson won’t be back. The Seattle Seahawks saw yet another starter sign elsewhere Friday afternoon, as the Minnesota Vikings announced they had acquired defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported it’s a one-year contract. Unlike with Richard Sherman, Jimmy Graham and others, the Seahawks were reportedly actively trying to re-sign Richardson. Just before the season started, they traded Jermaine Kearse and a second-round pick to […]
(CNN) — Spaniard Rafael Nadal will be remembered as one of tennis’ best ever players — and competitors — and one of his country’s finest sportspeople. But the level of intensity that Nadal brings to his game has come at a cost. So much so that the 16-time grand slam winner would trade a few of his titles for a little less suffering, according to his uncle Toni — the man who has done the most to shape the player’s […]
SEATTLE – It looks like the Seattle Seahawks are beginning to fill in some of those roster holes. The Seahawks have reached a deal with tight end Ed Dickson, according to reports from the NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport. The Seahawks lost Jimmy Graham to Green Bay earlier this week, and Luke Willson has been making the rounds visiting teams during free agency. Dickson spent four seasons each with the Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers, racking up 178 […]
SEATTLE – Could the World Cup be coming to Seattle? Seattle is part of a united bid by the U.S., Canada and Mexico to host the FIFA World Cup in 2026. The idea is for 23 cities – including 17 in the U.S. – to share hosting duties. Vancouver, British Columbia, said its bid was rejected because it refused to comply with FIFA’s requirements that include tax waivers and putting agreements under Swiss law. Five other U.S. cities were cut: […]
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The former president of ESPN said he resigned from the sports network after an extortion plot by someone who sold him cocaine. John Skipper told the Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Thursday that the drug seller, whom he did not name, tried to extort him in December. He said he hadn’t had dealings with the seller before, and previously had been “careful” about buying cocaine. “They threatened me, and I understood immediately that threat put […]
