  • Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk reports that some around the NFL wonder whether Seahawks HC Pete Carroll repeatedly confirmed their interest in signing Antonio Brown in order to coax another team into signing him.
  • Seahawks have officially ruled out G Mike Iupati from Week 7’s game against the Cardinals.
