- Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters on Tuesday that there hasn’t been any communication with S Earl Thomas, who is currently holding out of training camp, up to this point.
- Both Todd Archer and Brady Henderson predict that the Seahawks will eventually work out a trade with the Cowboys for Thomas before this year’s deadline.
- Henderson says that a second-round pick could be a realistic return for Thomas, but he wonders if the Cowboys could sweeten the deal by offering a pass rusher such as Kony Ealy.
- Meanwhile, Archer suggests a third-round pick that could turn into a second-round selection if Thomas is named All-Pro or if they work out an extension for him before next year’s draft.
Carroll mentioned that WR Doug Baldwin is dealing with a “sore knee” and will be sidelined a few weeks.
“Working on taking care of a little bit of a sore knee coming into camp,” Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “And we are just going to give him a good break here to get started. Just take our time with it and be patient.”
As for DE Dion Jordan, Carroll explained that he’s dealing with a “stress issue on his other leg” unrelated to the knee surgery he had in the spring.
“He’s going to be a while,” Carroll said. “The word is it’s going to be a while. He’s got a little bit of healing to do so it’s going to be a while.”
- The Seahawks officially locked up LT Duane Brown to a three-year extension (NFLTR) last week.
- According to Ian Rapoport, Brown receives a three-year deal worth $34.5 million that can be worth a maximum value of $36.5 million.
- Brown gets $14.5 million fully guaranteed this year, which includes $4.5 million in new money to go along with $1.75 million guaranteed for injury in 2019.
