Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaron Brown was working with the first team in organized team activities alongside Tyler Lockett, with rookie D.K. Metcalf mostly with the second-team offense. Metcalf also tried his hand returning some punts, but he didn't look so good. The 29-year-old Brown had 14 receptions for 166 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in his first full season with Seattle last year. There's opportunity with Doug Baldwin retiring, but Lockett and Metcalf are expected to be the top two wideouts, while Brown will have to battle with David Moore, Malik Turner, Amara Darboh and several rookies. Brown might be a waiver wire addition early in the year in deeper leagues if he wins a starting job and produces early on.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that running back Chris Carson (knee) "had a little work done" on his knee, but he should be back in a couple of weeks. Carson has had injury issues before, so this one is worth watching as we get further into the summer. The 24-year-old, a seventh-round pick in 2017, has yet to play a full season in his two years in the NFL and managed just four games in his rookie season. He had 247 carries for 1,151 yards (4.7 average) and nine touchdowns as he ran away with the job in Seattle in 2018. He'll have to keep it up this season to hold off Rashaad Penny, who is entering his second season and should have a larger role.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said there's a chance that defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is ready for Week 1, but they won't know for sure until training camp begins. Ansah has always had plenty of pass-rushing potential, but he was never able to capitalize on it in Detroit due to various injuries. The 29-year-old played in only seven games in 2018 and hasn't played in a full season since 2015. Ansah has reached double-digit sack totals twice in his career, but those in IDP leagues will want to see him prove his health first. Seattle is hoping he can fill in for the loss of Frank Clark, who was traded to Kansas City.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has been impressed with wide receiver Amara Darboh at organized team activities. "Darboh looks great. He's back in the fold now, so he goes right back into the competition of it," Carroll said. Darboh, a 2017 third-round pick, didn't play at all last year due to a knee injury. There are more opportunities in the receiving corps in Seattle now that Doug Baldwin is gone, but Darboh will still be fighting for repetitions with rookie D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, David Moore, Jaron Brown and Malik Turner.
Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner is aiming to become the league's highest paid linebacker. Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley will make $17 million a year on his new deal. Wagner made $10.750 million per season on his previous deal. He'll turn 29 in June and is entering the final year of his current deal in 2019. Wagner can be a lockdown player in both the run and pass game, but it remains to be seen if Seattle will accommodate his lofty demands for his next deal. He is attending voluntary organized team activities but won't participate without a new deal.
