Now that the Seahawks have quarterback Russell Wilson signed through 2023, the biggest mystery about their offseason is what they are going to do with defensive end Frank Clark. His future remains uncertain, leading to rumors that he could be traded.
John Schneider of the Seattle Seahawks not only has his own Wikipedia page but a Super Bowl ring and a contract thought to make him among the highest-paid general managers in the NFL.
Some of the top defensive prospects, by position, available in the NFL draft

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey says the team knows why he’s skipping voluntary workouts. Ramsey did not elaborate on the reason for his absence in his Twitter post. But he says he will be “ready when it’s time.” His agent, David Mulugheta, says Ramsey is “spending time with his young daughter & family while training in his hometown of Nashville.” Jaguars executive Tom Coughlin criticized Ramsey and teammate Telvin Smith for missing workouts.
With a week to go before the NFL draft, Saquon Barkley hasn’t gotten a lot of calls from the top prospects wanting to know what to expect next week.
Throughout the “will they sign him?” saga surrounding Russell Wilson, one oft-referenced talking point was that none of the six highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL made the postseason last year.
The Seattle Seahawks 2019 schedule includes the maximum five prime-time games, including four in a row late in the year, though broken up by a bye week on Nov. 17.
The NFL’s 100th season will begin with its most classic rivalry and feature the Super Bowl champion Patriots hosting Pittsburgh in the first Sunday night game. As previously announced, NFL 100 will kick off with Green Bay at Chicago for the 199th meeting of a series that began in 1921. That Sept. 5 game in the Thursday night slot usually reserved for hosting by the NFL champ forced New England to open three nights later.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was thinking very long term when negotiating his new deal with Seattle. He’s now under contract for five more seasons but he was looking at the chances of playing his entire career with one team. Wilson’s $140 million, four-year contract extension has made him the highest-paid player in the NFL.
Two years away from free agency, Adam Thielen was among the best bargains in the NFL. With a tight salary cap situation, the Minnesota Vikings could have waited to reward their two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver with a new contract. Waiting, and creating potential tension with team cornerstones, has not been their approach. The Vikings gave Thielen a four-year, $64 million extension last week.
Prosecutors can’t release undercover video of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and others allegedly receiving sex acts at a Florida massage parlor until a Florida judge rules later this month. The Palm Beach Post reports Circuit Judge Joseph Marx barred the release of any video from the Orchids of Asia Day Spa before an April 29 hearing where he will hear from all parties.
C.J. Mosley says Jets coach Adam Gase’s message in the team’s first meeting last week was that the goal is to beat New England. The Jets kicked off their offseason program last Monday at the team’s facility in Florham Park, New Jersey, and Gase made it clear the Jets will be aiming to win the division. The defending Super Bowl champion Patriots have won the AFC East 10 straight years, and 15 of the last 16 seasons.
The Atlanta Falcons have started their offseason conditioning program without wide receiver Julio Jones for the second straight year. Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett also did not attend the launch of the offseason program. The Falcons are attempting to negotiate new deals with each player.
If you’re a Seattle Seahawks fan, your head didn’t spend much time upright on Monday. Your eyes were glued to your phone from sunup until the clock struck midnight.
So after all that – months of trade rumors and rumblings about whether Russell Wilson wanted to stay in Seattle and if the Seahawks really wanted to keep him – the two sides remained married.
The Patriots have re-signed defensive back Jonathan Jones and signed receiver Demaryius Thomas. In adding Thomas, the Patriots pick up a player who can potentially replace the output of Chris Hogan after he signed with the Carolina Panthers. In Jones the Patriots are bringing back a player that can play multiple positions in the secondary who has also been an invaluable contributor the special teams.
The Los Angeles Chargers will wear their historic powder-blue jerseys as their primary home uniforms in the upcoming season. The franchise has worn variations of the unusual look since its 1960 inaugural season in Los Angeles and throughout the following dozen seasons in San Diego. They’ve worn the jerseys in just 36 games since 1994, but their popularity among fans has always outpaced their usage on the field.
The Oakland Raiders have signed unrestricted free agent defensive end Benson Mayowa. The deal brings Mayowa back for a second stint with the Raiders. He previously played in Oakland in 2014-15 when he had two sacks in 28 games.
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford did not join his teammates at voluntary workouts Tuesday. His wife was packing for a hospital visit later in the day. Kelly Stafford announced earlier this month she plans to have surgery to remove a brain tumor. Lions center Graham Glasgow spoke to Matthew Stafford recently, adding his family is doing well. Stafford has been at the team’s training facility this offseason.
