Seahawks Sign OT James Carpenter, to Re-sign LB Leroy Hill, Five Players Released

Our first-round pick, RT James Carpenter, has agreed to terms with the Seahawks and will join practice, per Danny O'Neil. No numbers yet, I'd guess it's probably in the range of $5-6 million fully guaranteed over four years. John Moffitt is the only Seahawks draft pick to remain unsigned, hopefully he'll be on board soon. With Gallery then signing and joining our offensive line would finally be able to practice together.

Update: the deal is reported as four years, $7.641 million, with $6.22 million guaranteed.

The Seahawks have also agreed to terms with OLB Leroy Hill. I was asked about Hill a few times over twitter and in comments, there has been pretty much no market for him and our current FO showed how much they value him by restructuring his contract to get rid of him. Again, no numbers yet, but I'm hoping/guessing it's a short near-veteran minimum contract.

And finally, Danny O'Neil lets us know that the Seahawks released OG Chris White and OT Stacy Andrews, and waived LB Joe Pawalek, DT Barrett Moen and DB James Brindley. We already knew about Andrews' impending release. Anthony Heygood also seemed to be set to release but no confirmation on him as of yet. If this list of names seems familiar, it's because Danny noted they were absent from practice. None of these releases are surprising or worrisome.
