It’s mid-May, this is one of the worst parts of the NFL offseason, so news is going to be either light or boring. In some ways, it’s actually a good thing, because “major news” at this time of year could look like this, and nobody wants that.

Anyway, the Seattle Seahawks signed up two more picks from their 2018 NFL Draft class. Fifth-round offensive tackle Jamarco Jones and seventh-round quarterback Alex McGough each agreed to their standard four-year rookie contracts. Using OverTheCap’s estimates based off of where they were picked (as set by the CBA), Jones’ deal will be four years and roughly $2.7 million, with a $245,004 signing bonus. As for McGough, it’ll be four years and $2.56 million, and a $103,693 signing bonus.

The Seahawks plan to try Jones out at left tackle, which is a brilliant idea considering the team has a good history when it comes to LTs with Jones as the surname. McGough will presumably compete with Austin Davis for the backup quarterback position.

The remaining unsigned Seahawks draft picks are Rashaad Penny, Rasheem Green, Shaquem Griffin, and Tre Flowers. Will Dissly, Michael Dickson, and Jacob Martin are the other Seahawks rookies who are under contract.
