The offseason for the Seattle Seahawks was, in a word, unique. While the team was largely quiet in free agency, as is normally the case, and added just three players in the draft, the most unique aspect of the recently completed offseason may have been how many players were asking for contracts.
In a move that itself wasn’t a surprise, but for which the timing caught fans off guard, the Hawks extended wide receiver Tyler Lockett in the spring, only for that fan the flames of questions and debate regarding the expected contract extension for All Pro safety Jamal Adams. Adams finally got the extension he’d been looking for since coming to Seattle from the New York Jets last offseason, and it also led to a mini wave of hold ins from both left tackle Duane Brown and Quandre Diggs, both of whom are in the final year of their current contract.
That leads to Monday, which is a holiday that many Seattle fans may take to celebrating now that there is some good news regarding Duane Brown.

With Brown practicing, it would appear that he is set to play Sunday in the Week 1 opener against the Indianapolis Colts, and Seahawks fans can breathe a sigh of relief that it won’t be a Day 3 draft pick protecting Russell Wilson’s blindside when Seattle takes the field this season.
