NFL News and Rumors
It may be the NFL offseason, but free agency is coming up fast. As of March 13, teams around the league can officially sign free agents and there are plenty of Seahawks whose future in Seattle remains unclear.
Earl Thomas is flirting with the Dallas Cowboys, while Frank Clark, who's rookie contract is coming to a close, is recruiting a former veteran to come back to the Emerald City.
Let's get you caught up with the latest news and rumors around the NFL: Seahawks edition.
- Colin Kaepernick could play in the XFL
- Frank Clark makes it clear: he’s a Seahawk
- Will the Cowboys make a run at Earl Thomas?
- Is Bruce Irvin returning to Seattle?
Colin Kaepernick could play in the XFL
Now that Colin Kaepernick has settled his case with the NFL, could the 31-year-old quarterback be on his way to the Emerald City?
According to Sporting News, Kaepernick talked with XFL executives about joining the league this past fall, and Seattle is now one of the franchise host cities.
Just this week, Seahawks legend Jim Zorn was named head coach and GM to Seattle’s XFL team, making it an enticing option for the former 49ers quarterback.
The XFL confirmed Kaepernick had spoken with the league, but declined to share details of the Kaepernick contract talks.
Frank Clark makes it clear: he’s a Seahawk
Frank Clark has a message to share: I’m a Seattle Seahawk.
The Everything is Earned podcast used a graphic of Frank Clark and Ndamukong Suh to ask input on what free agent the Cleveland Browns should pursue.
The problem is the graphic didn’t contain Clark at all. Instead, a photo of Bobby Wagner was included, so of course Clark had to let them know.
“Number 1, dis b wags. Number 2, dis number 54. Number 3, I’m number 55. Number 4, I’m a Seattle Seahawks,” Clark responded with a peace sign emoji.
Clark, who is reaching the end of his rookie contract, could be a free agent if Seattle chooses to not give him a long-term contract or franchise tag.
Will the Cowboys make a run at Earl Thomas?
A big part of Seattle’s legendary Legion of Boom defense could soon be in Dallas.
Earl Thomas is rumored to have bought a house in Texas and was recently spotted wearing Cowboys gear…could he be headed to Dallas?
The soon-to-be free agent will likely get some attention from the Cowboys, who reportedly have their eyes on him as well, and would be a solid fit in Dallas’ defensive backfield alongside Byron Jones and Chidobe Awuzie.
Is Bruce Irvin returning to Seattle?
The Seahawks need another pass-rusher, and Seattle already knows what veteran Bruce Irvin is capable of producing.
The sack artist, who recently played for the Raiders and Falcons, is set to be a free agent on March 13, and could be a good fit with his former team.
One person definitely wants Irvin back: defensive end Frank Clark. Clark took to Twitter to let Irvin know of the damage the two and Jarran Reed could do with Seattle.
“Me, you and reed,” Clark said with some deathly emojis.
Irvin’s response? “That’s scary 5.”
Irvin spent four years with the Seahawks, tallying 143 tackles, 22 sacks, three interceptions and two touchdowns.
