Prediction: Seahawks fans should rest easy as Jamal Adams will be extended

The Seattle Seahawks gave up way too much for safety Jamal Adams not to extend him past 2021. I mean, that is the case, right? Two first round picks, a third round choice, plus? Well, you know, it’s so hard to keep up with what Seattle gave to the Jets for Adams and where those […] Prediction: Seahawks fans should rest easy as Jamal Adams will be extended - 12th Man Rising - 12th Man Rising - Seattle Seahawks News and Fan Community

Seahawks 2021 NFL draft: Targets at offensive tackle for Seattle

While it may not be seen as a position where obvious help is needed, the Seahawks may end up taking an offensive tackle in the draft.  This move is especially likely if the team decides to move down to bolster the small amount of draft capital it currently holds.  But why should the Seahawks even […] Seahawks 2021 NFL draft: Targets at offensive tackle for Seattle - 12th Man Rising - 12th Man Rising - Seattle Seahawks News and Fan Community

Why Seahawks signing Aldon Smith is a great move

Only 24 hours after it was reported Aldon Smith was visiting the Seahawks, they’ve signed him to a one-year deal. The details of Smith‘s deal are still unclear, but I would guess the deal is somewhere in the $2.5 million dollar range.  This is a great bargain for a team whose defense was historically bad […] Why Seahawks signing Aldon Smith is a great move - 12th Man Rising - 12th Man Rising - Seattle Seahawks News and Fan Community

NFL 2021 draft: Why Seahawks must take Benjamin St-Juste

The Seahawks need to find a long-term answer at cornerback starting no later than 2022. Taking Benjamin St-Juste would be a step in the right direction. Pete Carroll likes big cornerbacks and Seattle has been successful with them. Richard Sherman, to name one, but Brandon Browner to name another. And St-Juste is a big corner.

Draft targets for the Seahawks at the number 56 pick

There’s some speculation that the Seahawks will move back from the number 56 overall pick come April 30, and it wouldn’t come as any surprise given that, historically, John Schneider and Pete Carroll have been better at finding hidden gems in the middle rounds than selecting from the top prospects in the class. However, as […] Draft targets for the Seahawks at the number 56 pick - 12th Man Rising - 12th Man Rising - Seattle Seahawks News and Fan Community

Seahawks should not let Aldon Smith leave town without signing him

Aldon Smith is reportedly visiting the Seahawks on Wednesday. Seattle needs to not let Smith leave Seattle without adding him to the roster. In fact, Smith would be a perfect signing for Seattle as he would not have to be the focal point of the pass rush leaving him more room to create havoc.

A realistic Seattle Seahawks mock draft with trades

The Seahawks are going to need to be creative to try and dip into this very talented NFL draft class. I want to say they were dealt a bad hand this off-season. However, it was more self-inflicted than anything else. Trades completely depleted their draft stock. They acquired a lot of proven talent. However, those […] A realistic Seattle Seahawks mock draft with trades - 12th Man Rising - 12th Man Rising - Seattle Seahawks News and Fan Community

Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara will host a one-hour special on NBC on Sunday called “Roll Up Your Sleeves.” This is just another reason Wilson is awesome.

Seahawks NFL draft 2021: Boogie Basham would be perfect fit

A team can never have enough defensive line talent. The Seahawks drafting Boogie Basham would be a good fit for 2021 and a perfect one in future seasons. Basham has NFL-strength already but needs to work on his footwork but what he would offer Seattle is a Michael Bennett-type player.
