The Seahawks have agreed to a one-year, $7 million deal with LB Bobby Wagner, according to multiple reports. This is a high-upside landing spot for Wagner, who became a cap casualty just a year after signing in free agency with the Rams. He returns to a Seattle LB corps that let starter Cody Barton walk in free agency. Incumbent Jordyn Brooks is coming off a Week 17 ACL tear, which could challenge his readiness for the start of the 2023 NFL season. That all means Wagner could open the year as the Seahawks top fantasy LB, with upside well into the position's top 10. We'll keep an eye on the whole situation through the summer.

The Seahawks reached a three-year deal Monday with DL Dre'Mont Jones. According to multiple reports, it carries $51.5 million in total value and $35 million over the first two years. Jones spent his first four seasons with the Broncos. He tallied 10-plus QB hits and at least 5.5 sacks each of the past three years, spending time at both DT and DE. Jones set a career high in fantasy points per game last season. That still landed him toward the bottom of DL3 territory, though. So Jones figures to present limited fantasy upside (outside of deeper leagues) going forward.

The Commanders have agreed to a one-year deal with LB Cody Barton that NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports is fully guaranteed. We don't know how much money yet, and it's likely not a number that locks Barton into a starting role. But there's room for him to earn starter snaps in a defense that might lose LB Cole Holcomb in free agency. Jamin Davis should be the best current bet for full-time snaps among Washington LBs, heading into his third season. Barton didn't play very well in his first starting turn with Seattle in 2022, which is why the team is letting him walk.

Seahawks LB Jordyn Brooks left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets after hurting his right knee. It was a non-contact injury, with Brooks immediately clutching the knee and leaving after planting hard on his right leg. We'll watch for updates but don't expect to see Brooks for the rest of the game.

Update: Seattle has ruled Brooks out for the game.

Seahawks S Ryan Neal (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Jets.

The Seahawks have ruled S Ryan Neal (knee) out for Saturday's game against the Chiefs.

Seahawks S Ryan Neal (knee) is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. He was questionable after missing practice this week with a knee issue, but he played through it last week and missed just 1 snap. Blame the short week for his absences. Barring some word from coaches, Neal looks ready for IDP use.

Seahawks S Ryan Neal (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. We'll check his status Sunday.

Seahawks S Ryan Neal (elbow, shoulder) is active for today's game against the Rams. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

Seahawks S Ryan Neal injured his right elbow in OT of Sunday's loss to the Raiders. HC Pete Carroll said afterward that they didn't know the extent yet, though X-rays came back negative. We'll see about Neal's status heading into a Week 13 visit to the Rams.

Seahawks S Quandre Diggs (knee) is active for today's game against the Falcons.

Seahawks S Quandre Diggs (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He started the week sidelined but progressed to a limited Thursday and then a full Friday workout. We'll check Diggs' status Sunday, but he seems to be trending toward playing. Seattle did rule out DL Shelby Harris (glute).

ESPN's Brady Henderson reports that Seahawks S Jamal Adams will miss the rest of the season with what Henderson calls an injury to the quadriceps tendon in Adams' left leg. The veteran is set for surgery. We'll see about further details of the injury and the expected return timeline. Josh Jones is the next man up at safety for Seattle.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams left in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Broncos after injuring his left knee. Adams went from the sideline to the locker room on the cart, and ESPN reported that he was clearly upset. The team called him doubtful to return. We'll see about the diagnosis.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams broke a finger on the 1st day of training camp. After getting multiple opinions, he'll return to practice with a "special cast" and a club on the hand, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's also "likely" that Adams will need surgery after the season. We'd bet on Adams not being hampered overall by the finger, though playing with a club necessarily makes intercepting passes more difficult. Adams will certainly remain draftable in IDP leagues but doesn't stand out as a target in our DB rankings.

Seattle grabbed EDGE Boye Mafe with the 40th overall pick, in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. Mafe finished his 4-year Minnesota career with 7 sacks among 10 tackles for loss as a senior. He tested as a higher-upside athlete at the Combine, delivering a 97th-percentile speed score at 6'4 and 261 pounds. Landing in Seattle gives him a good shot at immediate playing time.

The Seahawks have agreed to a 3-year, $40 million deal with S Quandre Diggs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's not a surprising move, after Diggs started every game the past 2 years -- following a mid-2019 trade from Detroit -- and snagged 5 INTs in each season. But it means Seattle is spending a whole lot of money on its starting safeties. Jamal Adams is heading into season 2 of a 4-year, $70 million pact. Seattle, of course, trimmed salary on defense by releasing veteran LB Bobby Wagner earlier this month.

Seahawks edge Carlos Dunlap (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. He entered the day questionable.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner sprained the MCL and PCL in his right knee in Sunday's win over the Lions, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Wagner will miss the regular-season finale, but the injury is not expected to affect him beyond that.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner suffered a knee injury early in Sunday's win over the Lions and did not return. We'll see about his outlook for Week 18, but Seattle has nothing to play for in the finale -- other than potentially damaging Arizona's playoff seed.
