The Seahawks have agreed to a 1-year deal with free-agent WR Brandon Marshall, ESPN reports. The move comes well after Marshall visited Seattle, but he enters a depth chart with opportunity available. Doug Baldwin is the only incumbent at the position who has surpassed 71 targets in a season. We'll see what Marshall has left after a lackluster pre-injury stint with the Giants. He caught just 18 of 33 targets and averaged 8.6 yards per catch over 5 games. His Seahawks deal could reportedly be worth up to $2 million with incentives, less per-year money than Seattle gave Jaron Brown. Unless Marshall proves totally cooked this summer, though, his arrival complicates the target picture behind Baldwin. Tyler Lockett's later-round ADP will make him a solid upside bet. We'll see where others settle on the depth chart and ADP charts over the next couple of months.
The Seahawks added Michigan WR Amara Darboh in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Born in Sierra Leone, Darboh emerged as his squad’s top WR by his senior year, pacing the Wolverines with 57 catches, 862 yards and 7 TDs. We weren’t overly impressed with his tape, but he does flash some moves to beat press coverage and the ability to make plays in traffic. The 6’2, 214-pounder also tested as an 84th percentile athlete at his position. There’s some long-term upside here, although Darboh is already 23 years old. He’ll spend 2017 as Seattle’s 5th or 6th WR.
