The Seahawks could be in the market for a new tight-end with Jimmy Graham a free-agent, and likely not re-signing with Seattle. Softy reported earlier today that Austin Seferian-Jenkins was in the Seattle area and working out with Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright. The 25-year-old tight end has obvious connections to Seattle, playing for the Washington Huskies from 2011-13 season. Seferian-Jenkins started 10 games for the New York Jets last year, including 50 receptions 357 yards and three touchdowns.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins is in Seattle as we speak. Don’t be surprised if something gets done with the Hawks.— Dave Softy Mahler (@Softykjr) March 12, 2018
ASJ was working out with KJ and Bobby at Tracy Fords complex this morning. Agent has spoken with the Seahawks. We’ll see https://t.co/IN9JG9lVH8— Dave Softy Mahler (@Softykjr) March 12, 2018
Worth noting that ASJ couldn't officially visit with the Seahawks until Wednesday, per NFL rules. https://t.co/qRgzBFSQ6g— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) March 12, 2018
#Seahawks will have competition if they want to sign hometown TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Source tells me Bears, Jaguars, Colts also interested in former #UWHuskies, Gig Harbor HS star in free agency https://t.co/eljaJmotSk @thenewstribune— Gregg Bell (@gbellseattle) March 12, 2018
Could Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh sign with the Seahawks? Suh was in Seattle today, but it wasn't clear if he was meeting with the Seahawks. The 31-year-old has a large cap hit of $19.1 million in 2017 and $26.1 million in 2018, including $8.5 million guaranteed. Suh started all 16 games last season for the Dolphins, including 29 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles.
Seahawks talking to two Pacific Northwest players with "issues" in the past - TE Austin Sefarian-Jenkins of Gig Harbor/UW and DT Ndamukong Suh of Portland. Both men can help them if AS-J is past his alcohol problems and Suh can control his anger.— Terry Blount (@TBlountSports) March 12, 2018
Yes. There's urgency in Ndamukong Suh's case. Suh's entire $16.985M 2018 base salary isn't guaranteed right now. $8.5M of the $16.985M becomes fully guaranteed on the 5th day of the league year (March 18). https://t.co/wgmXyA24oh— Joel Corry (@corryjoel) March 12, 2018
