posted by Adam Loewy -

The Seahawks could be looking to move Earl Thomas. (NO SERIOUSLY)! Mike Fisher from 105.3 The Fan in Dallas is reporting that the Seahawks proposed a first-round pick for Thomas. However, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport refuted that report. Thomas, 28, is in his final year of his contract and will make $8.5 million in 2018. Thomas has been vocal about playing for the Cowboys in the future. In December of 2017 after a Seahawks win over the Cowboys, Thomas said to Dallas' Head Coach Sean Garrett, "Come get me." 

The Ndamukong Suh rumors to Seattle continue to heat up, but are the Cowboys also in the mix? The Miami Dolphins cut Suh today and the defensive tackle could be inching closer to a deal with the Seahawks. Suh, 31, was in Seattle on Monday and working out. 

A homecoming for former Washington Husky Tight-End Austin Seferian-Jenkins is still up in the air. Seferian-Jenkins visited the Seahawks, but there was no reported deal between the two sides. Earlier today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport also reported the Seahawks are interested in Carolina Panthers Tight-End Ed Dickson, while Seahawks Tight-End Luke Willson is visiting the Panthers. Willson, 28, has spent his entire career in Seattle, since being drafted in 2013. Seattle is likely in need for some major help at the tight-end with Jimmy Graham inking a deal with the the Green Bay Packers. 

According to multiple reports, the Seahawks are signing Outside Linebacker (OLB) Barkevious Mingo to a two-year contract. However, it is not immediately clear how much money Mingo will earn with the Seahawks. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported via Twitter that Mingo will make $10.1 million, while Aaron Wilson from the Houston Chronicle said he'll earn $6.8 million with incentives. The 2013 sixth overall pick in the draft, spent time with the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, and the Indianapolis Colts. Mingo, 27, started six games last season with the Colts and had 35 tackles, including two sacks, and three forced fumbles. This will be the fourth player the Seahawks signed from the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. 

Former Seahawks Cornerback DeShawn Shead is now a Detroit Lion. Shead signed a one-year deal, worth $3.5 million with playing time incentives that could earn him $6.5 million. The Seahawks cut Shead on Monday with the hopes of re-signing him in free-agency. Shead, 28, played in the secondary from 2012-17, but suffered an ACL injury in the Divisional Playoffs in 2016 against Atlanta, sidelining him for a year.
