Seattle Seahawks trying to trade DE Michael Bennett

"I told you guys when we got here in 2010, we are going to be in every deal", Schneider said. I really feel confident that we've done that. Tough decisions could await on the defensive side of the ball as well as injuries to aging stars could complicate matters significantly. Seattle is expected to re-sign free agent Bradley McDougald, who can play either safety spot, and previous year drafted safeties Delano Hill and Tedric Thompson, each of whom were intriguingly mentioned by Schneider on Friday.

Seattle could see a lot of turnover in the offseason, but there is still a lot of depth on the defensive line.

But that trade was later amended when Easley failed his physical due to kidney issues and he would never play again.

Pete Carroll's Seahawks missed the playoffs in 2017 so his comments Thursday at National Football League scouting combine were the public remarks about what has already been a busy 2018 offseason.

Bennett's contract has three years remaining, with base salaries of $1.65 million, $6 million and $7.5 million, according to ESPN's Roster Management System. "They were in eighth grade" when the Seahawks rose to prominence. Avril and cornerback Jeremy Lane are among the most likely candidates to be released to create cap space.

Otherwise, about the only other thing that comes close is when Seattle dealt receiver Joey Galloway -who had 1,000 or more yards in three of the four full seasons he played with Seattle and was the team's first-round pick in 1995 - to Dallas for two first-round picks.

"Really great diversity in his background", Carroll said. "There's a number of reasons why".

And equally intriguing, in one of the few direct answers Carroll gave Thursday, he admitted the team would consider using DeShawn Shead at safety instead of cornerback, assuming he re-signs. We had some unfortunate situations with injuries and personnel stuff that didn't allow us to stay with the direction we had the couple years before and hopefully we wanted to capture that and regain that. "That's part of the game".

The offseason has already produced significant change to the team's coaching staff. Potentially drastic changes to the roster could soon follow as well, though it's uncertain just how cavalier the team will be in reshaping their personnel for 2018.
