Here's an updated look at Seattle's free agent situation as of Friday.

We’re now 10 days into the free agency signing period so time again to update the free agent tracker.


G James Carpenter, 864 snaps played in 2014: Seattle’s starting left guard last season, he signed a four-year contract with the New York Jets valued at almost $20 million.

CB Byron Maxwell,  717 snaps: Maxwell signed a six-year deal worth as much as $63 million with the Eagles.

DT Kevin Williams, 455 snaps: A story out of Minnesota last week indicated that Williams still wants to play and that the Seahawks have interest in bringing him back. But the signing of Athyba Rubin would seem to indicate that Williams’ time in Seattle may be done.

DE O’Brien Schofield, 341 snaps: Schofield signed a one-year deal with Atlanta where former Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is now the head coach worth $1.7 million.

LB Malcolm Smith, 286 snaps: The Super Bowl MVP a year ago signed a two-year deal with Oakland to play for the Raiders and new defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr., his position coach with the Seahawks as well as at USC. It’s worth a reported $3.75 million.

C Lemuel Jeanpierre, 227: Will the Max Unger trade make it more likely that Seattle would want to bring back Jeanpierre? We’ll see. He was brought back at mid-season when the center spot got hit hard by injuries, he was the third-team center at the end of the year behind Max Unger and Patrick Lewis. He’s been a trusted player for Seattle since 2010. But Lewis’ emergence might mean the Seahawks will move on. Seattle also recently signed free agent center Jared Wheeler.

TE Tony Moeaki, 206: The trade for Jimmy Graham — and the team’s subsequent announcement that he would wear the same No. 88 worn last season by Moeaki — made it clear Moeaki was headed elsewhere. That happened Thursday when Moeaki signed a one-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons, where Dan Quinn is now the head coach.

C Steve Schilling, 205: Schilling, who ended the season on IR with a knee injury, had been viewed as unlikely to return and has yet to sign anywhere.

DL/FB Will Tukuafu, 160: Tukuafu played both ways in the Super Bowl and was the team’s starting fullback the second half of the season after being signed when Derrick Coleman was lost for the year at St. Louis with a broken foot. He’s yet to sign anywhere, but Seattle could be content to go into the season with Coleman at fullback, assuming he is healthy, or maybe signing or drafting another fullback later.

LS Clint Gresham, 142: Gresham, the ultra-dependable long snapper for Seattle since 2010, was re-signed to a three-year deal worth a total of $2.7 million on Friday, including a $300,000 signing bonus.

DE Demarcus Dobbs, 69: Dobbs, who played some valuable snaps down the stretch, has yet to be re-signed and the Seahawks have looked at a few other ends as well. But that remains a spot where the Seahawks need bodies so he could be back.

S Jeron Johnson, 98: It was known from the start that Johnson would likely look to leave for some place where he had a better chance of playing. And that’s what happened as he signed a two-year contract worth $4 million with Washington.

QB Tarvaris Jackson, 3: Jackson took a visit this week to Miami. But on Friday the Dolphins re-signed Matt Moore to be their backup QB in 2015, leaving Jackson still looking. Considering that Seattle has said it wants him back, the stars would indicate he may be soon.

DL Landon Cohen, 0: Cohen, signed late in the season, saw action in the final two payoff games. Seattle needs depth up front so maybe he’s back.

TE Anthony McCoy, 0: McCoy, who missed a second consecutive season with an Achilles injury, signed a one-year deal to stay with Seattle through 2015.

LB Heath Farwell, 0: Farwell was on IR all of last season after suffering groin injury in pre-season and spent the year helping coach. He said at the Super Bowl he’d like to play again. Farwell reiterated he wants to keep playing in a Minnesota newspaper story last week and said the Seahawks had shown some interest in bringing him back.

DL D’Anthony Smith, 0: McCoy, on IR all last season with a biceps injury, signed a one-year deal earlier this week.


WR Jermaine Kearse, 821 snaps: Seattle gave Kearse a second-round tender, guaranteeing him $2.35 million in 2015 and the Seahawks a second-round pick if he signs a bigger deal elsewhere. He could later sign a longer-team deal with Seattle, as Doug Baldwin did after initially being given a second-round tender.

WR Bryan Walters, 108: The team did not tender Walters and he became an unrestricted free agent and signed with Jacksonville.

DL Greg Scruggs, 68: Scruggs signed a one-year contract worth a total of $785,000 with a salary of $660,000.

LB Mike Morgan, 27: Morgan signed a one-year contract Monday to stay with Seattle.


WR Ricardo Lockette, 273: Lockette was given a qualifying offer of $660,000 to stay with Seattle in 2015.

DB DeShawn Shead, 93: Shead was also given a qualifying offer to stay with Seattle.


CB Will Blackmon: Blackmon signed a one-year deal worth a total of $950,000, a low-risk signing of a trusted veteran to add experienced depth.

CB Cary Williams: Williams, a starter the last two years with the Eagles, signed a three-year deal worth a reported $18 million, with $7 million guaranteed, and could become the other starter opposite Richard Sherman to replace the departing Byron Maxwell.

DT Ahtyba Rubin: Rubin became the first official unrestricted free agent to sign with the Seahawks this year — Blackmon and Williams had each been released by their teams rather than simply having their contracts run out — when he agreed to a one-year contract worth $3.1 million with Seattle on Thursday. Rubin, who had played for the Browns since 2008, will compete for playing time, if not a starting job, at nose tackle and could also play some three-technique tackle.


TE Jimmy Graham: Seattle pulled off one of the blockbuster moves of the first day of free agency with the trade for Graham. He is expected in Seattle on Wednesday afternoon to take a physical.


OL Shelley Smith: A backup guard for the Dolphins last season — he started in three of the 11 games in which he played — Smith visited Seattle but ended up signing with Denver.

C Steven Wisniewski: A starter at center for Oakland the last three years, Wisniewski visited Seattle last week. He also visited Tampa Bay and St. Louis and also reportedly had interest from the Bears. He has yet to sign, but signings sometimes take longer during the second wave of free agency as pool of players shrinks. Wisniewski may be biding his time to get the best offer, with teams also waiting it out as well.

DE Anthony Spencer: It has been confirmed that Spencer visited Seattle on Tuesday. But so far, no movement toward a contract. Spencer had 11 sacks as recently as 2012 but has battled a knee issue the last two years — he had microfracture surgery in 2013. It’s not expected that Dallas will re-sign him with the Cowboys having made other moves (Greg Hardy, for one).
