    Thoughts: The Seahawks’ biggest move was re-signing DL Michael Bennett to a four year deal on the eve of the free-agency deadline. Other than making a push for free-agent DE Jared Allen, the Seahawks were relatively quiet in free agency. Reason being is that they signed CB Richard Sherman to a four year extension making him the highest paid player at his respective position. Not only did the Seahawks ink Sherman to a deal; but S Earl Thomas agreed to a four year extension as well; $25M of which is guaranteed. DE Cliff Avril didn’t receive the long term extension that he was hoping for agreeing to a two year extension with the team. CB Byron Maxwell and LB K.J. Wright are next in line for long term deals.
