First, the parade. Here’s some more info on the overflow situation. If you didn’t act fast yesterday, you could be shut out. The overflow in Safeco Field is filled. The city is going to be packed beyond belief.
A look at the parade route and here are some transit options. The parade starts at 11 a.m. on Denny Way, just south of Seattle Center.
I wrote about the Seahawks’ free agent situation heading into the offseason. You can read that here.
A couple things of note:
> Overthecap.com has a chart showing each team’s projected cap space as currently structured. According to the site, the Seahawks are just $2,201,197 under the cap as constituted for next season.
Here’s a list of the Seahawks’ free agents heading into 2014, along with their age and 2013 cap hit:
|Player||Pos.||Status||Age||2013 cap hit|
A lot in the works for the Seahawks, particularly because they have to look ahead to locking up Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, then, eventually, Russell Wilson.
Here’s what John Schneider said about looking ahead at the cap:
“Probably last spring you know we are looking two to three years ahead so last year we knew we were going to have some things coming and how to handle certain players and to know just where we are headed,” Schneider said. “We put different models together. Matt Thomas does a phenomenal job with it. Figure out the best way to navigate it. They are really good problems to have.”

> Golden Tate said on KJR he would take less money to stay in Seattle instead of getting paid more to go to some “crappy” city. His appearance starts around the 22-minute mark.
> Brian Bosworth sent an email to USA Today after the game. He also delivered a postgame tweet.
