Kam Chancellor, finally surgery-free: “This is the strongest offseason I’ve had”

The Seahawks are back on the field today for the third of their three days this week of organized team activities at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton. Quarterback Russell Wilson was expected to participate for the first time this week after being with Jimmy Graham in Miami Monday to attend the funeral of Graham’s mentor and manager, and after Wilson attended the funeral of the father of fellow teammate Cliff Avril Thursday in Jacksonville.

Kam Chancellor was back on the field, too, as he’s been all week. That is one of

    There they go: Free agents Byron Maxwell, Malcolm Smith, James Carpenter join new teams

    Now, the flip side of signing free agent Cary Williams and trading for top tight end Jimmy Graham on the first day of NFL free agency.

    He looked like an Eagle — albeit a young coach, wearing one of their coaching shirts and a matching, green team cap. And he sounded like one, thanking Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly and owner Jeffrey Lurie for giving him $70 million with $25 million of it guaranteed as the top free-agent cornerback in the NFL this year.

    After Super Bowl breakout, how much is Chris Matthews an option at wide receiver in 2015?

    It didn’t register as anything more than a roster move at the time, just another promotion to the active roster. But when the Seahawks signed Chris Matthews off their practice squad on December 6, they as a procedure added a second season to the non-vested wide receiver’s contract. He is currently signed for 2015 at $510,000.

    How much will he and they put that contract to use this fall?

    Matthews recovered the onside kick late in regulation that allowed Seattle to take the lead in its eventual overtime win over Green Bay in the NFC championship game Jan. 18. Then

    Seahawks announce promotion of Kris Richard to defensive coordinator; bring Lofa Tatupu back as asst LBs coach

    The technician that has grounded the “Legion of Boom” in fundamentals will now get the chance to do the same with the Seahawks’ entire, top-ranked defense.

    The team announced this afternoon what became known last week: the Seahawks have promoted Kris Richard from defensive backs coach to defensive coordinator. Richard replaces Dan Quinn, who left last week after two seasons on the job to become the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.

    “Kris, we go way back to his playing days at USC, as well as here. Kris has done an extraordinary job,” coach Pete Carroll said, days before the Super

    Seahawks “Legion of Boom” on former member Brandon Browner: “It’s his competitive nature”

    The “Legion of Boom’s” defector wants his former legionnaires targeted.

    The Seahawks’ response? Of course he does.

    New England cornerback Brandon Browner won Super Bowl 48 with the Seahawks last year. Here at Super Bowl 49, Browner is wanting to win another — while teammates on offense further injure Richard Sherman, who is recovering a sprained elbow, and Earl Thomas, who is healing a dislocated shoulder.

    “At the end of the day, this is about the Super Bowl,” Browner told ESPN. “I’m gonna tell my teammates to go hit that elbow, go hit that shoulder. …

    Good morning.

    Let’s get rolling with Seahawks stuff:

    > My advance of the game talks about a lot of the “bad blood” quotes are coming out of San Francisco while the Seahawks sit back and let it be. Maybe that’s because the 49ers need this game much more than Seattle.

    > Our Dave Boling writes about the stunning lack of yardage allowed by the punt team. I know we’ve touched on this prior, but the numbers just continue to get more ridiculous. From Boling:
