Lions sign TE Luke Willson week after releasing Eric Ebron

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 17:29:27 UT

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have signed tight end Luke Willson, adding a potential starter in place of Eric Ebron. Detroit made the move Wednesday, a week after releasing Ebron. Willson has 89 career catches for 1,129 yards with 11 touchdowns in 72 games, all with the Seahawks. He has 13 catches for 154 yards and one score in the playoffs, including two receptions when Seattle routed Denver in the Super Bowl four years ago. Seattle drafted the former Rice standout in the fifth round in 2013. Wilson is from LaSalle, Ontario, which is on the banks of the Detroit River. The Lions opened free agency by making a major move last week, cutting ties with Ebron instead of paying him $8.25 million this season.

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 23:04:54 UT

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have acquired cornerback C.J. Smith from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2020. Smith is another young option in Seattle's secondary. He spent the 2016 season with the Philadelphia Eagles and played sparingly in 2017 with the Browns. He's appeared in 13 career games, with 10 of those coming with the Eagles. Smith played collegiately at North Dakota State, where he was part of five national championship teams, including his redshirt year. The teams made the trade on Monday. ___ For more NFL coverage: and

Seattle signs WR Jaron Brown, S Maurice Alexander

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 00:04:22 UT

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks added depth at both wide receiver and in the secondary by signing wide receiver Jaron Brown and safety Maurice Alexander. Seattle announced both of the signings on Saturday. Brown spent all five of his NFL seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, while Alexander is joining the Seahawks after parts of four seasons with the Rams. Brown could essentially end up being a replacement for Paul Richardson, who left in free agency and signed with Washington. Brown had a career-high 31 receptions and four touchdowns last season with the Cardinals. He averaged 15.4 yards per reception and at 6-foot-2 is a taller receiver than Seattle's had previously.

Seahawks lock up TE Ed Dickson with a 3-year deal

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 23:22:55 UT

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks addressed one of their offseason needs by signing tight end Ed Dickson to a three-year contract. While Dickson isn't intended to be a replacement for Jimmy Graham, he is the kind of tight end Seattle needs if it's going to return to an offense that controls the game with the run. Dickson is an excellent blocker who also was a serviceable pass-catching option during his time in Baltimore and Carolina. Dickson had 30 receptions and one touchdown last season with the Panthers. He spent four seasons with the Panthers after four seasons in Baltimore. It's also a return home for Dickson, who played collegiately at Oregon.

Vikings sign Seahawks' Richardson to bolster defensive line

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 22:43:38 UT

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings found a new offensive coordinator this winter, and they made one of the biggest splashes of the NFL offseason this week by giving quarterback Kirk Cousins a fully guaranteed $84 million contract. There was one more pressing need: a new defensive tackle to play next to two-time Pro Bowl pick Linval Joseph. Sheldon Richardson checked the last of those big boxes. Richardson, the 13th pick in the 2013 draft out of Missouri by the New York Jets who was traded last year to the Seattle Seahawks, signed a one-year contract on Friday after visiting the team's new training facility and deciding the Vikings gave him the best opportunity to chase a championship. "They're trying to win. Period.
