Ziggy Ansah told 710 ESPN Seattle Wednesday that he's made "great progress" with his surgically-repaired shoulder, but he stopped well short of putting any timetable on his return to the field. The Seahawks believe there's a good chance Ansah, whom they signed last week, will be ready by Week 1. "I'm just going to take it a day at a time," Ansah said. "I don't have no timeline as of right now. I'm just waiting to see what the doctor is going to say, but until then, I'm putting in the work every day to get the body right."

The Seahawks have signed quarterback Geno Smith, the team announced. He'll join Paxton Lynch in the competition to back up Russell Wilson. They're the three quarterbacks on Seattle's roster after the team waived UDFA Taryn Christion. ESPN's Jordan Raanan reported earlier in the week that the Seahawks were expected to sign Smith.

The Seahawks signed four more draft picks: receivers Gary Jennings (fourth) and John Ursua (seventh), running back Travis Homer (sixth) and defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas (sixth). Three of their 11 picks are unsigned: defensive end L.J. Collier (first), receiver DK Metcalf (second) and linebacker Cody Barton (third).

Cornerback Jamar Taylor and guard Marcus Martin each got one-year, minimum-salary-benefit deals from the Seahawks, a source tells ESPN.com. Taylor's is for $895,000 with a $25,000 signing bonus and a $65,000 roster bonus if he's on the 53-man roster in Week 1. His cap number is $735,000. Martin's is for $805,000 with no guarantees. His cap number is $645,000.

Fullback Nick Bellore's deal with the Seahawks is for two years and $2.23 million with $600,000 guaranteed, a source tells ESPN.com. He got a $300,000 signing bonus and $300,000 of his $930,000 2019 base salary fully guaranteed. His $1 million 2020 base salary is non-guaranteed. The Seahawks are among the NFL teams that still use a fullback and they're paying a decent amount of money to Bellore, which indicates he's a good bet to make the team. A converted linebacker, Bellore also figures to factor heavily on special teams.

The Seahawks have made their signing of defensive tackle Al Woods official. They announced that move and waived two undrafted free agents, quarterback Taryn Christion and tight end Mik'Quan Deane. That leaves an open spot on their 90-man roster.

This Just In  

Former Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin posted a long series of Tweets Sunday night indicating he was retiring, including a "Game of Thrones" GIF reading "My watch has ended". After offseason surgeries and the termination of his contract last week by the Sehawks because of a failed physical (see story below), Adam Schefter reported that while Baldwin want3ed to continue playing he may not be able to do so.

Quarterback Taryn Christion, receiver Terry Wright and corneracks Derrek Thomas and Davante Davis tied for the largest signing bonuses among the Seahawks' 12 undrafted free agents. They each received $10,000, according to a source. That only means so much. Last year, receiver Ka'Raun White got the second-highest signing bonus ($14,000) of Seattle's UDFAs and was waived right after rookie minicamp. So a big signing bonus says as much about a player's post-draft market as it says about his chances of making the team. The signing bonuses for Seattle's other UDFAs: $8,000 for receiver Jazz Ferguson and guard Demetrius Knox; $5,000 for tight ends Mik'Quan Deane and Justin Johnson; $3,000 for defensive tackle Jay-Tee Tiuli; $2,000 for safety Jalen Harvey; $1,800 for running back Adam Choice; $1,000 for defensive tackle Bryan Mone. None of the 12 had any of their base salaries guaranteed.

Seahawks add DT Woods to revamped D-line

Already having added pass-rusher Ezekiel Ansah, the Seahawks filled their need for a run-stuffing presence Friday, agreeing to terms with veteran Al Woods.

The Seahawks have agreed to terms with defensive tackle Al Woods, according to his agency. It's another late addition to their defensive line. They got a pass-rusher in Ziggy Ansah and now a run-stuffer in Woods, who's 32 years old and has played for five teams over his nine seasons, including a two-game stint with Seattle in 2011. He'll be in line to play alongside Jarran Reed in base situations.

The Ziggy Ansah move is official. He signed his one-year contract with the Seahawks today. “I am really motivated right now,” Ansah told Seahawks.com. "Not that I wasn't motivated before, but I'm just super excited to be part of the Seahawks.” They released defensive end Nate Orchard to make room on their 90-man roster. Orchard had no guaranteed money in the one-year minimum salary deal he signed last month.

According to Elias, here's where Doug Baldwin's receiving numbers rank all time among undrafted players: seventh in receptions (493), 12th in yards (6,563) and tied for seventh in touchdowns (49). According to ESPN Stats & Info, those figures ranked second behind Antonio Gates among former UDFAs who were active in 2018. Also from SIG: Since Russell Wilson's rookie year in 2012, he and Baldwin have connected for the fourth-most receptions (436) of any quarterback-receiver combination.

Seahawks released veteran S Kam Chancellor and WR Doug Baldwin with failed physical designations. End of an era in Seattle.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks have terminated the contracts of Doug Baldwin and Kam Chancellor, the team announced Thursday. It was an expected move with Chancellor, who suffered a career-ending neck injury in 2017 and has only been kept on the roster since then for salary-cap purposes. Baldwin's future was up in the air after an injury-riddled 2018 season that led to a pair of offseason surgeries and another procedure on his knee. Said GM John Schneider in a statement: "These are two of the most iconic players in franchise history and both were instrumental in establishing our championship culture, great examples of competitiveness and leadership on the field and in the community. These legendary players will always be a part of our Seahawks family."
