Seahawks to release DeShawn Shead, hope to re-sign him

K.J. Wright feeling pained by Seahawks' sudden defensive purge

He spent most of the 2017 season on the physically-unable-to-perform list after suffering a torn ACL in the 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in the Divisional round of the playoffs the season before. So if his contract were to toll, he'd be signed for 2018 at the same amount.

Shead was released by the Seattle Monday as the team continues to purge players from its defense in a clear youth movement. It's anyone's guess what general manager John Schneider will do on draft day, but it doesn't hurt to speculate with the big day creeping up on us. He signed a three-year deal reportedly worth up to $39.15 million - should he reach several incentives within the contract. "It's them living up to their word, letting DeShawn test the free-agent world, but they have said they'd like to have him come back". "'That means we are living up to our word and we're going to release him, otherwise his contract would be required to toll'". He already has a visit lined up with the Detroit Lions, according to Foster. Through six National Football League seasons, he has two interceptions, 24 passes defensed and 154 tackles in 54 games (22 starts). Shead joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Portland State in 2012, and has been with the team until he release this week.

As noted by ESPN's Brady Henderson, the Seahawks may even put him at strong safety since Kam Chancellor is still dealing with a career-threatening neck injury.

It was also independently determined by Chinese mathematician Zu Chongzhi (429-501), who computed pi to six decimal places. How do people celebrate Pi Day? He started it as a way to make mathematical constants more fun and accessible.

So here it is - my look at how the Seahawks could spend their eight picks during the 2018 NFL Draft.

We all know madness is going to ensue once March 14 arrives.

Cornerback has suddenly become a position of need for Seattle following Sherman's release and that of Lane, which had been expected for some time.
