Seahawks re-sign Mike Morgan

Linebacker Mike Morgan has spent most of his football career playing for Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and their relationship will extend into 2016.

Morgan visited with the Steelers last week, but his time as a free agent ended this weekend when he agreed to a deal that will keep him in Seattle. Morgan has been with the Seahawks since 2011 and also played for Carroll at USC before Carroll left to take the Seattle job before the 2010 season.

Morgan made a couple of starts for the Seahawks last season, but saw the majority of his playing time on special teams. He finished the year with 17 tackles and the first sack of his NFL career.

Morgan could find more playing time on defense this season as the team moves on without Bruce Irvin, who signed with the Raiders as a free agent.

    I think it’s funny that you pay Texas A&M royalties for your ripped off, unoriginal slogan.

    I think it’s funny you wasted the time to comment that. Go back to your flyover state.

    Texas A & M may have came up with the “12th man” but they sure don’t live up to it like the Seahawks fans do.

    Please continue with the hate mail

    In before delusional Seahawks fans talk about how Morgan was better than Irvin so this was a smart move.

    Seahawks have been getting worse every year since their SB. That trend will continue this year.

    ________________
    Texas A&M didn’t come up with it either. They just trademarked it. It’s been used since 1900 University of Minnesota. Every team in football has used it at some point. I still have a jersey I bought in 1985 that says it. Your the only one who’s ever paid someone else to use an idea they stole from someone else. Hilarious. Enjoy your one ring. It’s gonna have to last you awhile.

    Have they signed anyone to protect Wilson? Lynch retired just in time…. He realized the 1-year dynasty was over when Brady lit up the Sehawks for over 350 yards in the SB. Wilson will be lucky if he doesn’t get killed this season.

    It was a one time payment of $5,000. A&M only trademarked the slogan years after the Seahawks retired #12 in honor of their fans at a time no one even knew A&M had a football program.

    The Seahawks retired the number 12 for the fans in 1984, after Sam Adkins retired. It’s been a thing here since the club’s inception. Do you comment on every Colts article with the same tired gibberish, since they’re currently facing a lawsuit over the rights to “12th man” as well?

    Incorrect. The Colts are currently dealing with the lawsuit/licensing process over “12th man”. Get your facts straight.

    Just for all you trolls to consider:

    The Seahawks are returning 9 of 11 starters on the #1 defense in the NFL, and 10 out of 11 backups.

    The Seahawks are returning 8 out of 11 starters on the #5 offense in the NFL.

    As to the OL, they have 9 draft picks in the deepest OL draft in years.

    Oh, and our quarterback is the best player in NFL. Other than that, there is reason to worry in Seattle.

    Enjoy watching the Seahawks in the Super Bowl again next year.

    So have the Patriots. And the Ravens. And the Giants. So will the Broncos.

    But the Seahawks have 9 draft picks, 5 in the first 124 picks.

    Good luck with that trend continuing.

    ******
    I recall your team was eliminated from the playoffs on national television only weeks ago. Why are you embarrassing yourself here and bragging about? All everybody is doing is laughing at you!

    Mike Morgan is depth signing and in fact, the 5 players who left during FA were expected, with a few returning players actually becoming a surprising bonus. That said, it still looks like the offensive line is the area of most concern for the Seahawks.

    Looking forward to seeing how they plan to address it….Draft or Journeymen OL?

  17. bornahawker says: Mar 20, 2016 3:59 PM

    Morgan is special teams and back up linebacker. Ifedi is the pick in first round and Defensive Speed as well as a RB will round this years draft. Seattle rules haters!
    Go Hawks!

    crabwasheld- I prefer it when other teams associate losing non core players to a team not being able to compete. This year’s FA Class was awful thus many players were overpaid. The seahawks built through the draft and a trade here and their. The seahawks are still one of the youngest NFL teams and have an elite top 5 qb. Their window almost can’t close until these lose a qb which the NFL is driven by as we all know but decide not to imply in this case. Last season it was the defense isn’t good Wilson can’t do it. Also without Lynch Wilson is below average obviously both things were wrong. So while we follow what happens on the field we have to consider Pete and John are playing chess while most of these posters have a checkers mind looking right in front of their face instead of down the road. The seahawks should and are considered one of the top 2-3 teams to win the Sb and that’s with all the coaching defections last off season and Lynch gone and others. I think vegas knows something you might not lol..
