The Seattle Seahawks offseason is underway sort of. They won't make decisions on players to release until after the Super Bowl. But Seattle is currently looking for their next head coach after the team moved on from long-term head coach Pete Carroll after the season ended.
That change of coach could slightly affect some dates for the team this offseason. Teams with new head coaches can get a jump on other teams who didn't lose their coach when it comes to offseason workouts. Of course, there won't be tackling during these workouts, but at least it lets the players get to know their new coach.
The hope is that Seattle will have their coaching search completed by next week. That is just a guess on my part, and the Seahawks might want to wait on coaches such as Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson and Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald. Both work for teams still involved in the playoffs.
