Richard Sherman remains jailed on suspicion of DUI, pending court appearance

Former NFL All-Pro Richard Sherman remained jailed Sunday morning in Washington state after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

He was taken to King County Correctional Facility in Seattle on Saturday at about 4:30 a.m. local time. Sherman is expected to make a court appearance on Monday, at which point a judge can decide whether to grant bail.

Sherman, 35, was stopped around 2 a.m. on Interstate 405 in the Seattle suburb of Renton for allegedly driving 79 mph in a 60 mph zone, The Seattle Times reported, citing an arrest report.

Per the report, he told Washington State Police troopers that he had consumed two margaritas. While refusing to take a breathalyzer test, he agreed to voluntary tests, and the troopers saw signs that Sherman was under the influence, The Times said.

A member of the NFL’s all-decade team for the 2010a, Sherman was a five-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time first-team All-Pro defensive back.

Selected in the fifth round by Seattle out of Stanford, he played 11 NFL seasons for the Seahawks (2011-17), San Francisco 49ers (2018-20) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2021). He recorded 37 interceptions, returned three for touchdowns, forced five fumbles and recovered seven while totaling 495 tackles in 144 games (136 starts).

The leader of the Seahawks’ “Legion of Boom” secondary, he won Super Bowl XLVIII with Seattle over the Denver Broncos in the 2013 season.

Sherman has been an analyst for Amazon Prime Thursday night pregame and postgame shows for two seasons, and he joined Fox Sports’ “Undisputed” talk show in 2023.

He pleaded guilty on March 7, 2022, to first-degree negligent driving, second-degree criminal trespass and speeding in a construction zone in a July 2021 incident in Redmond, Wash., a Seattle suburb. According to media reports, he received a 90-day suspended sentence with two years of monitored supervision, and the two-year period has not expired.

Report: Seahawks restructure QB Geno Smith’s contract

The Seattle Seahawks created $4.8 million in salary cap space by restructuring quarterback Geno Smith’s contract, ESPN reported Thursday.

The Seahawks on Feb. 16 guaranteed Smith’s $12.7 million salary for next season but have since converted a $9.6 million roster bonus due in mid-March into a signing bonus to be spread out over the next two seasons.

His cap hit in 2024 went from $31.2 million to $26.4 million — the 15th-highest in the league among quarterbacks — and the 2025 cap hit increased to $38.5 million, ESPN reported.

Smith, 33, had signed a three-year contract extension in March 2023.

The NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2022, Smith has been steady at the position over the past two seasons for the Seahawks since replacing Russell Wilson as the starter. A Pro Bowl selection in both 2022 and 2023, he threw for 3,624 yards with 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions last season.

Prayers answered, Seahawks welcome head coach Mike Macdonald

Forgive Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider for the confession that he was in church praying for the Baltimore Ravens to lose in the AFC Championship Game.

But it was the only result that could have made introducing Baltimore defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald as Seattle’s new coach on Thursday a reality.

Schneider interviewed Macdonald and Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson after their respective teams lost on Sunday, falling one win shy of the Super Bowl. With ownership blessing his decision, Schneider helped shift Macdonald’s mood and offered the 36-year-old a six-year contract in a “leap of faith” change of direction from 72-year-old Pete Carroll.

“This is a humbling, humbling feeling that I’m feeling right now in front of everybody,” Macdonald said. “I understand where this organization wants to go. And I feel like we’re aligned on how we want to get there. and just juiced to go do it.”

Macdonald’s meteoric rise in coaching ranks largely was a prolonged climb up the ladder in Baltimore, where he spent nine of the past 10 seasons with a one-year hiatus serving as Jim Harbaugh’s defensive coordinator at Michigan. He built the Ravens’ defense into the top-ranked unit in the NFL this season and brings a feather in his cap of demoralizing rival San Francisco in December. He also interviewed in January to be head coach of the Washington Commanders, Los Angeles Chargers, Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons and Tennessee Titans.

The Chiefs scored 17 points to beat the Ravens in the AFC title game, and not many did better against Macdonald this season. His defense became the first to lead the league in points allowed per game (16.5), sacks (60) and takeaways (31) in 2023.

Macdonald plans to continue as the primary defensive playcaller while tackling head-coaching duties for the first time 14 years after being hired as a graduate assistant at the University of Georgia. He described the sense of knowing it was the right fit with Seattle and Schneider during their first interview in Baltimore last month. Schneider said he had the same first impression, but was muted by NFL rules prohibiting further talks with assistant coaches whose teams were still playing.

“He crushed it, we flew back here and it was on,” Schneider said. “It was natural — easy and clear.

“Mike is a learning networker, not a climbing networker. When you sit down with him, you know why.”

Macdonald said he plans to hire a coordinator and playcaller on the other side of the ball who will install a “physical and explosive” brand of offense, with candidates already in queue.

“We’re not sure what we’re good at yet,” Macdonald said.

Seattle is projected $4 million over the salary cap entering free agency and has significant decisions to make. One involves quarterback Geno Smith, who turned in a wretched performance — 13 of 28, four sacks, one interception — in a 37-3 loss to the Ravens this season. Schneider revealed Thursday that game was one of two instances that left him saying “We’ll never look like this again.”

Schneider has credited Smith with helping the Seahawks rebound quickly from trading Russell Wilson, and echoed the importance of maintaining the positive culture Carroll helped instill over 14 seasons that included two Super Bowl appearances and one Lombardi Trophy. And releasing Smith comes with a cap hit over $30 million for 2024.

“We want to keep our positive culture,” Schneider said. “Everything that’s been created here, everything in this building. There are so many special people in this building. It’s amazing to be on the phone with all of these agents and people that are interested in this position, and to be able to explain to them like, ‘Hey. There’s a foundation here and it’s incredible.’”

Eagles, Seahawks aim to get back to winning on MNF

Despite back-to-back losses, the Philadelphia Eagles are still tied for first place in the NFC East and in contention for the conference’s top playoff seed.

With four consecutive defeats, the Seattle Seahawks have gone from atop the NFC West to needing to make up ground for a wild-card playoff berth.

So plenty will be on the line when the Eagles (10-3) visit the Seahawks (6-7) in the first NFL game to be flexed to Monday night.

“You don’t win without some type of adversity,” Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts said. “That’s just the name of it. We’d love to come out here and be perfect. But perfection is only an illusion.”

The schedule over the past month has been difficult for both teams.

The Eagles defeated Kansas City and Buffalo, then lost to San Francisco and Dallas, allowing the host Cowboys to pull into a first-place tie in the division with a 33-13 victory last Sunday night.

“We’ve played a lot of high-profile games here before and executed well. I don’t think it is the magnitude,” Eagles center Jason Kelce said after his team lost three fumbles to Dallas. “These are good teams, and you can’t make mistakes against good teams. We’ve done far too much of that.”

The Eagles have games against Seattle and Arizona and two against the New York Giants remaining. Those three teams have a combined record of 14-25.

“You can’t even look that far ahead,” Eagles receiver A.J. Brown said. “We play Seattle (this) week. That’s the only thing we need to worry about.”

The Eagles are relatively healthy, with only cornerback Darius Slay (knee), linebacker Zach Cunningham (knee) and offensive lineman Cameron Jurgens (pectoral) missing practice this week.

The Seahawks have lost twice in the past three weeks to the division-leading 49ers, including 28-16 last Sunday in Santa Clara, Calif., as Drew Lock started in place of injured quarterback Geno Smith (groin).

Seattle’s skid is its longest since Pete Carroll took over as coach in 2010.

“That was just really frustrating because this was a chance to beat these guys at their place. We had a shot to do that,” Carroll said of the last game against the 49ers, in which the Seahawks allowed 527 total yards. “We moved the football well enough to get some points on the board. We weren’t able to stop them all (day) long. We didn’t get it done.”

Smith returned to practice in a limited capacity Thursday and the Seahawks are hopeful he can return with an extra day’s rest. Safety Jamal Adams (knee), linebackers Jordyn Brooks (ankle) and Nick Bellore (knee) and cornerback Devon Witherspoon (hip) have missed practice time.

“It’s a challenge at this point of the season to see if we can make it through (to the playoffs),” Carroll said. “The fourth quarter of this season is still there for us, and we’ll see if we can. I believe these guys are going to bounce back and be ready to go again. We’ve got to get back on track.”

Seahawks run it back with Geno Smith

2022 record: 9-8, second NFC West

Playoff picture: Seattle might have a shot at another postseason berth, but do the Seahawks have a shot at winning the NFC West? If the 49ers stand in the way, note Seattle went 0-3 against San Francisco last season, including a playoff loss.

Biggest Week 1 question: Quarterback Geno Smith enters the season secure as a starter after being in prove-it mode last season. His performance (4,282 yards, 30 touchdowns) earned him a three-year, $75 million deal. Smith is the Seahawks’ leader after being a draft bust earlier in his career with the New York Jets.

What’s new: Linebacker Bobby Wagner is back after one season with the Los Angeles Rams. He was an eight-time Pro Bowler in 10 seasons in Seattle. Cornerback Devon Witherspoon was picked in the first round (fifth overall) with one of the picks the Seahawks got from the Denver Broncos in the Russell Wilson trade, and head coach Pete Carroll drew immediate comparisons to Hall of Fame safety Troy Polamalu. Receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba was selected 20th overall, but is recovering from a broken wrist. Safety Julian Love, linebacker Devin Bush and defensive linemen Dre’Mont Jones were among Seattle’s free-agent signees.

They’re gone: Former first-round pick Rashaad Penny and fellow running back Travis Homer moved on, but the backfield could be OK after the Seahawks snagged Zach Charbonnet in the second round to team with holdover Kenneth Walker III. Linebacker Cody Barton (136 tackles) also departed but Seattle welcomed back Bobby Wagner.

On the money: Who knew Seattle could have a better team by trading Wilson and elevating Smith. Safety Jamal Adams played in just one game in 2022 due to a torn quadriceps tendon and the three-time Pro Bowler is looking for better fortune this season, but won’t be available Week 1. Adding Smith-Njigba gives Smith another weapon in addition to DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Charbonnet could quickly become a key complement to Walker, who was a force as a rookie.

Get to know: Witherspoon is projected to be an eventual stud in the secondary but he didn’t get on the field in the preseason. Witherspoon injured a hamstring and it isn’t clear if he will be ready for the opener.

Seattle grabbed him early in the draft due to his strong skillset and solid athleticism. He may have to be broken in slowly due to the injury but might be a starter by midseason. Witherspoon had three interceptions last season while earning consensus All-American honors at Illinois.

Vegas says: BetMGM set the Seahawks at 8.5 wins (-150).

With Seahawks up next, Cardinals know they need to make move now

If the Arizona Cardinals are to make a move in the NFC West this season, now would be the time to do it.

The last-place Cardinals (3-5) will host the division-leading Seattle Seahawks (5-3) on Sunday, followed by games against the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers.

“Obviously, not a lot of wiggle room left, with three division games and where we’re at record-wise,” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said. “If you are able to win all three, there’s an opportunity to be right there and have a piece of first place at the end of this deal. Our guys understand that after starting the way we did, that’s a great carrot out in front of you.”

The return of receiver DeAndre Hopkins from a six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy against performance-enhancing drugs has sparked Arizona’s offense — he had 12 catches for 159 yards and a touchdown last week — but Kyler Murray threw two costly second-half interceptions in a 34-26 loss at Minnesota. Murray passed for 326 yards and a season-high three touchdowns.

“We’ve got to go back to the drawing board and practice better,” Hopkins said. “You guys see that we are right there and not getting blown out. This was one of the best teams in the NFL, and we had a chance to win.”

The Cardinals and Seahawks met three weeks ago in Seattle, with the hosts prevailing 19-9. Arizona’s lone touchdown came when its special teams fell on a fumble by Seahawks punter Michael Dickson in the end zone.

That was the beginning of a renaissance for Seattle’s then-No. 32 ranked defense. The Seahawks allowed one touchdown in last week’s 27-13 victory against the visiting New York Giants — on a 2-yard drive after a lost fumble.

“Confidence and swagger,” veteran linebacker Bruce Irvin said of Seattle’s defensive turnaround. “Guys are finally believing in themselves, are believing in one another, and if we have a messed-up play, we don’t dwell on it, we move on to the next play.”

Rookie Kenneth Walker III rushed for a fourth-quarter touchdown and quarterback Geno Smith threw for two TDs as Seattle won its third consecutive game.

After trading away Russell Wilson in the offseason, most prognosticators figured it would be the Seahawks in last place midway through the season, not first.

“I hate that we were crappy early in the year and we weren’t doing stuff right, but we held on to it and we knew — we felt like we knew where we could go, and we’re getting going,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “All the people that doubt — we run the ball too much, you don’t understand football and he can’t stay up with the new game and all that kind of stuff — that’s a bunch of crap, I’m telling you.

“We’re doing fine. We’re all right. I don’t mind proving it day in and day out.”

The Seahawks, who are 7-1-1 in their past nine games at Arizona, are relatively healthy. Only wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and outside linebacker Darrell Taylor missed practice, both with groin injuries.

The Cardinals placed running back Darrel Williams (hip) on injured reserve Wednesday. They also had three offensive linemen miss practice time this week — Rodney Hudson (knee), Max Garcia (shoulder) and D.J. Humphries (back). On defense, safety Budda Baker (ankle), cornerback Christian Matthew (hamstring) and lineman Jonathan Ledbetter (ribs) have also been sidelined.

Geno Smith leads Seahawks past Lions in high-scoring affair

Geno Smith completed 23 of 30 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for a score as the Seattle Seahawks defeated the host Detroit Lions 48-45 Sunday afternoon.

Rashaad Penny rushed for 151 yards on 17 carries with two touchdowns, including a 41-yarder with 2:14 remaining. Penny also scored from 36 yards on a third-and-16 play as the Seahawks (2-2) amassed 235 yards on the ground.

DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett combined for 13 receptions for 240 yards.

Detroit’s Jared Goff was 26 of 39 for 378 yards and four touchdowns, though he threw an interception on the first play from scrimmage in the second half that was returned by rookie Tariq Woolen 40 yards for a touchdown.

Goff threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Justin Jackson with 1:06 remaining to pull the Lions within three points, but Seattle’s DeeJay Dallas recovered the ensuing onside kick and the Seahawks were able to run out the clock.

Tight end T.J. Hockenson made eight catches for 179 yards and two TDs for the Lions (1-3) and Jamaal Williams rushed 19 times for 108 yards and two more scores, including a 51-yarder.

Trailing 38-23, Goff completed an 81-yard pass to Hockenson on the final play of the third quarter to Seattle’s 4-yard line.

Two plays later, Goff threw a 3-yard TD pass to Josh Reynolds in the back of the end zone and a two-point conversion to Hockenson to make it 38-31.

After a Seattle field goal, Goff hit Hockenson with a 4-yard scoring strike to pull the Lions with three with 5:26 left, but they couldn’t get any closer.

Smith was 12 of 14 for two TDs and also rushed for a score in the first half, guiding the Seahawks to a 24-15 lead.

The TD passes went to tight ends, with Will Dissly scoring from 17 yards and Noah Fant from 2 yards. Smith also scored on an 8-yard quarterback draw, rushing untouched up the middle.

Geno Smith wins Seahawks’ QB competition

Two days after saying he was in no hurry to decide on the Seahawks’ starting quarterback, Seattle coach Pete Carroll announced his decision on Friday, going with Geno Smith rather than Drew Lock.

The official word came after the Seahawks lost 27-26 to the Dallas Cowboys on Friday in Arlington, Texas, in their preseason finale.

However, the choice appeared to have been made in advance, as Smith received the starter’s treatment in the contest. He played only the first offensive series, leading the Seahawks to a field goal while completing half of his six passes for 43 yards.

Carroll noted that Lock saw his chances of winning the starting role diminish when he missed part of the preseason after testing positive for COVID-19.

“He’s going to start the opener, and he’s earned it, he’s won the job,” Carroll said of Smith. “With the timeframes, it got messed up for us for Drew, he just ran out of time in making his bid for it. And so yeah, I’m cool about that, so I just want to let you know, so everybody knows, so you don’t have to ask me about it anymore.

Lock completed 13 of 24 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown on Friday but was intercepted three times.

“Drew’s going to keep on battling because he can play, and he’s got all kinds of stuff in him, and I want him to be ready at a moment’s call,” Carroll said. “And he’s going to keep growing and pushing and developing as a fantastic player and I have no problem playing with him, too.

“So, we’re fortunate to have two guys who can go, and when he comes off the bench, if he gets his chance he’ll be ready to go and try to light it up.”

Smith said, “I’m thankful for the opportunity and grateful, but I have a lot of work ahead of me. That was my mindset from the start is getting ready to go out there and win games.”

Lock said, “As a competitor, you’re always disappointed and I was disappointed. You want to be out there, you want to play with those guys. … It’s my job to have (Smith’s) back and be the best teammate I can be.”

Smith, 31, is entering his third season with the Seahawks after four years with the New York Jets and one year apiece with the New York Giants and the Los Angeles Chargers. He posted a 1-2 record as a starter last year, putting his career record at 13-21 in starts.

In 45 NFL games overall, Smith has a 58.8 percent completion rate to go with 6,917 passing yards, 34 touchdowns with 37 interceptions.

Lock, 25, joined the Seahawks in the March deal that shipped quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos. He owns an 8-13 mark as an NFL starter to go with a 59.3 percent completion rate, 4,740 passing yards, 25 touchdowns and 20 interceptions in 24 games overall.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll in no rush to select starting QB

Geno Smith and Drew Lock are battling to become the Seattle Seahawks’ starting quarterback, and the competition could roll on for a while.

The team plans to use as much time as is needed to come up with the right decision, coach Pete Carroll said on Tuesday.

Carroll wouldn’t even commit to a starter for the Seahawks’ exhibition-season finale on Friday against the host Dallas Cowboys. He did confirm that Smith remains on top of the depth chart at the moment, but that’s due in part to Lock missing last week’s preseason game after testing positive for COVID-19.

“I’m wide open for whatever happens,” Carroll said. “Geno has been the guy in the lead position the whole time and protected that thought throughout. He’s done a really nice job, he’s been very consistent. So we’ll just see what happens. And there’s two more weeks of practice too after this. I had a set thought on what we would do with the timeline, but that got disrupted (with Lock testing positive for COVID), so we’re going to use all the time we need.”

The Seahawks have a day longer than most teams to prepare for the regular season as they open on the first Monday of the campaign, Sept. 12, against the Denver Broncos and former Seattle QB Russell Wilson.

“I’m not closing the book on anybody competing for their spots,” Carroll said. “We have two enormous weeks coming up. The finish of this one, next week is a huge week for us, then we come back with another full week, and an extra day. So we’ve got a lot of time here to work it out on my schedule.

“Maybe you’re not feeling that schedule, but on my schedule, I’m OK.”

Smith, 31, is entering his third season in Seattle after four years with the New York Jets and single seasons with the New York Giants and the Los Angeles Chargers. He went 1-2 as a starter last year, leaving his career record at 13-21 in starts.

In 45 NFL games overall, Smith has completed 58.8 percent of his passes for 6,917 yards and 34 touchdowns with 37 interceptions.

Lock, 25, arrived in the March trade that sent Wilson to Denver. He is 8-13 as an NFL starter with a 59.3 percent completion rate, 4,740 passing yards, 25 touchdowns and 20 interceptions in 24 games overall.

“I could go ahead and just call it, but I want to let the guys battle and let them show where they are and let us get as much information as possible,” Carroll said. “Geno’s done a really good job of being in that position. His voice is solid. He’s on point all the time. He’s been very consistent with his work all of that, and Drew has been really sharp.

“I know it’s not supposed to be a good situation when you have two quarterbacks. It means you don’t have one, is the old saying. I don’t know that. We might have two ones. We’ll see what happens.”

Russell Wilson on future with Seahawks: ‘You never know’

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been the subject of multiple trade scenario discussions by media and fans this season. And even though no movement for the quarterback has manifested, the seven-time Pro Bowler isn’t exactly throwing cold water on the idea.

In a news conference held with the media this week via Zoom, Wilson said, “I think that you never know … I know for me personally, I hope it’s not my last game. But at the same time, I know it won’t be my last game in the NFL.

“So I’m just focused on the day and getting better today. And so that’s my focus. That’s my goal. I love this city, and I love this moment. I love these guys. And so we’ve got to make sure we get better today. That’s the only thing that matters.”

Wilson, 33, has two years remaining on a contract that will pay him an average of $35 million. A departure would require an outright release — unlikely with a $26 million dead cap hit in 2022 — or a trade, which would be most likely to occur prior to March 20, the fifth day of the new league year, when he is due a $5 million roster bonus.

If a trade is in the offing, that would leave Sunday’s game with the Detroit Lions as Wilson’s final home game as a Seahawk since he was drafted in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, a tenure of ten seasons.

Wilson has started nearly every game of that run, missing only three games earlier this season after he suffered a ruptured tendon and dislocation of his right middle finger in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams.

The one-time Super Bowl champion has had one of his worst statistical seasons of his career, throwing for 2,639 yards with 18 touchdowns on 64.9 percent passing. He did express that he feels his stated pursuit of more Super Bowl victories remains possible in Seattle.

“Obviously we can’t do it not being in the playoffs right now,” Wilson said. “But I think that most importantly is it takes a lot of effort, takes a lot of things. It takes a lot of pieces and I think that we have a good amount of those pieces. A lot of them.”
