— First, today is the day Seattle QB Russell Wilson will spend with the Texas Rangers.
— NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) March 3, 2014
Expect plenty of coverage of this throughout the day.
— Next, today is the deadline for teams to put franchise tags on players. The Seahawks have already said they don’t plan to use the tag, typifying a season in which few teams have:
