Seahawks free agency tracker

As the first day of free agency winds down, here’s an update on the status of the 13 Seahawks who officially became unrestricted free agents today:

— CB Brandon Browner:  No rumors of Browner landing anywhere yet. He almost certainly won’t return to Seattle.

— TE Kellen Davis: Pretty much ditto the situation with Browner.

— OT Breno Giacomini: The Seahawks are th0ught to want Giacomini back, but at the right price. As the Seahawks appear to be doing with a few other free agents, it looks like they are letting Giacomini test the market and see what’s out there, and if it gets to a point where they don’t want to match, then let him walk. No specific rumors on Giacomini so far.

— PK Steven Hauschka: There seems little question that Seattle wants Hauschka back. But again, they also appear to have a pretty set number for what they want to pay. The kicker market closed quite a bit Tuesday with guys like Phil Dawson (49ers), Adam Vinatieri (Colts) and Dan Carpenter (Bills) re-signing with their current teams. We’ll see if that changes the dynamic a bit with Hauschka and the Seahawks.

— QB Tarvaris Jackson: No movement yet, but still thought likely he will be back.

— S Chris Maragos: Rumored visiting the Washington Redskins as it appears pretty certain he won’t be back with the Seahawks.

— DT Tony McDaniel: Rumored and confirmed that the Seahawks are attempting to bring him back, something that could happen quickly. Seahawks are thought to view McDaniel as being able to also play some of the five-technique defensive end spot where Red Bryant played last season, combining with Michael Bennett to play that spot.

DT Clinton McDonald: McDonald was officially the first player the Seahawks lost, signing a four-year deal worth $12 million with Tampa Bay. Seattle now known  to be pursuing Jason Hatcher, who would help fill the void there.

— OL Paul McQuistan: No real rumors yet on McQuistan. Unclear if he’s a big priority for the Seahawks.

— FB Michael Robinson: No real rumors yet, and there is an increasing thought that it’s more likely he will not be back in 2014 with the Seahawks with the emergence of Derrick Coleman and Spencer Ware at the fullback spot.

— LB O’Brien Schofield: Officially the second player the Seahawks lost, signing a two-year, $8 million deal with the Giants.

— WR Golden Tate: Reported to be taking a visit to Detroit, with some thought that the Lions may not let him leave. Theory seems to be that the Seahawks will  be happy to pay him $4.5-5 million or so but may not want to go much higher. And worth keeping in mind that Sidney Rice remains unsigned. It’s not out of the question he returns to Seattle, especially if Tate is lost.

— CB Walter Thurmond: Confirmed via his own Twitter account he is visiting Jacksonville. Also seems like a good shot the Jags may not let him leave without a deal.
