The quietest day of free agency so far for the Seahawks as there were no players signed, or signed away.
There was the Zach Miller news, though recall he was not a free agent. Instead, that was a restructuring to try to make things easier for the Seahawks the next few years.
And there were a few rumors, including this tonight from NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport about free agent defensive tackle Henry Melton:
Meanwhile, #Seahawks and DT Henry Melton are deep in negotiations tonight, per source. We’ll see if he makes it to Dallas for his visit

Melton, meanwhile, Tweeted this:
Have fully enjoyed this experience so far
— Henry Melton (@HenMel) March 16, 2014
So yes, sounds like he’s liking being courted.
Walter Thurmond, meanwhile, Tweeted this, causing some to wonder if he’s made a decision:
Dun dun dunnnnnnnnn!!!!

Nothing, though, became official about either.
Also nothing new on Jermichael Finley, who visited Seattle earlier this week, but Tweeted today that he doesn’t have a job yet:
