Tuesday morning links and notes: Trade deadline today

It’s NFL Trade Deadline day, a day when there is often a lot more talk than action.

But, as Pete Carroll said yesterday, you never know. So we’ll stay glued to the phone and the computer here and keep you posted if anything happens by the 1 p.m. Seattle time deadline.

As I write this, I’m not seeing or hearing anything specific to Seattle from credible/multiple outlets/sources. But again, we’ll keep you posted as it goes.

Now for a few links. …

— Here’s my story wrapping up what was said on the trade/Marshawn Lynch front by Pete Carroll on Monday.

— The Seahawks also have extended invites to the two teams impacted by Friday’s tragedy at Marysville-Pilchuck High to practice at their facility.

— Here’s Hugh Millen’s analysis of the win over Carolina.

— NFL.com has this roundup of the latest trade rumors.

— FootballOutsiders rated Russell Wilson’s game this week the 24th best among QBs, writing: “Inside the red zone, Wilson went 2-of-6 for 9 yards with no first downs and one interception.”

— Wilson and the Seahawks will be featured on a regional cover of Sports Illustrated this week.

Doug Baldwin was on the Barbershop last night. Good stuff. Listen here.

— NFLFilms will debut a documentary tonight about the Seattle-based Costatcos Brothers.

— Some notes on the Raiders from ESPN.

— Some interesting perspectives here in grades on the Panthers’ performances against the Seahawks.

— This is an ESPN Insider piece. But if you subscribe, some interesting numbers on Wilson this season with and without Percy Harvin. What stands out most is how much more success he has had running without Harvin on the field, rushing 13 times for 106 yards with Harvin on the field and 31 times for 256 yards without him on the field. One thought on that — when Harvin was still here, he was obviously the focus of a big percentage of plays when he was on the field. So that right there would decreases the number of opportunities Wilson would have even had to run. While it became known later that Harvin was pulling himself off the field at times, it also was no secret that Harvin tended not to play as much on running plays as blocking is not his strength and also not something Seattle wanted him doing much of to decrease the number of hits he’d take. So inevitably zone read plays and all of that were run much more often when Harvin was not on the field.
