Source: Seahawks good to go with Carroll in '22

Pete Carroll's job security as Seahawks coach was not discussed during an end-of-season meeting with owner Jody Allen and general manager John Schneider last week, a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner was named a second-team AP All-Pro for 2021. He's Seattle's only All-Pro selection this year. Wagner, who had been a first-team All-Pro in each of the previous five seasons, was leading the NFL in tackles with a franchise-record 170 over the first 16 weeks until he hurt his knee. That caused him to miss all but one snap of the last two games. He received seven votes. LB Jordyn Brooks (1), FS Quandre Diggs (3), P Michael Dickson (5) and ST Nick Bellore (1) also got votes.

DT Al Woods took a COVID opt-out last year and, in Pete Carroll's view, played his best football this season at age 34. The pending free agent called his season "awesome" and added: "Everything just was clicking. I felt good. I still feel good. I just had a conversation with [GM John Schneider] and them 15 minutes ago and they asked me what I wanted to do and I told them I want to come back, so we're going to see how that works." Woods said he's "good" after missing the season finale with COVID.

In order to avoid another poor start in 2022, D.J. Reed said Seahawks defenders need to "take control" in games -- "doing extra inside the defensive schemes" in terms of communicating and "changing plans" when needed. He said that as well as playing more man vs. soft zone were reasons they played better later in the year. Reed said he "definitely" wants to re-sign with Seattle. He'll test free agency and won't necessarily pick the highest bidder, weighing things like scheme and the organization.

After 29 touchdowns and no missed games over his first three seasons, DK Metcalf is in line for a huge extension. "It's gonna get done, in my opinion. I'm just gonna let the chips fall where they may and let God and the Seahawks and my agent take care of the rest. I know everything is going to work out just fine." Metcalf said Monday he would soon talk to Pete Carroll about possible surgery for the foot injury that bothered him most of the year. Carroll later said he was looking to have surgery.

Duane Brown assessed his 14th NFL season as "OK," saying he had some "rough patches" and wasn't always his healthiest. But he liked how he finished strong and said he's feeling "healthy enough" at 36 to continue playing, ideally in Seattle. "When I signed my extension, I said I wanted to retire here." Brown said he isn't opposed to a one-year deal, knowing that's what suitors may prefer at his age. He was 26th among OTs in ESPN's Pass Block Win Rate (89.2%) after ranking second (94%) last year.

Rashaad Penny sealed the Seahawks' win with a 62-yard TD run and finished with 190 rushing yards to set a new career-high for the third time in five weeks. "It feels great. I feel like my journey is really just beginning ... I'm blessed, I'm healthy and I'm going into an offseason where I'm going to have time to not rehab as much ... That's probably the most exciting thing for me." Penny is set to become a free agent. "I would love to be back home. This is home to me. I would love to be back."

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Rashaad Penny set another career-high with 190 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries Sunday, putting an exclamation point on his recent surge. That gave him an NFL-high 671 rushing yards over the last five games, 208 more than anyone else. Per ESPN Stats & Info, he joined Shaun Alexander as the only players in team history with 130 rushing yards in three straight games. Penny topped that mark in four of the last five. He scored six rushing TDs in that span after only five in his first 32 games.

Jordyn Brooks recorded 20 tackles to finish the season with 183, breaking the Seahawks record that Bobby Wagner set last month when he topped his old record from 2016. Wagner (knee) missed Sunday's game. "It's a little bittersweet," Brooks said. "I know if Bobby was still playing he would still hold it, so I feel like it wasn't a fair shot. But I thank God anyways ... Credit goes to the D-line and all the guys around me." Brooks' 20 tackles tied Wagner's single-game club record from September.

The Seahawks' win Sunday was No. 113 of Russell Wilson's career, including playoffs. That broke a tie with Peyton Manning for the most in a QB's first 10 seasons. He also joined Manning as the only players in NFL history to post at least 3,000 passing yards and 20 touchdowns in each of their first 10 seasons. Wilson (15-26, 238 yards) threw for three TDs and rushed for another. Gerald Everett dropped what would've been a fourth TD. He was intercepted and lost a fumble that was returned for a TD.
