Seahawks' Wilson wants voice heard on next OC

Russell Wilson said "it's vital, it's critical, super significant" that he's part of the process in Seattle's search for a new offensive coordinator.

The Seahawks signed WR John Ursua to a futures deal, according to the NFL's transaction wire. Ursua has not carved out a role in two seasons since the Seahawks drafted him in the seventh round. He caught one pass for 11 yards in three games as a rookie and spent this past season on the practice squad. A futures deal secures his rights for 2021.

An accomplishment that shouldn't be overlooked amid the disappointing end to the Seahawks' season: they didn't have anyone contract COVID-19. Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle: "The biggest takeaway from the season – and I know this isn't what maybe everybody would expect – but [it's] that we stayed healthy and kept our families healthy throughout the season." Carroll said he worries about players as they head home and no longer have the built-in safeguards that helped have helped protect them.

WR Phillip Dorsett remains in the Seahawks' plans for 2021. He signed a one-year, minimum-salary deal in March but didn't play due to a lingering foot injury that required surgery. "I talked to Phil yesterday," Pete Carroll said. "We're just like throwing this season out. It didn't work out for him and [let's] bring him back, let's start all over again with all the same high hopes. He's a really interesting player. He's got great speed, he's really bright, he's really talented. We love the kid."

Pete Carroll voluntarily said he'd like to re-sign free agent Benson Mayowa and that he's "counting on" Carlos Dunlap being back in 2021. "That's the main focus: make sure this pass rush comes back intact," he said. "We can grow from there." More opportunities for Alton Robinson and a healthy Darrell Taylor -- who spent his rookie year on NFI -- are part of that plan. The Seahawks led the NFL with 37 sacks over the final 10 weeks. They were seventh overall with 46 -- 18 more than last season.

Pete Carroll believes more running is a cure to the issues Russell Wilson and the Seahawks' offense had after their hot start to the season. The idea is to force defenses to drop a safety out of coverage and into the box, opening up more of the deep-throw opportunities they had early on. "It ain't going to be 50 runs a game," Carroll said. "We're not going to do that. I don't want to do that. I want to explode with the throwing game, but we need to dictate the way we're being played better."

The Seahawks signed 11 players to futures contracts: QB Danny Etling, QB Alex McGough, WR Penny Hart, WR Aaron Fuller, WR Cody Thompson, TE Tyler Mabry, OT Tommy Champion, C Brad Lundblade, DB Gavin Heslop, DB Jordan Miller, DT Cedrick Lattimore. All finished on Seattle's practice squad. Those disband once the season ends, thus those players are no longer under contract. A futures deal secures their rights for the next season. No word on WR John Ursua. He also finished on their practice squad.

K.J. Wright played another full season and excelled after moving to strong-side linebacker. But the longest-tenured Seahawk again faces an uncertain future with his contract up. "That's up to Pete and John," he said. "They know how much I mean to this team. They know I'm a baller, they know I'm a great teammate, a great leader and it would be a great investment -- in my opinion -- if they invest in K.J. and bring him back into the building." Wright, 31, said he'd play wherever the Seahawks want.

Shaquill Griffin said he nearly broke down in tears Saturday night while reminiscing about the three seasons he and twin brother Shaquem have spent together with the Seahawks. "Who ever would have thought?" he said. "It's a story of a lifetime and it's still being written." But Shaquill (unrestricted) and Shaquem (restricted) are about to be free agents. "They know I want to be here," Shaquill said, "so at this point I'm just praying on it, hoping for the best, hopefully everything works out."

As much of an impact as Carlos Dunlap made on the Seahawks' defense -- five sacks, 14 QB hits in nine games -- the structure of his re-worked contract suggests his future in Seattle isn't set in stone. He has one year left at a cap charge above $14M, including a $3M roster bonus due in March. "It was very clear what I was coming here to do and what my timespan would be," he said, "so now it's a conversation and I'm open and welcoming ... it. You guys already know how grateful I am to be here."
