A spokesperson with the United States District Court's Eastern District of Pennsylvania confirms that Mychal Kendricks' sentencing date for his insider trading case has been moved from Jan. 25 to April 4, as Field Gulls reported. Kendricks played in four games with the Seahawks in 2018 before suffering a season-ending leg injury in his first game back from an eight-game NFL suspension. He's scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent and Pete Carroll has said the Seahawks want Kendricks back in 2019.

The Seahawks have signed defensive tackle Jamie Meder to a futures deal, which secures his rights for the 2019 season. Meder (6-2, 308) is 27 years old and started 17 games over the past two seasons with the Browns. According to the NFL's transaction report, quarterback Alex McGough's contract has expired. That means the 2018 seventh-round pick is a free agent. He spent his rookie season on Seattle's practice squad.

The Seahawks have signed kicker Sam Ficken to a futures deal, a source tells ESPN's Field Yates. The 26-year-old Ficken has appeared in a combined five regular-season and postseason games with the Rams over the last two years and went 5 of 8 on field goals. Ficken was waived in October and remained unsigned, making him eligible to sign with Seattle before the start of free agency in March. Sebastian Janikowksi, Seattle's kicker in 2018, is 40 years old and is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent.

In addition to firing head strength and conditioning coach Chris Carlisle, the Seahawks have fired assistant strength and conditioning coaches Mondray Gee and Jamie Yanchar, sources tell ESPN. Sports Radio KJR was the first to report the firings of Gee and Yanchar and also reports that head athletic trainer Donald Rich is out as well.

Russell Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, told MLB Network that Wilson will attend Yankees spring training again this year. Wilson spent a few days with the Yankees in Tampa last year after his rights were acquired from the Rangers in a trade.

Pete Carroll called it "a heroic season" for Doug Baldwin, who battled injuries to both knees, his elbow, groin, hip and shoulder dating back to training camp. Asked if he has any idea what Baldwin's future is in Seattle, Carroll said: "Yeah, planning on being right with us." Baldwin is signed through 2020.

Pete Carroll said Monday he hasn't spoken recently with injured safety Earl Thomas and had this tepid response when asked if he'd like Thomas back in Seattle: "Uh, we'll see what happens. I don't know what -- yeah, I'd love it. Earl's a great player. I don't know what that means for a contact and all that stuff, but it's one of the issues. We've got a bunch of them." Thomas is one of 14 Seahawks scheduled to be unrestricted free agents. The others are: DE Frank Clark, DE Dion Jordan, LB K.J. Wright, LB Mychal Kendricks, DT Shamar Stephen, CB Justin Coleman, CB Neiko Thorpe, S Maurice Alexander, RG D.J. Fluker, LG J.R. Sweezy, RB Mike Davis, QB Brett Hundley, K Sebastian Janikowski.

Carroll: Blame me, not OC, for WC run struggles

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll doesn't fault offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer for sticking with the run game even though Seattle couldn't run the ball in its 24-22 wild-card loss to the Cowboys on Saturday.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks on Monday signed nine players to futures contracts: cornerbacks Simeon Thomas and Jeremy Boykins, receivers Caleb Scott and Keenan Reynolds, safety Marwin Evans, tight end Tyrone Swoopes, linebacker Justin Currie, center Marcus Henry and guard Jordan Roos. Those are all the players who finished the season on Seattle's practice squad except for quarterback Alex McGough, a seventh-round pick in 2018.
