The number of 1pm ET (or earlier) games for west coast teams is a frequently a concern. This season, the Rams have 2, 49ers and Seahawks have 3, the Chargers have 4, and the Raiders have 5. As for Mountain time zone teams, the Cardinals and Broncos each have 4.

Travel distances can have a slight effect on team fortunes. This season, Oakland, Seattle, and the Chargers each travel about 30,000 round trip miles. At the other end of the spectrum are Carolina, Atlanta, Cincinnati, and the Jets who each travel fewer than 10,000 miles.

An interesting travel nugget from ESPN Stats & Information: The closest NFL city to Seattle is Oakland, which is 801 miles away (San Francisco is listed at 807 miles). The Seahawks play the Raiders on the road in 2018, but it's in London -- 4,789 miles from Seattle. So the shortest possible trip for the Seahawks is instead the longest by far.

From ESPN Stats & Information: Since 2012, Russell Wilson's rookie season, the Seahawks' home winning percentage of .792 is second in the NFL only to New England's .833. The Seahawks play four of their final five games at CenturyLink Field in 2018.

Why was Seahawks general manager John Schneider scouting top quarterback prospects when he already has Russell Wilson? He explained a few of the reasons Thursday. Schneider mentioned how the Packers, his old team, would routinely add QBs even when Brett Favre was in his prime. He also revisited Aaron Rodgers' draft-day story as a lesson in due diligence. "I was in Green Bay when Aaron Rodgers fell, right?" Schneider said. "Aaron Rodgers was supposed to be the first pick in the draft, and we weren't necessarily as prepared as we should have been for him to fall. When you get to draft day, you want to just make decisions [quickly], like you're totally prepared. Quite frankly, when we acquired Aaron that day, we had to make some more calls during the draft, which you never really want to do. Like, 'Why is he falling?' That sort of thing. So you never know what's going to happen."

While Seahawks general manager John Schneider said he's been told by Earl Thomas' representatives that Thomas won't hold out, Schneider was noncommittal about the All-Pro free safety's future in Seattle. Asked if Thomas will be on the team, Schneider said: "He is right now. I mean, he's on our roster." Will he be there come September? "I hope so," Schneider said. "Yeah, I hope he is. He's under contract."

Seahawks general manager John Schneider wouldn't say if the team asked Colin Kaepernick whether or not he'd kneel for the national anthem next season. ESPN reported last week that the Seahawks postponed a workout with Kaepernick after he declined to say he would stop kneeling. "That's what I can't get into," Schneider said. "That's stuff that, not just Colin, anybody we're bringing in. This is a free-agent workout that we're talking about. Obviously it's pretty controversial. I understand that. But anybody that we bring in, there's a number of different things we go through, tons of different categories in the background before we bring guys in."

Seahawks general manager John Schneider was asked about the NFL Network's report that the team plans to waive defensive lineman Malik McDowell. He didn't confirm that plan, saying things are "ongoing." McDowell, last year's top pick, didn't play as a rookie after injuring his head in a summer ATV accident. "That's ongoing," Schneider said. "We're still waiting on some guidance on that, but Malik was involved in a terrible accident and it's an unfortunate thing." Schneider had no new information on strong safety Kam Chancellor or defensive end Cliff Avril, who suffered career-threatening neck injuries last season.

A significant note regarding the Earl Thomas situation: Seahawks general manager John Schneider said he was told by Thomas' representatives that Thomas won't hold out if he doesn't get a new deal. Schneider said he last spoke with Thomas' people at the scouting combine.

Seahawks left tackle Duane Brown, who's entering the last year of his contract, was asked where things stand as far as a possible extension. "Haven't gotten into that," he said. "I'm not focused on that right now. I'm just trying to continue to work with the guys, continue to make myself as big and fast and strong as possible heading into training camp, and I think everything will take care of itself." Brown spoke before an event for GM John Schneider's charity, Ben's Fund.

Seahawks' Thomas absent from workouts

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is absent from the start of the team's voluntary workouts, according to Brock Huard of ESPN and 710 ESPN Seattle.

The Seahawks announced they've re-signed quarterback Austin Davis, last year's backup. He joins Stephen Morris, who was signed Friday, as the two quarterbacks on their roster behind Russell Wilson. The NFL Network reported that Davis' deal is for the veteran minimum salary. Seattle also brought back linebacker Paul Dawson, who spend some time with the team last season.

Today marks the start of the Seahawks' voluntary offseason workout program. The first phase, which lasts two weeks, is limited to strength and conditioning activities. The top storyline is whether or not All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas will show up with his future in Seattle in some question. He's mentioned holding out if he doesn't get a new deal and the team has acknowledged that it's open to trading him. Players aren't required to attend until minicamp in mid-June.

Cornerback Dontae Johnson's deal with the Seahawks is for one year and $1.3 million, according to a source. The breakdown: $900,000 base salary, $350,000 signing bonus and a total of $50,000 in per-game active roster bonuses.
