Update: ESPN is reporting that the players will reportedly receive 48 percent of "all revenue" under the framework of the labor deal currently being discussed. NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith insists the players only saw 53 percent of the revenues under the previous agreement, though 60 percent is the number most commonly cited.
Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports on Twitter that all players with at least four years of service time will be unrestricted free agents under the labor agreement currently being discussed. This would impact in excess of 500 current players and would potentially lead to a free agent frenzy once a deal is reached.
Update: Free agent quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is reportedly hopeful that he will be back in Seattle for the 2011 season. "I'm definitely hopeful that I’ll be able to stay in Seattle, but at the same time I understand the first thing’s got to happen first and that’s definitely reaching some kind of labor agreement," he said. The NFL draft should shed some light on the quarterback situation in Seattle. Stay tuned for more as there will clearly be some suitors for the veteran QB should Seattle look to move in a different direction.
Update: Washington QB Jake Locker shot down speculation on Tuesday's ProFootballTalk Live that he would turn to baseball's Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the event of a lockout. Locker had a nice combine, and certainly doesn't want to do anything to mess up the hype that now surrounds him.
Update: ESPN's John Clayton reported on 710 ESPN Seattle that free agent Matt Hasselbeck and the Seahawks are "miles apart" on a new contract. There won't an agreement by Thursday's CBA deadline. Hasselbeck won't get near the $6 million he got last year, but he should find teams interested in his services.
Update: The Seattle Seahawks have hired Darrell Bevell as offensive coordinator.
Fantasy Impact: Bevell takes over for the recently fired Jeremy Bates. This was an interesting hire given the Vikings offense has been extremely inconsistent.
Update: ESPN's Chris Mortensen confirms that Josh McDaniels is a candidate to replace Jeremy Bates as Seattle's offensive coordinator.
Fantasy Impact: Talks with the Rams apparently have hit a road block, many believe due to money, but McDaniels has no lack of suitors for his services. Expect him to land someplace this week.
Update: According to Brian McIntyre, Seahwaks linebacker Lofa Tatupu is expected to play against the Bears on Sunday after passing his concussion test.
Fantasy Impact: Inactives will come out about 90 minutes before gametime, but all signs point to him playing.
Update: Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that the Seahawks will kick to Bears special teamer Devin Hester in Sunday's Divisional Round game. "We've got to kick the ball to him," Carroll said. "There's nothing we can do about it. We'd like to not [punt], though. That would help."
Fantasy Impact: Hester is one of the most dangerous return men in the NFL. He had three punt returns for TD's this season and is a threat every time he has the ball in his hands.
Update: CBSsports.com is reporting that Seattle Seahawks WR Mike Williams returned to practice Wednesday after missing week 14 with a sprained ankle. He said he is excited about next week's game.
Fantasy Impact: Williams is a hit or miss player, meaning he's either going to put up big numbers or none at all. Considering he's coming off an ankle injury, it's safe to keep him on the bench this week even if he does play.
