This offseason, Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham and RB Thomas Rawls are healthy and HC Pete Carroll seemed like he could hardly contain his excitement at that thought. As he also could have noted but didn’t, it’s also the first full offseason for each healthy and as a Seahawk. Two years ago, Rawls didn’t join the team until signing as an undrafted free agent following the draft while Graham was traded to the Seahawks in March.
But this year, each headed into the offseason with a clear understanding of what the team expects and a full off-season to try to get that done.
As Carroll noted, this time a year ago, Graham and Rawls were each limited in their offseason work, resigned to rehabbing from significant injuries that had knocked them out the year before. Rawls' fantasy value likely loses some luster with the signing of Eddie Lacy and the return of injured C.J. Prosise. It's the final year of deals for both Graham and Rawls.
