Seahawks sign WR Brandon Marshall

According to a post on his Instagram account, wide receiver Brandon Marshall will be signing with the Seattle Seahawks. Adam Schefter reports it's a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact: 

After losing WR Paul Richardson to Washington and TE Jimmy Graham to Green Bay, the Seahawks were in the market for pass-catching help. It seems they settled on Brandon Marshall to bring reinforcements. Marshall signed as a free agent with the New York Giants last offseason, but his season was cut short after only five games—in which he caught 18-of-33 targets for 154 yards and zero touchdowns.

Richardson and Graham accounted for a combined 175 targets last season, meaning there may be an opportunity for Marshall to be involved in the Seahawks' passing game. With Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett still around, it's likely Marshall will be the third-best option in the passing game, if he's fully healthy.
