As Seahawks purge roster, they purge their identity, too

What happened to the Seahawks we used to know Every day this offseason, it seems, they’ve done something to make them look like every other NFL team. They never used to look like every other team.

Now, you’ll know them not because of Beast Mode, the Legion of Boom or the woke locker room, but by their neon uniforms.

As for the aforementioned violence against women… that’s how the NFL does business, too.

Trevone Boykin was accused of viciously beating his girlfriend last Tuesday. It wasn’t until this Tuesday — a day after the victim went on Dallas’s WFAA-TV to tell her story — that the Seahawks released him, although they reportedly knew of the investigation into the incident soon after it happened.

Tate is entering the final year of a five-year, $31 million deal he signed in 2014. He’s proved to be a bargain at that cost, catching at least 90 passes each of the past four years and regularly finishing among the league leaders in yards after the catch.

In the two years under Quinn’s stewardship, the Lions have signed quarterback Matthew Stafford, cornerback Darius Slay, safety Glover Quin, running back Theo Riddick and punter Sam Martin to extensions in the month before the start of the regular season.

There’s no certainty whether Tate will join that club. He’s primed for a big raise, with guys like Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins pulling down deals averaging $16 million and $14 million, respectively, this offseason.patriots_107-223x223
