With Chancellor's future remaining cloudy due to a neck/nerve injury, re-signing McDougald was viewed as a priority for the Seahawks and he becomes the first of the 16 players on the team who could become unrestricted free agents this week to re-sign. He spent six seasons in Seattle, starting 15 regular-season games in 2016.

Shead's agent, Cameron Foster, told ESPN that the National Football League recently informed the Seahawks that Shead's contract was going to toll.

The Seahawks have agreed to terms with safety Bradley McDougald on a three-year, $13.95 million deal, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Players such as McDougald whose contracts ran out in 2017 are officially free to sign with other teams on Wednesday at 1 p.m. Seattle time but can re-sign with their current team at any time.

Curtis Crabtree of KJR and PFT reports that cornerback Deshawn Shead will be released on Monday.

"They called me and they said, 'Just giving you a heads up that we're going to release DeShawn on Monday, but that doesn't mean we don't want him, '" Foster told ESPN's Brady Henderson. "It's them living up to their word, letting DeShawn test the free-agent world, but they have said they'd like to have him come back". He has experience at all five positions in Seattle's secondary since the team signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012.

The Seahawks have renewed their Kam Chancellor insurance package. Seattle also has second-year players Denalo Hill and Tedric Thompson as backups at both safety spots. We know he can play corner, and we like the way he plays at corner, but everything is open.
