Seattle Seahawks acquire defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson from the Jets

The Seattle Seahawks made headlines this weekend by acquiring standout defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson in a trade with the New York Jets.

Richardson comes to the Hawks on an $8 million per season deal which Seattle can easily afford.

Sheldon Richardson played 15 games with the Jets last season recording 38 tackles, 24 assists, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

The move improves Seattle’s already solid defensive line which includes Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Frank Clark.

Richardson has looked like a beast so far this preseason so Seattle fans should be thrilled by the trade.

“Best Mode” is back!

Marshawn Lynch has agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders.

NFL Network’s Michael Silver was first to report the news.

Financial details on Lynch’s deal with the Raiders have yet to be revealed.

Before joining Oakland, a trade from Seattle still has to be completed.

With that said, the trade between the Seahawks and the Raiders is basically a formality at this stage.

The 30 year-old running back will be joining an impressive up and coming squad in Oakland.

The Raiders will eventually be moving to Las Vegas, but “Beast Mode” will be showcasing his talents in California next season.

“Beast Mode” retired from football following the Seahawks heartbreaking last second loss at Super Bowl 50.

How do you think Lynch will perform in the “Black Hole” in Oakland?

NFL Wild Card Weekend Preview: Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks

NFL Wild Card Weekend Preview: Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

Despite losing to the Green Bay Packers in the final game of the NFL’s regular season, the Detroit Lions (9-7) were able to secure the NFC’s final playoff spot due to a Washington Redskins loss.

Detroit will now travel to Seattle where they will do battle with both the Seahawks and their rowdy fans on Saturday night.

After putting together an impressive five game win streak to bring their overall record to 9-4, the Lions have now lost three straight games heading in to Wild Card Weekend.

The Lions suffered losses to fellow NFC playoff teams the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys and aforementioned Green Bay Packers during that stretch.

Scoring will not come easy in Seattle as the Seahawks defense seems to thrive in front of their home crowd.

Detroit will need their quarterback Matt Stafford to have a great game with no turnovers if they hope to pull out the upset in Seattle.

Stafford had a solid year for the Lions this season throwing for 4,327 yards and 24 touchdowns against just 10 interceptions.

The Lions will need big plays from their receivers, including Golden Tate who will return to Seattle and face off with his former teammates.

Running the ball will not be easy for Detroit, but they will need to figure out a way so that Stafford gets some time to throw in the pocket.

Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks (10-5-1) clinched the NFC West title once again this year but it was not easy.

Seattle has had their fans on a rollercoaster ride for most of the season and will now look to find some balance in their play in this year’s NFL playoffs.

Seattle has alternated between wins and losses over the last seven weeks.

In week 17, the final week of the regular season, they picked up a 25-23 road victory over the 49ers.

The Seahawks will need their franchise quarterback Russell Wilson to play at his very best on Saturday night and it would go a long way in helping if the team could solidify a run game against a tough Lions defense.

On the opposite side of the football Seattle is dealing with some injuries, however at home it is hard to bet against the Seahawks defense.

With that said, I predict the Seattle Seahawks will defeat the Detroit Lions by a final score of 28-17 this weekend.

While everyone was expecting Peyton Manning to make retirement headlines following his victory at Super Bowl 50, it was Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch who stole the headlines.

“Beast Mode” took to twitter Sunday night where he simply tweeted a peace emoji and a picture of his cleats suspended from a telephone wire.

Although Lynch made no official statement on the matter, his agent and Seahawks owner Paul Allen acknowledged his departure from the game on Monday.

Lynch won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks 3 years ago when the squad demolished this year’s Super Bowl champion the Denver Broncos.

Lynch will go down in history as one of the toughest and most durable backs in NFL history.

During his nine-year NFL career, Lynch accumulated 9,112 yards rushing to go along with 74 touchdown scores.
