Geno Smith's one-year deal with the Seahawks is worth $895,000 with $25,000 guaranteed, according to a source. The breakdown: $25,000 signing bonus; $805,000 base salary; $65,000 bonus for being on the 53-man roster in Week 1. With the minimum-salary benefit, Smith's cap number is $735,000.

Al Woods' one-year contract with the Seahawks is worth $2.25 million with $400,000 guaranteed. The breakdown: $400,000 signing bonus; $1.25 million base salary; $300,000 bonus for being on the 53-man roster at any point during the regular season; $300,000 in per-game bonuses ($18,750 for each game on the 46-man active roster). Woods' cap number is $2.2125 million.

The Seahawks have signed two more of their draft picks over the last two days: L.J. Collier (first) and DK Metcalf (second). Of their 11 picks, only Cody Barton (third) remains unsigned. Collier's four-year rookie deal is worth $10.836 million overall, including $9.85 million guaranteed and a team option for Year 5. Third-round picks can take longer to sign because there's more room for negotiating in those deals compared to those of picks from other rounds. That may be a reason why Barton and several other third-rounders are still unsigned.

Asked what he'll remember most years from now about his time with his long-time No. receiver Doug Baldwin, Russell Wilson mentioned the 2015 season when those two connected for 14 touchdowns, 12 of which came over the final eight games. "We got really hot," Wilson said. "That was pretty cool." Wilson added: "He has this fire that you didn't see in anybody else."

In addition to Ziggy Ansah, the Seahawks don't expect to see defensive tackle Jarran Reed (sports hernia) or safety Bradley McDougald (knee) practice until training camp as they recover from recent surgeries. Pete Carroll said of Reed: "He's moving well and he should be fine, but we just can't rush that. We've got to take our time with that." Running back Chris Carson "had some work done" on his knee but will only be out a couple more weeks, Carroll said. Other Seahawks not practicing Tuesday included: safety Delano Hill (hip), defensive end Naz Jones (knee), receiver Gary Jennings (hamstring) and tight end Will Dissly (knee). Quarterback Geno Smith and cornerback Tre Flowers were both absent while attending to family matters, per Carroll.

Pete Carroll called Ziggy Ansah "a huge get" for the Seahawks and said he was as effective as any pass-rusher in the NFL last season before he went down with a shoulder injury that required surgery. Carroll said Ansah has "a long process to get back" and that the team will know more about his timetable by training camp when they can reevaluate his progress. He didn't rule out Ansah being ready for Week 1, saying: "He's got a chance to be. That's what we're shouting for."

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner said he feels it's important for him to be present for offseason work as "the quarterback of the defense," but he's not practicing while he awaits a new contract. Pete Carroll said he's fine with that approach. Wagner, who's entering the final year of his deal and is representing himself, declined to specify where negotiations stand, only saying he's been in communication with the team. He said "the plan" is to top the market-setting deal C.J. Mosley got from the Jets.

Ziggy Ansah's one-year deal with the Seahawks has a base value of $9 million and $6 million guaranteed. The breakdown: $3.5 million signing bonus; $2.5 million base salary (fully guaranteed); $3 million in per-game roster bonuses ($93,750 for every game he's on the 53-man roster and $93,750 for every game he's on the 46-man active roster). Tying some of Ansah's potential compensation to per-game bonuses is a team-friendly safeguard against his injured shoulder (or any other potential injuries). His cap number is $7.875 million for now; it would adjust in real time depending on how many of his per-game bonuses Ansah earns. According to Joel Corry, Ansah can earn up to $13.25 million in all with incentives tied to sacks and playing time.

Ziggy Ansah told 710 ESPN Seattle Wednesday that he's made "great progress" with his surgically-repaired shoulder, but he stopped well short of putting any timetable on his return to the field. The Seahawks believe there's a good chance Ansah, whom they signed last week, will be ready by Week 1. "I'm just going to take it a day at a time," Ansah said. "I don't have no timeline as of right now. I'm just waiting to see what the doctor is going to say, but until then, I'm putting in the work every day to get the body right."

The Seahawks have signed quarterback Geno Smith, the team announced. He'll join Paxton Lynch in the competition to back up Russell Wilson. They're the three quarterbacks on Seattle's roster after the team waived UDFA Taryn Christion. ESPN's Jordan Raanan reported earlier in the week that the Seahawks were expected to sign Smith.

The Seahawks signed four more draft picks: receivers Gary Jennings (fourth) and John Ursua (seventh), running back Travis Homer (sixth) and defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas (sixth). Three of their 11 picks are unsigned: defensive end L.J. Collier (first), receiver DK Metcalf (second) and linebacker Cody Barton (third).

Cornerback Jamar Taylor and guard Marcus Martin each got one-year, minimum-salary-benefit deals from the Seahawks, a source tells ESPN.com. Taylor's is for $895,000 with a $25,000 signing bonus and a $65,000 roster bonus if he's on the 53-man roster in Week 1. His cap number is $735,000. Martin's is for $805,000 with no guarantees. His cap number is $645,000.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Fullback Nick Bellore's deal with the Seahawks is for two years and $2.23 million with $600,000 guaranteed, a source tells ESPN.com. He got a $300,000 signing bonus and $300,000 of his $930,000 2019 base salary fully guaranteed. His $1 million 2020 base salary is non-guaranteed. The Seahawks are among the NFL teams that still use a fullback and they're paying a decent amount of money to Bellore, which indicates he's a good bet to make the team. A converted linebacker, Bellore also figures to factor heavily on special teams.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

The Seahawks have made their signing of defensive tackle Al Woods official. They announced that move and waived two undrafted free agents, quarterback Taryn Christion and tight end Mik'Quan Deane. That leaves an open spot on their 90-man roster.

Woodson: Seahawks don't have Baldwin's replacement yet (1:40)

This Just In  

Former Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin posted a long series of Tweets Sunday night indicating he was retiring, including a "Game of Thrones" GIF reading "My watch has ended". After offseason surgeries and the termination of his contract last week by the Sehawks because of a failed physical (see story below), Adam Schefter reported that while Baldwin want3ed to continue playing he may not be able to do so.
