49ers to visit with former Seahawks cornerback Wednesday

Rumor: Seattle Seahawks to release DeShawn Shead

The move, which is expected to happen on Monday, has nothing to do with the purge of veteran Seahawks defenders that has already claimed Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett and Jeremy Lane. However, according to ESPN, the Seahawks had promised Shead - who spent 2017 on a restricted-free-agent tender of $1.2 million - he would become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Shead spend most of last season on the physically able to perform list after tearing his ACL during the 2016-17 playoffs. It's anyone's guess what general manager John Schneider will do on draft day, but it doesn't hurt to speculate with the big day creeping up on us.

Seattle has reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension with Bradley McDougald. Shead's contract tolled for 2018, but the Seahawks aren't interested in keeping him around.

But, instead of holding on to him, the Seahawks have made a decision to let him test free agency this offseason.

Once released, Shead would be eligible to sign anywhere without having to wait until the start of free agency March 14.

Shead is scheduled to meet the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers this week, but the Seahawks will also get the chance to convince him to stay. But as detailed Saturday, the Seahawks still hope to re-sign Shead with the release being done to as something of a favor to Shead since each side assumed that when he signed a year ago he would be a free agent now.

The Seahawks have renewed their Kam Chancellor insurance package.

So here it is - my look at how the Seahawks could spend their eight picks during the 2018 NFL Draft. "We'll see what happens. I have not talked directly to him about that, but we have mentioned it to him".
