McCoy has struggled with injuries, missing the last two easons after tearing each Achilles tendon. Now that Jimmy Graham is in the fold, McCoy will serve as a second tight end and will be used a lot in blocking. He adds depth to the position, as this is another solid move by the Seahawks not to let McCoy walk away.

Gregg Scruggs — Grade: B
Scruggs showed promise as a rookie but has since been hampered by injuries. The Seahawks re-signed the defensive end to a one-year deal. Seattle hopes Scruggs can stay healthy for the whole year and help put some pressure on the QB.

Mike Morgan — Grade: B+
This was a big move by the Seahawks, as the linebacker is just starting to come in to his own. Pete Carroll said at the end of last year the recent stretch included the best football he had ever seen Morgan play. Morgan has become a leader on and off the field for Seattle and will be with the Seahawks for at least one more season.

Will Blackmon — Grade: B-
The cornerback from Jacksonville originally drafted by Seattle is back with the Seahawks on a one-year deal worth $955,000. Blackmon was solid in Jacksonville and was excellent against the run. He gives the Seahawks some much-needed depth at the cornerback position.

Cary Williams — Grade: B+
With the Legion of Boom beat up, fans started to worry about the Seahawks' secondary. Byron Maxwell bolted for a big contract in Philly, but the Seahawks didn’t make fans worry for long. Cary Williams comes over from the Eagles and is a solid, well-tested corner. Williams signed for four years with $7 million guaranteed and will in all likelihood replace Maxwell in the starting lineup.

Jimmy Graham — Grade: A+
The trade that sent shockwaves through the NFL. The Seahawks obtained one of the best pass-catching tight ends of all time. He will be Russell Wilson’s new No. 1 target and a great red-zone threat for the Seahawks. Graham didn’t come cheap, as they had to trade away Pro Bowl center Max Unger to get him. In the end it will be worth it to Seattle, as they finally have that big weapon for Wilson to target.
