The Super Bowl is barely in the books and it’s already time to look ahead to the 2018 NFL season.
The Seattle Seahawks finished 2017 with a 9-7 record and failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011. The organization wasted no time in parting ways with key members of its coaching staff including both offensive and defensive coordinators.
As free agency and the NFL draft approach, the Seahawks will take a long, hard look at their roster in planning for the future.
Here are the important dates in February for the Seahawks and the rest of the league.
February 5 Waiver system begins for 2018.
February 13 Beginning at 12 p.m. EST (9 a.m. PT), NFL clubs may begin to sign players whose 2017 CFL contracts have expired. Players under contract to a CFL club for the 2018 season or who have an option for the 2018 season are not eligible to be signed.
February 20 First day for clubs to designate Franchise or Transition Players.
