Breaking news: seattle seahawks coach Mike Macdonald has just been proving guilty he we now face….

The Seattle Seahawks reshaped their roster this month with a flurry of activity that started with the releases of Quandre Diggs, Jamal Adams, and Will Dissly and continued through the early stages of free agency.
