Brady Henderson ESPN
Right guard Jordan Simmons, placed on season-ending Injured Reserve today, should be back with the Seahawks next year. Seattle rushed for 273, 214 and 168 yards in the three games he started for D.J. Fluker and averaged 138 in the other 11. Simmons will be an exclusive-rights free agent, meaning the Seahawks can control his rights as long as they tender him a contract for at least the league minimum of $570,000. Simmons would give the Seahawks an alternative if they don't re-sign Fluker and/or left guard J.R. Sweezy, who are playing on one-year deals worth around $1.5 million. The team will have to account for Simmons' extensive injury history while evaluating its options.
