  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Lands three-year extension

    The Seahawks signed Nwosu to a three-year extension Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The extension keeps Nwosu in Seattle through the 2026 season and is worth up to $59 million with $32 million guaranteed. Signed to a two-year, $19.055 million deal ahead of the 2022 campaign, Nwosu had a career year in Seattle last season, registering 9.5 sacks, 12 TFLs, 26 quarterback hits, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. The 26-year-old will again key Seattle's pass rush off the edge.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Enjoys breakout season in Seattle

    Nwosu posted 67 tackles (42 solo), 9.5 sacks, four pass breakups, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 17 regular-season games in 2022.

    Nwosu totaled 9.5 sacks over the previous two seasons with the Chargers, but he broke out in Seattle's system while averaging a career-high 51 defensive snaps per game. The 2018 second-round pick just turned 26 years old, so he may not have hit his peak yet. Nwosu has only one year left on his contract in Seattle, so he'll be a candidate for an extension this offseason.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Notches third two-sack game

    Nwosu posted four solo tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Rams.

    Nwosu recorded his third two-sack performance in five weeks, and he has extended his career high to nine sacks in his first season with the Seahawks. His previous career high is five sacks, so this is a significant breakout for his fifth NFL season. At just 25 years old, Nwosu certainly has room to grow, but this has been an excellent season for IDP purposes.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Back-to-back two-sack games

    Nwosu recorded four tackles (three solo), including two sacks, during Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

    Sunday's contest versus Arizona accounted for the second consecutive game where Nwosu amassed two sacks, as he did so in Week 8 against the Giants. The 25-year-old is now up to an impressive 40 tackles, seven sacks, three passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery through Seattle's first nine games this season, and he'll look to keep his effective 2022 campaign rolling into Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers in Germany.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Notches two sacks

    Nwosu recorded six tackles (five solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants.

    Nwosu has tied his career high through just eight games, as he has posted five sacks thus far. The fifth-year linebacker is proving he's a dependable pass-rushing asset. However, he has averaged 4.5 tackles per game, so he doesn't provide high fantasy value unless he gets to the quarterback.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Logs full practice Thursday

    Nwosu (shoulder) was listed as a full participant on the Seahawks' injury report Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Nwosu appeared to suffer a shoulder injury during Sunday's loss to San Francisco. The linebacker logged four tackles and one pass defended while he saw fewer snaps than in Week 1 potentially due to the issue. With Nwosu back at practice fully, it's likely his snap count will see an uptick Sunday against the Falcons.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Picks up injury

    Nwosu (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Nwosu is dealing with an unspecified shoulder injury following Sunday's 27-7 loss to the 49ers, in which he tallied four tackles and one pass defended. The 25-year-old did play a smaller percentage of his team's defensive snaps (71 percent) in Week 2 compared to Seattle's season opener (89 percent), though it's unclear if this was due to any physical limitations related to his shoulder. Nwosu signed a two-year, $20 million deal as a free agent with the Seahawks this offseason, and he figures to play a prominent pass-rushing role when healthy this season.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Excellent debut

    Nwosu recorded seven tackles (three solo), a sack, a pass breakup and a forced fumble in Monday's 17-16 win against the Broncos.

    Nwosu played 59 of 66 defensive snaps (89 percent). He and Darrell Taylor (54 snaps) are the top edge rushers, but Nwosu had the more impressive stat line as Taylor failed to post a stop. Nwosu should have some IDP appeal moving forward, but it's worth noting his career highs are 40 tackles and five sacks.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Two stops in loss

    Nwosu posted two solo tackles -- one for a loss -- in Thursday's 27-11 preseason loss to the Bears.

    Nwosu arrived in Seattle after posting 9.5 sacks and 13.0 tackles for loss over the last two seasons with the Seahawks. He signed a two-year, $20 million contract, so he should have a secure role on the edge in 2022. The Seahawks have a solid set of edge rushers with Nwosu, Darrell Taylor and rookie second-round pick Boye Mafe, and they'll be key to assisting the team's young secondary.
