While the negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement have been extended until this Friday, March 11, rosters are frozen. The league year has ended and teams can no longer cut, re-sign or trade for players until there is a new agreement. Teams and players can still negotiate, allowing for multiple plans regarding re-signing former players, approaching the draft and accounting for whenever free agency finally occurs. 

The Seahawks' moves to this point for the 2011 season place the focus on special teams and depth, a strategy that was used by the team in free agency last season.  However, major holes still remain.

However, a realistic outlook suggests that the process is a long way from over. No matter what, the Seahawks face some major concerns heading forward into the possible lockout.
