The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly had good progress discussing an extension with veteran edge rusher Carlos Dunlap to keep him with the team.
Could Carlos Dunlap stick around Seattle awhile longer? A new report suggests the Seahawks want to make it happen.
According to Corbin Smith of Seahawk Maven, the team is currently in talks with Dunlap for a multi-year extension.
Source indicates John Schneider and front office do not want to enter free agency without proven vet rusher this time around. An extension could save team several million against the cap for 2021.

Smith continued his reporting by saying Dunlap may still want to test free agency, “But progress in talks is a good sign the two sides could reach terms before start of league year.”The Seahawks got a promising return from Carlos Dunlap in 2020
The 32-year-old defensive end joined Seattle halfway through the 2020 season by way of a trade from the Bengals. The Seahawks needed a pass-rushing presence, and Dunlap fit the role.
Dunlap delivered five sacks and six tackles for loss. He tied the squad lead with 14 quarterback hits, despite playing in eight games and starting six. His veteran presence made a visible difference for the defense.
Clearly, Seattle has a good reason to keep Dunlap around. However, coming to an agreement will be a challenge, especially if Dunlap does decide to see what awaits him in free agency.
J.J. Watt just signed a two-year $31 million deal with the Cardinals. Dunlap is a similar age and profile, with better recent numbers and a more favorable injury history. He could command more money on the market than the Seahawks are interested in paying him.
An extension would allow them to avoid a costly cap hit. If the two sides can’t agree on an extension, Seattle could be forced to cut Dunlap because of cap space. At that point, they could try to re-sign him, though the cost could be high.Next: D.K. Metcalf Sends Message To Haters On LinkedIn

Highs ease to 15C in midweek but the Met Office predicted temperatures warming up again by the weekend.
The mercury could rise up to 18C next Saturday and Sunday.
Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “Daytime temperatures will rise a little over the next few days.”
“Computer models show a lot of dry weather now, then warmer spells in late April and into May seeing 25C possible in the South," The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said.13Horse riders make the most of the warm spring weatherCredit: BNPS 13Hannah Curran (left) and Emily Wilkes enjoy a picnic in the sunshine along the Thames at RichmondCredit: LNP 13People paddle board along Regent's Canal, as lockdown restrictions ease in Little Venice, LondonCredit: Reuters 13Seating outside restaurants in Battersea, London, were packed with groups basking in the sunshineCredit: Rex
A Met Office forecaster said: “Temperatures recover on Monday and most areas will feel warm by the afternoon.
“After some rain on Tuesday, most will be fine and dry to the weekend, with high pressure dominating and temperatures probably warming slightly by the weekend.
“Plenty of sunny spells are expected into May, with the possibility of warmer spells.”
The Met Office's long forecast predicts the first half of May will see good temperatures.
It says: "Mixed weather patterns, typical of spring are most likely through the first half of May.13Friends celebrate the first weekend of freedom since Boris Johnson eased lockdown restrictionsCredit: LNP 13Police patrol a beach in Brighton after it is believed a detectors found a suspect item on the shingle near the pierCredit: Alamy
"Overall, fine and dry weather is expected to be most dominant, with fair-weather cloud and plenty of sunny spells."
It reached 17C today and will continue to rise tomorrow and Tuesday, with highs of 18C expected across both days.
Thrilled Brits have been snapped messing about on rivers, riding horses through brightly coloured fields and strolling in parks.
It comes after Covid restrictions were lifted and people can now happily mingle more freely.
“Daytime temperatures will rise a little over the next few days,"Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said.
Light showers are set to interrupt the springtime scorcher on Wednesday but temperatures will still remain well above the 13C April average.

Spokesman Harry Aitkenhead said: "We've endured plenty of cold days this April but the sun is beginning to shine and the long-range forecast looks good.

The 4.6C UK average temperature up to mid-month is 2.8C below the 7.4C usual April temperature over the whole month.
This month's mark will increase a little as the mercury rises, but, with cold nights, it would take an unforecast heatwave to prevent the month ending colder-than-average.
April will be the coldest since 1989 if the month's average temperature - which includes day and night temperatures - stays more than 1.1C below normal, Met Office records show.A horse and trap races across the shoreline on a sunny day 13Members of the public exercise during sunny weather in Greenwich Park in South East LondonCredit: LNP 13Temperatures could rise to highs of 25C next weekend.
