Seahawks Return To Renton: Team Looks Toward Next Season

The NFL Draft is April 25 in New York; Hawks have 25th pick in the first round.

The Seattle Seahawks returned to the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton late Sunday evening after losing a heart breaker game to Atlanta 30-28 in the NFC Divisional game. The Falcons will host the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday at 11 a.m. (Pacific Time) for the NFC Championship.

What's next for the Seahawks?

Players will clean out their lockers on Monday, and embark on some well-deserved down time, where players mull over future plans. General Manager John Schneider and Head Coach Pete Carroll will work toward next season's team, starting with the National Football League Draft on April 25.
