Seahawks free agency update: Peterson visiting, lose out on Lang

SEATTLE - For Seahawks fans, the free agency period has been something of a waiting game.

Three days into NFL free agency, Seattle has just one official signing in former Jacksonville offensive lineman Luke Joeckel, whose addition was officially announced by the team on Saturday. But that doesn't mean there isn't a lot more going on.

Here's a quick roundup of where we stand as of Sunday morning:

UPDATED 10:15 a.m.: Guard T.J. Lang, a Pro Bowler with the Packers in 2016, signed a three-year deal with his hometown Detroit Lions Sunday, according to his agent. Lang, a top target for Seattle, visited the Seahawks on Saturday and also considered a return to Green Bay.

"This is my first time going through this free agency frenzy in my eight-year career," he told WXYZ-TV in Detroit on Sunday. "Honestly, it was exciting for a little bit of time, but it was stressful. I'm ready to get it done with. I've got to weigh my options. I want to get something done by this weekend."

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Seattle hosted former Packers running back Eddie Lacy on Friday before Lacy's free agency tour continued with the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday.

Meanwhile, former All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson, who reportedly named the Seahawks and the Oakland Raiders as his preferred destinations ahead of the free agency period, will visit Seattle on Sunday according to a report from CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

La Canfora also confirmed earlier reports that the team will host veteran running backs Jamaal Charles and Latavius Murray.

Several former Seahawks players have found new homes around the league, including kicker Stephen Hauschka, who signed with the Buffalo Bills on the first day of free agency. Also leaving are linebacker Brock Coyle, who left for the NFC West-rival San Francisco 49ers on Friday, and defensive end Damontre Moore, who signed with the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday.
