Yet another positive day from the Seahawks. Some surprises and some not so surprises.
Red Bryant is doing great at DE. He has surprised some, including Coach Carroll.
"Of all the little things that we've looked at, trying to experiment and stuff, that's the one thing that looks to be really, really positive," Carroll said. "We have a chance to find a lot of plays out of Red. He has worked really hard in the offseason program, and he seems to be moving well and has taken to the position. If we were able to man the defensive end position with a guy that weighs 330 pounds, that's a good thing."
Carroll was also quoted from the Tacoma News Tribune as to loving what Charlie Whitehurst is doing. Here are a few quotes below:
“I feel very comfortable with him with the offense. He seems to have a sense for it. He’s not lagging behind any of the learning at all. Charlie has a terrific arm and a nice release and all that kind of stuff. The physical stuff is there. Up to this point Charlie has done everything we’ve asked of him, and I think he’s confident in what we’re doing right now. But it’s going to come down to playing time and to see how he does, and how he handles game situations.”
Leroy Hill was not at practice again today. Coach Carroll stated that the Seahawks are waiting to see what the league office is going to do before the Seahawks make any moves. I personally think that Hill may have played his last days with the Seahawks.
Tight End John Carlson has been a continuous bright spot during the past OTA's. He shined today in practice again. Coach Caroll stated this again about Carlson:
“He’s a versatile football player,” Carroll said. “And he’s a very good receiver. And we need to put him in positions to be successful."
Deion Branch did not participate in practice today due to surgery recovery of his knee. Will Herring was not there and is attending a family matter. LenDale White was not present due to the floods back east. He should be back in Seattle later tonight.
Just one last side note, the Seahawks have released TE Jason Pociask according to the team website. Don't ask me who he was because I didn't even know he was on the team.
