The Seahawks are off the field following their second open OTA of the spring. Here are a few notes.
The Seahawks have concluded their second OTA that is open to the media.
Here are a few quick notes.
- The Seahawks made one roster move, waiving undrafted free agent cornerback Jamal Marshall, who had signed after impressing as a tryout player at rookie camp. No corresponding addition to the roster has been made yet.
- There were no new significant personnel moves. Michael Bennett and Chris Clemons remain absent. Everyone else of note was present. The injury situation appeared similar to last week with offensive line coach Tom Cable saying he hopes RT J’Marcus Webb will be back next week after having suffered a “pretty severe calf strain’’ the week before OTAs, and Garry Gilliam still recovering from having had surgery to remove a cyst on his knee. With those two out, Terry Poole (RT) and Bradley Sowell (LT) are getting a lot of work.
- Justin Britt talked afterward about his move to center, and said that while he’s losing some hair having now played three positions in three years, he’s excited for the challenge of center and that if it works out it will be the best thing for his career long-term. “I just want to be one of the five they put out on the field on Sundays,’’ he said.
- K.J. Wright, who had been out last week after the birth of his son, was back and got into, as Cable called it, “a disagreement among brothers’’ with rookie Germain Ifedi — essentially, a brief bit of pushing and shoving and finger pointing. Cable said it was the first such dust-up during these OTAs.
- As Cable noted, rookie running backs C.J. Prosise and Zach Brooks remain out, Prosise having suffered a hip flexor injury last week. That leaves Christine Michael getting a lot of work at TB along with Alex Collins, with Thomas Rawls also still out.
- Rookie DL Quinton Jefferson is now wearing No. 99. He had been wearing No. 92.
- No other position moves were reported or apparent and rotations appeared the same.
