ADDITIONAL QUICK OBSERVATIONS FROM PRACTICE
GERALD EVERETT IMPRESSES
Off-season acquisition Tight end Gerald Everett had the catch of the day when Russell Wilson found Everett creeping on the corner of the left endzone for fingertip nimble toes touchdown catch. Notable because this could be a sign of big of things to come. Everett know was with offensive coordinator Shane Waldron in LA and intricately knows the offense.
BOBBY WAGNERS IS LEADING BY EXAMPLE
Despite being mostly an observer perennial defensive captain and Pro Bowler line backer Bobby Wagner continues to lead by example with commitment and consistency.
“You definitely want to stress that. I try to help the young guys in all facets, cause you guys asked about 10 years, and you know I’ve been fortunate and blessed. Not everyone makes it to 10 years. The average span in the NFL for players is like three years. And so a lot of the help is not just on the field, it’s off the field, trying to make sure that you’re good, make sure your family is good, make sure that your head is on straight, and doing whatever I can to guide you in whatever way that you want.
We definitely have to do better at finding our second passion. I think there has been this idea that we are supposed to focus on one thing for a long period of time. When you do that and then lose it, then you don’t know what to do. So, I think it’s important for guys to explore other passions but also keeping the main thing, the main thing.”
PENNY HART ALSO IMPRESS
Two days into the training camp one consistent performer is wide receiver, Penny Hart. The third-year wide receiver is looking to push for some playing time knowing ball reps are going to be few. With Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf is set to get a majority of the looks and attention from opposing defensives a consistent third wideout could have a good decent year underneath the radar. The Seahawks used one of their three drafts picks on WR D’Wayne Eskridge from Western Michigan signaling there will be high expectations and stiff competition for the third wideout spot. Speaking of Lockett he had a couple of nice receptions from Wilson.
