Some more highlights;
#55 DE Frank Clark was held out of practice for disciplinary reason per DC Kris Richard.
Lockett says he would play tomorrow (in a game) if he could. Also said he couldn't remember Christmas due to the painkillers he was on.
#90 DT Nazair Jones carries the veterans pad; as-is tradition.
Charles Robinson, from Yahoo! Sports, says the Seahawks Line Drills are basically the Hunger Games.
@veda-the-moor said in Malik McDowell injured:
If it's a concussion and facial injuries, how bad can it be? Is his eye hanging out or something? Someone sneak in and get real information!
Happened to bfs. Maybe we should ask him to look into it.
I feel like Pocic will be starting somewhere along the line by opening day. It just has that feel to it.
On the down side..not really hearing much about any other rookie. Its early but I cant be alone in hoping we would hear more about Griffin, for example.
I am a big fan of this as well. Not like an absolute..I can see situations where I might want Kearse out there instead..but in general, I think Richardson has more upside. With all the competition Kearse has to be on the table as an unexpected cut.. I doubt it, but Kasem Williams is seemingly bringing it this year.. obviously Lockett makes its.. all of a sudden a great camp / preseason by a couple of people puts Kearse on the bubble. Doubt it..but..
Malik McDowell has reported to Camp. Has not met with Pete yet.
Pete Carroll said Malik McDowell is in Seattle, but the coach has not yet met with the rookie defensive lineman. "He's in the area now. He got into town," Carroll said. "We're really anxious to let everybody see him, take care of him, look after him and find out first-hand. Everything has been through communication with the doctors at the other end, which has been in-depth, but we'll get to see him and do all the stuff and figure out what it all means."
Kendrick Lamar is buddies with Bobby Wagner and made an appearance. Lamar is not the first celebrity who visits the VMAC during Training Camp.
Not sure many other teams would allow this kind of thing to happen for fear of being labeled a "distraction."

Good write up, Sammy! Much appreciated!
Did Lawker look bigger?
Did you happen to take note of how the RBs got their reps?
With no pads, Lawler look a little more built but like Richardson, they both look long and lean. Depending on which team he gets the most time with will probably determine his depth chart role.
Lacy got minimal reps in the 11-on-11 drills that I saw. I was positioned closer to the DBs and Special Team coverage based on where I was sitting. In the 11-on-11 drills, Collins and Rawls got the most of the reps that I saw.
“I’m a guy who wears his emotions on his sleeve,” Sherman wrote Friday in a column for The Players’ Tribune. “I don’t care about what people think of me. If you love me, great. If you hate me, that’s cool, too. I just want people’s opinions of me to be rooted in fact, not speculation or conjecture. For example, there were people who said that I wanted out of Seattle this off-season. That could not be further from the truth. The truth is, I do not want out of Seattle.”
A former player, Lemuel Jeanpierre is one of those self made players.. started on the practice squad before making it to the 53 man roster and having a nice 6 year career, mostly as a back up but with a few starts.
He now is an offensive assistant. Cool to hear these stories.
If youre like me and cant attend training camp this year, youre in luck -- there are several ways of watching a live stream from it. Ive heard in the past it was just a partial broadcast or at times you couldnt see..so no promises but there is a way to get at least a bit in on the action. Details here:
Totally agree, thats what I was alluding to during out podcast. Football practice isnt a knitting class, it isnt debate class, it isnt alter boy practice. Its a different culture and calling out mistakes in the heat of the moment like that isnt particularly rare and certainly doesnt have the same implications or consequences as it would in any non-sports type situation.
I was waiting for an "aha" moment but then I realized that I already consider Wilson to be among the top-5 QBs in the league already.
What this article really solidifies is how efficient Wilson is with the football. It's not prayer passes and break-away plays defining his career. All QBs get bailed out everyone once in a while but Wilson bails out his offensive line, RBs, TEs, and WRs just as much.
I remember talking to Seahawk fans that still didn't think that Wilson was "great" because he didn't put up stats, efficiencies be-damned. We have seen his evolution and the one thing is clear that he has gotten better and better. Inspite of his injury he was still efficient with the ball.
@veda-the-moor I don't disagree with that take at all and that's exactly why they went out and got Lacy. I'm just not sure the line is good enough to allow it to unfold. I hope they are because it would open everything up. If the line is as bad as last year they will need someone who can can create on his own and make people miss and that guy is Prosise, that's why I'm taking the under dog in this race. I hope the line is better though, I really do.
I am hoping that Griffin steps it up in Training Camp and gets the starting RCB.
If that happens we are in a great position and he has shown himself to be a quick learner. Would love it! The ideal scenario really.
