The Seattle Seahawks have officially opened Training Camp today. There is some familiar battles that we all know about, and some that are a little less known. Whether you are rooting for a certain player or the team as a whole, Training Camp is an exciting thing! There are new players here in Seattle, and some questions that will need to be answered.
One of the new players that is entering camp today is #84, Antonio Bryant. Bryant has been out of the NFL for the last few seasons, but he has trained hard, and is poised to make a comeback. Carroll previously has added former receivers(Mike Williams) to see if they can get back into the swing of things. Like Williams, Bryant is a big physical receiver( 6’1″ 211 lbs.) that has the knowledge to stress opposing defenses. With other big receivers in Seattle, like Doug Baldwin, Sidney Rice, Bryant has a good shot at filling up the WR core and will add match-up problems for opposing defenses.
Other new faces in camp this year are the draftees, with Bruce Irvin and Bobby Wagner leading the way. Irvin hopes to have a double-digit sack season this year playing for the Seahawks. Wagner is getting a shot to be the starting MLB for the Seahawks, and is eerily similar to Lofa Tatupu, when he was drafted by the Seahawks.
We can’t forget to mention some of the other new faces in camp this year, Alex Barron(#73), Matt Flynn(#15), Jason Jones(#90), Kregg Lumpkin(#20), Deuce Lutui(#72), Charly Martin(#14), Frank Omiyale(#65), Barrett Ruud(#57), and Kellon Winslow(#82). All of the numbers are courtesy of Seahawks.com.
With all the new faces in camp, there are some faces that have been here that will remain to be a focus for most of the 12th man. Marshawn Lynch, Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, and Michael Robinson. All of the old, mixed with the new to create a fascinating season for the Seahawks. Will it be 12-4, or will it be 6-10, the Seahawks have begun their march for the division title. Whatever the final outcome may be, the Seahawks have now become a focus for the national media. It’s finally time for some football!
