Seattle Seahawks training camp: notes from day 1


Training camp for the Seattle Seahawks officially got underway this morning. Each day, we’ll have notes from the practice. The extent of each day’s notes will depend on if we have writers at the VMAC for practice and what is shown on team’s official video feed.

Here’s the notes from the first day of training camp:

  • The video feed of practice today was garbage. Instead of actually showing practice, it was all talking heads from Q13. The producer responsible for that nonsense should be drawn and quartered (not really, but I’m extremely annoyed).
  • Because of that I don’t have much to saw about actual drills today. Holli was there at camp, and will be back there tomorrow. We’ll have to lean on her commentary on how players did. Hopefully she’ll post something in the next day or so.
  • The defense wore green shirts instead of the typical white. The color was very similar to what the Sounders wear, and what the team used for an alternate jersey color a few years ago.
  • Still no Kam Chancellor at the VMAC. The holdout is officially on. Given that he’s still rehabbing an injured MCL from last season, its unlikely that he’d be on the field anyways.
  • Lemuel Jean-Pierre and Drew Nowak split time with the first team at center. Patrick Lewis and Kristjan Sokoli split time with the backups. That’s an interesting order, given that Lewis was the presumed starter before the June OTAs.
  • Jeremy Lane, Tharold Simon, Earl Thomas and Paul Richardson were all placed on the PUP list. Simon should be take off of in in the next few days. Only Lane appears destined to land on the regular season PUP and be forced to miss an extended period.
  • With Kam holding out and Earl injured, the starting safeties were DeShawn Shead and Steven Terrell.
  • Robert Turbin was a full participant. He missed all of the the spring and summer work after offseason hip surgery.
  • Jesse Williams was present but didn’t practice. He is still recovering from kidney surgery and cancer treatment. Pete Carroll said he’ll practice once he gets back into football shape.
