Seattle Seahawks break camp with plenty of questions that need answered


Today was the last day of training camp for the Seattle Seahawks. The team has managed to answer very few questions that they had when camp opened.

Seattle still doesn’t know when, or if, Kam Chancellor will report. He continues to hold out for a new contract, and the team continues to insist that they won’t alter one that has three years remaining on it.

The Seahawks also don’t know who are going to be the starters on the offensive line. Russell Okung and J.R Sweezy are the only guys who have a spot locked up. Everyone else is still in limbo. They’ve tried five different players at LG, and two at both center and RT. We may not know for another week or two who will start in Week 1.

We also have no idea who is going to be on the roster at wide receiver. Every guy that is on the roster is making plays. Baldwin and Lockett are clearly above everyone else, but the rest of the field is surprisingly even.

We also don’t have much clarity on the interior of the defensive line. There are plenty of pass rushers, but there is a lack of big bodied guys capable of anchoring the run defense.

The team will have a walk-though tomorrow, and travel to Kansas City for a game on Friday. Then they’ll be back to work on Monday with the same schedule at the same practice facility as the last three weeks. So how it is that training camp is over?

Basically, the only difference is where the players sleep. After practice today, everyone who has a place to stay locally will check out of the team hotel and return home to their families.

Given that amount of time that everyone spends in meetings and in the film room, it’ll be hard to notice any difference. That is, until they take the field and don’t have 2,500 or more fans watching. The berm will be empty now, as practices are no longer open to the public.
