The Seahawks finished mandatory minicamp last, and C.J. Prosise found himself hurt again. Here is some of the Seattle news fit to read from last week.

The Seahawks are done with offseason activities. When Seattle comes together next, it will be for the start of training camp in July. This means football season is coming up really soon! And while most of Seattle’s minicamp seemed to go pretty well and softly, there was still some news to take away.


Russell Wilson is really good. We 12s all knew this already but in minicamp Wilson looked as sharp as ever throwing to new wideouts Gary Jennings and D.K. Metcalf. Of course, he was throwing to them when there was no pressure on Wilson, but Wilson is great. The question is whether Metcalf and Jennings will be able to catch passes when they are harassed by opposing NFL defenders.

Wilson signed a huge contract extension this offseason. This isn’t news. But Wilson said he doesn’t feel any extra pressure because he will be making even more money. One of the great things about Wilson is he has always been self-motivating. He wants to succeed. Now he just earns a bit more money trying to be good.

In other minicamp news, Bradley McDougald stated he would rather play strong safety than free safety. McDougald is versatile to be good enough to play both. The question becomes what is best for the Seahawks. There are high hopes for Marquise Blair in a year or two, and Blair is really a strong safety. Would McDougald be OK with playing free safety long term? I hope so. He has been really good in Seattle.

C.J. Prosise hut, yet again

In less happy news from minicamp, and even less surprising, is that Prosise found himself injured again. He hurt his hamstring. The injury appears minor. However, even though Prosise showed flashes of being good what seems like 713 years ago, he has mostly been banged up his entire career.

Next. 3 needs the Seahawks still have for 2019. dark

At some point, maybe even this season, Prosise probably needs to be let go. He just can’t stay healthy enough to take a roster spot from someone who actually might make the field for a meaningful snap or five. Prosise seems like a good guy. But that doesn’t make him worthy of getting paid to be a member of the Seahawks.
