For Pete’s sake: Three Seahawks who were awful vs. Cowboys on Friday
By Lee Vowell
Seahawks receiver Aaron Fuller
I am sure there is something Aaron Fuller can do productively on an NFL field but I don’t think we have found what that is yet. I mean, yes, he’s better than I am but if that is your comparison then you haven’t watched much football. Fuller is somehow trying to make an NFL roster and I can run a 40-yard dash in about 5 minutes.
But Fuller has had one of the worst preseason in recent memory. He played in all three games and caught 5 of his 15 targets for 48 yards. He did try to run three punts but had a total net gain of 7 yards. None of this includes his 2 preseason turnovers either. One was a fumble against the Bears. The other was nearly single-handedly causing an interception against the Cowboys.
The play seemed decent enough. He started out wide right, went out, made a cut inside which allowed him to be well clear of the defender and Drew Lock threw him the ball. This is when the fun really began. Unlike Tyler Lockett, who could make the kind of catch Fuller botched in Lockett’s sleep, Fuller dove for the ball – to be fair the pass did lead him just a bit – got both arms on the pass, the ball bounced off of him very high in the air and became an easy interception for Dallas.
Fuller shouldn’t make the team, of course. But he also shouldn’t be on the practice team either. Having him be there puts the Seahawks at risk of having to promote him should every other Seattle receiver get hurt and that would be the last thing anyone should have to do.
