The Seahawks have begun another training camp exercise, their third on time.
Here are some takeaways from the media that were on the site.
DK Metcalf’s return
After signing a new contract that included a $30 million signing bonus, star wide receiver DK Metcalf returned to practice after sitting out the first two seasons. Metcalf’s new deal ties him with Stephen Diggs for the sixth-highest annual salary among the widest recipients and prepares him to cash in again when he’s just 28.
D’Escridge, Trey Brown are still out
Unfortunately, second-year wide receiver D’Escridge is still out with his hamstring injury. Escridge was limited on the first day of camp and has not been participating since. He also missed most of his rookie season due to injuries.
Second-year cornerback Trey Brown has also been sidelined. He is one of the four players who have started camp in the PUP list.
Pete Carroll in Rare
To begin practice, head coach Pete Carroll displayed his unusual zeal for his age, whispering down a line of fans and giving each and every one of them high-fives. Carol will turn 71 in September.
Backup protection gets a twist
With Jamal Adams (finger) and Quandre Diggs (rest) not participating today, Seattle’s two backup safaris got time to run with a first-team defense. Including Ryan Neal and Marquis Blair.
First Team OL . With Stone Forsythe, Phil Haynes
Second-year OL Stone Forsythe has been named the away No. 3 option in the right tackle competition. However today it was his turn in the sun. Jake Curhan is getting most of the first team reps, as well as rookie Abe Lucas getting some. Phil Haynes also had a chance to run with the starters on right guard, as Gabe Jackson got the day off.
Josh Jones picks Geno Smith
It’s been a rough start for the camp to pick up starting quarterback Geno Smith, who was picked by Josh Jones as he tried to hit tight end Noah Feint at seam root. Jordan Brooks is helped by a tip.
Kobe Bryant shines in the red zone
Rookie cornerback Kobe Bryant continues to impress, as he has done throughout the off-season. He broke another pass from Geno Smith, aimed at a tight end – taking one away from Colby Parkinson in the end zone. The play earned some publicity from its peers.
The Seahawks will leave again tomorrow and return to practice on Monday.
