LIKE FATHER-IN-LAW LIKE SON-IN-LAW?

Published on June 12, 2010 by     

After he was selected in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL draft, Bryant was issued No. 79. It was significant because that’s the number Ring of Honor defensive end Jacob Green wore for 12 highly productive seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.

That was before Bryant married one of Green’s three daughters, Janelle. Now, Bryant has been moved from defensive tackle to left end – the spot where Green lined up while collecting his club-record 116 sacks.

While Bryant points out that the 252-pound Green would be more suited to playing the “Leo” position that lines up opposite him in the current Seahawks defense, Green started 176 games on the left side.

“Mr. Green is excited,” Bryant said after practice – and, yes, he still refers to his father-in-law as Mister. “In fact, he called me last night just to see how my practice is going. With me playing D-end now, he’s got so many suggestions – from how to use my hands, to getting off the ball, to losing weight.

“He’s really proud, and I’m proud that I’m making him proud. He’s just excited to see finally see me get an opportunity, and I’m excited and grateful.”

ROOKIE WATCH

Kam Chancellor. The 232-pound rookie strong safety came up with a couple of plays to end practice that were as big as he is.

On the first, the fifth-round draft choice from Virginia Tech intercepted a Losman pass in the end zone that was intended for tight end Cameron Morrah. On the next, Chancellor tipped a pass incomplete.

His double-dip of impressive plays set up a helmet-raising, fist-pumping celebration by the entire defense as coach Pete Carroll called his players to the middle of the field in the indoor practice facility.

Chancellor is working with the No. 3 defense, with fellow rookie James Brindley at free safety. Veteran Lawyer Milloy (strong) and rookie Earl Thomas (free) continue to fill the safety spots in the No. 1 defense, while Jordan Babineaux and Jamar Adams are in the No. 2 unit. But if he continues to make plays like he today, Chancellor will push for more time.
