Seattle Seahawks 2010 Training Camp Preview

Published on July 22, 2010 by     

REPORT DATES: July 29th (Rookies), July 30th (Veterans)

SITE: Virginia Mason Athletic Center, Renton, WA

CAMP OBJECTIVES: The first training camp of the Pete Carroll era in Seattle will have to follow an aggressive agenda, as a team that expects to win immediately needs to solidify a few key positions before the meaningful opener.

The biggest could be at running back, where Julius Jones is a career underachiever, Justin Forsett is intriguing but undersized, and Leon Washington is coming off a major leg injury and undersized. The backup QB battle between Charlie Whitehurst and J.P. Losman should also be interesting. Up front, rookie left tackle Russell Okung and guard Ben Hamilton (ex-Broncos) need to be difference-makers.

On the other side of the ball, the most pressing concern is at defensive end, where Patrick Kerney, Cory Redding, and Darryl Tapp are all ex-Seahawks. Chris Clemons (ex-Eagles) and Lawrence Jackson must prove that they’re up to the task there.

But the player to watch for the Seattle “D” will be free safety Earl Thomas, the No. 14 pick in the April draft. Thomas needs to make an immediate impact for a Hawks secondary that has made few big plays in recent years, and waved goodbye to mainstays Ken Lucas and Deon Grant in the offseason.

PRESEASON SCHEDULE:

Aug 14 – vs. Tennessee, 10:00 PM Aug 21 – vs. Green Bay, 10:00 PM Aug 28 – at Minnesota, 8:00 PM Sep 2 – at Oakland, 10:00 PM
