Seattle Seahawks Camp Carroll: Day 3

Published on August 2, 2010 by     

Happy birthday to Golden Tate, who turned 22 today. His gift was more of a charge. A veteran asked for doughnuts. Not Krispy Kreme, not Safeway. Yeah, Top Pot, and it wasn’t cheap. $150 or so with an extra emphasis upon maple bars.
Linebacker Aaron Curry was absent from practice. He watched practice Sunday, too, and coach Pete Carroll said Curry suffered a “ding” Saturday evening and had headaches, probably residual from the pair of whacks he delivered to Justin Forsett on Saturday afternoon.

Tight end Jameson Konz also remains out.

With Russell Okung still unsigned and Ray Willis getting the morning practice off on Monday, you’re first-string left tackle during drills was … Mansfield Wrotto.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh got the morning practice off, part of the schedule for dialing back the repetitions of some veterans. When Carroll took over he talked about believing in younger players, giving them a chance, and that is certainly evident through the first three days of practice. The depth chart is not rigid, veterans get plays and practices off. For instance, Charlie Whitehurst got most of the practice repetitions during the team drill as opposed to Matt Hasselbeck. On the defensive line, Lawrence Jackson is currently behind Red Bryant in the pecking order at left defensive end, but Jackson was getting some repetitions at defensive tackle in the Seahawks’ nickel package during Monday’s morning practice.

“If you’re about competition then you’ve got to give guys a chance,” coach Pete Carroll said. “You’ve got to show what they can do. It’s our job to find the reps so that guys can get a look out there so we know where they fit in and all that. Right now, we’re not even concerned about the depth charts being settled at all. So there is a lot of fluctuation. A lot of guys getting put in with the first group, in and out, so we can get a look at them, and get a sense from them how they fit in with the top guys.”

Whitehurst was vastly better during today’s practice as opposed to Saturday evening.

• Deon Butler ran a beautiful fly pattern, got behind cornerback Marcus Trufant and quarterback J.P. Losman put the pass right on the money … only to have Butler drop the ball on what would have been a touchdown.
