But he hopes to stay healthy and earn some playing time this season. Athletically gifted, Konz has to prove he can be effective at this level.

Konz says he’s been in Seattle the last two months working out with Matt Hasselbeck and others at the University of Washington.

Konz: “I don’t have any insight on what my role might be. Whether it’s receiver, tight end or H-back, I’ll do everything I can. The position doesn’t matter. My love of the game is profound. I just want a chance.

“I feel like I’ve recovered 100 percent. I still feel fast. I feel back to normal. I know I have the passion and the potential to do whatever they want me to do.”
