Seahawks players get together for workout at UW

Published on June 2, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Players in attendance included Marcus Trufant, Matt Hasselbeck, Aaron Curry, Charlie Whitehurst, Lawyer Milloy, David Hawthorne and Jordan Babineaux, along with University of Washington products Mason Foster and Nate Williams.

About 35 Seattle Seahawks players, free agents and players with other NFL teams gathered at the University of Washington’s indoor practice facility for an informal workout on Thursday.

A handful of Seattle players had been gathering at UW informally for the past, two months. But this full-fledged workout, organized by running back Justin Forsett, is the first time Seattle players got together for a practice during the league’s lockout, which began in March.

Most of the Seahawks in attendance live in the Seattle area. However, Whitehurst, the only Seattle quarterback under contract, made it a point to fly in from Atlanta.

“I’m always looking for a chance to get together with the guys I’m going to throw to,” Whitehurst told Tim Booth of the Associated Press. “I don’t know if it matters what position you play, but the guys who came felt it was important. Quarterbacks, obviously every opportunity we get, we’re going to take it.”

Players discussed the looming lockout, remaining optimistic that things would get back to normal sooner rather than later.

“It’s just weird not playing football right now,” Seahawks offensive lineman Max Unger told Booth. “We’d normally have just less than a month of offseason and then we’d be off till fall camp. … I don’t really know man, that stuff is up in the air. There is a lot of red tape to cut through.”
