Monday in Hawkville: New tight end joins right in

Published on September 3, 2012 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Evan Moore. The newest member of the Seahawks said his life has been a whirlwind since the Browns waived him on Friday. Today, that whirlwind plopped in the middle of the team’s practice field.

And the fifth-year tight end wasn’t a sideline spectator. Moore ran routes, caught passes and blocked as he hurries to learn the ins and outs of the offense with the regular-season opener against the Cardinals in Arizona looming on Sunday.

“It’s been a whirlwind since Saturday afternoon,” said Moore, who’s listed at 6 foot 6, 250 pounds but looks taller and leaner.

Saturday afternoon is when the Seahawks first contacted Moore, following the release of tight end Kellen Winslow. Moore flew from Cleveland to Seattle on Sunday morning.

As for the quick immersion into practice and the offense, Moore said, “As of late last night, I was part of this team. So I knew I was going to have to be ready to go for this Monday practice.”

Even while he continues to feel his way through the process of changing teams, conferences, cities and time zones.

“Considering these guys all just went through camp together, I’m kind of the new guy,” he said. “You almost feel like a rookie. You walk in the building and everybody’s looking at you like, ‘Who’s this guy?’

“There is a learning curve, but fortunately there’s a lot of translation between what we did in Cleveland and what we’re doing here – both in terminology and schematically, and X’s and O’s, and all that. I’m fortunate that’s the case.”

Moore said he heard from other teams after being waived, but quickly added, “This is where I wanted to be. There was no question in my mind. I wanted to come play for coach (Pete) Carroll and be a Seahawk.”

POSITION WATCH

Guard. Rookie J.R. Sweezy continued to work at right guard, where he started the last three preseason games. But James Carpenter, last year’s first-round draft choice, got some work at left guard with the No. 2 line.

Carpenter was just activated off the physically unable to perform list following a grueling rehab from the season-ending knee injury he got last November.

IN ’N OUT

The big news was the big presence of Carpenter, but wide receiver Doug Baldwin, defensive lineman Jason Jones and safety Chris Maragos also returned to practice after missing time because of injuries.

Wide receiver Golden Tate did not practice to rest the knee he twisted in Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Raiders. Braylon Edwards worked at split end for Tate. Also sitting out were running back Marshawn Lynch (back) and rookie defensive lineman Greg Scruggs (hamstring).

Cornerback Phillip Adams, who was waived by the Seahawks on Friday, was claimed by the Raiders. Wide receiver Kris Durham (Lions) and cornerback Ron Parker (Panthers) have been signed to other teams’ practice squads.
