A recap of the activities at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for Sept. 2, when the Seahawks spent their Labor Day getting in a bonus practice for Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Panthers inCarolina:

YOUDON’T SAY

“Very difficult. We had a lot of tough decisions, and Mike was one of them. … Mike was a very instrumental guy on this football team.”

Pete Carroll, on terminating the contract of veteran fullback Michael Robinson

Coach Pete Carroll had expressed several times during the offseason how difficult it would be for new players to make the already deep squad. But there are 17 players who were not on the 53-man roster last season: defensive end Cliff Avril, tackle Alvin Bailey, defensive end Michael Bennett, tackle Michael Bowie, fullback Derrick Coleman, defensive tackle Jordan Hill, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, linebacker John Lotulelei, defensive tackle Tony McDaniel, defensive end Benson Mayowa, running back Christine Michael, tackle Mike Person, defensive end O’Brien Schofield, defensive tackle D’Anthony Smith, fullback Spencer Ware, wide receiver Stephen Williams and tight end Luke Willson.

“It’s exciting that we were able to find guys that could upgrade and take spots,” Carroll said after the team’s “Bonus Monday” practice. “It’s more indicative of the guys that aren’t here that went to other places to demonstrate how competitive it was.”

That group of those released on Saturday who hooked on with other teams includes rookie wide receiver Chris Harper, who was signed by the San Francisco 49ers on Monday; safety Winston Guy, who was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars; defensive tackle Jaye Howard, tight end Sean McGrath and cornerback Ron Parker, who were claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs; and quarterback Brady Quinn, who was signed by the New York Jets on Monday.

“We’re all about what we say – competing – and those guys earned their way,” Carroll said of the new players on the roster. “They earned their spot and they battled through it. So that makes this tougher and hopefully it makes us a little better.”
