Dexter Davis could be a very underrated factor heading into this season.

If he can stay healthy. He was IR'd both years wasnt' he? Don't remember the nature of his injury. Hopefully it's completely healed & he will be a force this year.

just another piece of a defense that is now stacked with pass rush potential. I'm telling you, if givien the time and opportunity this will be the best regime the seahawks have ever been under. They are trying to build a monster and experimenting with things that haven't been tried before

I can't believe we are just 2 years removed from the ruskell era, what a horrible time to be a fan

Dexter davis is kind of like the golden tate(outside of draft status) of our defense, he will succeed if he realizes his potential...he just needs to put it together

Barrett Ruud is fully recovered from a variety of lingering injuries, we hear Ruud could also see considerable action at middle linebacker

They'll sneak in here to try to get on the JUGS machine in the indoor practice facility at night. They're just driven that way. I think that's why we're so excited about this group."


This gets me so pumped...

Deuce Lutui, the team's new guard with longstanding weight issues, has indeed embraced a vegan diet as part of a renewed effort to improve his health and performance.

"The commitment that he made to himself and his family revolved around not only being the best player," agent Ken Harris said Monday, "but being with them for many years to come and not having to worry as much about weight-related issues that can cause down-the-line health concerns."


Good for Deuce. Even if he doesn't play a down for us this is always good to hear.

Turns out Lutui's vegan diet is actually a joke, according to his agent. Sources have said that he has lost weight, however.

You sure about that? Here's a quote from his agent Ken Harris on Monday.

Quote:
"Some things happened last year and in the last year and a half," Harris said. "He wanted to commit to himself and to his family that he would do everything to take care of himself and take care of them and be the best player he could be. As part of that, he met a nutritionist who suggested a vegan diet to him."

You’ve probably also heard the skepticism that statement created. As in, “Really, a 340-pound vegan?” Mike Sando at ESPN.com was among those not biting.

“I followed up with Carroll twice in an effort to make sure the coach wasn’t joking,” Sando wrote on his NFC West blog. “He stuck with his story, but conceivably could have been kidding.”

Carroll was not kidding. How do we know? We went to the source today and got the word from Lutui’s vegan-consuming mouth.

“It’s true,” said Lutui, a veteran offensive lineman who signed with the Seahawks in free agency last month. “And coming into the offseason, this is the best shape I’ve ever been in. I credit that vegan diet.”

http://bleacherreport.com/tb/bgDKk?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=seattle-seahawks

On seattle's receivers. I think Sidney Rice, Mike Williams, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate, Ben Obomanu, Ricardo Lockette make the roster. Durham and Bates hit the PS, and i think everyone else gets cut(deon can''t hit the PS and i Think Tunei gets cut week 3 of exhibition).



Quote:
Tarvaris Jackson and Matt Flynn, who are competing to be the Seahawks’ starting quarterback, have played with Pro Bowl wide receivers.
For Jackson, who was signed in free agency last year, it was while with the Vikings and he was throwing to Percy Harvin and also current teammate Sidney Rice. For Flynn, who was signed in free agency this year, it was while with the Packers and he was throwing to Donald Driver and Greg Jennings.
The Seahawks, meanwhile, have not had a Pro Bowl wide receiver since Brian Blades in 1989 – and Blades was only the second wide-out in franchise history to make it to Hawaii, joining seven-time selection Steve Largent.
A SHOW OF HANDS
The Seahawks have three wide receivers on their roster who have more than 80 career receptions and 1,000 career receiving yards in the NFL, but two were sideline spectators during Tuesday’s offseason program workout – Sidney Rice and Mike Williams, the incumbent starters. Here’s a look at each receiver’s career numbers:

But today, after another offseason program workout that was held in warm, sunny conditions and on the manicured outside practice fields at Virginia Mason Athletic Center, Jackson said he liked the team’s current group of wide receivers. It’s an eclectic mix that includes Rice and Mike Williams, the on-the-mend incumbent starters; Doug Baldwin, who led the team in receiving as a rookie last season and has switched to his college number (89) so Flynn could have No. 15; veteran Ben Obomanu, who GM John Schneider recently called “one of the more underrated receivers in the league”; and the promising quartet of Golden Tate, Deon Butler, Ricardo Lockette and Kris Durham.
“That’s what makes those guys work harder, because they know they’re unproven and they’re trying to prove themselves,” Jackson said. “When you’ve got guys that are hungry like that, and willing to work, that makes things a lot better.”
In fact, Obomanu, Baldwin and Lockette were so hungry during the players’ extended break following the season that they traveled to Alabama to workout with Jackson.
“It’s like a friendly competition – every guy in the receiving corps wants the ball,” Jackson said. “So they see one guy working hard, and they don’t want to get outworked because they know it pays off in the end because quarterbacks really like that.
“As you get more familiar with the quarterback, you become a guy a quarterback can trust and that gets more balls thrown your way.”
Jackson already had that trust with Rice, who also was signed in free agency last year and caught 32 passes before shoulder injuries that required surgery and lingering concussion symptoms forced him to go on injured reserve after playing in only nine games. Jackson developed that trust with Baldwin, who led the team in receptions (51), receiving yards (788) and TD catches (four) after being signed as an undrafted free agent.
Flynn is in the process of building that trust factor after joining the team 7½ weeks ago.
But Jackson isn’t the only one who’s high on the Seahawks’ wide-outs that are either rehabbing or mostly unproven. The club passed on selecting a wide receiver in the draft, because the group was “pretty average,” as Schneider put it. Instead, the passing game will move forward with what Schneider calls “some really cool, young guys that are exciting and with different attributes.”
Added Schneider, “I like it because it’s a really unique group. You’ve got size. You’ve got instant separation. And you’ve got guys that can get down the field a little bit.”

Yea, your prediction is probably the same I would give. I wouldn't count Durham out for a #7 spot though.
