Happy Birthday Doug Baldwin
The Seahawks have traveled to San Diego to take on the Chargers in their third preseason game of the year, a game that will see the starters get the most playing time of the preseason.
NFL Media's Elliot Harrison ranks the best 50 players to draft in upcoming fantasy football drafts.
It was family day here at the VMAC as the Seahawks had their last practice of the week before heading to San Diego tomorrow for a preaseon matchup against the Chargers on Saturday.
"Turnover Thursday" was the motto for Wednesdays practice of preseason week 3 in preparation for the San Diego Chargers.
Saturday is Baldwin’s 25th birthday. So Sidney, what would you get Baldwin – if cost and situation were no object?
“What would I get him?” Rice said. “I would get him something to keep him in line, because he’s out of hand sometimes.”
Rice couldn’t hold back a smile as he said that, and then added, “That’s a good question. Doug’s a different guy, so I’m going to have to do my research here pretty soon and figure out what to get him. He’s a good guy.”
Soft-spoken off the field, Baldwin’s competitive spirit – or the chip on his shoulder, as he calls it – erupts once he’s on the field. In 2011, Baldwin became the first rookie free agent to lead his team in receptions and receiving yards since Bill Groman of the Houston Oilers in 1960. This season, the 5-foot-10, 189-pound Baldwin has a team-high eight receptions in the Seahawks’ first two games.
Rice laughed before offering, “He’s probably the most aggressive little person I’ve ever met in my life. But I love him to death and I’m glad he’s on my team.”
