Offseason program, then the President
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.
The Seahawks flew to Washington, D.C., on Tuesday for Wednesday’s ceremony at the White House where the Super Bowl champions will be honored by President Barack Obama.
But first, and foremost for some, the players went through their drills at Virginia Mason Athletic Center in the final week of Phase 2 in their offseason program. And they’ll be back at Thursday morning, when the players will have meetings and a team run.
“I haven’t even thought about it, to be honest with you,” wide receiver Doug Baldwin said Monday when asked about the White House visit. “I’ve just been so focused on everything that’s going on here. Really, when we talked about it (in a team meeting) I was surprised, because I forgot about it.
“To be honest with you, I’m ready to get back to work. The Super Bowl is over with. I’m ready to get back to work.”
The offseason program through the first two phases has consisted of conditioning, meetings and offense-only and defense-only drills on the practice fields.
The OTA sessions will continue with three practices the week of June 2 and four practices the week of June 9, and those will be followed by the full-squad minicamp that is scheduled for June 17-19.
But first, there is that trip to the White House to be honored by the President.
“It is cool,” Baldwin said. “But I really don’t know how cool it will be until we actually get there.”
