Tuesday Round-Up: Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, 12s in Top 10 of NFL jersey sales
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, July 22 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Seahawks Well Represented In Top NFL Jersey Sales
Quarterback Johnny Manziel is the top-selling jersey at NFLShop.com from April 1 to July 17, but several Seahawks sit closely behind the Cleveland Browns rookie.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson ranks at No. 2, cornerback Richard Sherman at No. 5, and the 12th "Fan" jersey comes in at No. 10. With running back Marshawn Lynch at No. 11 and free safety Earl Thomas at No. 20, Seahawks jerseys make up one quarter of the jerseys in the Top 20.

Russell Wilson No. 9 On Ron Jaworski's QB Big Board
On Wilson, Jaworski writes: "Wilson may not wow most observers with exceptional arm talent, but he is careful with where he distributes the football and simply knows how to win football games. The Seahawks do a great job of managing his game with designed movement, read-option and half-field reads off play-action. Wilson is probably the best in the league off structured improvisation. One thing I see on film is that he does sometimes struggle to see people, as is the case with shorter quarterbacks. He has improved on this but needs to get better at manipulating the pocket and seeing those throwing lanes.”

Seahawks single-game tickets went on-sale at 10 a.m. yesterday and by 1:50 p.m. the entire stadium had sold out for the 2014 regular season.

Madden NFL 15 Reveals Player Rankings
Madden NFL 15 is starting to roll out its player ratings for this year's game, which you can stay up to date on right here.
This morning, the game unveiled its Top 5 highest-rated quarterbacks, and the Seahawks' Russell Wilson comes in tied for fourth alongside New England Patriots QB Tom Brady with a 93 overall rating. Peyton Manning (98 overall), Aaron Rodgers (98), and Drew Brees (96) rank ahead of Wilson.
Madden writes: "Being 5’11” doesn’t hurt Russell Wilson one bit in the Madden NFL 15 ratings. He is the ultimate dual threat with his 86 SPD (ranked eighth in NFL for QBs), 90 AGI (seventh), 92 ACC (second), and 93 Throw Power. Don’t be afraid to throw it deep (89 Deep Accuracy, ranked third) and on the run (fifth) with Wilson as well, he can do it all."
