More than 2,500 fans came out for the first day of the Seahawks' 2016 training camp at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
Seahawks players reported to Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Friday to prepare for the start of the team's 2016 training camp, which opens Saturday, July 30 with the first of 13 practices open to the public.
For the second consecutive season, tight end Anthony McCoy has been placed on injured reserve.
The fifth-year Seahawks tight end, who missed the 2013 season with a torn Achilles tendon, suffered an injury to his other Achilles during Tuesday's training camp practice at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
