A morning link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks

Good morning, and here's what's "out there" for today, Tuesday, August 6, about your Seattle Seahawks:

Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter, who attended the first week of Seahawks training camp, says tough love has molded the club into a serious contender.

Trotter writes: "The commitment to accept nothing but each other’s best jumped out during my visiting to training camp last week. Other teams talk it, but the Seahawks practice it. To be more accurate, they demand it. Doesn’t matter if you’re a rookie or an All-Pro."

Doug Farrar of lists wide receiver Golden Tate as part of his All-Underrated offensive team.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times talks with linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. on Mike Morgan's development. Morgan has flashed at "Leo" and strong-side linebacker throughout training camp in the absence of pass rushers Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons.

Condotta also shares his Monday practice notes and the club's depth chart heading into Thursday night's game against the San Diego Chargers.
