Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, April 22 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
From Silver and Black to Blue and Green
The Seahawks acquired quarterback
On Pryor, a running quarterback with exceptional speed who measures at 6-foot-4 and 230-plus pounds, general manager John Schneider said, "Terrelle is an incredibly explosive athlete and we’re excited for him to come in and compete."
Terry Blount of ESPN.com says the trade for Pryor was worth it for Seattle, "This is what the Seahawks do, bring in talented athletes and find a place for them where they can help the team and excel as individuals. Maybe that's still at quarterback for Pryor, maybe it's elsewhere. For Seattle, it certainly is worth the cost of a seventh-round pick."
Doug Farrar of SI.com weighs in on the Seahawks' latest addition, passing along comments from Pryor after the Raiders' preseason game against the Seahawks last season.
Back To Work
Several Seahawks players returned to Virginia Mason Athletic Center yesterday as Phase One of the team's voluntary offseason workout program officially got underway.
“We had a good staging (last season)," Carroll told Farnsworth of his club's return to work. "It was a step toward this, because we had a lot of expectations going into the year. And, of course, we’ll have all of that again. So we just want to take it very normally and really deal with it by working really hard – just by going about recapturing the work ethic that makes us and has been so important to us.”

Terry Blount of ESPN.com says the Seahawks - who were already one of the youngest teams in the NFL after winning Super Bowl XLVIII - keep getting younger. Twelve (12) players with an average age of 28.4 who were on the roster at the end of last season are gone and nine (9) new players with an average age of 25.7 have been acquired via free agency or trade. Blount makes note Seattle has just three players on the roster who are over the age of 30 - quarterback Tarvaris Jackson (31), linebacker
