Round-Up by Bing

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, July 25 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Q13 FOX To Carry Today's Training Camp Live

Their coverage already started at 6 a.m., but Q13 FOX is providing a live look-in at the first of 12 open training camp practices at Seahawks headquarters. Today's practice session kicks off at 10 a.m., when the station will feature live footage, player interviews, and share reactions with fans for the first hour of camp at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

Sports Director Aaron Levine will lead the day's events which can also be found live at Q13FOX.com and right here at Seahawks.com.

Seahawks Pro Shop Opens At The Landing

A brand new Seahawks Pro Shop opened at The Landing in Renton last night, and Seahawks.com's Clare Farnsworth was on site for the ribbon-cutting ceremony with former Seahawks safety Lawyer Milloy and Seattle Sounders FC midfielder Brad Evans. Be sure to stop by the new store on your way to training camp practices over the next few weeks for all of your 2014 Seahawks needs.

WR Morrell Presley Signed

One day following the retirement of veteran wideout Sidney Rice, the Seahawks signed rookie wide receiver Morrell Presley, who worked out on a tryout basis as a tight end during the team's rookie minicamp after spending time at California (Pa.) University and UCLA.

The Seahawks also announced the release of tight end Chase Dixon, who was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2014 draft, and waived/injured offensive lineman Jared Smith, a 2013 seventh-round draft choice by Seattle.

SI.com Names Richard Sherman NFL's Top Corner

Doug Farrar of SI.com ranks the Top 10 cornerbacks in the NFL, and Seattle cover man Richard Sherman ranks No. 1 on his list.

On Sherman, who is listed ahead of Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson (No. 2) and New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis (No. 3), Farrar writes, "In the postseason, Sherman was even more impressive, and this was really the tiebreaker. It's unfortunate that Peterson's Cardinals didn't get to see what they could do in the playoffs with their 10-6 record, but Sherman was absolutely ridiculous in the Seahawks' final romp to the Super Bowl -- he was targeted just seven times on 117 passing snaps, allowing just two receptions for 10 yards. And when Peyton Manning, of all people, started overthrowing deep passes to avoid Sherman late in the Super Bowl as the Broncos fell further and further behind, that said all that needed to be said. Richard Sherman is just as good as he says he is."

Tweet of the Day 

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from head coach Pete Carroll, who can't wait to see you out at team headquarters for training camp.
