Sunday Round-Up: What we learned from Day Two of Seahawks Training Camp

Posted Jul 27, 2014

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

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Sunday, July 27 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Earl Thomas, Russell Wilson Looking To Be Legendary

Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas and quarterback Russell Wilson spoke with the media following day two of training camp at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center yesterday, and the two told reporters about how their relationship has blossomed on and off the field.

“I think that Earl and I’s connection is really, really good right now,” said Wilson. “We’re trying to make sure that we hang out off the field, always talk about football, talk about life, talk about trying to be legendary in some way. I really feel like you feed off one another. We both want to be great players, we want to be great human beings, we want to be great leaders. So I think to be around each other is a really good thing.”

Thomas, who at 25 years old is the same age as Wilson despite entering the NFL two years before the Seahawks quarterback, said he and Wilson compete each day to see who can stay at team headquarters the longest. Thomas says he's seen Wilson continue to find ways to up his already impressive game.

"He’s a different guy,” Thomas said of Wilson's jump from year two to year three in the League. “He’s more in control. He’s giving me a hard time, kind of looking me off. Sometimes I think he holds it a little longer because no pass rush is coming.

“But he’s on the right track. He’s a great leader. He watches film, just like I watch film.”

S Steven Terrell, LB Brandon Denmark Added

The Seahawks made a couple more roster moves on the second day of camp, releasing defensive tackle Dewayne Cherrington and signing second-year safety Steven Terrell and rookie linebacker Brandon Denmark.

Terrell (out of Texas A&M) and Denmark (out of Florida A&M) provide depth at a pair of positions that have players sidelined, with linebackers Malcolm Smith (foot), Bruce Irvin (hip), Korey Toomer (hamstring), and strong safety Kam Chancellor (hip) sitting out practice, or recovering from offseason surgeries.
