Friday Round-Up: Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson Trains With Pittsburgh Steelers Wide Receiver Antonio Brown

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about the Seattle Seahawks.

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, June 24 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Brown: Wilson "Has A Cannon"

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown were both recently on the set of NBC's Sunday Night Football open shoot in Los Angeles, so it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to learn that the pair found time to train together while in Southern California.

The two Pro Bowlers recently worked out at UCLA's campus, where Wilson tossed passes to Brown as he went against Bruins defensive backs. The players documented their time together on social media, with Wilson running a Facebook live account of what went down.

"Good workout with @dangerusswilson down at @ucla," Brown captioned in a photo with Wilson on Instagram. "This guy has a cannon."

"Loved getting to learn from one of the best today," Wilson added in a photo of his own.

You can check out footage of the full workout over at Wilson's Facebook page.

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from rookie offensive lineman Rees Odhiambo, who alongside fellow first-year O-lineman Germain Ifedi will hit the road to Spokane with the Seahawks 12 Tour this morning.

And Field Yates at ESPN.com ranks two Seahawks position groups among the Top 10 in the NFL on the defensive side of the football (Insider), putting Seattle's secondary at No. 2 and its defensive line at No. 9, writing:

2. Seattle Seahawks secondary: This is a group so good that it has earned a nickname: The Legion of Boom remains one of the best units in football. Safety Earl Thomas has the best range of any center-field defender in the league, and he is complemented ideally by Kam Chancellor, a soul-crushing hitter who would be mistaken for a defensive end if he didn't wear No. 31. Cornerback Richard Sherman is physical at the line of scrimmage, has excellent instincts and is like a Venus flytrap when a ball comes his way. The team has perpetually found an answer at cornerback opposite of Sherman without losing any production.

9. Seattle Seahawks defensive line: There's so much about this group that stands out: It's talented, explosive, big and deep. Defensive end Michael Bennett can be a terror from any position, while Cliff Avril is a long and flexible rusher. Ahtyba Rubin was exceptional last season after signing a one-year deal, plugging holes as a standout run defender. He earned an extension. After losing Brandon Mebane in free agency, the Seahawks nabbed Jarran Reed in the second round of the draft. Jim Nagy, a well-respected NFL evaluator who scouts the Southeast region for Seattle, lauded Reed's run-stuffing skills following the draft. Veteran Chris Clemons and second-year player Frank Clark are also in the Seahawks' rotation.
