Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today – Monday, August 29 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks Legend K.J. Wright Impressed With Rookie CB Tariq Woolen
Seattle Seahawks rookie cornerback Tariq Woolen is out to prove that he's more than just speed as he continues to adapt to life as a cornerback. While being a rookie may be challenging, Woolen has a major supporter in Seahawks LegendK.J. Wright. The recent-retiree sat down with Seattle Sports 710AM’s Bump and Stacy show to discuss why Woolen is his 'favorite' rookie.
Seahawks LegendK.J. Wright re-signed with the Seahawks to retire in front of family, friends and teammates at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center. Never a stranger to the building, Wright first observed Woolen at Seahawks OTAs.
"When I saw this guy in OTAs, I was like, 'Who is this guy making these plays, getting these interceptions?' Tall and fast," said Wright. "Oh my God, he made a phenomenal play in OTA's, and you see him now, he's comfortable, his technique looks really good, he has the speed."
Woolen's 4.26 40-yard-dash at the 2022 NFL Combine was the fourth-fastest time in event history.
Woolen has been tested throughout, from teammate DK Metcalf, to opposing wideouts throughout the preseason - but Woolen has shined.
Wright showed just how high he was on Woolen during the 'Four Down Territory' segment of the show. When asked to predict starters for the defense, Wright spoke up for Woolen.
"I fully expect him to start week one at corner, he looks very, very good," said Wright. "He's been my favorite since day one, I like him."
