K.J. Wright On Sports Radio KJR

Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright joined Dave "Softy" Mahler on Sports Radio KJR Wednesday and described missing the playoffs, the hiring of Ken Norton Jr. as defensive coordinator and more. Here are a few highlights from his appearance:

On not being in the playoffs for the first time since his rookie season:

"We're definitely in unfamiliar territory. My body feels like it should still be going right now, I feel like I should be waking up early in the morning to gameplan for a team. But we definitely came up short this year, it's very disappointing but I know these guys in the building we'll be just fine. We're going to bounce back and make it next year hopefully."

On the familiarity of having Ken Norton Jr. returning to the coaching staff:

"When they told me it was coach Norton, I was just very happy, very relieved, because he's a guy that knows (the system). He coached at USC with coach Carroll, won Super Bowls in the NFL (as a player) and with us. So he's going to be just fine, he's the type of guy that can not only impact the defense but the entire team because he's that great of a guy and that influential. When he gets in here I believe you'll see a big turnaround with the whole team."

You can listen to Wright's full interview here (it begins around the 12:30 mark).
