Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Thursday, July 27 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Pass Catchers To Watch
Another Seahawks player has been mentioned among this year's candidates for a break out 2017 campaign.
A few days after former running back and future Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson tabbed second-year player C.J. Prosise, NFL.com analyst and former Seahawks wide receiver Nate Burleson nominated wide out Paul Richardson.
Looking at youngsters poised to have a breakthrough campaign, Burleson believes that Richardson will be able to build off his strong end to 2016 in the coming months. Here's what he projects:
*2017 projection:800 yards and eight touchdowns. *
Richardson wowed us all with this one-handed snag in Seattle's wild-card bout with Detroit. When Tyler Lockett went down in Week 16, Richardson stepped up big time. After compiling just 288 receiving yards during the regular season, he added 131 more in two postseason contests. With Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and Lockett back in the mix, Richardson is going to reap the benefits when he's out on the field because defenses will game plan for the two or three receivers ahead of him. Not to mention, Russell Wilson is one of the best at creating something out of nothing. This offense is about to improve immensely from a year ago.
