Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Tuesday, July 30 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Wilson At No. 25
At last, our second Seahawks player to make it onto NFL Network’s countdown list—No better player than the fan-favorite Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. If you’re an avid reader of the Round-Up, I’m sure you caught last Tuesday’s article covering receiver Tyler Lockett making the same list at No. 98.
For the ninth year in a row, current players in the league have voted to determine the top 100 players in the NFL. The series on NFL Network counts down the top players in the League as determined solely by the players themselves.
Shown in the above video, a handful of players from around the League chimed in on Wilson’s incredible abilities as a quarterback. Dallas Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones said, “It’s a DB’s worst nightmare when you have a quarterback that can throw on a dime and also run out of the pocket and make a play on his feet. One thing that’s unique about him, he’s not looking just to run the ball, he’s actually looking for passes down the field.”
In that same vein, Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Leathrean is also impressed with the Super Bowl XLVIII champ’s versatility outside of the pocket. Leathrean stated, “You got to be able to contain him. [If] he gets out [of the pocket], you’re in trouble.”
Two of the soundbites in the video came from Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin and Legend Doug Baldwin. Having been on the receiving end of plenty of Wilson’s famous deep balls, when asked about the Seattle quarterback, Baldwin said, “He’s incredible. He’s a magician back there.”
Be sure to tune in to NFL Network tonight at 6:00 p.m. PT to see the next 10 players on the Network’s list.
