Already fanshotted the fact that Leon Washington rejoined the team at the currently ongoing, last minicamp, but there's a few too many notes out there that are of interest. From Seahawks.com, Seattle PI and The News Tribune, with supplementary The News Tribune bits here.
On Leon Washington: He's back, doing non-contact individual drills (Seattle.com). Pete Carroll claims he'll be ready for the start of full camp (PI). TNT is impressed by how he's moving around, seemingly at full speed.
On Red Bryant: Red Bryant is working with the #1 Defense opposite Chris Clemons, Pete Carroll confirming he "has moved into a starting role at defensive end" (PI). Still not fully sure what to think of that, but it's very 3-4ish I guess.
On defensive starters: Kelly Jennings was a starting cornerback this time around, with Josh Wilson playing nickel. Hawthorne, Herring and Curry were the starting LBs with Lofa Tatupu injured, Leroy Hill still playing with the 2nd team (TNT).
Wide Receivers: TNT's supplementary bit reveals TJ Houshmandzadeh was playing hurt for the first few weeks last year (broken ribs) before his groin started bothering him. Wonder how well he'll return at his age. PI has a lot of PC quotes on WRs in general:
"Deon Butler has had a very good offseason for us and has improved immensely from where we saw him on film last year. Mike Williams has made an impact and the fact he's 6-4 and 240, we like what he brings," Carroll said.
"Golden has had a ton of reps and turns and he has a lot to learn, but he makes things happen and that's what the special guys do. They kind of remind you that they're special. And we have a lot of hope that he'll be a contributor.
"Ben Obomanu has been pretty flashy. So it's a young, emerging group without the experienced guys back and as we add them to it, it'll be very competitive. Let the games begin and let guys battle it out. There are some exciting guys out there."
Walter Thurmond III: has "begun doing some work with the team" (PI).
John Carlson: is awesome (Seattle.com).
