Seahawks Free Agency Open Thread 8/2/11

A couple updates:

--Former Rams FB Mike Karney is reportedly set to visit Seattle, per the St Louis Post-Dispatch. Karney is 5'11, 260, 30 years old, and is a two-time Pro-Bowler (2006, 2007). He was second team All-Pro in 2006. This move would make sense, --he would be much cheaper than Vonta Leach but still has the veteran wiles and blocking skill they're looking for. He's a big human.

--Per eGriz.com and a good find by Seahawk_Talk, UDFA RB Chase Reynolds out of Montana has signed a free-agent contract with the Seahawks. Reynolds is 6'0, 195, and had a prolific career at Montana, as he ended up three measly yards short of being their all time rusher. I haven't seen official confirmation of this from the team, but here is a bit of background on Reynolds, again tip of the cap to Adam Wright of Seahawk_Talk. 

--Per SuperSchefter, veteran K Jeff Reed is in town to work out for the Seahawks. He had previously been with the Steelers for years and 49ers last season. If you google image search his name, you get a visual representation and confirmation of the rumors that he's a weird dude. Then again, Brian Wilson is a weird dude, and he does well on the field. So I'll withhold judgement.

--I'll be at Training Camp for the next few hours. Follow me on Twitter for some live updates.

Talk, discuss, converse, have fun with it. Open thread time.
