NFL.com news: Vickers says he'd fit into Browns' new offense if given chance: "Vickers fears his reputation as an explosive "knockout fullback," won by opening holes for Jamal Lewis in successive 1,000-yard seasons and paving Jerome Harrison's path to 561 yards in the final three games of 2009, has clouded respect for what he can do with the ball in his hands. Vickers played in a variation of the West Coast offense at Colorado, gaining more than 500 yards rushing and receiving in his college career. He has caught 41 passes with the Browns, 23 of them in two seasons (2007 and 2008) in former coordinator Rob Chudzinski's offensive scheme."
Vickers is another free agent fullback that could potentially be in play for the Seahawks. He's a West Coast Offense style fullback in that he's got the hands to catch passes out of the backfield and he has the size you hope for in a fullback.

Here’s every snap from his performance against North Carolina. Hosley had nine interceptions in 2010 and offers a real threat as a kick return specialist."
Judge makes court's case clear -- talk among yourselves - NFL - CBSSports.com Football: "Congratulating lawyers for their "exceptional" briefs and "well-represented" presentations, Judge Bye signed off by saying the court would render its decision "in due course" but "wouldn't be all that hurt if you go out and settle this case." Players union leader DeMaurice Smith will have to read between the line as the judge says he'd give a decision 'in due course.' (AP) That was not an instruction. But it was a hint, and the suggestion was clear: Find a way to settle this yourselves, guys, and try to make it quick. Because if you don't, the court will make its decision, and one of you won't like it."
Lockout means Supp. prospects may not slip - CBSSports.com: Rob Rang: "One of the points I tried to make to others writing stories on the "Ohio State five" and any other potential supplemental draft prospects is that historically players drafted in July have a tendency to slip further than their grades might indicate. Put simply, teams are hesitant to give up April draft picks for players selected in the Supplemental Draft. Often players would slip a round or two further down the board in July than where they would have been picked in April. Due to the lockout, however, this year's Supplemental Draft could be different, if NFL sources are to believed."

NFL.com Blogs " Blog Archive Carucci: Not sure Alex Smith will ever pan out ": "I also don’t buy that Alex Smith’s struggles have been mostly because of a poor offensive line and bad coaching. Those other factors haven’t helped, but he has had his share of opportunity to demonstrate whether he has the makings of a QB the caliber of Aaron Rodgers and he hasn’t shown it. And I’m not sure he ever will, regardless of what’s around him."
Will Hill, former St. Peter's Prep football star, arrested in Florida | NJ.com; Former St. Peter's Prep star Will Hill faces tough questions at NFL Combine | NJ.com: "Football star has drawn controversy throughout his young career." Will Hill is an UDFA safety out of Florida that has an intriguing combination of size and range at 6'1 210. Scouting reports indicate that he'd excel in the 'centerfield' type role as a safety and that's something that the Seahawks like to pair with Earl Thomas. He has good ball skills as well and known for hard hitting in run support. He's obviously got some issues that led him to go undrafted, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him invited to camp.
NFC West Blog - ESPN: "I spoke with Forsett and Williams on Friday. Forsett confirmed that Lynch has been in attendance. Williams was also in attendance and said he's hungry to prove he's more than just a guy with a nice comeback story.

We were both at California together. We stay pretty close and he was definitely always working hard.""
