Happy Tuesday to ya, you guys.

Training Camp Buzz: Terrell Owens' last best chance -
We have no idea whether Owens will get signed by the Seattle Seahawks, but he's not going to get a better chance to make an impact in the NFL again. Carroll isn't afraid to take chances. And he's clearly not happy with his split end position. There is an opportunity to start. Otherwise, why bother with a player like Owens who won't help on special teams?

Best shot at playoffs: Titans, Cardinals, Seahawks or Dolphins? -
The Tennessee Titans have enough offensive talent and play in a weak division. The Arizona Cardinals have an improved, younger defense. The Seattle Seahawks are my choice, though, because they have a more improved, more talented young defense. Pete Carroll's team, like division foe San Francisco, was greater than the sum of its parts by the end of last year. With a little help from Matt Flynn, the Seahawks can win the NFC West.

All part of the plan, said coach Pete Carroll. And while no one has been named starting quarterback, Jackson's role in Sunday's simulated game spoke for itself. "He's working with the first unit," Carroll said. "I can't make it any more obvious than that."

• Terrell Eldorado Owens works out for the Seahawks today. He's 38, he hasn't played in the league since 2010, he's apparently blown his football fortune, and today just might be last call at the T.O. Saloon. Seattle's giving him a look -- nothing more, at least for now -- because the Seahawks have heard he has been humbled and is in great shape.

Seattle Seahawks will give Terrell Owens a chance to return to the NFL | Shutdown Corner - Yahoo! Sports
Terrell Eldorado Owens last caught an NFL pass on December 12, 2010. He did so for the Cincinnati Bengals against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a 22-7 loss. It was a22-yarder against one of the NFL's best defenses, and some 37-year-old receivers would consider tha a good way to go out. Not T.O., though -- after rehabbing a knee injury and entering into a contentious relationship with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, Owens finally has the shot he's been waiting for.

17 Power, A Seattle Seahawks Blog: Why Seattle's QB Competition is Really, Truly, Honestly, Completely Open
What I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall of Pete Carroll's cranial cavity. I know, ewww, but it'd be nice to get some clarity amidst our bias and preconception. We've all got the quarterback candidates pigeonholed pretty well for ourselves by now. Tarvaris Jackson represents strength, toughness, experience, and incumbency. Matt Flynn represents the poise, mental acuity, technical skill, and the "Rodgers Factor" of developing over time. And Russell Wilson represents the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild. It's not surprising to see the fan base divided so sharply into camps depending on what they value.

Charlie Peprah S 6 Peprah is a veteran safety with a nose for the football (5 INTs in 2011 with Green Bay). He's versatile to swing between both S positions and would provide a veteran rotational S presence who can come up in the box or cover deep. Winston Guy is known more as a pure in-the-box safety and doesn't have ideal fluidity to provide coverage, and Peprah would be an upgrade over a Chris Maragos, DeShawn Shead or Jeron Johnson, from a pure skilled Safety perspective.

Golden Tate. The coaches are waiting for one of the wide receivers to step up as the replacement for recently released Mike Williams opposite Sidney Rice, and Tate is stating his case with his actions. "The guy I’m really excited about is Golden," Carroll said of the team’s second-round choice from last year’s draft. "Those of us that have watched him for three years, his quickness and his control in and out of his breaks is by far the best it has been. "I don’t know what happened in the offseason, but he’s just lighter on his feet and quicker than he has been. We’re thrilled about how he’s coming along."

"The T.O. of the past is going to be still thinking he's a No. 1 or No. 2, and at best, you can see from how he performed in the indoor league, he was more of a No. 3 or No. 4," Clayton told "Brock and Salk" on Monday. "So I guess if you want to tear the locker room apart, you can bring T.O. in."

Dan Williams, DT, Arizona Cardinals Career analysis: Williams came into the NFL as a tremendous athlete for a 320-plus pound lineman with the talent to be an impact player. Since being selected No. 26 overall in 2010, Williams struggled to keep his weight under control. He didn't start as a rookie and was inconsistent last season after winning a spot on the defensive line. Williams was not a great college player and was viewed as an underachiever at Tennessee, so his struggles in the NFL aren't a surprise.
