Coffee and Cigarettes: Seahawks links for Saturday


Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Aloha! Today we will continue to look at the draft and players the Seahawks will likely look to in an effort to bolster the roster. Chris Clemons resigned with the team, and while many are touting him as more of a camp body, I am actually very excited about the move. While he may not stick, and even if he does may not have a huge impact on the field, his locker room presence is something the team has missed. If any of you were followers of the Real Rob Report, you may remember one episode in particular that had rookies "freestyling" (read: rapping previously written lyrics) for the camera. Rookie RB Christine Michael mentioned cannabis in his, which prompted Old Man Clemons to come in and stop the whole thing, calling them stupid and that they should know better. I have no net opinion on Marijuana, but as an NFL player, it is highly unintelligent and irresponsible to mention that kind of activity in a video recording headed for YouTube. While the team may not benefit much from a 34 year old pass rusher in the twilight of his career, the locker room sure will. Excited to have a locker room enforcer who the players respect back in the fold. Hope everyone has an amazing day!
