NFL: Seattle Seahawks-Training Camp Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks practiced again on Friday and it was perhaps the most interesting day of training camp thus far.

  • We found out that FB Brandon Cottom did in fact tear his Achilles and will miss the season. Cottom was in my most recent projection for the 53-man roster, so that leaves an opening (for me) to replace him with someone else, but will it even be a fullback or will Pete Carroll opt to not use a true FB to start the year?
  • Potential future Hall of Fame guard Jahri Evans visited with the team on Friday. No update on if he will sign or not as of this posting. But Carroll did start to shuffle around the offensive line on Friday anyway.
  • J’Marcus Webb, once projected as the starting right tackle, was seen working with the third-string at times on Friday, but also was back with the first string later in the day.
  • Rookie third round pick Rees Odhiambo worked at right tackle with the first team at one point. It’s a good sign that Odhiambo is doing enough to at least get a look with the first unit.
  • While Odhiambo was at right tackle, George Fant was at left tackle. Fant is a huge project, a former college basketball player with a big 6’6 frame, but could he really be ready to help out the offensive line so soon?
  • Joey Hunt moved his way to the second team at center while Patrick Lewis was working with the third string. This could just mean Carroll wants to see different combinations of players at different levels, or it could mean bad news for Lewis. It’s too soon to tell and not worth speculating much until the first round of cuts happens.
  • Kristjan Sokoli was working with the second team at left guard at one point. Will Pericak was at right guard on that unit, while Terry Poole was at right tackle.
  • I commented on Twitter yesterday that it was good that least the first team unit was together from day one and had a lot of time to gel this month before Week 1 if all worked out — so much for that stupid tweet.
  • Poole also worked his way up to first team right tackle.
  • Frank Clark was back at practice after taking a few days off to rest a sore calf.
  • The job at SAM linebacker continues to be up for grabs with a constant day-to-day shuffle. On Friday, Eric Pinkins was with the first team at SAM and progress reports seemed to be very positive. DeShawn Shead was with the first team at RCB.
  • Kam Chancellor was out with a “groin thing” per Carroll. David Perkins and Pete Robertson, two guys buried deeper on the depth chart, were also out. Doug Baldwin was running on the sidelines but also out.
  • Then there was this:
