The Seattle Seahawks opened OTAs on Tuesday, and the official team YouTube page posted a video about it. So that’s a nice thing about “the current” which years ago was referred to as “the future.” In the video, Justin Britt and Paul Richardson talk about their experiences of starting out the 2017 season, as it were.
The video is not embeddable at the moment because the NFL is still figuring out how sharing works to their benefit. I guess they are still trying to catch up with the NBA. You can watch the video by clicking here instead.
Britt notes that this is the first time he’s been this excited to be back for the Seahawks in the offseason, probably due to the fact that he’s finally locked into a position, with the cherry-top being that fans consider him to be the only decent offensive lineman.
The offense has been working together in California to gel and get to know each other better, says Richardson.
The biggest story of Seattle’s OTAs is the absence of cornerback Richard Sherman, currently embroiled in trade talks. This round of OTAs is voluntary, but former Seahawks quarterback Brock Huard is none too pleased with Sherman’s decision to skip — along with several other veterans.
