The Seattle Seahawks have shared a new batch of training camp clips to get you hyped for what’s to come this season. A couple of videos feature Russell Wilson in fine form in Monday’s “Mock Game.”
First up is Wilson throwing a touchdown to Jermaine Kearse, lofting the ball over linebacker Kache Palacio, with rookie safety Tedric Thompson also in the picture.
If you loved Wilson’s critical fourth-quarter connection to C.J. Prosise in last year’s win over New England, this play should bring back some memories.
I know this video is titled as being a one-handed catch by Luke Willson, but it’s realistically him keeping the play alive with one hand and then gathering the ball in with both hands. Willson is Canadian, so the exchange rate currently means this counts as 1.27 catches.
Up next is former Washington Huskies star Kasen Williams, who made a nice diving catch on this Wilson throw. Demetrius McCray was in coverage.
Let’s switch things up and go to the defensive side of the ball. With Malik McDowell out indefinitely, it’s very important for other defensive tackles on the roster to make their mark, and Garrison Smith knifed through Seattle’s backup OL and tackled Alex Collins in the end zone for a safety.
Fourth-year defensive end and special teams contributor Cassius Marsh recorded a “sack” of Austin Davis, who is vying for the backup job.
Lastly, check out the hands of exciting rookie CB Shaquill Griffin in Wednesday’s training camp drills.
Why #Seahawks are lovin' them some Shaquill Griffin as starting RCB so far: not just size, speed, but the hands. @thenewstribune pic.twitter.com/ldblQYOJ4r— Gregg Bell (@gbellseattle) August 9, 2017
Seattle will play its first preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, August 13th at 5 PM PT on Q13 FOX. It’ll also air live on NFL Network for those who live outside the Seahawks’ broadcasting markets.
