Practice and pressers: What we learned on training camp day 4

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

For the final time before padded practices begin on Monday, the Seattle Seahawks had a light on-field practice Sunday in helmets and shells. Though information is more limited this year, there’s still bits and pieces that will help to shape ideas surrounding the team ahead of the 2020 season. Here’s what we learned on Sunday, including a brief media session from Marquise Blair prior to practice.

Blair told reporters that his reps at nickel to begin camp are the first he’s ever taken at the position.

Despite that, Blair spoke confidently of his ability to play in the slot.

Quinton Dunbar took to the field for the first time as a member of the Seahawks.

After missing the first few days of on-field work due to a personal matter, Chris Carson was back in Seattle and with the team on Sunday.

The Seahawks’ two starting defensive tackles, Jarran Reed and Poona Ford, sat out on Sunday. Both suffered injuries on Friday, with Reed exiting practice because of it and Ford finishing the day.

Unsurprisingly, Dunbar received special attention from Pete Carroll, as the team attempts to get their new cornerback up to speed.

K.J. Wright, who sat out on Friday, was back on Sunday and running with the first team defense again.

In 7-on-7s, however, it was again Jordyn Brooks getting snaps with the first unit.

With Duane Brown getting some rest, it was Cedric Ogbuehi in at left tackle with the starters.

David Moore was also sitting out on Sunday, for unknown reasons.

In Moore’s place was sophomore Cody Thompson, who earned positive reviews during the short on-field work last week, as well.

Seattle also worked out a free agent on Sunday, bringing in defensive tackle P.J. Johnson for a visit. With Reed and Ford carrying injuries, an addition at the position would be logical. Cedrick Lattimore, Bryan Mone, and Demarcus Christmas are the other defensive tackles currently on the roster.
