Notes and quotes from Day 3 of Seahawks training camp | - Seattle Sidelines
It didn’t take long for the first padded practice of training camp to get popping, so to speak. Early in running drills, rookie fullback/fire hydrant Kiero Small put a thumping block on fellow rookie Kevin Pierre-Louis. Not long after, Cassius Marsh, who has been very impressive so far, had a welcome-to-the-NFL moment when guard James Carpenter caught Marsh off balance and launched the rookie backwards in the air. The first week of camp is a long ways away from a game, but it was just another example of why the Seahawks have high hopes for a slimmed down Carpenter, who has looked very good in offseason workouts and now the start of camp.
