Seahawks begin three day passing camp.

Off-season additions Cornerback Bobby Taylor and Defensive End Grant Wistrom were among a group of Seahawk players who participated in the team's non-mandatory passing camp. The team spent the first day working on techniques, routes, coverage and blocking. After an hour of the basics, the players had a 7 on 7 passing drill, broke for lunch, lifted weights, and then attended group meetings.


Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren liked what he says "I was very pleased with the shape most of them appear to be in. They have worked a little bit, even though the official start of the off-season program is today. We were able to practice and do some good things. It was a good start.

 As for the overall goal of the three day camp, Holmgren is looking for the players and organization to gel." As much as anything it's getting the guys back in together, getting them to start thinking about football again Bill Laveroni, having the offensive line for the first time. The linemen are not looking at Tom (former coach Lovat) and Bill. They're looking at Bill and he's the guy. Things like that. Grant (Wistrom) and Bobby (Taylor), the new guys on the block, to be a part of the family so to speak, and getting used to how we do things. The football part of it we're easing into it. We practice once a day, you see what we do out there. We're kind of getting them back into thinking about it a little bit."

 Holmgren says' he is looking for leadership from the newly acquired veterans." They're good guys, both of them, they're pros and they've been on successful teams and I'm hoping for that kind of leadership. They're both quite different guys though. Grant's kind of more demonstrative, Bobby's kind of quiet, but they both bring their style of leadership and that will help our defense."
