Camp Opens

It's the end of July. The temperatures on the Cheney, Washington campus of Eastern Washington University are pushing the mid-90's and the sun overhead is beating down mercilessly with UV rays, but no matter – it's football season. Thursday July 28th marked the first, albeit light, workout for the Seahawks as the 2005 season his finally gotten underway.

CB Marcus Trufant was the only starter to participate with a plethora of undrafted free agent rookies and draft choices. The workout lasted 45-minutes and was merely a chance for players to get loose and to work out some kinks in the body.

The Hawks' last two unsigned rookies, first-round selection Chris Spencer and second-round selection Lofa Tatupu, still have not agreed to terms but no one is expecting them to miss much time at all. The Hawks begin two-a-days tomorrow and they expect to see every veteran except one on the field tomorrow.

The only veteran not in camp? RB Shaun Alexander, who just signed a new one-year $6.3 million contract, is in Seattle with his wife who just gave birth to their second daughter, Trinity, Thursday evening. Alexander will most likely head east over the weekend and be at practice soon thereafter.

Stay tuned to Seahawks.NET for more camp updates and for further updates on the contract status of Spencer and Tatupu.
