Warner said on KTAR radio in Phoneix it isn't "a huge knock" not to want to start, and added about Bulger, "Football isn't everything" to him.
He said, "For too many guys, it's all about winning and losing, it's all about starting, it's all about how much money you can make. And that's not Marc Bulger."
Warner continued with his opinion, noting that Bulger "got beat up pretty good" while with the Rams and that it wouldn't be a surprise if he was perfectly "happy" as a No. 2 quarterback.
"He can just enjoy life and not have to worry about the pressure of being an NFL starter and everything that goes with it," Warner concluded.
However, he did say Bulger would indeed strive to start if it was the right situation.
"I definitely am hopeful to be back here, but at the same time, I understand that with a new GM, with a new regime, they sometimes want to go in a different direction," Hasselbeck told espn.com. "That could happen, too. I am prepared for whatever. Right now, I am just trying to get strong, really improve in some areas on the field and make a big leap this year physically and be ready to play at a high level - play hopefully the best football of my career."
Darrell Bevell, the Seahawks' new offensive coordinator via the Vikings, was an assistant with Green Bay in 2000 when Hasselbeck was with the Packers.
"I have been with Darrell in Green Bay," Hasselbeck said. "I really like him as a coach. I love the offense he is installing here. If I was in charge of the offense, it is the offense that I would install. That learning curve would be good."
"Either way, it's going to be a pretty new coaching staff. There is a lot of change here in Seattle in terms of the roster. They like to change the roster as much as they can, probably in an effort to get younger."
Sharper has rebuffed some concrete offers to move full-time into the media, The Sports Xchange has confirmed, and is preparing as if he'll play somewhere in 2011. The 13-year veteran is the league's leading active interceptor, and only five players in history have more than Sharper's 63 thefts. Just one pure safety, all-time leader and Hall of Fame member and former Viking Paul Krause, has more. Sharper played in only eight games in 2010, the fewest of his career, and the only time he has appeared in fewer than 13 contests. He had just one start, the least since he had none as a rookie in 1997.
But at age 35, Sharper thinks he has enough left in the tank, certainly in terms of football "smarts," to be at least an effective nickel safety for a team, and is especially seeking out a contender.
Britt was charged with resisting arrest and other offenses when he was confronted by detectives that believed he was carrying as marijuana cigar.
The charges were reduced to disorderly persons offenses and sent to Hoboken Municipal Court, where a hearing has been scheduled for June 23.
Said Briggs, "To me, it is what it is. The thing that's bothersome is not knowing what our schedule is going to be. Whether this thing is done in two weeks or done in a month, then where do we go from there? We obviously must start the next day.
"I don't like the gray area. Not a fan of the gray area. I guess we just have to stay strong."
Briggs also wonders about a $250,000 workout bonus he was scheduled to receive had this been a normal offseason.
"I don't know what is going to happen with that bonus," he said. "I could use that money just as much as anybody else. That was definitely factored into my budget this year. But if I don't get it, I don't get it.
"More than anything else -- more than any bonus -- I just want to play football."
This week's practices have been at the University of Cincinnati.
Said Benson, "Considering it's the lockout, it's tough to get football work in. High schools and colleges are getting their kids ready to go. I saw this as an opportunity to get some real good football work in."
Benson has maintained throughout the lockout that he hopes to re-sign with the Bengals. He also said the workouts have enabled the offensive players to get somewhat comfortable with new coordinator Jay Gruden's system.
He said, "The quarterbacks have the playbook down comfortable and are calling plays fast. It's good to see them competing and working hard."
With quarterback Carson Palmer not expected back, along with the new scheme, Benson said, "There's no question having a new coordinator is going to be a fresh start. This offense is eager for a fresh start. Change can be good. Considering the way things went a year ago, it's time for change. I think it's going to be a good look."
Benson said he wants to become more of a leader, assuming he is back with the team.
"I've been very passive the last three years, almost because I've had to," he said. "I'm not saying I'm a totally different person or I'd be crazy vocal or anything like that. I would be a little bit more expressive. I work hard and am passionate about it. I want the guys I'm playing with to be the same way."
