Keith Price, former quarterback from the University of Washington, has been shining at Seahawks rookie camp, writes Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. Coming from Steve Sarkisian’s offense in college to Pete Carroll’s has eased the transition. Sarkisian was Carroll’s offensive coordinator at USC.
Here are some other notes from Seahawks camp:
- Price was excited to have the opportunity to stay close to where he made his name as a college standout, writes Terry Blount of ESPN.com. “I had my mind set here,” Price said. “I was very familiar with the [offensive] system and the coaches. And I love this place. I love Seattle and I love being here. There’s great competition at the quarterback spot, and I’m a competitive guy.” Price will have to compete with Tarvaris Jackson, Terrelle Pryor, and B.J. Daniels for a spot on the active roster.
- The quarterback was not the only bright spot of the team’s offensive practices, as second-round pick Paul Richardson has impressed already, writes Clare Farnsworth of Seattle.com. Richardson was on the receiving end of Price’s passes. His 4.33 speed was on display as he ran past the defense, consistently getting open.
- Marshawn Lynch is set to star in a movie about his own life, writes Marcus Thompson II of the San Jose Mercury News. Lynch is notorious for avoiding the media, but is excited about the opportunity to showcase his story. “For me, it’s just about having some fun,” Lynch said. “It’s just a fun experience. I also get to the shine light on the community and some of the things that we grew up doing and what we went through.”
