Douglas taking his time

Seven members of the 2006 Huskies were either drafted or signed free-agent contracts with NFL teams in the last two weeks.
But none of them were named Sean Douglas, which led to the obvious question of what is going on with the man who left UW as the school’s leading all-time career punter in terms of average?
Douglas said this week there’s no real mystery. He said he has merely decided to wait a while to sign, likely until after he graduates in June.
He said he has talked to a number of interested teams but thinks it is best to take his time and get a clearer view of the landscape before signing. Also, he wouldn’t have been able to attend mini-camps going on right now since he is still in school, on track to graduate with a degree in June.
“Mini-camp is kind of just like a tryout anyway,” Douglas said. “I’m going to get somewhere in time for (real) camp and the pre-season and wait around and finish school and then make a decision.”
To recap, the UW players drafted were Isaiah Stanback (Dallas) and Dashon Goldson (49er), each in the fourth round; those signed to free agent contracts were Kenny James and C.J. Wallace (each by the Seahawks), Stanley Daniels (Rams), Sonny Shackelford (Chargers) and Marlon Wood (Tampa Bay).
