Morning kickoff — Wrapping up mini-camp, and more

Some links wrapping up the rookie mini-camp, and other stuff. …

Jayson Jenks wrote the story for our paper this morning on the quest of Jerrod Johnson to win the backup QB job.

As Jenks wrote of the competition for the backup spot:

Johnson previously had stints with two other NFL teams — the Eagles in 2011 and Steelers in 2012 — but he never played in any games and therefore was allowed to participate in Seattle’s three-day rookie minicamp. The Seahawks signed Johnson in late April, so he entered with some familiarity with the playbook and calls.

He will compete with Brady Quinn and Josh Portis for a backup quarterback spot; the Seahawks kept only two quarterbacks on the active roster last season.
