A little bit of a delay in the links this morning to let the Tarvaris Jackson news rest atop the blog. At this writing, nothing official yet on that, though it is widely assumed there could be later in the day.
For now, a few other news and notes:
— Some interesting stuff from assistant head coach/offensive line coach Tom Cable in an interview on ESPN 710 this morning (you can find it here, first part of the 10 a.m. hour on Wednesday).
Here are a few highlights. …
Cable said what he likes about the way the offensive line is coming together is its overall youth, saying “we’re building the right group of people to have it last for a good period of time and not just a two-year deal;”
He said one key to what he thinks will be the continued evolution of the running game is that “we have some depth at the running back spot where it’s not just all about Marshawn (Lynch)” specifically mentioning the progress of Robert Turbin;
There was lots of talk about the philosophy of the read option and if it can be a long-term offensive option. Cable said there’s little doubt it can be, especially with a “franchise” QB like Russell Wilson;
