Wednesday links: Bradford finding a home in the middle?

The Seahawks were off Tuesday but will  be back on the field today for what  is the last practice of training camp open to the public.

And what remains one of the intriguing stories of camp is the attempt of Allen Bradford (No. 52 above in a John Lok photo) to make the team as he also  makes the transition from running back to linebacker.

UW fans may remember  him running all over the Huskies in a wild 2010 game in LA that Washington won 32-31 on a last-play field goal  by Erik Folk — Bradford had 223 yards that night.

Jayson Jenks wrote this story on Bradford for the Wednesday paper that includes this quote from Bradford on how he plays the position:

“I run through fullbacks,” he said. “I’m going to hit the running back. I’m going to hit the receiver. Wherever the ball goes, I’m gonna go and crush it. That’s just my mentality since I’ve been playing football. It’s something I can bring to the team. It’s something I want to bring.”

Bradford is competing with Heath Farwell for the backup MLB spot behind Bobby Wagner, and has gotten a ton of work this camp with  Wanger missing most of it and Farwell also  being injured early on.

He’ll undoubtedly also get a ton of snaps Saturday against Denver as the coaches continue their assessment of younger players.
