Morning links: Mayowa making case with Seahawks

We’ll start out morning links with this story by Jayson Jenks on rookie free agent Benson Mayowa, who got the start Saturday against the Broncos.

As Jenks writes:

Mayowa’s start against Denver does, however, come with an asterisk. Defensive ends Chris Clemons and Cliff Avril were out again because of injuries, depleting Seattle’s depth. But Mayowa didn’t start the first game against San Diego and was a guy the Seahawks wanted to see against better competition.

The results were mixed.

Mayowa struggled against Denver’s first-team offense. He generated little pressure whenwas in the game. In the run game, he was exposed some as Denver’s line pushed back his 252-pound body. “I don’t feel like I played my best game,” Mayowa said. “I feel like I could have affected the quarterback a little bit more, but that’s going to come with more wisdom and more technique.”
