It’s another gameday in Seattle, and it certainly feels like one as I write this, rain falling hard this morning.
It’s obviously a game in which the score doesn’t matter, simply the performance of a number of players attempting to secure roles and spots on the team.
Here’s my breakdown of some of the key players to watch tonight.
And here’s a message from Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin to those who will have another audition tonight:
To my dudes playing for jobs tomorrow, never forget this feeling. Grinding all those years has brought you this very opportunity. Take it!
