Below is some video of Seahawks coach Pete Carroll speaking to the media this morning at the NFL Combine.
I’ll also pass along more complete quotes later.
As for a few quick notes:
— Carroll said left tackle Russell Okung may not need surgery on his troublesome left toe, as had been expected. But he also said a final determination has yet to be made. “At this point he has not (had surgery),” Carroll said. “At this point looks like they are not going to. But that’s not done yet. Still some work being done there.’’
— Carroll said it appears as if no other players will need off-season surgeries.
— He reiterated what John Schneider said Thursday, that the Seahawks would like to keep their core together but that there will be some difficult decisions ahead. “Our whole theme is we would like to keep this team together as best we can,” Carroll said. “There are very difficult decisions you face every year in the league with contracts and money and caps and all that stuff. Every season is like that, so that brings about very challenging decisions for us because we love our team, we love our guys, so there are numbers of issues that we have to deal with and we will deal with as well as we can because those guys have played great football for us.’’
