Quick mini-camp notes

richardson

The first day of Seattle’s rookie mini-camp has completed. Here are a few quick notes.

— Two of the 59 players on the roster did not participate. Sixth-round pick Garrett Scott has not yet passed his physical, coach Pete Carroll said, though he did not specify the issue. And WR Chris Matthews, a free agent signee from the CFL, is being held out due to a hamstring injury.

— Among those participating is linebacker Korey Toomer, a fifth-round pick in 2012 who sat out last  year with a hip injury. Toomer lined up at strongside linebacker and Carroll said it was good to see him healthy and back out on the field. Toomer picked off a short pass from Zach Zulli and returned it for a touchdown.

Keith Price ran the first unit at QB and had a good day, including connecting with Paul Richardson on a 63-yard TD pass that served as the highlight for the offense. Price talked to the media afterward and I’ll have some video of that later. Richardson (in a John Lok photo above) beat Eric Pinkins down the sideline on the play, the ball traveling maybe 45 yards in the air.

Jackson Jeffcoat is working at the LEO spot and Carroll said the Seahawks had to work for an hour or so following the draft to get him signed, crediting Ken Norton for getting the deal done.

— Carroll cautioned it was the first day of a mini-camp so he didn’t make a lot of sweeping conclusions. But he said the WRs — Richardson and Kevin Norwood — stood out. Norwood also had a long TD catch from Price.

Cassius Marsh usually lined up at the five-technique spot with Michael Brooks at the three and Dewayne Cherrington at nose.

Jared Smith, a seventh-round pick a year ago, was the center for the No. 1 offense.

— One of the intriguing new tryout names is WR Morrell Presley of California (Pa.) University, but once a big-time recruit at UCLA, who ran into some issues there.

A few more notes and quotes later.
