Monday links: NFL hits its slow season

First, a quick note that the NFL is now in what is one of its few real down times of the year — the five-week break from mini-camp to the start of training camp.

So things will  slow down on the blog a bit for a few weeks, as well, as we take vacations and all that. We’ll get any news up quickly, and there will still be stuff here regularly. Just not quite at the pace of the regular season. If you notice some dark days on here, it’s nothing more than that.

For now, a few links. …

— If you missed it over the weekend, Times columnist Larry Stone wrote about the importance of maintaining motivation in the quest to repeat.

— And for today, Jayson Jenks wrote about Kevin Williams and how he may fit into Seattle’s defensive line rotation, saying he won’t have any issues playing fewer snaps.

Justin Britt won the vote of ESPN readers to start at right tackle.

Walter Thurmond says he’s learning more about defense with the Giants than he did with the Seahawks.

— Pro Football Focus offers a projected depth chart for the Seahawks.

— The Vancouver Sun with a profile of former CFLer Chris Matthews, who remarks on how competitive things are with the Seahawks.

— Here’s some video of Chris Clemons and Red Bryant talking about their new home in Jacksonville.

— FieldGulls with the handwritten letter UDFA linebacker Horace Miller recently received from John Schneider (and word is that Miller has caught the eye of the Seattle staff so far).

— Denver offensive coordinator Adam Gase says the Broncos played their worst game of the year against the Seahawks in the Super Bowl.

— A breakdown showing Seattle had one of the lighter front sevens in the NFL last season (that could change a bit this year, though, with the addition of Williams which might mean moving Tony McDaniel to end at times).
