Seahawks Daily Top 10: Schofield battles for spot, and more

Time for 10 on a Tuesday.

1, We’ll start with my story for the paper on O’Brien Schofield, whose route back to the Seahawks this off-season was far from a straight line. He also is now playing solely defensive end for the first time in his professional career. “I played D-end in college, so this to me is more my natural position,” he said.  “To be able to get all my instincts and feelings back, I feel like I’m on the right path.” He said he also feels  like it’s the first time he’s really just concentrated on learning pass rush skills, saying in Arizona “we didn’t work on a lot of pass rush stuff.  It was kind of like what you cane in with is what you had. It was more about the linebackers dropping in coverage and stuff like that. So to learn from (defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and defensive line coach Travis Jones) has been huge for me this off-season. Now I’m just putting everything together.”

2, As for the schedule today, this will be the last training camp practice open to the public, scheduled to run from 10:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

3, One personnel note yesterday — LB Mike Taylor cleared waivers and reverted to Injured Reserve. He becomes the fourth player on IR joining Anthony McCoy, Taylor Price and Jesse Williams (recall that they waived Dion Bailey off of IR earlier this week).

4, And here’s our full story for the paper on the Marshawn Lynch situation.

5, Seahawks.com says the team comes  home looking for improvement.

6, ESPN’s Terry Blount doesn’t see Schofield making it in his latest projection of Seattle’s 53-man roster.

7, The Dolphins signed one-time Seahawks Brady Quinn.

8, A good place to get all your Chargers info is Eric Williams’ blog on ESPN. Here are his morning links for Tuesday.

9, The Packers closed practice to the public Monday, apparently beginning to install some things for the opener against the Seahawks Sept. 4. Also, here’s a good overview of where things stand with the Packers so far in camp.

10, Finally, some interesting context from the Denver side on all the penalties called in the game Thursday.
