The offense that Russell Wilson hoped to see for the Seattle Seahawks this season is beginning to come to fruition, the Seahawks quarterback said Wednesday when he met with the media after practice.
Tailback Marshawn Lynch is quickly becoming the Lynch of old on the field after sitting out the first week in a holdout, and the offensive line is coming into shape with the return of left tackle Russell Okung, guard James Carpenter and center Max Unger due to injuries.
“Our offensive line is really coming together,” Wilson said after practice. “We have our guys back in there, so that really helps us a lot, and we have given tons of reps look 100 times better, too.”
What also is a plus this year is having the receiving corps largely intact throughout camp, led by Percy Harvin, who last year played just one regular season game.
“To have Percy for an entire training camp has really helped a lot,” Wilson said. “Our connection, as you guys probably saw today, we made a lot of plays doing a lot of great things, same with the other receivers too, as well. Our receiver posiotn is looking very, very good right now, catching the ball extremely well. So to have Percy out there and his explosiveness, his tough mentality is great.”
Harvin got his heel stepped on in Tuesday’s practice, eliciting a brief scare. But he returned at the end of practice and Wednesday looked none the worse for the wear.
“He’s a tough player,” Wilson said. “He wants to be out on the field. He’s itching to make plays and he’s such a tremendous athlete.”
