We noted earlier in the week that Seattle was going to be trying out some tight ends. Injuries have hit the position hard. The Seahawks’ list of tryouts included Calen Powell, Stephen Spach, Marcellus Rivers and Boo Williams. The team also brought in QB Bradlee Van Pelt, as expected, and C Thatcher Szalay, who signed a practice-squad contract yesterday. Powell has been with the Seahawks in the past. Rivers spent last season with the Giants. Note: Our latest roster reflects these tryouts. Find it here. By the way, Van Pelt also worked out with Kansas City.

    Come on Calen! That’s as close as a Duke Blue Devil has come to the NFL since Spurrier left DC!

    It just seems funny that the Seahawks are advertising on your blog. I think it’s safe to say everone who comes here is aware of the Seahawks.

    Boo Williams is an interesting name as he had 41 catches one year. What is the deal with as he didn’t play last year and is unsigned this year??

    “Rivers spent last season with the Giants.”
    This is not a surprise. This year players such as Peter Warrick are simply brought in for “tryouts.” The teams must have figured out a way to compensate them for their knowledge of their opponent.

    I think Calen Powell is from Bellevue

  6. Yep. Got him listed on the new roster file with the other guys who have tried out.

  7. Yeah , Boo is one I havent heard from in a while . Whats his story ?
