WR LOGAN PAYNE
(On the injuries to wide receivers…) I was just hoping that I didn’t take a shot to my rib. We’ll be all right, we have a good group. Bobby and Deion are getting healthy, so they will get back. We just have to suck it up until we get this thing right.
(On having so many wide receivers….) I think we have a great group. Across the board, probably the best group that I’ve been a part of since I’ve been in the league, and it’s only been a couple of years. From top to bottom we have a lot of guys that can play. We just have to get everybody healthy and get this thing going.
(On thinking about the numbers, of who is kept where…. ) If you think about it too much, you will go crazy. From top to bottom, we know the plays, and we want to go out there and execute. We are trying to take advantage of the opportunity that we have.
(On what happens when a teammate like Obomanu gets hurt, and how that might benefit you…) It’s tough to look at it like that. We are a tight family; not only the Seahawks as a whole, but the receiver group. We love each other, and Ben is one of the leaders in our receiver groups. He has been around the block, and a guy like me, who came up through the practice squad and worked his way up. He has definitely inspired us. He is going to get healthy and get back, and the same with Deion and Bobby. We don’t really look at it that way, we look at like we need to get those guys back as soon as possible.
