The TNT’s Dave Boling caught up with Seahawks defensive tackle Red Bryant, who made his presence felt over the weekend by regularly showing up in the backfield. Bryant said after suffering through an injury-filled year in his rookie season he wants to live up to the expectations heaped upon him when team GM Tim Ruskell drafted him in 2008.

The Texas A & M product with the Southern drawl said teammate Brandon Mebane has taken him under his wing and introduced Bryant to some new eating habits.

Here’s Boling:

Given that the two weigh in at well over 600 pounds combined, they have a strange new passion.

"He’s got me eating sushi, now," Bryant said.

Informed the two don’t particularly look like delicate sushi connoisseurs, Bryant almost shouted: "I know!"

"But I like it now … I love those California rolls … those are my favorite."

Check out the story here.

The Seattle Seahawks bring back FB David Kirtman again to add depth to the backfield rotation. Kirtman was cut last signed, spent some time with San Francisco and finished the season on New Orleans’ practice squad.

Seahawks Nate Burleson, Logan Payne, Marcus Trufant and others played a charity game in Bellingham and Squalicum High, beating the defending Class 2A state champs in overtime.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that ex-Seahawk Leonard Weaver is a throwback – a complete fullback who can do everything, something that Philadelphia hasn’t had a for awhile.

Veteran Seattle-area reporter Bob Sherwin asks if the Seahawks have changed enough to change their performance on the field.
