Practice is going on right now at the VMAC, as you can see in the picture above. But I jogged inside to to blog a few notes.

Offensive lineman Chester Pitts (knee), Cornerback Josh Pinkard (unspecified) and fullback Owen Schmitt (elbow) have been placed on the active PUP list, which means they still count against the 80-man roster and can be activated at any time.

Also, T.J. Houshamandzadeh, Deion Branch, Quinton Ganther, Leon Washington, Walter Thurmond, Kevin Ellison and Leroy Hill are all suited up today.

Washington is fielding punts along with Golden Tate. Ellison is wearing No. 30.

Rookie first-round selections Russell Okung and Earl Thomas are not out on the field.

Notes from practice

  1. Quick hits: Earl Thomas is here, and Pete Carroll can throw the football. Holy xxxx, no joke PETE CARROL seriously has a cannon

  2. No okung, and pitts is standing w/o a helmet

  3. Reports from the sideline, HawksKD? Nice. How does Leon Washington look moving and cutting?

  4. Sorry to excite I must rescind the Earl Thomas siting

  5. Dukeshire says:

    HawksKD – You are the man! Keep it coming.

  6. Dukeshire says:

    What’s the story with Schmitt’s elbow? Maybe after practice Eric, you can find out. Thanks

  7. HeliJoe86 says:

    Its finally here!!!!!!!!!

  8. vichawkfan says:

    Bradford, Suh about to sign, McCoy, Berry……all signed. Get out there rook’s and show your stuff!

  9. snydro22 says:

    Haden’s deal will help a little.. Crazy numbers so far with Berry and Williams – need a more realistic contract (Haden’s, though it’s still 3.5m more guaranteed than last year’s 7th) to get Okung’s deal done..

    Thomas should be signed relatively quickly..

    HawksKD, thanks man!

    Good news to hear Leons suited up practicing, I really hope they bring him along as slow as possible. guy is such a stud if healthy.

  11. First off, there is a huge difference between last years camp and this one. There is much less goofing off. Pete Carrol is very visible (Mora was always difficult to find) the assistant coaches are very loud and direct. I also noticed a lot of communications between the players. They seem to be coaching eachother up which is a great sign of chemistry. Another thing… There are a lot of players there. A quite a few whose names I don’t even recognize, and I stay up on the players as much as possible….. More details to come as I am riding out on the bus and I have a pretty busy day..I will check in periodically with observations

  12. Dukeshire says:

    Well done, sir and appreciated.

  13. HawksKD, you are a saint, thank you!

  14. Dukeshire says:

    Before Eric get his practice report up, he are some thoughts from Sando.

  15. Running game – (I was better positioned on the berm for observing the WR/DBs) the run game was difficult to assess. There wasn’t any real contact. However if were assuming the RBs are beig tackled at first contact up the middle then we are behind the ball.

    Julius doesn’t look any more impressive than he did last year. However, he was getting the majority of 1st team reps I believe.

    Forsett was still running hard every single time he had the ball.

    Leon seemed to be pretty limited but when he ran he was very fast. I found myself being impressed with forsetts speed only to find out it was washington

    loius rankin also looked fast and pretty fluid

    Ryan powdrell well I hope he sticks to blocking. Certainly not catching

    overall the RBs were very limited on their lanes as they closed very quickly almost every time… Not sure whether to praise the D or be worried about O Line.

  16. Speaking of O Line – Big trouble in little Seattle… They do not look particularly well. First snap of organized scrimmage, Hasselbeck would have been dead from the blindside protection of Willis. Second snap again Hass would have been clobbered from the blindside this time I believe baker was a step slow to pick up the rusher.

    There was no one on one drills like sando said. Unit against Unit. I had previously liked the idea of Ray Willis at LT. He is too slow and can not kick out to his left while maintaining the raw power he uses. I would like to see okung making these mistakes while learning. Not Ray Willis. Locklear looks good in his natural RT position. Surprisingly Joe Toledo looked pretty good at RT. He completely shut down the endless motor of nick reed and did not ever get bulled down by Red Bryant. Granted with Red Rushing any tackle was pushed back to the qb… It was just a matter of when… Joe managed to stay off his back but was back peddled quickly.. Observing the interior line was harder from my vantage but I did not see any blown blocking where someone was coming through the middle untouched….(this happened way too much last year). The QB hits seemed to come from the edges…

    BTW the DB that got blasted by Rankin was a smaller cornerback. Last name Brown… No idea who that is but he looks smaller than Jennings
