Good morning. The Seahawks practice this afternoon at 1:30, so I’ll have a report from practice later today. I’ll also be hosting a chat at 11 a.m., so check in later if you have time.
Peter King of Sports Illustrated writes that the Seahawks will get a seventh-round pick that could improve to a sixth in the trade with Buffalo if Tarvaris Jackson is active for six games. King also mentions that he was told by “Someone Who Knows” that Wilson would have to be markedly better than free-agent signee Matt Flynn to win the starting job, and that Wilson’s performance was “markedly better.”
Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News writes that Jackson looks like the frontrunner to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick, with Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen struggling in preseason play.
Here’s my story on a busy day for the Seahawks on Sunday, which included naming Russell Wilson as the team’s starting quarterback.
Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com writes that Wilson took full advantage of his opportunities to earn the starting job.
ESPN’s Mike Sando writes that Pete Carroll naming Wilson the starter had more to do with the rookie’s play than the shortcomings of Matt Flynn.
Toni Monkovic of the New York Times’ Fifth Down Blog writes that Wilson being named a starter is a victory for short people.
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports says Terrell Owens might have a tough time catching on with another team in this video link.
Alex Marvez of Fox Sports writes that Owens’ release proves he’s just not good enough anymore.
Clark Judge of CBS Sports writes that if this is the end for Owens, he does not deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
Mike Freeman of CBS Sports writes that although Owens was a jerk at times, he’s has Hall of Fame credentials.
