Here’s my story from the first day of practice, focusing on second-round selection running back Christine Michael.

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll had this to say about Michael on his first day of practice:

“He’s very quick — very quick and sudden,” Carroll said of Michael. “He caught the ball well too, and didn’t have any trouble picking things up to understand the system. For a first day, he got off to a good start.”

Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle also writes about Michael in this report.

Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com breaks down the players at minicamp by position group here.

ESPN’s Mike Sando offers his take on the first day of practice for Seattle.

Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times offers some notes and quotes from the first day of camp.

Jayson Jenks of The Seattle Times focuses on defensive tackles Jordan Hill and Jesse Williams.

John Boyle of The Everett Herald provides some pictures from Richard Sherman’s Twitter account of him on the water watching practice on Friday.

Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle talk with Hawks GM John Schneider in this audio link. Schneider tells the duo that the team would have been disappointed had they not secured tight end Luke Willson in the fifth round.

Check out a gallery of photos from Friday’s practice here.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that former Seattle first round selection linebacker Aaron Curry signed a one-year deal with the Giants after visiting the team on Thursday.

    Eric your story is blocked…. Normally this is not the case and I hope this is just a one time occurrence.

  2. What about Dom Whaley???

  3. Dukeshire says:

    Eric, that picture reminds me of Julius Jones. Is it just that one picture or are there other similarities regarding their running styles?

  4. Would like to know the size of Michael’s thighs. I bet he doesn’t have a pair of skinny jeans.

    @Oldslow

    lol. Yeah, he’s a pretty thick dude from top to bottom. Don’t be so sure on the skinny jeans thing though. Kids these days are the biggest slaves to fashion I’ve ever seen; they’ll wear the dumbest looking pair of jeans just because the style or brand is “in” or considered “fresh”.
