Both Earl Thomas and Gus Bradley talked about the close relationship they developed when Bradley was here as defensive coordinator.

Of Sunday’s meeting with Bradley’s Jaguars. “It’s gonna be weird because the relationship we built, but it’s going to be a great experience, that just goes with being in the NFL.”

On his departure: “I wasn’t excited.. I wanted him to stay but that’s the nature of the business.. he made the best decision for his family.”

Why they grew so close: “He made me feel comfortable from day one, it was not like a dad, but like an uncle to me, I was sad to see him leave.”

On being unsurprised that Bradley would get a head coaching job: “I definitely  thought so because of the success we were having with the defense. He’s always positive and upbeat, 6 am. in the morning and he’s always fire up.. it’s a credit to what he did here in Seattle.”

  1. Carroll says Okung out of the area getting another opinion on his toe. No word on how long he will be out

  2. chuck_easton says:

    The Okung story is going to be death by 1,000 paper cuts. Each new report will be a little more ominous until we finally learn he’s out for significant time, if not for the season.

    LVHawk, for your own mental/physical well being, just assume he’s done and move on. If he comes back at all it can be a happy surprise development. But my money is still on IR – Designated to Return at best case and season ending IR at worst.

    People on here that keep holding out some hope of seeing Okung anytime soon are just setting themselves up for heartache and disappointment.

    Next man up, and let’s hope whomever takes the LT job for the rest of the Season can be an adequate stopgap.

  3. You could just wait and see without making any ill-informed assumptions. That said, I wouldn’t expect to see him back in 2 weeks.
