Richard Sherman is 2nd consecutive Seahawk to win “Good Guy Award” from Pro Football Writers Association

Richard Sherman’s humor and willingness to talk about almost everything — not to mention his thoughtful answers and interest in what a reporter has to say — has earned him the league’s “Good Guy Award” for the 2014 season as voted on by members of the Pro Football Writers Association. The PFWA announced the honor Tuesday morning.

The All-Pro cornerback makes the Seahawks the first team to have winners of the award in consecutive years. Quarterback Russell Wilson won it in 2014.

Sherman will talk to you anywhere, and about anything. Remember the time I stopped him outside the

Seahawks start only mandatory minicamp–but grounded inside team HQ for 1st 2 days of it

Spending almost all this week at Chambers Bay to help cover for The News Tribune what is shaping up to be a U.S. Open unlike the previous 114 golf championships.

But Thursday I will leave the golf for a day to be back at my usual post, at Seahawks headquarters in Renton for the team’s only mandatory minicamp before training camp begins at the end of July.

Remarkable: Jesse Williams “cleared for light workouts” two weeks after surgery for cancer removed kidney

This is crazy — in the best possible way:

Yes, “The Monstar” has attacked cancer.

Williams had surgery on May 28 for papillary type 2 cancer at the University of Washington Medical Center. Doctors there removed one of his kidneys. He checked out of the hospital two days later, and since then he and the team have been waiting to ensure the cancer was not returning. The defensive tackle from Australia and the University of Alabama who

Richard Sherman has a retort for Antonio Cromartie’s criticism of him. Of course he does.

That’s me having fun with Richard Sherman over his wearing that bucket hat throughout the Seahawks’ eighth (of 10) organized team activities practice — it even stayed on while he sprinted step for step with Doug Baldwin down the field during scrimmaging.

Sherman then had some fun firing back at New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who said last week on Sirius XM radio Sherman should not be considered one of the league’s top cornerbacks because he doesn’t play both sides of the field and follow the opposing team’s best receiver man-to-man.

“That,”

Kam Chancellor, finally surgery-free: “This is the strongest offseason I’ve had”

The Seahawks are back on the field today for the third of their three days this week of organized team activities at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton. Quarterback Russell Wilson was expected to participate for the first time this week after being with Jimmy Graham in Miami Monday to attend the funeral of Graham’s mentor and manager, and after Wilson attended the funeral of the father of fellow teammate Cliff Avril Thursday in Jacksonville.

Kam Chancellor was back on the field, too, as he’s been all week. That is one of

No Wilson. No Graham. No Lynch. No … Seahawks OTAs more noteworthy for who wasn’t on the field than for who was

The Seahawks’ first day of offensive-versus-defense drills in voluntary organized team activities was more remarkable for who wasn’t there (and why) than for who was on the field.

Russell Wilson (along with Mo Kelly, Seahawks vice president of player engagement) took a transcontinental flight to be in Florida Tuesday with recently acquired tight end Jimmy Graham for the funeral of Graham’s close mentor Tamara Fox Meyerson. The quarterback was also trying to travel to the funeral for the father of defensive end Cliff Avril.

Wilson, Graham and

Bruce Irvin tells online outlet: “I’m going to be in Atlanta next season… believe that.”

Maybe he was caught in a very Atlanta moment — courtside at the Hawks’ NBA playoff game — looking very Atlanta (Hawks cap and T-shirt with, check ‘em out, matching red, canvas sneakers) in his hometown.

Or maybe Bruce Irvin really does want to leave the Seahawks that have started him in the last two Super Bowls, after drafting him 15th overall in 2012, to join a team hasn’t even made the playoffs over those same, last two seasons.

Whatever the reason, Irvin reportedly said publicly last night he wants to play for the Falcons in 2016.

“I’m going to

Why defenders Joey Mbu, Eli Harold and Nate Orchard are favorites entering this draft

Spend a couple months — or more, as many do these days — studying the NFL draft and some favorite guys emerge. I have a couple I would enjoy covering daily at Seahawks headquarters — and at least one I’ve come across who I’d prefer to not.

I was delighted to spend a few minutes at the combine in February talking to Houston defensive tackle Joey Mbu, and apparently everyone who meets him feels the same way. He laughed, joked and seemed genuinely appreciative of this opportunity to be a professional football player. He talked about how only four
