According to the Seattle Post, none of Mike Williams, Ben Obomanu, and Deon Butler are locks to make the Seahawks’ roster. The report called Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate, and Sidney Rice as the only locks to make the roster, as the trio of Williams, Obomanu, and Butler will have to compete with youngsters Ricardo Lockette and Kris Durham. Durham was a 4th round pick in 2011 that did nothing as a rookie, while Lockette is an undrafted free agent from that same year that Pete Carroll has spoken highly of. Mike Williams, meanwhile, is owed 3 million this year and questionable for the start of camp as he recovers from broken leg. He seems likely to be one of the odd men out.

Trufant is still a talented player even though...

Most of the players on the roster were veterans past their prime or younger guys who never managed to have a prime of any sort. In the win-loss column, the team had a pathetic nine total wins to show for the previous two seaons. The...
