According to Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News, it looks like there’s a good chance that wide receiver Golden Tate will take over as the Seahawks’ starting split.  Braylon Edwards has been starting in his spot since he got injured in training camp, but Edwards struggled against Patrick Peterson lat week.

Seahawks receiver Golden Tate practiced fully for the first time since suffering a sprained knee in the Seahawks’ final exhibition game.

Tate showed explosive burst and good hands while working with the first unit on Wednesday. Tate earned the starting split end job out of training camp, but because of his injury Braylon Edwards started against the Cardinals.

However, if Tate can get through this week’s practices healthy, he’s expected to start against the Cowboys in Seattle’s home opener.

“He’s had a good recovery,” Carroll said of Tate. “He’s got to make it through the week and show us he can do all the things he needs to do. But he’s encouraged, and feels really good.”

Late in his career Edwards is still an effective receiver, but Tate possesses the explosiveness that the Seahawks’ offense needs in their passing game.

“The UDFA” – Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin in the spotlight
