Since 2011, the Seahawks have suffered through an astounding five suspensions as the result of performance-enhancing drugs, more commonly known as PEDs. Defensive end Bruce Irvin was the most recent offender, and he'll be off the field for the first four games of the 2013 season. It's not exactly clear why the Seahawks are having more problems with PEDs than other teams, but it's imperative that they straighten out those problems quickly. That's why some of the team's veterans organized a meeting to attempt to stop the problem from happening in the future. "We had a meeting. The vets, we put a meeting together to talk to the guys about not making the same mistakes over and over," safety Kam Chancellor told Alex Marvez and Jim Miller of SiriusXM NFL Radio. "We’ve gotta grow up and move past that," Chancellor continued.  "So that’s pretty much the message right now, growing up and not making the same mistakes over and over." It...

Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant is looking to rebound after 2012 injury marred season

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant suffered a torn plantar fascia and it impacted his play for the second half of the 2012 season.
