Kevin Williams Starting New Chapter With Seattle

There was still a chance for Kevin Williams to return to Minnesota, the only place he knew in his NFL career. There was also a chance to join New England and play for the Patriots. So why is Williams now wearing a Seattle Seahawks uniform when he potentially could have gotten more money elsewhere? Because he liked the chance to play in a rotation on Seattle's defensive line. Williams was the latest addition to the Seahawks roster just before the start of this week's minicamp. After seeing their defensive line thinned by free agency and salary cap cuts following the Super Bowl title, the addition of Williams this late could be a major coup for the Seahawks. Williams believes he can still contribute. And Seattle is getting him at a bargain of $1.5 million for 2014. June 19, 2014

Sherman Part Of Scuffle During Seahawks Minicamp

Tempers flared during the second day of the Seattle Seahawks' minicamp, with cornerback Richard Sherman and wide receiver Phil Bates in the middle of a heated scuffle. Wednesday's practice became more intense after wide receiver Bryan Walters caught a pass and appeared to injure his shoulder falling while being closely defended by safety Earl Thomas. That started heated words between the offensive and defensive players. On the next play, Bates and Sherman locked up, both having their helmets knocked off and arms flailing before teammates separated the pair. Thomas, Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin were all jawing back and forth as well. Seattle coach Pete Carroll called the team together. By the end of practice, all the players involved were shaking hands and laughing about what happened. "We're all so competitive if you press one wrong button, everybody will clear the benches," Thomas said. June 19, 2014
