Malcolm Smith Back To Practice For Seahawks

Malcolm Smith tracked the eyes of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and leapt into the air, snagging the football with one hand for an interception before racing 60 yards in the opposite direction for a touchdown. Earl Thomas, K.J. Wright and other members of Seattle's defense chased Smith to the end zone, shouting "MVP! MVP!" Not a bad first full day back on the practice field for Seattle's Super Bowl MVP. Smith has been sidelined throughout the entire offseason while recovering from ankle surgery this spring. He showed Tuesday that he's itching to get back to work with his teammates. RENTON, Wash.

Oregon State's Gwacham Goes From WR to DE

Having struggled at wide receiver his entire college career, Obum Gwacham is switching to defensive end for his senior year at Oregon State. He jokes that maybe his biggest catch is ahead of him - in the form of an interception. Defensive line coach Joe Seumalo planted the idea of coming over to the defense last season, Gwacham said. Following Oregon State's victory over Boise State in the Hawaii Bowl, he started seriously considering the possibility for his last year. Gwacham always had an uneven career at receiver. Over three seasons plagued by injury and inconsistency, he'd had just 11 catches for 65 yards and a touchdown, although he also played on special teams. A quick learner, Gwacham is making strides with the defense, in a group competing for the spot opposite DE Dylan Wynn. CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) – August 20, 2014
