Russell Wilson

NWSB Managing editor and Seattle Seahawks blogger “Q” tells us about the news breaking tonight out of Seattle that Pete Carroll has picked rookie 3rd round pick out of Wisconsin Russell Wilson to be the Seahawks 2012 opening day starting quarterback. Matt Flynn missed most of last week’s practices with tendinitis in his elbow and did not play in the game against the Chiefs. That opened the door WIDE open for Wilson. Who slammed it shut.

Are the Seahawks interested in Stephon Gilmore or Mark Barron?

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Matt Church tells us today two players that could be getting some interest in Seattle for the 2012 NFL Draft. Safety Mark Barron was a superstar during his college career at Alabama, manning the National Championship defense in 2009. At 6-1, Stephon Gilmore has the ideal height to be a great NFL cornerback. Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor are shaking their heads.
