Every weekday morning, we'll round up local and national Seattle Seahawks-related links.
"After my 10th-grade year I was done with football," he told me. "I was like, ‘Forget this. I’m done with sports.’ Because nobody was getting scholarships out of my high school. So I was like, ‘Why waste my time?’
"Then we ended up get a head-coaching change. That’s when I met my mentor, still today."
Sean Williams became Bedford’s coach -- and Powell’s life saver.
That Pericak has the ability to also play center is the reason I am keeping him and waiving Evans, who has been solely a right guard since the first day or so of camp — versatility is pretty much a must for the backup spots, and especially a veteran who isn’t being kept for developmental reasons. There is a growing thought the team will keep [George] Fant. But for now, I’m sticking with the idea they’ll want the players who can most immediately help the team and get Fant through to the practice squad.
More significantly: This was a huge vote of confidence in Justin Britt’s readiness at that position.
If there was much of a question about Britt, it’s hard to imagine Seattle not holding onto Lewis given how valuable he turned out to be a year ago after Seattle’s experiment at center backfired.
