Seattle Seahawks HEADLINES
The Chicago Bears will play their first of two road preseason contests in just under a week's time when they travel to the Pacific Northwest to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks on Friday.
The league creates 64 new jobs during this regular season with the addition of two more practice-squad players per team, with members to be determined on Aug. 31; defensive coordinator Dan Quinn praises O’Brien Schofield, Jeron Johnson.
Despite missing all of Seattle’s spring minicamps and its entire training camp, the linebacker makes a remarkable interception worthy of his Super Bowl MVP award on his first full day of practice this preseason. He says his new fame hasn’t changed him — or his game.

The NFL is penalizing each team an average of 9.5 times per exhibition game this month, up from 6.1 accepted flags accepted per team per regular-season game in 2013. Though Pete Carroll expects an adjustment for the regular season.
Able to score in so many ways, receiver Percy Harvin will stand out by matching the competitive spirit of defending World Champions
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back Robert Turbin, and defensive end O’Brien Schofield stated convincing cases on the field. Off it? They all deferred.
Turbin gains 81 yards and scores a touchdown in the first half to take a lead in the battle for the No. 2 tailback job behind Lynch. Christine Michael fumbled for the second time in eight carries on the opening drive.
Wilson completes 11 of 13 passes, saves five would-be sacks with deft scrambles, rushes for 2 TDs – all in less than two quarters. The defense allows 42 yards and zero points in four drives. And Seattle returns to CenturyLink Field the way it left it six months ago, joyous and triumphant.
Russell Wilson ran for a pair of touchdowns as the Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Diego Chargers, 41-14, in preseason action on Friday night.
The usual disclaimer applies: its only preseason. Caveat aside, the Seattle Seahawks convincingly dismantled the San Diego Chargers 41-14.
This is the first year since 2002 that three of Seattle’s four exhibition opponents are regular-season foes, too. That includes Friday night’s visitor to CenturyLink Field, the San Diego Chargers. “We are going to be very gauged at how we do this,” Pete Carroll says.
With recent time on the sidelines following hip surgery, Seattle’s hard-hitting strong safety has been having fun making “peace” between Richard Sherman at officials at practice while coaching younger players. Plus, rookie DE Cassius Marsh is already back from Wednesday’s knee injury.
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been cleared of any involvement in an assault and property damage accusation, the Bellevue Police Department said Wednesday night.
The undrafted wide out from Division-II Fort Valley State (Ga.) thought in 2011 that he’d come into the league “and be the next Jerry Rice.” Instead, he’s now a Super Bowl champion because of his speed and dedication along a sure-fire path for young guys to make NFL teams: through special teams.
Having to learn the guard position on the job, J.R. Sweezy is now considered by his coach as one of the top young guards in the league

Two years ago, K.J. Wright broke his wrist. Last year, his foot. Finally healthy, he’s ready for a breakout year, according to linebackers coach Ken Norton.
Born at nearly 12 pounds, the rookie second-round draft choice is now 6 feet 6 and 325 pounds. And he has the inside track on becoming the starting right tackle for the Super Bowl champions. It’s a dream he’s had since he’s been, well ... yay big.

Brock Osweiler's 34-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Norwood in the fourth quarter gave the Denver Broncos the lead in a 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.
Quarterback Russell Wilson is sacked twice, hit four times and runs for his well-being far too often in his two drives behind a fill-in offensive line. Backup Terrelle Pryor looks resourceful in Seattle’s 21-16 exhibition loss at Denver that ends a nine-game preseason winning streak.
One week after he reported to camp following a contract holdout, the star running back doesn’t make the trip to Denver. It’s not a big deal, though; had had plenty of company back in Seattle, and he wasn’t going to play, anyway.
Turns out, not only will Marshawn Lynch not play in the Seahawks preseason opener tonight at Denver, he wont even be on the sidelines in a hoodie.
