Bob Heist of the Pensacola Business Journal checks in with Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin, who’s working out in his hometown with quarterback Matt Flynn, as the two prepare for the beginning of training camp in a few weeks.
Flynn drove to Pensacola with Green Bay Packers offensive guard Josh Sitton to workout with Baldwin.
“Last year, Doug being undrafted, obviously, I’m sure he had something to prove coming in, a chip on his shoulder, and he more than proved he belongs on the field,” Flynn said about Baldwin. “He broke the record last year and he’s a very dynamic guy. I’ve been throwing to him for only two months but I can already see how he’s a special player and will be around for a long time.”
Tom Pelissero of ESPN 1500 Twin Cities talks with Tarvaris Jackson, who’s in Minnesota working at Larry Fitzgerald’s annual offseason workouts. Other Seattle players in town include Leon Washington, Ricardo Lockette and Golden Tate. Jackson had this to say about the quarterback competition: “You only know what coaches tell you. Coaches have been pretty straightforward about the competition. It's all you can ask. Just let me know where I stand. That's all you can really ask for -- know the truth and let the best man win.”
