In my story today, University of Montana defensive back Donny Lisowski wowed Seattle head coach Pete Carroll during the team’s rookie minicamp last week, earning a three-year contract and a spot on the team’s 90-man roster.
Now, Lisowski’s looking to do enough to make it to training camp, with the hop of landing on the team’s final roster for the regular season.
Also, we’ll get a chance to watch one of the final workouts of Phase II for the Seahawks this morning, as they transition into the OTAs’ portion of the offseason next week.

Here’s what Carroll had to say about Lisowski:
“He was all over the place out here. He ran extremely fast when he showed up for a workout day, and then he went out here and made a bunch of plays. So I was really fired up about him. I think he’ll surprise you. I’m anxious to see what he can do on special teams and all kinds of stuff.”
