Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has praised the play of Josh Portis in training camp. And the coaching staff is looking forward to seeing him play on Thursday.
My story today takes a closer look at the Southern California native’s winding journey to Seattle. Carroll believes the talented 24-year-old could be part of the team’s plans at quarterback moving forward.
“Josh is going to be around here for a while,” Carroll said. “So we need to see how he develops because his talent is there. We’re going to take a great look at him. He’ll play a bunch in the preseason. And he’ll play a lot in the San Diego game. So we’re looking forward to seeing him and getting him out on the field.”
