Veterans back on the field Tuesday for the first time since Super Bowl 49

The Seahawks' veterans had voluntary workouts at team headquarters last month. But those were just in the weight room and training room.

The vets are due on the field Tuesday morning for the first time since Super Bowl 49 (above), to take part in organized team activities. It's the next phase of their offseason workout program as defined by the league's collective bargaining agreement.

Russell Wilson is expected to be throwing to newly acquired tight end Jimmy Graham for the first time as Seahawks with coaches watching (the players worked out informally last month on their own on Maui).

Since Seattle's mandatory, on-field minicamp isn't until mid-June, defensive end Michael Bennett may or may or not be there on Tuesday. Bennett missed last month's voluntary training sessions in Renton while saying he'd like to be paid more -- and that every player in the NFL or any walk of life wants to be paid more.

The team has OTAs on the field with media availability after each session on each of the next three Tuesdays.
