A few notes from the Seahawks' "Town Hall" event

Pete Carroll and coordinators Darrell Bevell and Dan Quinn took questions from season-ticket holders last night. Not much new, but here are a few notable items:

> Carroll mentioned linebacker Korey Toomer as one of the standouts at OTAs. It's interesting to hear that about Toomer, who missed last season because of a knee injury. The Seahawks will have to decide which -- if any -- of their young linebackers they are going to extend. Toomer's play could influence that. Carroll also mentioned Tharold Simon as someone who has caught their attention.

> It was not a surprise, but for the first time Carroll said the Seahawks are moving on without fullback Michael Robinson. Carroll said he has talked to Robinson about coaching one day.

> Bevell said Christine Michael has become better at the "details" of being a running back. Bevell even hinted a more of running-back-by-committee approach this season.

> Bevell also said Doug Baldwin will move to the X and Percy Harvin will be the Z. He said Baldwin will play inside at times, too. Bevell also noted they like what they have seen from Sidney Rice thus far.

> Carroll said Earl Thomas was the primary punt return backup last season.

> Quinn again said Bruce Irvin will be at the rush end and that they are hoping to expand his role.
