Morning links: All eyes on Wilson at passing camp

T.J. Cotterill of The News Tribune provides details from Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s passing camp, held this weekend at the University of Washington.

A surprise starter for Seattle as a rookie, Wilson has risen to one of the most popular players on the team in a year, with camp goers hanging on his every word. Along with fundamental drill work, Wilson also focused on the mental side of the game on Saturday.

“That’s what we are trying to teach these kids with this camp … to be mentally tough,” Wilson said. “To limit the distractions and continue to play football the right way and be the best at what you do. No matter if it’s the quarterback position, the running back, defensive back, whatever it is, let’s make sure we fine-tune it and get better.”
