Morning links: Cable says O-line in midseason form

Clare Farnsworth of has an interesting report from Phase II of Seattle’s offseason conditioning program at the VMAC.

Seattle offensive line/assistant head coach Tom Cable says that his group has started right where they left off, retaining a lot of the information taught to them in 2012.

Farnsworth reports the incumbent offensive line includes Russell Okung at left tackle, Paul McQuistan at left guard, Max Unger at center, J.R. Sweezy at right guard and Breno Giacomini, who’s recovering from elbow surgery, at right tackle.

“We’re able to just kind of plug in where we left off,” Cable said. “Then the newness and the new things we want to add to it, we’ll put some focus to that. But it’s really been pretty good how they’ve competed just to bring it back with them. It’s made it a lot easier for us.”

There’s been some questions in the comments section about the health of specific players, but we’ve had no media availability for offseason workouts. The next media availability scheduled for the Seahawks is next Friday, the opening day of Seattle’s three-day, rookie minicamp.
