Morning links: Stanback’s comeback

Chris Wells of The News Tribune takes a closer look at UW product Isaiah Stanback and his quest to earn a roster spot as part of a talented pool of wide receivers for the Seahawks.

Stanback suffered a torn, left Achilles tendon during training camp last year. But he’s fully healthy now, and has been one of the bright spots so far in camp for Seattle.

“I’m definitely still learning,” Stanback said. “I look forward to the day when receiver is just a reaction for me. I still think about most things, and I think most people do. But it hasn’t become 100 percent natural yet.”

David Boling of The News Tribune discusses how the Seahawks will fill the leadership void left by the departure of Matt Hasselbeck, Lofa Tatupu and Lawyer Milloy. He points to David Hawthorne, Robert Gallery and Tarvaris Jackson as potential candidates.
