Morning links: Wilson happy to be a Raven

Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback talked to Jamison Henley of the Baltimore Sun about the trade that sent him to Baltimore. And Wilson said he was pleased to be headed back to his old stomping grounds, along with playing a playoff contender.

“I couldn’t be happier. You never expect it, but you know it always can happen. But if it had to happen, you're going to a Super Bowl contender and play on a defense like this. If it has to happen, I don't think I can get a better situation.”

Rob Rang of says Wilson and Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons as potential breakout players this season.

Clare Farnsworth of says Wilson is happy to headed back home.

Former Seahawks long snapper Matt Overton signed with the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL.

Miami defensive end Kendall Langford lost a diamond earring he forgot to take off on the practice field that he said was nearly 2.5 carats, and reported to be worth nearly $50,000. Langford, along with several of his teammates looked for the earring after practice, but had to give up his search to attend a meeting. The grounds crew mowed the lawn soon after.

While the Seahawks continue to make moves they believe improve their chances to win long term, the window seems to be closing for the Arizona Cardinals. The latest from down in the desert is quarterback Matt Leinart asserting that he has outplayed Derek Anderson, even though Anderson will likely be the starter for the Cardinals.

Rumor has it Lineart is now being shopped around the league as potential trade bait.
