Morning links: Wrotto back in the fold

According to multiple reports, including this one by fellow teammate Mike Williams, the Seattle Seahawks have re-signed offensive lineman Mansfield Wrotto to add depth up front with injuries to guards Mike Gibson and Max Unger.

Wrotto had played mostly offensive tackle during training camp when Alex Gibbs was the offensive line coach, but in the past he had played mostly guard for Seattle and should be a capable back-up for the team moving forward.

The team has not confirmed this move, or the corresponding roster moves that need to be made to add Wrotto to the roster.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post writes that the Broncos only had one sack and no turnovers in a 24-17 loss at Jacksonville last week, and would like to create more turnovers.

Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post says the Broncos can’t let the losses multiply. Denver will be aiming for a victory against Seattle at home, otherwise they might be staring at opening the season 0-6. After Seattle, the Broncos host Indianapolis then travel to Tennessee and Baltimore, before returning home and Hosting the New York Jets.
