Morning links: Ex-Hawk Grant throws Mora under the bus

A lot of the players have been talking about the difference between how player-friendly Camp Carroll has been, and how Jim Mora ran things last year, which players said was a pretty tough camp.

Well, we get more confirmation on this from former Seahawks safety Deon Grant, now with the New York Giants, who tells Newsday that Mora lost some of the players in 2009 because he ran such a tough camp.

“A lot of guys were fatigued out, a lot of guys were lost mentally because they didn’t expect the camp to be as long as it was as far as how long it went on and the amount of breaks we didn’t receive,” Grant said. “We didn’t receive any breaks. You have to find something within you to make it fun and enjoy what you do, but a lot of the fun was gone from it because of how hard camp was.”
