Morning links: Terrill still making QB’s dance

Dave Boling of the TNT profiles defensive tackle Craig Terrill. At 30 years old, the 7th year pro is still working hard to be a productive player in the league, and offers Seattle versatility with his ability to play both nose tackle and 3-tech.


(Defensive line coach Dan) Quinn said Terrill is having “a great camp” and is stronger than he’s been in some time. At 30, Terrill is trying to sustain his career with a rookie’s hunger and a vet’s savvy. He’s already beaten the career odds against an undersized sixth-round draft pick.

“I’ve been very blessed, for sure,” he said. “I think that every day I get to walk in this building and play football. It’s still a game for me and I still love playing it.”
