Morning links: Williams looking for a fresh start

I talked to University of Washington product Reggie Williams about his tryout with the Seahawks next week. Williams said he’s excited about the opportunity, and looking forward to putting the incidents that kept him out of the league in 2009 behind him.


“Me, personally, you just learn from it and become a better person. When you make a mistake you just learn from it and become a better man, a better father and a better husband overall, and just keep pressing on.

“It’s definitely in my past. It was unfortunate that it happened. But it happened, and I have (owned) up to it, and I’m trying to come out of it. … It was a great time and a sad time, but I loved it.”

According to NFL Network personnel guru Gil Brandt, Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and quarterback coach Jedd Firsch worked Clausen out for three hours immediately after his workout.

West Bunting of the National Football Post evaluates Clausen’s performance, bad weather teams might avoid him because of his small hands.

ESPN’s Todd McShay interviews Clausen in this link. It’s pretty interesting to see McShay, who’s been very critical of Clausen, squirm a little bit as he interview the Notre Dame quarterback.

Mike Mayock of the NFL Network says Clausen helped himself on Friday, and doesn’t see him falling beyond the No. 17 pick.

Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated said Clausen’s workout was solid but not spectacular.
