RENTON, Wash. (AP) — For one day, Pete Carroll wasn’t hopping around with the vigor and excitement that was so apparent a season ago.
Apparently even the Seattle Seahawks head coach needs to ease his way into training camp after a whirlwind start to free agency that saw the Seahawks land quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, offensive lineman Robert Gallery and wide receiver Sidney Rice.
The Seahawks opened camp on Thursday with a pair of walkthrough practices. But along with Carroll’s reserved demeanor, two other voices were noticeably absent: those of former quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and safety Lawyer Milloy.
Hasselbeck is now in Tennessee after agreeing to a deal with the Titans. Milloy is a free agent who has yet to sign with a team.
