CHAWK LINES -- Seahawks OTAs & minicamp

Tom Cable says four guys are competing at center — the position “that certainly has the most uncertainty.”

Among the Seattle Times’ impressions from Tuesday, Tyler Lockett and the players’ overall speed impressed special teams coach Brian Schneider.

Derrick Coleman says this special-teams group is the best the Hawks have had since he has been there.

Richard Sherman had a couple of great retorts for his critics on Tuesday.

Cary Williams explains why he prefers Pete Carroll’s Seahawks to Chip Kelly’s Eagles.

Anthony McCoy reminded everyone he is still around and has the talent to make the team after missing the past two seasons with Achilles injuries.

Marshawn Lynch is putting a little Beast Mode into “Call of Duty.” Lynch said, “I’ve been in the Super Bowl, movies, music videos, Madden. But to have your own character in Duty is, I mean, it’s almost like you arrived.”

In contract news …

The Seahawks are re-signing backup QB Tarvaris Jackson.

With Russell Wilson talks apparently stalled, the team is turning its focus to Bobby Wagner.

The Seahawks have offered Wilson a deal that would make him the No. 3 highest-paid QB in the league, according to John Clayton.

Seattle’s offer is similar to what Ben Roethlisberger got from Pittsburgh, according to Danny O’Neil. That was a five-year deal worth $99 million, including a $31 million signing bonus and $65 million over the next three years.

Former agent Joel Corry, who has written about Wilson’s contract situation a lot this offseason, looks at the Seahawks’ contract philosophy and offers up a suggested deal.

Michael Bennett, in a semi-holdout over his contract, has been at the VMAC even though he has not chosen to participate on the field. What a weirdo.

The Seahawks reportedly checked into former Packers receiver James Jones after the Raiders cut him last month. They have upgraded well through the draft and should put together an improved corps this year (very possibly minus Jermaine Kearse).
