CHAWK LINES -- Week in review

Bob Condotta recapped the Week in Russell Wilson Reports.

Michael Bennett, who lives in Hawaii in the offseason, says he might hold out for an upgraded deal: “I don’t mind staying home for a little while.” It’s an empty threat, and he knows it.

Cliff Avril said contract stuff won’t affect how the Seahawks come together on the field.

Danny Kelly of Field Gulls put together a nice piece on the Seahawks’ focus on “sleep as a weapon.” This dovetails with an old Vince Lombardi quote that Jimmy Johnson loved to repeat: “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.”

Frank Clark was at the rookie symposium, where he hopefully learned a few lessons on how to stay out of trouble. He said he is not dwelling on the past and is looking forward to finding his role with the Hawks.

Rob Rang wondered whether the Seahawks might be interested in intriguing, though slightly troubled, left tackle Isaiah Battle in the supplemental draft. Probably would require a third-round pick.

Chris Matthews — who made a name for himself nationally in the NFC title game and Super Bowl — has been making the rounds, telling 710 ESPN the key to his success was learning how to practice the way the Hawks like it. Matthews also is on a fan tour of Washington that includes Blitz, Sea Gals and the drum line.

Wilson was at his passing camp in Madison, Wis., this weekend — one of seven camps he conducts around the country.

Earl Thomas and Christine Michael returned home to Texas to host football camps.

Justin Britt held his football camp in his hometown of Lebanon, Mo.

Everyone loves a winner: The Hawks sold out training camp dates in 90 minutes.

Doug Baldwin said he wants to be more involved on special teams, blocking for new return ace Tyler Lockett.

Entering the final year of his contract, Robert Turbin clearly is thinking about staying in Seattle long term — based on his new partnership.

John Glenn, a quality control coach for the Hawks who is helping new LBs coaches Michael Barrow and Lofa Tatupu, talks about his role.

Byron Maxwell talked about the senseless massacre at the church in his hometown of Charleston, S.C., and about the unchanging prevalence of racism in the South. Great depth of thought from the former Legion of Boomer.

Michael Sinclair, the No. 2 sacker in Seahawks history, reflects on his time in Seattle as he prepares to coach the D-line of the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Drew Brees is “convinced” he will win another Super Bowl, even without Jimmy Graham.

Percy Harvin, now in Buffalo, says he wants to be more than just a “gadget guy,” as he says he was with the Seahawks.
