CHAWK LINES -- Training camp new

Some observations from Day 6 of camp from those who were there (and other features):

Jesse Williams, a second-round talent the Hawks picked in the fifth round in 2013 due to knee problems, says he hopes he got rid of his bad injury luck when he had his cancerous kidney removed this offseason. It would be a great story if he somehow became a contributor this season, but don’t get your hopes up.

Jermaine Kearse apparently is doing his best to fend off Seattle’s younger, cheaper receivers, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times.

Stephen Cohen of the Seattle P-I wrote about a couple of receivers named Doug: Baldwin talked about Percy Harvin and mentoring young receivers, and McNeil worked at cornerback.

John Boyle of wrote more about Baldwin, who said Tyler Lockett is “a lot more polished than I was as a rookie.”

Boyle also relayed rookie Frank Clark’s comments about playing 3-technique and learning from Michael Bennett.

Tom Cable told KJR-AM that Lemuel Jeanpierre is the favorite to win the center job; he thinks Justin Britt is becoming a consistent right tackle; and Russell Okung is very focused on the season, not his contract.

Kam Chancellor apparently wants most of his 2015 and 2016 salaries paid up front before he returns to the team. Very unlikely.
