CHAWK LINES -- Training camp new

With training camp starting in one week, let’s look at some pre-camp player reports:

Michael Bennett is griping about his contract yet again. But don’t believe him when he says, “Just get rid of me.”

Russell Wilson, who now looks almost as hulked up as Robert Turbin, told Q13 Fox: “We’ll try to bring back Super Bowl 51 if we can. We’ll do everything we can, every day. That’s a promise.”

Justin Britt’s switch to center is one of the major camp stories to watch.

Pete Carroll reminds us why the Seahawks think J’Marcus Webb will succeed with them.

Can Thomas Rawls take over for Marshawn Lynch — even if he doesn’t play in the preseason?

John Clayton projects Rawls to get 16-17 carries a game, with the other backs getting six or seven.

Christine Michael — among those trying to replace Lynch — admits, “I was just being a young guy, just being a knucklehead.”

Like last year, all eyes will be on Jimmy Graham — from camp through the season.

Beyond Graham, the Seahawks are stacked at tight end.

Jermaine Kearse, also coming off his best season, must now prove he is worth the contract the Seahawks gave him. He and Tyler Lockett remain big keys to the passing attack.

Meanwhile, Field Gulls reminds you not to forget about Paul Richardson.

Trevone Boykin, Frank Clark and Nick Vannett lead the Seahawks with the most to gain, per looks at Boykin’s shot to be the backup QB.

The only starting position open on defense is strongside linebacker.

How will Jeremy Lane respond after getting a big pay day?
