CHAWK LINES -- Seahawks OTAs & minicamp

Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman both backed Russell Wilson in the wake of rift reports.

Bennett also shared more of his life philosophies (most of which make great sense).

Sherman came across as happy and ready to be a team player again.

Sherman’s attitude was one of several reasons Pete Carroll called it a “very successful offseason.”

Carroll said Jimmy Graham and Earl Thomas were the most impressive players this offseason.

Thomas is way ahead in his recovery and is already eyeing a third contract.

Carroll and Kam Chancellor both talked about a possible contract extension in the coming weeks.

George Fant is the definite incumbent at left tackle and seems set to get the chance to remain the starter.

Coming off a disappointing season, Jeremy Lane has “really applied himself” and is “really going for” the starting right corner job, Carroll said.

Shaq Griffin has “probably one of the best corner minds that we’ve had for a young guy around here,” Kris Richard said.

As expected, DeShawn Shead is unlikely to be ready for the season.

Dion Jordan had knee surgery after signing with Seattle, meaning he seems like an even longer shot to make the team.

Tanner McEvoy could find himself on PUP or IR when camp starts.

Tony McDaniel, who lost his spot to a couple of rookies, signed with New Orleans.

The Seahawks remembered former punter Rick Tuten, who died last weekend at age 52.
