Over the past few months, the Seattle Seahawks have increasingly become ‘USC Pro’ with the editions of former Trojans head coach Pete Carroll and many from his staff at Southern Cal. When Seattle starts its minicamp tomorrow, the team will feature another former Trojan per a report from ESPN.com’s Mike Sando.
Mike Williams, the former 10th-overall selection in the 2005 N.F.L. Draft, will try out for a spot on the Seahawks’ roster.
Williams, 26, was a big-play threat at wide receiver for the Trojans under Carroll’s watch, but Williams fizzled upon entering the pro ranks. The six-foot-five target totalled just 44 catches and a mere two touchdowns in a combined 30 N.F.L regular-season games that saw Williams in Detroit, Tennessee and Oakland uniforms.
Defensive Back to Try Out as Well
Also from Sando’s report, Seattle will take a look at defensive back Kennard Cox. Cox, a free agent, appeared in four games for Jacksonville last season.
