Branch OUT, Milloy is Back and Seattle Brings in 15 for Minicamp Tryouts

A busy first day of mandatory minicamp for the Seattle Seahawks at their Renton, Wash. training facilities.

  • First, Danny O’Neil reported for the Seattle Times, that veteran wide receiver Deion Branch will not participate in the three-day activities due to what is being called “a basic arthroscopic surgery on his knee.”  It’s the same knee he injured in Seattle’s last playoff appearance in 2007, a 42-20 drubbing on the road courtesy of the Green Bay Packers.  The surgery is the third on the same knee for Branch.
  • Also from O’Neil, the Seahawks resigned safety Lawyer Milloy to a one-year deal.   The 36-year-old joins a safety corps of rookies Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor and James Brindley (undrafted free agent signee) in addition to three-year veteran Jamar Adams.
  • And for the trifecta from O’Neil, Seattle brought in 15 individuals for minicamp tryouts.  The list can be found on O’Neil’s post at the SeattleTimes.com.
