With the final hours of Friday winding down, the start of football games every weekend until February is within sight. That in mind, SeahawksGab presents the “Friday Three Wide”, taking its reader interactive “Seahawks Sound Off” into overdrive.
Newly signed rookie left tackle Russell Okung is the focus of the first of the Three Wide’s poll questions. Okung’s contract, reportedly in the neighborhood of $30 million guaranteed, cost the highly touted rookie five days of practices; however, he remains atop the depth chart in charge of protecting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s blind side. There’s fear about rushing him into things too quickly though, especially when thinking about possibly putting him in a position to get hurt.
