Last week, Seahawks wide receiver Mike Williams disclosed that for the first time this off-season, he and some of his teammates were organizing group worouts for this week. “I got a text message this week–I’m not going to reveal who it’s from–but we got a guy up here trying to organize a two-day mini-camp next week in Seattle,” Williams told The Brock & Salk Show on 710 ESPN Seattle last Tuesday.
One doesn’t have to be Columbo to reach the conclusion that, in all likelihood, “the guy” Williams is referring to as the workout organizer is quarterback Matthew Hasselbeck.
Hasselbeck has a copy of the team’s playbook, and has been working out with several Seahawks, including throwing passes to tight end John Carlson, Hasselbeck has lived in the Seattle area for over a decade, and likely knows which local facilities would work best for the work the players intend to do, Hasselbeck organizing the workouts makes some sense, but ESPN’s John Clayton wonders why Charlie Whitehurst, the only quarterback the Seahawks have under contract at the moment, hasn’t taken an active role in organizing these workouts.
