Seahawks 'Believe' In Chris Carson Despite Fumbles

Sep 24, 2019 10:09 AM

Pete Carroll remains confident in Chris Carson despite the fact that the running back has lost a fumble in each of the Seattle Seahawks' three games.

"Because we do believe in him, we're going to continue to show him that," Carroll said. "He's a terrific football player, and we want to make sure and maintain that level of play from him so we'll work at it, work with him on it."

Carson's three fumbles don't include one from last week in Pittsburgh, when he was hit and upended right as he took a handoff from Russell Wilson. That fumble was officially attributed to Wilson.

"I just have to keep trying to get better," Carson said. "The defense is going to try and go after the ball so I have to be aware of that."

Seahawks No Longer Interested In Signing Antonio Brown

Sep 20, 2019 8:35 PM

The Seattle Seahawks had interest in Antonio Brown when he was released by the Oakland Raiders, but that does not appear to be the case now that he's a free agent again upon his release by the New England Patriots.

Since signing with the Patriots, there have been multiple sexual assault allegations against Brown.

“We’re pretty well set right now,” Carroll said Friday, via Gregg Bell of the News Tribune. “We kind of know where we’re going with that.”

Carroll’s reaction was similar to those of Sean Payton and Sean McVay, who were asked about their interest in Brown.

“Right now, where we are . . .I like our depth at that position,” Payton said, via Dianna Russini of ESPN. “I haven’t paid much attention. I’m focused on the guys here.”

“You always look into things,” McVay said, via quotes distributed by the team. “We evaluate, but with the situation we have specific to the receiver position, we couldn’t be happier with the guys that we do have.”

Doug Baldwin Has No Second Thoughts Over Retiring

Aug 27, 2019 7:58 AM

Doug Baldwin has no second thoughts about his decision to retire from the NFL.

According to the former Seattle Seahawks receiver, the process of deciding to retire began well before he suffered a slew of injuries during his final season.

"It was a process longer than just last year," Baldwin said. "I think when you come into the NFL or any entertainment business as a young person, you have to be selfish, you have to be self-centered because it's all about self-preservation in that arena. I'm not saying this is the general population of athletes and entertainers, but I think a lot of us struggle with the concept of having a god complex, thinking that we're invincible and that we're immortal in some ways, and when you start to come to grips with the reality of being mortal and knowing that this is all going to come to an end at some point, you start to see the world differently. Perspective changes. I've been going through that process for a number of years. It actually started my second year in the NFL, understanding that eventually there's got to be a plan."

For Baldwin, the challenge isn't about missing the sport that he has played for most of his life.

"It's more so that my identity has been wrapped up in football since I was 6 years old," he said. "Navigating not having that, not having the instant feedback and the false affirmation of what my value was in the world because I had caught touchdowns on some days, I'm navigating that as a human on a very human level. That process has been challenging to say the least, but it's also been a rewarding one because it's allowed me to refocus my passions but also to re-understand who I am in the greater scheme of things and how I fit into the world."
