Matt Calkins: This year’s Seahawks team has been unusually quiet

UPDATED: Fri., Aug. 16, 2019, 7:48 p.m.

This year’s subject of the HBO series “Hard Knocks” is the silver and black, and AB is reality-show gold. He has the potential to lead the sports headlines any time he opens his mouth, or really, anytime he leaves his house. This used to be the case for several Seahawks when they were the brashest, most mercurial team in the NFL. But now is there anyone you can picture piquing that kind of attention outside the lines?

Seahawks’ Pete Carroll is the NFL’s oldest head coach. You wouldn’t know it by watching him.

UPDATED: Fri., Aug. 16, 2019, 4:58 p.m.

Pete Carroll is starting his ninth season as coach of the Seattle Seahawks – two Super Bowl appearances, one championship, now two years into his first NFL rebuild – and coaching is maybe the one thing he takes more seriously than pickup basketball.

Seahawks hope Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny can form potent running duo

Chris Carson ran for more than 1,100 yards last year for the Seattle Seahawks. Still there is a good chance Carson will find himself sharing the workload this season with second-year back Rashaad Penny. Penny is primed for a potential breakout season as Carson’s complement and the Seahawks want to reap the benefits of having a potent rushing duo.

Seahawks may turn to committee approach at nickel back

The Seahawks may turn to a corner-by-committee strategy to replace Justin Coleman as their nickel back this season. Coleman signed a four-year deal with the Lions in free agency after serving as Seattle’s slot cornerback for the last two seasons. Now the Seahawks don’t have a single clear option to take over the role. Instead, they have four different cornerbacks vying for the job heading into the second preseason game.
