A day that began with some prominent subtractions from Seattle’s roster ended with a definitive statement: Rookie Russell Wilson will start the season at quarterback. “He’s earned this job,” coach Pete Carroll said in a teleconference with reporters. And with that, the rest of a busy Seahawks Sunday was rendered a footnote. Releasing veteran receiver Terrell Owens after three weeks? Not all that shocking, considering he dropped as many passes as he caught (two) in his two exhibition games. The pending trade of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to Buffalo? The writing was on the wall regarding his lack of a future in Seattle for weeks.
RENTON, Wash. – Terrell Owens’ reputation preceded him in Seattle.

That’s tabloid fodder, though, background noise that won’t have a thing to do with whether the man makes the Seahawks’ roster at the ripe age of 38. When Owens suits up for the Seahawks tonight in Denver, the only part of his past that’s going to matter is the work he put in to prepare for this opportunity. And boy, does he look ready, whether it’s running routes in practice, signing autographs shirtless after practice or being timed running 40 yards in 4.45 seconds during his Seahawks tryout the first week of August.
