The Seattle Seahawks began training camp on Thursday, and we've got the photos to prove it. Unlike game shots, training camp photos don't show much. Photographers look for action shots, and try to create some kind of story out of mundane drills. However, these photos are gold, and filled with candid shots of players learning the ropes.
Each day, as long as the material allows us to, we'll be posting photos and captions from training camp. From balls hitting guys in the face to players falling down and going boom, we'll look for the best. This is the first installment.
Charlie Whitehurst shows off his new throwing motion. Josh Portis seems impressed.
The caption says Dominique Edison made the catch. Never believe the caption.
Ricardo Lockette makes a nice grab. Judging by the look on his face, I'm going to assume Earl Thomas is just out of frame. In related news, Lockette is no longer with us. He's dead.
This is how you make a Caz Piurowski sandwich. I have no idea what this drill accomplishes, but the end result is delicious.
Marshawn Lynch's catch face! Sadly, Lynch kept popping balls during drills.
If football doesn't work out for Josh Portis, he has a budding career as a baby deliverer lined up.
Portis' throw face is terrifying.
Zac Lee demonstrates his troll face. U MAD?
As a child, Byron Maxwell was taught that blowing on the ball makes it spiral. Nobody tell him it's not true. It would be like telling a kid Santa isn't real.
John Schneider still working the phones
Philadelphia: Eagles front office!
Schneider: Yeah, how much for that Kolb kid?
Philadelphia: 60 million, a draft pick, a young star, your first born child and your soul. No refunds.
Schneider: We'll take him. Ship to: 1 Cardinals Drive, Glendale, AZ 85305.
Minnesota: Vikings here, how may we help you?
Schneider: We'll take one of everything.
Schneider: You heard me.
Schneider: Poison pill this.
Ben Obomanu is impressed by Red Bryant's ability to chop down trees with his bare hands.
Carroll: You mean they drive around in circles and do nothing but turn left?
Tate: That's what I said, coach!
Richard Sherman gets into a fight with the football. You're doing it wrong, rook.
John Carlson melts the camera lens with his blue steel.
