77 hopeful Seahawks take to the field for day 1 of rookie mini-camp
RENTON, Wash. -- Entering his eighth year at the helm, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wasn't the only one happy Friday to shift his focus back to football.
Shaquem Griffin was among the 77 players who took to the field in Renton on Friday afternoon looking to secure a roster spot.
Shaquem, the brother of Seahawks' cornerback Shaquil Griffin, was born with amniotic band syndrome. He lost his left hand when he was four.
But on Friday, Shaquem said he's ready for the next chapter.
Carroll said former University of Washington Husky Will Dissley also impressed early on.
Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril are among the veterans who are now gone. There are big shoes to fill and with two days left in rookie camp, Carroll likes what he's seeing so far.
Carroll also raved about rookie cornerback Tre Flowers and first round draft pick Rashaad Penny.
