Phillip Adams played the past two seasons with the Raiders, but in Thursday night’s preseason finale the fifth-year cornerback is expected to be the nickel back in the Seahawks’ No. 1 defense and looking to prove he deserves a spot on the 53-man roster.
Ricardo Lockette’s first attempt at covering kickoffs was anything but special. But the Seahawks’ fourth-year wide receiver has developed into what coach Pete Carroll calls “as exciting a player on our special teams as anybody we’ve got.”
For almost a month, the Seahawks’ defense played without Bobby Wagner as the middle linebacker and leading tackler recovered from a hamstring injury. But Wagner was back where he belongs in practice on Monday.
It’s just another preseason game, and the finale at that. But when the Seahawks play the Raiders in Oakland on Thursday night, Terrelle Pryor will be playing against the team that traded the QB to the Seahawks in April.
