Seahawks Friday morning links

First off, if you missed it from late last night, Brandon Browner, who is in the final year of his deal, got a raise. We don’t know how much yet, but what we do know is that this is simply a raise, not a contract extension. I get into this more in the above link, but that is certainly not the normal way things play out in the NFL, so it’ll be interesting to hear Pete Carroll’s take on this the next time we talk to him.

The big story at Day 1 of training camp was obviously Percy Harvin’s injury, which took some of the positive feelings out of what was otherwise a pretty exciting first day of camp.

Sports Illustrated takes a look at what Harvin’s injury could mean to the Seahawks.

Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports points out that, if Harvin were to miss a lot of time, Golden Tate looks ready to take on a big role in the final year of his rookie deal.

And ESPN’s Adam Schefter has an update on Harvin, saying he’ll see Dr. Bryan Kelly in New York on Tuesday to evaluate the hip. And if that name sounds vaguely familiar, that’s because Kelly is the same doctor who has been treating Alex Rodriguez.

And in an odd bit of timing, both Grantland.com and TheMMQB.com have stories on stopping the read option, and obviously both include mentions of the Seahawks.
