Seahawks morning links: Bailey still learning

By now you’ve no doubt heard that undrafted rookie Alvin Bailey is making quite an impression. He’s currently Seattle’s No. 2 left tackle behind Russell Okung, and he more than held his own against the Chargers last week.

But, if you ask offensive line coach Tom Cable, you’ll hear that Bailey has a long ways to go.

“In terms of running the football, he had a huge intensity problem in college,” Cable said when asked about Bailey being undrafted. “He would appear in film like he loved to stand up and pass protect, but here that’s only half the battle. It’s not too difficult to see why he was available to us where he was.”

And Bailey won’t argue, saying, “I’m nowhere close to being ready to play yet when the whistle starts blowing for real.”

Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle has a good roster breakdown, looking at the numbers crunch on both offense and defense.

Tim Booth of the AP has this feature on Earl Thomas, who might be the most important player on the Seahawks defense.

Eric Williams of the TNT chats with cornerback Byron Maxwell, who has had a good camp, but who also knows he needs to stay healthy to make an impact.

Seattle Times columnist Jerry Brewery writes about Red Bryant, who is looking to return to his 2011 form after a subpar season last year.

Not a Seahawks-specific story, but this piece by Andrew Brandt a former NFL exec who, amongst other jobs, was the Packers cap guy for a decade, gives a very good inside look at the affect injuries have on a team from a business perspective.
