Observations from Renton

by: Mike Parker

As some of you noted in the comments of the previous post, Mike Sando put up 10 interesting observations from Seahawks minicamp today.

No need to summarize a summary, but it seems like WR Deon Butler's name popped up at least three times in the midst of Sando's post - and this particular play was first on his list:

Third-round choice Deon Butler diving to catch a 50-yard touchdown pass after outrunning cornerback Kevin Hobbs.
And apparently, Bobby Engram and his wife put in good words for Butler. Bobby and Butler both attended Penn State, though obviously years apart. Perhaps Butler could step in as a speedy slot option?

In more good news, Sando noted that Leroy Hill played "without any animosity" towards his recently-ended contract situation.

As far as Aaron Curry is concerned, he reportedly "looks the part," though it's of course very early to tell to what extent. Expectations are definitely high.
