Following the conclusion of rookie camp Sunday, coach Pete Carroll announced that third-round pick Russell Wilson will be in the hunt for the Seahawks' starting quarterback job.
"He showed us enough," said Carroll. "He's in the competition." Carroll praised Wilson's preparation, "terrific arm," and early grasp of Seattle's West Coast offense while confirming he'll be given an opportunity to start on Opening Day. "I'd hoped that, and we confirmed it in these three days," Carroll said. "He left really no question about he needs to be involved in the competition."
