Preseason Week 4: Seattle Seahawks (3-0, preseason) vs. Oakland Raiders (1-2, preseason)
• Seattle made the decision to start rookie Russell Wilson at quarterback. Wilson wowed in his start against Kansas City last week, passing for 185 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the first half. He also rushed for 58 yards.
“This is an extremely competitive person and the drives him in the way he prepares,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said in a press conference. “There are a lot of things he does that you can’t coach.”
• The Seahawks also made the decision to cut wide receiver Terrell Owens and hang on to Braylon Edwards. Owens struggled with drops in the preseason, while Edwards has looked impressive.
- Last year’s starter at quarterback, Tarvaris Jackson, was traded to the Bills for a draft pick. The Bills cut quarterback Vince Young after the move.
What’s next: Seattle opens the regular season at Arizona Sunday, Sept. 9.
