Finally healthy, safety Lano Hill helping create sparks on Seahawks defense

Seahawks safety Lano Hill has struggled to stay on the field in his brief three-year career in the NFL. Now that he’s finally healthy, though, he’s part of a defense that features some of the most talent it’s had in years. Included among that talent is star pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, whose contributions to the defense have been evident since he first arrived in Seattle. “I mean, you could see that from Jadeveon Clowney. You could see it, the sparks,” Hill told 710 ESPN Seattle’s Danny, Dave and Moore. Who will star for the Seahawks in Week 3? Even with established talent like Clowney on the field, there are still… Read More

Who will star for the Seahawks in Week 3?

The Seahawks have had a couple standout players through the first two weeks of the season. Jadeveon Clowney was, unsurprisingly, the story of the Seahawks’ Week 1 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. The three-time Pro Bowl defensive end was acquired by Seattle in a trade just days before the start of the regular season and finished the game with two tackles, one pass defended and one sack. Notebook: Ziggy Ansah full participant at practice Wednesday It was quarterback Russell Wilson who dominated headlines after a Week 2 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The veteran threw for 300 yards and three touchdowns and completed a career-high 82.9 percent of his pass… Read More

What sets Mariners OF Kyle Lewis apart from other prospects?

In his first three series in a Mariners uniform, Kyle Lewis has been a sight to behold. With an opposite-field home run on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh, the 24-year-old rookie outfielder pushed his season total to five homers. That’s five homers in just eight games, mind you. Drayer: Kyle Lewis’ torrid start a reminder why he was a top pick Lewis has been a bit of a revelation for anybody watching the Mariners since he arrived as a Sept. 10 call-up from Double-A Arkansas. Lewis was Seattle’s 2016 first-round draft pick but had a very rough start to his career due to a catastrophic knee injury in 2016. As a… Read More

Notebook: Seahawks DE Ziggy Ansah practices, expected to play vs Saints

The Seahawks know they won’t be facing Drew Brees when they kick off their Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field Sunday; the longtime veteran underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in this thumb and is expected to be sidelined for up to six weeks. Football 101: Russell Wilson’s historic game What they don’t know – at least not now, and not for certain – is who will replace Brees under center. The likely candidate is Teddy Bridgewater, who not only filled in for Brees in Week 2 but who was also made the league’s highest-paid backup when the Saints re-signed the former first-round pick… Read More

Football 101: Russell Wilson’s historic game and perfect pass to DK Metcalf

A lot has been said about Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson after his huge game in Seattle’s Week 2 win over the Steelers. And for good reason.

We at 710 ESPN Seattle took to Twitter on Tuesday for help in figuring just how rare those numbers are, and Vincent Verhei of FootballOutsiders.com came through with this pretty telling stat: In the history of the NFL, there have been only 18 times where a quarterback has finished a game… Read More
