looks like Justin Britt will compete for RT article quote by Clare Farnsworth
''Justin Britt, an ornery, nasty blocker from Missouri who will compete with Michael Bowie for the right tackle spot that opened when Breno Giacomini signed with the New York Jets in free agency.''
Britt, meanwhile, is a 6-6, 325-pounder who plays the game the way line coach Tom Cable wants it to be played. It was Cable who used the terms ornery and nasty to describe Britt. And he was smiling when he did it.
“He’s an ornery, nasty guy that plays the game the right way,” Cable said.
Asked about the tags, Britt offered, “I went into (last) season wanting the guys I went against to remember me. It was my last year, so I wanted to leave a mark in their mind and have them remember me. If nasty is the word you want to use, then I’m nasty.”
Nasty in the way the Seahawks like their linemen.
“He’s no-nonsense,” Cable said. “That’s our kind of guy. Guys that love to compete.
Cable was targeting two linemen with the last pick in the second round. One went earlier, but Britt was there.
“So it was great,” Cable said. “With the departure of Breno, filling that need and then creating the right competition so that we get a good player at right tackle, this worked out perfectly.
“It’s a perfect hit for us at what we need to have right now.”
