2 tryout players signed-LEO- Mayowa, TE- Marshall

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • http://blog.seahawks.com/2013/05/13/vic ... wa-signed/
    Tight end Victor Marshall and defensive end Benson Mayowa, who participated in the Seahawks’ rookie minicamp over the weekend on a tryout basis, were signed today, the team announced.

    Rookie linebacker Ramon Buchanan, who was signed as a free agent after the NFL Draft, was released.



    Mayowa is pretty athletic, but never hit his potential at IDAHO. That can be partly blamed on the sub-standard coaching he received. I think he could be a good developmental LEO to stash on the practice squad to develop further.

    As an Idaho fan -assuming he sticks around into fall camp, it will be fun to watch Toomer and Mayowa in the preseason games this AUG.

    It is. Pete called him by his first name, Benson, in the presser.

  • That's cool. He must show crazy quickness, 'cause he's listed at 6'3" 236 lbs. That's about Kam size!

  • I'm a Vandal, loved Benson's athleticism, remember watching him as a freshman and thinking, this guy is gonna be great...I believe our coaching staff let this young man down, and am stoked he is going to get his shot to be a Hawk.

  • Went to high school with Victor Marsall. Dude was super fast on the track. He also used to be skinny as a toothpick, but im guessing he's put on some muscle in the past six years. Juanita High School has 2 guys on the Seahawks, this is rad.

    Victor was also named Class 4-A All-Kingco First Team as a wide receiver during his senior year for the Juanita Rebels. He caught 29 balls in eight games for 633 yards and five touchdowns that year from then-quarterback Bryan Walters – that’s the same Bryan Walters that is now a wide receiver on the Seahawks roster.



    Nice background story on a couple of kids working to beat the odds and make the team. :th2thumbs: at seahawks.com
