  • Interesting player. Inconsistent at Idaho, but clearly a great athlete. Maybe with competant coaching he can develop into a good player.

    #Seahawks have signed WR Justin Veltung per league personnel notice. He participated in the team's rookie mini-camp as a tryout player.

  • Two signings in two days...one roster spot was open by releasing Portis, I wonder who gets cut?

    Probably Fells.

  • Damn, he looks fast as hell on a couple of those returns. Liked the punt return around 2:30-ish.

    Maybe they didn't sign the OL player afterall. From what I can tell only that one source reported the OL signee, there hasn't been official word on him on the official site either.

  • Will he be the first sign-and-cut player of 2013? We shall see.

  • This signing reflects, in part, their continuing commitment to find versatile wide receivers who can also contribute to special teams.

  • One of my best friends was his Veltungs quarterback back in high school as cascade Christian and they still hang out all the time. Before the draft veltung had workouts with Seattle and ran high 4.3 40's and Pete told him way before the draft he was going to end up a seahawk. Not really breaking news, just kind of cool hearing him talk to us about all of this a while ago and now seeing it actually happening for him. Obviously I'm rooting for the guy. Super cool dude, really a stand up guy.

  • I like it, he looks fast and agile. He would be good insurance for KR/PR backup. Fieldgulls has a piece on him.

    Horrible QB play really diminished his impact in his junior year and he was hampered by injuries as a senior. This guy possesses NFL athleticism though, and I'm interested to see if it can translate to an NFL field. I'm really happy for him. Hopefully he can make an impact on special teams.

    I'm also encouraged by Kippy Brown's remarks about Justin's learning skills and how bright he is. I think consolidating around a group of smart, tough, and explosive players will change the dynamics of the Seahawk passing game. This is a very capable group of receivers Brown has to work with this year. I'm optimistic Brown will end up with a WR corp capable of adjusting their game day routes on the fly to victimise defenses. This team already has the quarterback in place to exploit defenses.

    I wouldn't be so quick to make that judgment. It depends on how many WR's they keep. :D

    Definitely a longshot with Harper in the mix. I don't see homeboy Kearse sticking around much longer.

  • I could see it happening from a special teams perspective. I think he'll be a good returner. Maybe Carroll will keep him just to save Harvin's body from kick returns. That what I think he should do anyway. We'll see.

  • There are so many varied & interesting athletes battling it out for those last couple of wide receiver spots. It's going to be a fun training camp & preseason.

    Bates, Veltung, Williams, Kearse, and Harper all have some unique attributes. Swain, Martin, & Walters could be helped by being a bit more proven on special teams.

    Thanks for the background information. I was wondering why his Stats were hurting his last two years when he was obviously tearing it up his sophomore year.
