Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll made it clear that rookie third round quarterback Russell Wilson will compete with Matt Flynn and Tavaris Jackson in order to be the starting quarterback in 2012.
“He’s showed us enough,” Carroll said. “He’s in the competition. And that is going to tax us, as you know. It was already going to be taxing with two. But he’s shown us enough that we need to see where he fits in with these guys.”
During this weekends minicamp, Wilson threw over 400 passes.
“That’s an amazing load that we threw on him, but he handled it like he’s been here,” Carroll said. “And that was a great first sign, just about his willingness to prepare, hold all the information and use it quite well.”
Even though Wilson is a rookie, I truly believe he has a shot at being the Seahawks starter in 2012.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
