Johnson and John Clay, OLs Colin Miller, Kyle Jolly, John Malecki, Trevis Turner and Keith Williams, WRs Armand Robinson, Wes Lyons and Tyler Grisham, TE Jamie McCoy and PK Swayze Waters.

Footballguys view: Grisham has been a Steelers camp hand as a good possession receiver for a few years running now. He could be signed by another team. Harvey, Lyons, and Robinson are good practice squad candidates.

  Seahawks | Mora impressed with several defensive linemen    Wed Jun 10, 06:29 PM

Mike Sando, of ESPN.com, reports Seattle Seahawks head coach Jim Mora said he has been impressed with DE Lawrence Jackson, DE Darryl Tapp and DE Baraka Atkins during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Sando said he mentioned Jackson and Tapp, and Mora added Atkins, so the versatile DE from Miami might get a chance to break into the rotation this year. Mora said it's time for them to step up their games, so it sounds like he expects to be impressed and will be disappointed if they don't stand out in camp this year.
