RENTON Nazair Jones Color Rush Jersey , Wash. (AP) The number was different on Friday No. 49 instead of No. 18. So were the colors, trading black and gold for dark blue and white.The effort and excitement from Shaquem Griffin? That remained the same.We had to slow him down on some stuff early. In the walkthrough he was going too hard. We had to chill him out a little bit, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.The next chapter of Griffins football career got underway with the first day of Seattles three-day minicamp for rookies. In a way, it was a welcome return to normalcy for Griffin after months where the focus was strictly on what hes overcome missing his left hand and whether he would be given a chance in the NFL.For one afternoon even if it was simply in shorts, his new jersey and a helmet Griffin could just be a football player.Its kind of fun to be honest. I was ready to get back to football. Im pretty sure all the guys that are here were ready to get back to football, Griffin said. When youre away from football, you have to do all the drills and the combine and the pro day. The only thing you are really here to do is play football. So when you get a chance to go to the draft and that part is over with, and you get signed on to a team and youre ready to go, now its back to everything youve been doing to get to this point and thats play football.The day was filled mostly with basics, as Griffin and the rest of Seattles draft class and rookie free agent signings learned how Carroll runs things in Seattle. Considering how the past week has been, even the mundane fundamentals were welcomed by Griffin.Outside of the quarterbacks drafted in the first round 12th Fan Color Rush Jersey , there was no bigger story in the draft than where Griffin would go. He was a star in college at Central Florida and deserving of a shot in the NFL, especially after stealing the spotlight with his performance at the scouting combine.It was Seattle that eventually gave Griffin his NFL chance, drafting him in the fifth round and reuniting him with his twin brother Shaquill, who was drafted by the Seahawks in 2017 and became a starting cornerback in his rookie season. But with the pick came an avalanche of requests and attention for Griffin and the Seahawks to filter. And in the grand scheme, Griffin is still a draft pick that must find a role as a weakside linebacker and special teams contributor.Its extremely important for that turn to occur, Carroll said. Its been a great story, it will always be a great story, but right now hes got work to do and hes got focus hes got to generate. Hes got a lot of people tugging on him and for all of the right reasons and all of that, but I know that hes very determined and we are to help him in his pursuit of making the club and making a spot and all of that. Hes like everybody else, hes got to compete like everybody.Carroll did note that Griffin seemed to have a little better understanding of what he was going to face arriving for the rookie minicamp likely thanks to some tips from his brother. While this weekend is just three days of creating the foundation, the next step for Griffin will come later this month when the Seahawks move into the next phases of their offseason program and integrate more of the rookie class.Its been a whirlwind but thats over with Tyler Lockett Color Rush Jersey , Griffin said. Its time for us to get to work and make sure I give high competition. Make sure I get a chance for the coaches to see who I am. Make sure I can do my best to make sure I can make my players better and help anybody I can. With the Seattle Seahawks season having come to a close, the team can now start signing players to future contracts. In short, a future contract is how a team can claim (or retain) a players rights in the time between the end of the season and the beginning of the new league year. Once the new league year begins in March, their salary and roster spot will count towards Seattles 90-man roster and salary cap. Until then, the Seahawks simply have their rights. (You can find a great, extended primer on future contracts here.)The nine players Seattle signed to future contracts on Tuesday were nine of the 10 players who finished the season on the teams practice squad: Keenan Reynolds (WR), Caleb Scott (WR), Simeon Thomas (CB), Marcus Henry (iOL), Marwin Evans (S), Tyrone Swoopes (TE) Frank Clark Color Rush Jersey , Justin Currie (LB), Jeremy Boykins (CB) and Jordan Roos (iOL). The one player who finished the season on the Seahawks practice squad and did not sign a future contract was quarterback Alex McGough. Seattles seventh round selection a year ago, McGough competed with Austin Davis for the backup quarterback job in Augusta competition that ended when the Seahawks acquired Brett Hundley. McGough is now a free agent, though he could still sign a future contract with Seattle.As noted by The Seattle Times Bob Condotta, among others, McGough may look to sign with a team in one of the upstart football leagues, in an effort to gain live game experience. Since these leagues wont run concurrently with the NFL, McGough could theoretically play football in the spring before landing in camp with the Seahawks (or any other NFL team).
