Seahawks want Rashaad Penny Jersey to be a three-down back
The Seahawks got their first look at first-round running back Rashaad Penny on the field during their three-day rookie minicamp and the first reviews of his work are positive ones.
Coach Pete Carroll said the team focused on putting Penny in a variety of postions in and out of the backfield during the practice sessions and found the rookie can do whatever we need to do in the throwing game. Those skills as a pass catcher make it easier to keep Penny on the field, but he’ll also need to prove adept as a pass blocker and that’s something the Seahawks will have to find out down the line.

We’re gonna work real hard with his pass protection and make sure that he’s up to speed there, Carroll said, via the Tacoma News Tribune. We’d like to see if we can make him available to us on all three downs. Kind of like we use Chris [Carson].

Sean Manaea’s no-hitter against the Red Sox was just his latest strong start to lower his ERA to 1.23. His was the seventh no-hitter in Oakland A’s history, and their first since Dallas Braden’s perfect game in 2010. The lefty is throwing with slightly less velocity this year, but he’s generating more called strikes, ground-ball outs and popups, and getting the benefit of a significantly improved A’s defense. — Kahrl
