Seahawks’ receiver corps is about to get even better

Golden Tate’s one-handed touchdown catch was the most outstanding play made by a Seahawks receiver Sunday against Atlanta.

It wasn’t the only one, though. Far from it.

“There were really, really tough plays that they made,” coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Brock and Danny” Monday.

There were a pair of receptions covering more than 30 yards by Tate, who finished with a career-high 106 yards. Jermaine Kearse had two long catches himself, one coming on the double-pass touchdown and another he hauled in with one and while a defender was draped all over him. Doug Baldwin added 76 yards on five catches, one of his most productive games of the season.

“It was a great game for the receivers,” Carroll said.

Not bad for a group that two weeks earlier lost its No. 1 target in Sidney Rice to a season-ending knee injury.

Oh yeah, and it’s about to add Percy Harvin, who was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday and is eligible to make his Seahawks debut Sunday against Minnesota.
