You might remember a couple weeks ago when “Brock and Salk” discussed the importance of the Seahawks’ quarterbacks making the most of their idle time. Their advice to Matt Flynn, Tarvaris Jackson and Russell Wilson — who are all competing to be the Seahawks’ starter — was to get together with some of their receivers and get some work in before training camp begins later this month.

That’s what Flynn and Doug Baldwin did earlier this week in Gulf Breeze, Fla.

Bob Heist of the Pensacola News Journal writes that Flynn and Baldwin worked out for more than an hour at the receiver’s high school, running “through different routes, exchanging ideas on timing, field positioning and general likes and dislikes specific to executing certain patterns.”

Flynn drove from Louisiana to Gulf Breeze for the workout, according to the story.

“Days like today, all of this is invaluable,” said Baldwin, who led the Seahawks in receiving as an undrafted rookie in 2011. “You can’t really put words on it because all the time you get with anybody on your team, that’s a chance to build that rapport, that chemistry … And, obviously, he drove down from Louisiana to work and it adds that extra boost to the relationship.”
