5/26: Nate Burleson takes subtle shot at Detroit
—The Detroit Free Press passes along a recent comment from Lions WR and former Seahawk Nate Burleson, who called Detroit “not the most desirable place” in a TV interview. Burleson was praising teammates for the large turnout at a player-led workout.
Here is the full quote: “Seeing about 35 guys there working out â€” this time of year, in Detroit is not the most desirable place, so you got guys flying in, paying for their own hotel, paying for rental cars â€” so that just kind of shows the dedication and really the direction of our team right now.”
–Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times writes that there’s a reason why the Mariners are taking fewer walks.
–Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean writes that Seahawks WR Golden Tate worked out with a few members of the Titans on Tuesday in Nashville, Tenn. Tate is from nearby Hendersonville, Tenn.
–710 ESPN Seattle’s Jim Moore says he’ll make good on his promise to treat Mariners fans to a game and dinner at Pyramid Alehouse for correctly predicting when DH Jack Cust would hit his first home run. Cust did so on Monday.
–Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times writes that some of the state’s top football recruits are slow to commit this year.
