The Seahawks returned to the field Sunday for their third day of training camp (and their first practice in pads). Here are a few takeaways:

More Seahawks training camp takeaways: Day 1 | Day 2

New additions

The Seahawks added a pair of wide receivers over the weekend: 24-year-old Marvin Bracy (5-feet-9, 172 lbs.), a former Florida State Seminoles receiver and Olympic sprinter, and undrafted rookie free agent Malik Turner (6-feet-2, 202 lbs.) out of Illinois. Both players were on the field for practice.

In a corresponding move, the team waived long snapper Tanner Carew and tight end Kayaune Ross.

Notable plays

Safety Tedric Thompson made a leaping grab near the left sideline to intercept a pass from Russell Wilson and broke up another pass to wide receiver Marcus Johnson (who had an otherwise good day himself). It was a promising step forward for the second-year pro, who has been taking more snaps with the starters as the Seahawks look to fill the void left by Earl Thomas (now entering the seventh week of his holdout).

Also finishing the day with an impressive play was cornerback Trovon Reed, who stripped wide receiver Tanner McEvoy of a catch.

It wasn’t all defense Sunday. A pass from Wilson to wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who stretched to make a catch off his fingertips, drew one of the louder cheers from the crowd. Wide receiver Keenan Reynolds, a former Navy quarterback who signed with Seattle in May, also hauled in a touchdown pass from Wilson. Rookie running back Rashaad Penny saw some reps in the passing game, catching a pass from quarterback Austin Davis in the corner of the end zone.

A few words from Duane Brown

Fresh off signing a three-year extension with the Seahawks, left tackle Duane Brown spoke with reporters after practice.

“They communicated that early on and it was no doubt in any of our minds that we could get it done,” Brown said. “I wanted to show my commitment to the team and our future by being here. Just my situation like I said coming in half way through the season, you want to be here for the offseason for me to learn the team more, to have my impact in the locker room, my leadership skills. I was grateful to be able to do that. They worked behind the scenes to get it done. I’m just grateful everything came into play.”

Before this weekend, Brown was one of a number of Seahawks entering a contract year. Players who have yet to be extended – but who are prime candidates for a new deal – include defensive end Frank Clark, linebacker K.J. Wright, wide receiver Tyler Lockett, and safety Earl Thomas.
