Seahawks | DC likes speed at LB

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 14:08:16 -0700

Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said he like the speed LBs K.J. Wright, Bobby Wagner and Malcolm Smith brings to the defense. "I think the thing that jumps out is just the speed of those guys who are playing linebacker," Quinn said. "Sometimes that translates into being a good blitzer. Sometimes it doesn't. But the versatility for us is having a guy who can play on the end of the line, show the ability to cover, and then now when you add the pass rush element to it, I think that's when you really develop as a player."
