One of the more intriguing starting competitions around the league is in Seattle, where there’s a two-horse race to see who starts at running back between Julius Jones and Justin Forsett.
Seahawks first-year coach Pete Carroll is all about competition, calling this one “wide open,” and apparently is in no hurry to have it decided in June, according to The Olympian.
“We are leaving this thing wide open,” Carroll said. “There is no reason to call it. Julius has done everything he needs to do to represent. He has done a beautiful job so far. Justin (Forsett) continues to do really well, too. I love the way he is showing out here. Those guys are certainly in the 1-2 spots. Whoever is first – it doesn’t really matter to me right now. I can’t tell and I don’t care. Right now we are just playing football.”
will likely be added to the mix when he returns from a knee injury — he’s expected back for training camp — while the Seahawks are also giving Quinton Ganther
and Louis Rankin
offseason looks. It might not matter all that much who actually starts, but Carroll was convinced enough in his options that LenDale White
was released late last month
