Seattle Seahawks Notes, Quotes 2009-03-27
--The Seahawks reportedly had Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry in to visit at the team's practice facility. Seattle could use another linebacker after trading veteran Pro Bowler Julian Peterson to Detroit for defensive lineman Corry Redding and the Lions' fifth-round draft pick for this year's draft. With Peterson gone, the Seahawks will likely look at D.D. Lewis and Will Herring at possible replacements for Peterson, and probably shift franchise player Leroy Hill to more a pass rusher, filling a role that Peterson performed while in Seattle.


--Seattle picked up three compensatory picks in this year's draft, the league announced at its owners meeting in California. The Hawks now have 10 picks overall, the most picks the organization has had since 2005. The three compensatory picks are all in the seventh round, at 245, 247 and 248 overall.

--While at the owners meetings, coach Jim Mora addressed the rash of back injuries the Seahawks had last season, including quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and now-retired offensive lineman Chris Gray. Mora said he believes the injuries are unrelated, and that the team's injury situation overall last season was a one-time situation that will not be duplicated again in 2009.

"We looked at everything and evaluated all of our techniques -- the lifts we did, the running aspect -- and didn't necessarily identify anything in the program that indicated a reason for the backs," Mora told ESPN.com. "It was just I think a freak thing. They were all different. They all kind of happened a different way. If there was one consistency, then it might have been easier to identify. But there wasn't. They didn't all happen in the weight room. They didn't all happen on the field. They were just kind of different."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We understand that we have an opportunity of being very special in this league, and we're going to really open up some eyes and bring some attention to the Northwest in the National Football League. So it's not nervousness. It's more excitement of what's to come." -- Receiver Nate Burleson on the Seahawks' intention to rebound from last year's 4-12 campaign.
