RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Pete Carroll said he remained in contact with Jadeveon Clowney throughout the offseason and the Seattle Seahawks were in on conversations through last weekend before the defensive end signed with Tennessee. Ultimately, Clowney’s decision to sign elsewhere leaves the defensive line and specifically the pass rush as one of Seattle’s biggest questions going into the season opener at Atlanta. But Carroll feels comfortable with what the Seahawks did and how the options in the pass rush looked during training camp. Carroll also said Ethan Pocic will be Seattle's starting center for the opener, ending one of the few competitions from training camp.
