Seattle Seahawks

Kicking battle
The Seahawks have a place-kicking competition between rookie Brandon Coutu and veteran Olindo Mare. Coutu has a strong leg and he is probably better on kickoffs, but he is unproven in the NFL. It will be interesting to see if the Seahawks take a chance on him or stick with the veteran.
