News, notes, and injury updates from Day 1 of 2022 Seahawks training camp

Seattle Seahawks training camp kicked off on Wednesday, as the team gears up for its first season without Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, or literally anyone who played on the 2013 Super Bowl team. The main storylines for training camp are obviously the QB competition between Geno Smith and Drew Lock, who will get the start at right tackle, the young cornerbacks looking to get into the starting lineup, and the future of DK Metcalf. Seattle’s star receiver did report to camp but didn’t participate in practice, and he doesn’t have a new contract yet.

Below are news and notes from Day 1 of training camp, as reported by journalists in attendance at VMAC.
