He wasn’t particularly good at the former (not that he was spectacular at guard, either). The Seahawks also lost out on ex-Green Bay guard T.J. Lang, who spurned Seattle for more money from Detroit. The Seahawks needs more up front to kick-start their running game and better protect quarterback Russell Wilson.
Running back. David Johnson is well en route to recovering from the leg injury that derailed his breakout 2016 season. But there are backup issues with Arizona planning to convert Andre Ellington to wide receiver and Chris Johnson and Stepfan Taylor both unrestricted free agents. David Johnson also could use some help after averaging 23.3 touches a game last season.

With two outs in the first inning, Miley was struck by two consecutive line drives hit right back up the middle. Miley was able to shake off the first blow, but Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys the second, which hit him in close to the same spot, forced him to leave the game.
Miley walked off the field under his own power, but was in noticeable pain.
