[Editor's note: This has been rewritten at the request of Truehawk.] Rookie Red Bryant asked right guard Rob Sims if he had an umbrella. Sims said , 'No,' and laughed. In four years covering the Seahawks, I've never seen one Seahawk ever duck under an umbrella to hide from the rain. Rain is something that they don't mind at all. In fact, it can be a badge of honor. A few years ago, the Seahawks were practicing in the rain and afterward, Robbie Tobeck refused to answer questions from reporters who chose to stand under a tent, out of the rain. The only ones he talked to were those who stood out in the rain and got wet.
Bryant is a rookie defensive tackle from Texas A&M. He plays with a lot of strength and a little edge to him, but he's a very jovial person. The kind of guy who plays dominoes, not video games, and describes himself as being very country.
He was also my leader in the clubhouse for being the first participant in a training-camp skirmish because of how hard he plays in practice. Instead, that went to fullback Owen Schmitt who exchanged head slaps with safety Brian Russell during Monday's practice.
