By the shores of Lake Washington

Posted by Jose Romero

The Seahawks moved practice to the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in north Renton, their new home beginning Aug. 18, for a test run on the pristine grass fields with the water and Mercer Island in full view.

After the morning session -- the afternoon practice will be back in Kirkland at current headquarters -- WR Nate Burleson, who grew up in Renton, shared his thoughts.

"It's truly unbelievable," Burleson said. "I feel honored just to be here and to walk around and be one of the first players to actually set foot on this grass. I know I'm not going to be the last, but to be one of the first is special."

Asked if it would be easy to daydream with the boats on the water in full view, Burleson said with Mike Holmgren running practice, the only daydreaming one can do is inside a playbook.

"The surroundings are great, everything else is great, but at the end of the day it's still football."
