Seahawks still waiting for Russell Okung to sign

Gauging the significance of Russell Okung’s absence from Seahawks training camp became easy with a look at Seattle’s practice field Monday morning.

The first-unit left tackle: Mansfield Wrotto.

Now, Wrotto is a diligent worker. He is courteous and tough, but he was drafted to play guard and he couldn’t crack the starting lineup at that position last season. Yet with Okung unsigned and Ray Willis resting the morning practice, that left Wrotto working at the most important position with the first-unit offensive line.

Which puts a little more urgency behind the question of just when Seattle is going to get Okung signed.

“It’s a pretty clear-cut situation,” coach Pete Carroll said after the evening workout. “We’re very open and very strong about trying to get this thing done, and each day it’s gone by, Russell falls farther behind and it’s hurting him immensely. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get something done here, but it’s very clear-cut, and it does not need to be a difficult situation right here.”

OK. Deep breath. Okung has missed just three days, hardly an eternity. Willis was back on the field for the evening workout, filling the spot at left tackle, though it should also be pointed out that’s a position Willis has never played in a real game.

Aaron Curry — last year’s first-round pick — missed the first eight days of training camp. Center Chris Spencer missed five in 2005.
