Former USC coach Pete Carroll has been rounding up plenty of his former Trojans (with the notable exception of Taylor Mays). On Friday, Carroll reunited with a guy who played for Carroll during his time as an NFL coach.
Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times reports that the Seahawks have re-signed safety Lawyer Milloy, who spent 2009 with the team and 1997 through 1999 with Carroll’s New England Patriots.
“He’s one of the toughest guys I ever coached anywhere,” Carroll said Friday. “And he brings that.”
“My decision was made a lot easier when I saw what happened in the
offseason, the type of guys they brought in and all that,” Milloy said. “I think it’s
going to be a very competitive team, and I like the competitive
atmosphere that they’re creating.”
Milloy is right. With Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner retiring, the 49ers treading water, and the Rams continuing to try to fight their way out of a paper bag, the Seahawks are in position to resume their dominance of one of the weakest divisions in football.
