Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has been thrilled with the results after adding a couple of veteran wide receivers whose off-field issues have at times overshadowed their on-field talents, Braylon Edwards and Terrell Owens. So does that mean Carroll will try to make it a trifecta and bring in Chad Johnson?
Carroll said on ESPN’s NFL 32 that he’s very pleased with what he has seen from Edwards and Owens, and those two are all the veteran receivers he needs to add.
“Braylon Edwards has played great for us in practice, and he did a beautiful job in the game, so he’s starting to make an impact,” Carroll said. “And then we thought Terrell might have a chance to make an impact as well, and we worked him out, and he was phenomenal. He’s right in the middle of everything, practicing hard, competing every day.”
When asked if he would consider Johnson, however, Carroll seemed to regard it as a ridiculous question, and sounded like he was trying to stifle laughter.
“No, I think we’re pretty well settled with what we’re doing here,” Carroll said. “That’s not going to happen here. No.”
That’s probably what every other NFL head coach would say about Johnson right now.
