Boykin says if a team wants him to play receiver, 'I'll play receiver'
RENTON, Wash. Former TCU star Trevon Boykin and Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams are getting a chance this weekend to pull off their best Russell Wilson impersonation.
Their similarities to Seattle’s starting quarterback are a big reason why both are part of the Seahawks rookie minicamp that started Friday.
Backup quarterback is one of the big remaining questions for Seattle this off-season. Veteran Tarvaris Jackson has served as Wilson’s backup for the past three seasons, but is a free agent and while Seattle would like to bring Jackson back it is also looking at other options.
Coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks targeted Boykin and Adams for this weekend because of their skills that are similar to Wilson’s. Boykin was signed as an undrafted free agent while Adams is with Seattle on a tryout.
