(1090 The Fan) — Seattle Seahawks pass rusher O’Brien Schofield joined The Steve Sandmeyer Show a day after visiting the White House with his Super Bowl Champion teammates. Schofield shared his thoughts of that visit, but when on-the-field football came up, the Wisconsin product spoke of his role in 2014.
“I can play both,” Schofield said of playing outside linebacker and defensive end in his NFL career. “But this year, from what I understand, I’m going to solely be focused on playing with my hand on the ground, so I am excited about that.
“I promise you, you’ll hear my name.”
With Schofield part of the mix at right defensive end as the Seahawks looks to replace Red Bryant and Chris Clemons, we may see more than just two or three names out there in certain situations. Also included in the group of candidates is Greg Scruggs, Benson Mayowa and rookies Cassius Marsh and Jackson Jeffcoat.
Cliff Avril is generally regarded as the team’s pass-rushing left defensive end.
