(1090 The Fan) — Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Justin Britt joined The Steve Sandmeyer Show to talk about his offseason activities and what he’s working on for next season.
On offseason improvement, Britt said:
“For us offensive linemen, it’s always going to be technique constantly, and that’s why you practice. There’s always going to be things I need to work on and improve on. And that’s what I’m going to continue to do. Run blocking, pass blocking, there’s little things you can adjust. Once you master those things, you add on to it.”
Britt also spoke about blocking for a dual-threat quarterback like Russell Wilson.
“I think what [Wilson] does is tremendous. If you go back and watch Mizzou tape, James Franklin was my quarterback, and you know he didn’t quite sit still all the time either. So I was kind of used to it, and I like to have a quarterback like that. Because yes, he might make you work harder but he’ll definitely get out of trouble and save you from a sack or something like that, if need be. So it’s definitely fun to play with a quarterback like that, it’s stressful to play with a quarterback like that, but at the end of the day he’s a playmaker and you’re glad that he’s behind you and you’re blocking for him.”
On Marshawn Lynch?
“I think every offensive lineman wants to block for a running back like Marshawn. A running back who will fight for those extra yards every play, and sacrifice his body every game; you know, that’s an O-lineman’s dream. That makes you want to block even more. I mean, there [are] running backs who have been really successful being finesse and making guys miss, but you know it’s a lot harder to get the tough yards that he gets if you’re not able to run into people and stay on your feet like he does.”
