The Associated Press takes a look at the NFL roster for 2012’s NFC West. What’s hot, what’s not for this year’s season.
Seattle’s Felix Hernandez threw Major League Baseball’s third perfect game of the season Wednesday — a record — joining San Francisco’s Matt Cain and the White Sox’s Philip Humber, who also tossed his gem at Safeco Field.

Coach Pete Carroll continues to be very guarded about his grand plan concerning the three-way battle for the Seahawks’ starting quarterback position.

Seattle will enter training camp with Matt Flynn, Tarvaris Jackson and Russell Wilson splitting reps, Jackson getting the first snaps with the No. 1 offense, as was the case during offseason workouts and minicamp. But all three will get equal time — at least early in camp — with the No. 1 unit. All Carroll has said about the timeline for the competition is it’ll likely go into the start of exhibition games, which begin Aug. 11 at home against Tennessee.
