A Chip On Willson’s Shoulder

It’s been a bit of a different off-season for Seattle Seahawks Tight End Luke Willson, compared to the one he enjoyed following his rookie year.

The LaSalle native says he and his teammates have a chip on their shoulder after losing by such a narrow margin in February’s Super Bowl to the New England Patriots. “I think a lot of us felt like we were, obviously, right there and we played well enough to win that game. So for me, I wasn’t really doing the whole celebration, like I was last year. I was pretty much back to work.”

Soon after that, Seattle traded for superstar tight end Jimmy Graham out of New Orleans.

Willson says he and the coaches haven’t had the chance to sit down and talk schemes yet, so he won’t speculate on how Graham’s presence could change his role with the team. He simply plans on working his hardest this summer to fit in where ever the Seahawks coaching staff needs him.
