    Team expects big things from Burleson

    Prepare for life without Darrell Jackson

    The veteran receiver plans to rest his surgically repaired knee as much as possible during camp. There's a chance Jackson will return to form and stay on the field enough to be a factor all season, but Seattle needs to start preparing itself for life without him.

    Jackson missed 10 games last season. He has never been much of a practice player, often because of injuries. If Jackson misses time against this season, the Seahawks won't have Joe Jurevicius to catch 10 touchdown passes in his absence.

    The team does expect big things from Nate Burleson, who was signed from Minnesota. A healthy Bobby Engram gives Seattle another starting-caliber player at the position, while the continuing development of D.J. Hackett also figures to help.

    The resurgence of Peter Warrick could be the wild-card for Seattle. If he returns to the form he showed before knee surgery (and there are indications he might), Seattle might not need Jackson so much.


    Camp opens with the first full practice July 29; camp breaks Aug. 24. Scrimmage scheduled for Aug. 5.

    Nate is a steady receiver, but he's not in the upper echelon. However, I certainly wish him well.

    Jackson is way better than Burleson. We'll see if Burleson can step up to the plate.

    :grin: Stop!! Don't hurt yourself! I'm going to assume that our friend was simply saying Burleson is a decent possession receiver. There's no way he could have actually been comparing him to the second greatest receiver in the history of the NFL. Step away from the wall... :grin:

    i hope he doesn't have a season like they want him too because that would make me mad if all we get stuck with is t-will and other receivers who haven't proven their worth

    Re: Team expects big things from Burleson

    I don't think Burleson is going to be as big as some people think he is going to. He was always solid while he was here and I love the guy, but he isn't exactly the "star" player type.

    I'm sure the Seahawks will like having someone who can actually catch the ball though.
