Seahawks coach Pete Carroll: This is the fastest team we've had – Seahawks Wire

There may still be questions about how things will shake out with a new quarterback under center, but coach Pete Carroll knows one thing for certain about his squad this season . . . the Seattle Seahawks have speed on their side.
“This is the fastest team we’ve had,” Carroll said after Saturday’s walkthrough, first mentioning the obvious with wide receivers Marquise Goodwin, Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and Dee Eskridge.
“To me, it’s always a priority,” Carroll explained. “It’s always faster the better. We are looking for strongest, fastest make-up of the players. I don’t care about how much guys weigh in terms of how big they are. I care about how fast they are and how well they can move.”
And it’s not just the receivers that can turn on the heat this year, it’s players throughout the roster that add quickness to this squad.
“When you have offensive tackles that run a 4.9 (seconds), that gives you the chance to really pick up your speed,” Carroll continued. “We are fast on the edge coming off and on the defensive side of the ball. The DBs can run, the corners can run. So, it just seems like every part of our game seems faster.
“And I’m calling on it and hopefully we’ll see the factor on special teams in a lot of ways.”
The Seahawks have their first chance to showcase their speed on Monday night when they host the Broncos at Lumen Field.
