‘s Clare Farnsworth recently answered questions from fans, including one regarding Ricky Foley:

    Question: “In the most recent article, ‘Getting Defensive,’ I noticed that Ricky Foley was not mentioned. Have the Seahawks already released him without putting it on their recent transaction list?”
    Answer: “Foley remains on the roster and a factor at the Leo position. But he is working behind Chris Clemons and Nick Reed, whose pass-rushing ability earned the seventh-round draft choice a spot on the 53-man roster last year.
    “The key for Foley will be to duplicate what Reed was able to do last year – open eyes every time he gets an opportunity. Foley, who led the CFL with 12 sacks for the B.C. Lions last season, is a willing student. Several times, he has been spotted in the hallway getting extra tutoring from an assistant coach after meetings. He’s also one of the first players on the field for each practice, and one of the last to leave.”
