It might not have been the most exciting debut of all time, but Seahawks LB Ricky Foley still accomplished what he wanted in his first NFL game. He got on the stat sheet with a tackle, and got his first taste of live action.
Foley hopes to build on his performance next week against the Packers, and is working hard with Seattle defensive line coach Dan Quinn to improve.
Qwest Field was the apple of Foley’s eye, and his chances of playing there in the regular season might have improved a tad as defensive end Lawrence Jackson was traded by the Seahawks to the Lions on Wednesday. Foley backs up Jackson at the “Leo” pass-rushing spot, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and he now should have more of an opportunity to flash in that role.
