Wilson throws himself into the mix

Welcome to the three-headed, three-armed competition to be the Seahawks’ starting quarterback this season.

Three? That’s right, third-round draft choice Russell Wilson was impressive enough in the three-day rookie minicamp which ended today that coach Pete Carroll said the QB from Wisconsin will compete with incumbent Tarvaris Jackson and free-agent addition Matt Flynn for the job.

“He’s going to be in the competition,” Carroll said. “He showed us enough, he’s in the competition. That is going to tax us, as we know. It was already going to be taxing with two, but he’s shown us enough that we need to see where he fits in with these guys.”

That competition will begin Monday, when Wilson and the rest of the team’s draft choices will join the veterans in the offseason program.
