Here are the highlights from Friday’s practice, the ninth of Bing Training Camp:
- Cornerback Marcus Trufant had two interceptions in a short span during a scrimmage-like session, making excellent plays on both balls to record the picks.
- Receiver Deion Branch had a phenomenal day Friday, recording three touchdown catches from Matt Hasselbeck during a 13-play red zone period, including one on a soaring reception to the right side of the end zone and another on a perfectly thrown fade in the left corner.
- Later, during 7-on-7 drills, Branch and Hasselbeck connected again, this time on a beautifully thrown pass between three defenders that the wideout deftly came back to, avoiding the coverage.
- Wideout Deon Butler ran under a rainbow deep ball from Matt Hasselbeck during team period, wowing the fans seated nearby on the berm.
- Defensive end Nick Reed batted down a pass at the line of scrimmage during team period.
- Wideout Mike Williams snagged a couple of receptions downfield over the middle in team drills.
- Tailback Justin Forsett logged a few nice runs during team period.
- Also during team period, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and tight end Chris Baker connected for a pretty throw-and-catch toward the left sideline.
