Is it a sign of things to come this fall, or is it just what happens in offseason OTAs? Either way, football junkies took notice that third round draft pick Russell Wilson too the majority of the snaps with Seattle's first unit last Thursday.

The Seahawks have since broken up for the summer. The veterans won't be back until fall camp starts in a few weeks.

For his part, Wilson showed a firm command of the offense last week – a big improvement since the beginning of OTAs. Coach Pete Carroll told reporters "it worked out" to give all three possibilities (Matt Flynn, Tarvaris Jackson, Wilson) an even shot on the final day of practice.

"I think he's gotten a lot more comfortable from when I first saw him," said cornerback Richarde Sherman. "You could seen on day one when he was out there with the ones you could see his eyes were a little wide… but he's settled down a little bit."

Carroll didn't telegraph his intentions, giving no clue who the starting quarterback will be when the season begins.

Take a look at what he told the Seattle Times:

"It's going to take us until we start playing games to where we'll see something happen," Carroll said. "At this point they're doing everything they can do with the opportunities, and they look good."
