The quarterback situation isn't the only unresolved position battle heading into Seattle's third preseason game against Kansas City on Friday. The battle at wide receiver is getting intense, too. There are 13 wide receivers on the roster and the coaching staff is going to have to trim that down to six by Aug. 31. That means there are a few wide receivers on the bubble, and you've probably heard of them.
- Braylon Edwards (WR, eighth year, one-time Pro-Bowler)
- Terrell Owens (WR, 16th year, six-time Pro-Bowler, T-second on NFL's all-time touchdown receptions list) -- The Seahawks have been desperate to get a big-bodied veteran wide receiver into the mix. And that desperation led to the signing of Owens in early August, despite his “me-first,” prima donna reputation. Right now, Owens and Edwards are on the bubble. The most likely scenario is the Seahawks keep one of these veterans and Friday's game against Kansas City should help coach Pete Carroll and his coaching staff make a decision. Despite reports that T.O. is still the old T.O., Carroll will keep Owens if he can produce and cut down on the antics, which admittedly is a lot to ask of Owens. Edwards has had a solid training camp, but beside a 39-yard touchdown catch against Tennessee, he's been relatively quiet in two preseason games. Remember: This is Carroll we're talking about, so there is wildcard scenario here: Both guys make the team. Its not highly likely this happens, but you can't count anything out with Carroll.
- Korey Toomer (LB, rookie, fifth-round pick out of Idaho) -- It's never easy cutting a fifth-round pick, but the Seahawks might have to do that. The Idaho product is competing with Michael Morgan for one of the last linebacker spots. If Carroll feels like Morgan and Toomer are even when cut day rolls around, Carroll might give the slight edge to Morgan because he coached him for four years (2006-09) at USC.
- Kregg Lumpkin (RB, 4th year, 1st with Seattle) -- In two preseason games so far, Lumpkin has done well, carrying the ball 15 times for 61 yards (4.1 YPC) and scoring a touchdown. However, that may not be enough to keep the four-year veteran on the roster. If Lumpkin's cut, it won't be because he doesn't have the talent to play for the Seahawks -- it will come down to simple numbers. If the Seahawks keep five running backs, Lumpkin most likely makes the team. If Carroll decides to go with four, Lumpkin could see his bubble burst.
