Seahawks free agent LT Russell Okung said he isn’t nervous at all about representing himself in free agency, and he believes he’s well prepared for how things will go.
“Not nervous about it at all,” Okung said during an interview with 710 ESPN Seattle. “I’m well-studied. I’ve prepared. And I think the value speaks for itself. I think there’s a necessity in my position league-wide, and we’ll just have to see where it goes. Really excited about the opportunity though.”
Regarding this shoulder surgery, Okung explained that it was just something he had do.
“It was something that I didn’t have to do, but decided to do just to mitigate any risks going forward,” he said.
