RENTON, Wa. (KIRO) The Seattle Seahawks held their second session of OTA's on Wednesday.

Veteran linebacker K.J. Wright is hoping to have a big campaign after suffering a knee injury last year.

Now the linebacker prepares for his ninth season in the NFL and is taking the rookies under his wing. These include Cody Barton, a third round draft pick from the University of Utah and University of Washington first-team All-American, Ben Burr Kirven, otherwise known as BBK.

Wright explained, "they picked up the playbook fast. I was trying to tell BBK 'we see this formation' and he took the words out of my mouth as far as D-Line stunts." He added, "I've never seen rookie linebackers like this, usually takes them awhile to get the playbook down, especially D-Line stunts, but they've handled the curve."

The Seahawks wrap up OTA's next week.
