Carroll: Shaquem Griffin having ‘very good offseason’

Shaquem Griffin was relegated into a special teams role in his initial season. Coach Pete Carroll would like to alter that in 2019.
The outside linebacker played with just eight snaps at the final 15 regular season games. Carroll would like to use the speed of Griffin more this season as a pass rusher — a place of need in Seattle.
During offseason workouts, Carroll has moved Griffin around, putting him at weakside linebacker in nickel packages and strongside in foundation sets, where he can rush the passer.

“It has been a fantastic deal for him,” Carroll explained, via the team’s official site. “We see how much background he’s on the border. He has played with outside linebacker for the most part in his profession. He is just more comfortable out there. That doesn’t mean he can’t perform behind the line of scrimmage. He has gained a lot there, but you can view him on the edge, in distance and coming off the edge and pressures and stuff like this , that it’s a fantastic place for him. So he has had a very, very good offseason with us.”
Griffin getting comfortable is a portion of the process going to sophomore. That comfort level should increase, as can his effects on the defense of Seattle.
Griffin is now an inspiration for many. His story is only going to grow if he turns in an every-game playmaker on defense.
