Seahawks running back T.j. Duckett joined KJR’s Mitch Levy this morning to talk about the upcoming season. Duckett said he’s looking forward to expanding his role as a short-yardage back, and believes the zone blocking system fits his style as a one-cut, downhill runner.
“I would love to have more carries,” Duckett said. “I’m not just wanting to settle with being a short-yardage back just because of my size. So yeah, definitely, mentally I’m ready to compete for that.
"Physically I’m ready, so it’s just a matter of now going into camp and working. Working and showing what I can do. And trying – I don’t want to say knocking the stigma of a big back off – but showing I can be more of a guy who runs inside the 20s or a first and second-down guy. And give the coaches more confidence that I can make things happen.”
