Day 17 highlights

Four downs with ...

Kemp Rasmussen, DE

Height: 6-3. Weight: 265.

Experience: 5th season.

College: Indiana. Hometown: Hadley, Mich.

Born: May 25, 1979.

Any interesting nicknames? "I don't know. My name is butchered so many times. 'Ras-myew-sen.' Nobody gets it right. Everybody calls it something different. Kemp's easy. Guys call me 'Ken,' something like that. I've never really had a nickname."

Three things you have to have at camp: "My cellphone, definitely. My supplements and sleep. Gotta get rest."

The funniest Seahawk is: "I'm going to say Gibran (Hamdan). I've known Gibran all the way back from college. We went to school together. He's always been a funny dude. Always has funny things to say."

What made you choose the Seahawks in free agency? "I wanted to play for another winning program. I wanted to go somewhere where I'd have another shot at a ring. I didn't want to go somewhere that would end up 4-12, something like that."

Practices: Full pads in the morning, special teams without pads in the afternoon.

Big plays: Another day, another Marcus Trufant interception. He picked off Matt Hasselbeck, snagging a hard throw out of the air with both hands. LB Lance Laury stripped the ball from WR Tony Brown after a catch, Hasselbeck made nice throws to TE Itula Mili and WR Bobby Engram and D.D. Lewis did well to string out a run to the left for no gain.

Temperatures: 68 degrees in the morning, 79 in the afternoon.

Snapshot: DT Alex Guerrero finally got his moment in the spotlight after all of the days of anonymous toiling, scooping up a fumble caused by S Etric Pruitt on a Ran Carthon run. Guerrero, a popular guy for his energy and enthusiasm, scooped up the ball and ran until he fell over. ... CB Jordan Babineaux wore a black hat with the letters "PA" in white upon entering the dining hall for lunch. Not for Pennsylvania, but, as Babineaux made very clear, Port Arthur, Texas, his hometown.
