Gruden ready for live Seattle camp TV

RENTON, Wash. – Live TV from training camp, actually showing the players on the field during individual and team drills, is a first. But it’s something viewers across the country will have the opportunity to see Tuesday on ESPN at camp practice for the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.

The two-hour "SportsCenter" special starts at 1:30 p.m. ET (10:30 a.m. PT) right as practice begins. "Monday Night Football’s" Jon Gruden, studio analyst Darren Woodson, "SportsCenter" anchor Kenny Mayne and ESPN senior writer John Clayton will take part of the telecast.

All four men were watching practice on Sunday in preparation for the show.

“I’ve never seen this type of energy on a football field in training camp,” Gruden said Monday on 710 ESPN Seattle. “The energy level is amazing. If you want to see enthusiasm, watch the first three minutes on this show. It will be an eye-opener for people to see how the Seahawks conduct practice.”

Gruden also said he differs from his ESPN colleague Ron Jaworski on how they view Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson. Jaworski said he would take Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles over Wilson.

“I just saw Russell walk away with the Lombardi trophy,” Gruden said. “I like mobility and players who create offense when nothing is there. Just watch [Wilson] play. I’ve never seen intangibles like Russ has – dedication, leadership, work ethic, everything.”
