Pete Carroll tells K.J. Wright what kind of players he wants

One of the best aspects of the Seattle Seahawks and the culture they have created is the fact franchise legends still want to be around the program. Even players who had less than ceremonial exits – such as Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett and even Bobby Wagner – still find their way back within the Seahawks fold.

One such player is former linebacker K.J. Wright. Now fully retired, Wright is transitioning into a media-focused career, having radio spots on ESPN 710 and his own podcast. On the latest episode of his podcast, Wright had on his former coach, Pete Carroll.

There, Carroll discussed what he is looking for in a player. Carroll pulled back the veil a bit and went into depth on what he calls his “competitor scale.”

Given how many elite players – some of whom are certainly destined for Canton one day – the Seahawks have had under Carroll, this scale certainly seems to line up.
