RENTON, Wash. -- After an impressive first day at rookie minicamp, Seahawks wide receiver Paul Richardson did not practice Saturday, but it was only a precautionary measure.

Richardson had a nasty collision with a defensive back on a deep pass at the end of practice Friday, but he got up quickly and walked off the field with no problems. Richardson even attended a team reception later Friday afternoon in the VMAC lobby.

The Seahawks' coaches just don’t want to take any chances with their top draft choice, who wowed everyone with his blazing speed on Friday.

Wide receiver Chris Matthews, the 2012 CFL Rookie of the Year for Winnipeg, has not practiced because of a slight hamstring pull.

Offensive tackle Garrett Scott, a sixth-round draft choice from Marshall, also hasn’t practice because he has not passed his physical. No other information on Scott was available.

Lance Ray, a tryout receiver from East Carolina, did not practice, which meant fourth-round pick Kevin Norwood of Alabama got plenty of reps Saturday. He made it count with another solid performance, including two receptions on deep throws and several tough catches over the middle.

Wide receiver Arceto Clark had the play of the day on a 60-yard TD catch from Keith Price, who continued to shine.

Three of Seattle’s nine draft choices have agreed to contracts _ defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, cornerback Eric Pinkins and fullback Kiero Small.
