Seahawks Camp Report: Day 14

RENTON, Wash. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Seattle Seahawks training camp:
- Wednesday was the final day of training camp, which is less of an adjustment for the Seahawks than it is for some teams since the Seahawks hold camp at their own facility. But the players get to go home now. During the three weeks of camp, the players stay at a nearby hotel and have a curfew each night. "Nothing really changes except we get to sleep in our own bed now," quarterback Russell Wilson said. Wednesday also was the annual Family Day for the Seahawks, when family members of the players, coaches and staff attend practice and have lunch afterwards.
- Wilson and wide receiver Doug Baldwin teamed up for the play of the day on a 50-yard TD bomb, a perfect throw by Wilson as Baldwin beat free safety Earl Thomas at the goal line.
- DeShawn Shead had the defensive play of the day with an interception in the middle of the field while playing safety. Shead also spent part of the practice playing cornerback. His versatility to play either spot well might be his biggest asset.
- Running back Christian Michael had one of his best days of training camp, including a 40-yard touchdown run around the right end when he outraced defenders to the end zone.
- Tight end Zach Miller made a nice over-the-shoulder catch on a perfectly thrown 25-yard sideline pass from Terrelle Pryor.
- Tight end Morrell Presley, who is fighting to earn a roster spot, made a tough catch in the front corner of the end zone for 12-yard touchdown, beating rookie linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis.
- It seems to be a daily occurrence, but receiver Phil Bates had another touchdown catch Wednesday, on a 15-yard pass from Wilson.
- The Seahawks will have a walk-through practice Thursday in preparation for their first home game of the preseason Friday night against the San Diego Chargers at CenturyLink Field.
