CHARLOTTE -- Jim Mora's defensive staff is taking shape in Seattle after the team reportedly hired the Bucs' Casey Bradley as coordinator and the Jets' Dan Quinn to coach the defensive line.

Bradley has experience in the Tampa 2 system. Quinn worked with Mora in San Francisco. He was most recently with the Jets and Dolphins, where those teams ran 3-4 defenses.

The responsibility for the defense will rest with Mora. Adding Bradley and Quinn is part of the organization's plan to amp up the energy level. Mora and the assistants he is hiring -- Greg Knapp, Bradley and Quinn -- are younger than 50 and younger than their predecessors.
