The winds of change continue to blow on Seattle's secondary. Following in the footsteps of 15-year veteran Lawyer Milloy, who raised a lot of eyebrows when he emerged earlier this offseason as the starting strong safety over Jordan Babineaux, it appears former first-rounder Kelly Jennings could be closing in on Josh Wilson for the starting RCB job. "They really like the way he was playing," one team source said of Jennings. "They really like Josh, too, but as good as he did after becoming a starter, he still slid inside to defend the slot, which he does very well and would continue to do. Kelly just went through a terrible period last year where he completely lost his confidence before bouncing back somewhat." We're told another factor behind Jennings possibly starting is that it would enable Wilson to go back to returning kickoffs full time — a role he likely wouldn't fill if he remained the starting right corner.
