TE Jameson Konz Looking Forward to Opportunity

Jameson Konz’s ability to run the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds and post a 46″ vertical leap at 6-foot-3 and 234 pounds is what likely prompted the Seahawks to use the 245th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft on the former Kent State tight end/H-back.

After landing on injured reserve before even appearing in a preseason game last summer, Konz says he’s fully recovered and is looking forward to an opportunity to show what he can on the field, writes Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Repository.

“We have a new offensive coordinator this year,” Konz said. “I’m sure there will be tweaks. We don’t have playbooks. I don’t have any insight on what my role might be. Whether it’s receiver, tight end or H-back, I’ll do everything I can.

“The position doesn’t matter. My love of the game is profound. I just want a chance.”

Konz was back home in Ohio in when he got the call from longtime Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who despite his free agent status has taken a lead role in organizing player-run workouts in the Seattle area.

“Matt has been very helpful,” said Konz. “He’s a great guy and a great veteran leader. He helps lead the workouts, and he leads the throwing sessions.”

A linebacker his first three seasons with the Golden Flashes, Konz was moved to tight end in 2008 and caught 21 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns in 2009. Listed as a tight end on the team’s official website, Konz’s combination and size and speed provides depth behind big-bodied receivers Mike Williams and 2011 fourth round pick Kris Durham.
