Monday Round-Up: Rashaad Penny attends NFLPA Rookie Premiere
Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Monday, May 21 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Penny At The NFLPA Rookie Premiere
Seahawks running back and first-round pick Rashaad Penny was among the many NFL rookies that gathered over the weekend in sunny Los Angeles, Calif. to learn about the business of football at the 2018 NFL Rookie Premiere.
The Rookie Premiere is the first event for rookies after they've been drafted and provides players insight and connections for their personal brands and careers. Rookies also go through an orientation that gives them information about the programs and services of the NFLPA's union.
Added NFL Players Inc. President Ahmad Nassar: "NFLPA Rookie Premiere is the best opportunity for our partners to engage early on with the next wave of marketable young stars entering the league. Beyond providing a platform to learn about the business of football and benefits of their union as they plan for their new careers, Rookie Premiere allows players to showcase their personalities so that we can use that insight to connect the right players with the right brands to advance their stories and campaigns.”
Joining Penny in California were rookies such as No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield and No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley.
