Milloy reunites with Carroll 11 years later
A minute later, the 36-year-old is on the sidelines tutoring rookie safety Earl Thomas while holding a play card in his hand. The 14th-overall draft pick and new $21 million man is currently starting next to Milloy on the last line of Seattle’s defense.
A minute or so later, the closely shaven veteran of four Pro Bowls and two Super Bowls is ragging on 24-year-old fellow safety Jamar Adams about his bushy and unruly hair.
“There’s a lot of guys who are like, ‘Damn, how do you do it? How do you do it for 15 years? I’m already feeling the soreness now, and I’ve only been in the league four years, two years, whatever,’” Milloy said after Monday morning’s practice.
Carroll let him mostly watch that, but the coach joked “we had to hide his shoulder pads.”
From 1997-99, Carroll was struck by how intensely and how smartly Milloy played safety for him in New England. So when Carroll returned to the NFL in January, he called the free agent back for a 15th season.
“(I) had somewhat of a special relationship with him was he was very young,” Carroll said Monday evening. “It’s been a lasting impression. I had in the back of my mind he could be a great guy to help us transition a new program.
“When I finally watched his film and saw him knocking the fire out of people I kept thinking, ‘He can’t keep doing this … he can’t get up.’ He wasn’t only getting up, he was getting up and standing over guys and being all jacked up.”
Already, Seattle’s coach and his defensive backs are leaning on Lawyer _ the self-described foster kid and product of nearby Tacoma’s streets.
“He brings so much,” Carroll says.
“Oh, man. Here we go!” he joked with a big laugh later when reminded of that.
