Sturgeon Bay’s Jake Bscherer will get his chance to earn a roster spot in the NFL. After a attending a rookie tryout camp with Seattle earlier this month, the Seahawks offered Bscherer a contract on Wednesday. Bscherer said that the offer was a little unexpected but that it was great to get the call. He is also aware that this is only the first step in a long process….
In the pre-draft process, Bscherer was listed at 6’7 and 305 pounds and worked mostly at left tackle in the Seahawks rookie camp. He said the biggest difference he noticed was the speed of the NFL game and that the tryout camp was a big challenge….
Bscherer says that he’ll leave for Seattle on Monday and that the Seahawks will have a round of OTA’s next week. Bscherer was on the Sturgeon Bay team that won the 2004 State Football Championship and played for the Wisconsin Badgers before wrapping up his college career with UM-Duluth.
