The Seahawks passing attack is ranked 30th in the NFL in yards per game leaving head coach Pete Carroll open to the idea of using cornerback Richard Sherman at wide receiver.

“He’s been very clear in that intent for a long time around here,” Carroll told KIRO Radio on Friday. “It’s always been a conversation that we’ve had, and if I need him I’m going to him and he knows that.”

“Sure,” Carroll said. “He was a good receiver growing up and he has tremendous catching range and all that as we’ve witnessed in his defensive play, and he would love to do it. So he’s ready. If we get in an emergency situation, he knows I’m coming to him.”

Sherman caught 73 passes for 1,232 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons at Stanford.
