RENTON, Wash. – Russell Okung had about a month break between the end of the Seattle Seahawks' minicamp in June and the start of training camp this week.
It was the perfect opportunity for the Pro Bowl left tackle to take a little trip and do a little running — with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
Taking part in one of the world's most famous festivals — especially ones involving charging bulls — just weeks before the start of training camp is probably not what the Seahawks wanted to see out of their franchise left tackle. But the 25-year-old isn't interested in sitting back and missing out unique experiences.
Going to Spain was always an interest of Okung's, but the idea of Pamplona and participating in the nine-day San Fermin festival didn't start until a few months ago when he began researching the country.
