RENTON, Wash. —

Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks started organized team activities with very little talk about anything that took place on the field.

Carroll gave a lengthy opening statement on Monday, addressing head on the recent off-field problems that have put some of his players in the headlines. The bad news for Seattle started last Friday when defensive end Bruce Irvin was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season after testing positive for performance enhancing substances. That was followed by news Monday morning that backup quarterback Josh Portis was arrested on investigation of driving under the influence on May 5 and faces a court arraignment next week.

Irvin became the fifth Seattle player to be suspended for using banned substances since 2011.
