CURTIS CRABTREE, Associated Press
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Malcolm Smith tracked the eyes of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and leapt into the air, snagging the football with one hand for an interception before racing 60 yards in the opposite direction for a touchdown.

Earl Thomas, K.J. Wright and other members of Seattle’s defense chased Smith to the end zone, shouting “MVP! MVP!”

Not a bad first full day back on the practice field for Seattle’s Super Bowl MVP.

Smith has been sidelined throughout the entire offseason while recovering from ankle surgery this spring. He showed Tuesday that he’s itching to get back to work with his teammates.
