On this date: Jim Zorn joins Seahawks Ring of Honor
NFL Media Senior Fantasy Analyst Michael Fabiano shares which running backs fantasy owners should target after the top options are off the board
With the Seahawks final preseason game on Thursday night, the team combined Competition Wednesday and Turnover Thursday into one day, hopefully preparing themselves for later in the year when they play on Thursday night in the regular season.
Due to the shortened week, the team doubled up on a Tuesday practice of preseason week four with the themes of "Competition Wednesday" and "Turnover Thursday".
A player-by-player look at the 2015 Seattle Seahawks 75-man roster. The Seahawks must trim their roster to 53 players by 1 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 5.
1991: Jim Zorn, the team’s original quarterback, becomes the second player inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor. Zorn left the team after the 1984 season as the franchise’s all-time leader in completions (1,593), passing yards (20,122) and TD passes (107), mark that would be surpassed by Dave Krieg and then Matt Hasselbeck. Zorn joins Hall of Fame wide receiver Steve Largent in the Ring of Honor.
2001: Trent Dilfer, who had led the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl victory in January, signs to a one-year contact to serve as the backup to QB Matt Hasselbeck. With Hasselbeck in his first season as a starter after being acquired in a trade with the Green Bay Packers, coach Mike Holmgren wanted a veteran backup. And Dilfer was needed, as he won each of his four starts for an injured Hasselbeck.
2002: The team christens its new home field – then Seahawks Stadium and now CenturyLink Field – with an intra-squad scrimmage. The Seahawks are 73-31 in 12 seasons at the state-of-the-art venue, including playoff games, and also have posted the only unbeaten home regular-season records in franchise history (2003, 2005 and 2012).
