Catching up with: Curt Singer

Posted Nov 16, 2012

Curt Singer last played for the Seahawks in 1991, but the former offensive tackle who had two stints with the team still lives in the area and is, in his words, ‘Living the good life.’

What he did: Singer, an offensive tackle, played in 24 games during two stints with the Seahawks. A sixth-round draft choice in 1984 by the Washington Redskins, Singer spent the season on injured reserve and was released in 1985. He signed with the Seahawks in 1986, playing in 11 games as a reserve tackle and on special teams. He spent the 1987 season on IR with an ankle injury and was released in 1988. Singer was signed by the Detroit Lions, only to be traded in 1989 to the Seahawks, who waived him that summer. He then joined the New York Jets, but returned to the Seahawks for the 1990 and 1991 seasons. His return in ’90 was prompted by an injury to starting tackle Ron Mattes. “I might be here a week and I might be here 10 years,” Singer said at the time.

What he’s doing: Singer, who turned 51 last Sunday, still lives in the area – North Bend, to be exact. But what’s he up to? “I’ve been doing a lot of hunting and fishing,” he said. “I’ve actually not done a whole lot besides hunt and fish for a while now. I’m living the good life.”


If I could have dinner with anyone – living or dead – it would be: “That’s a tough, tough choice. I’d like to have dinner with Joe Theismann. I spent a year with him in Washington and I always thought really highly of him.”

Must-see TV: “I like those pawn shows. But I don’t watch a lot of TV. I like to be outside.”

The best book I’ve ever read: “Books are those things you open and they’ve got all those little pages in it? (Laughs). I just read it, and I can’t think of the name. I actually read quite a few books, but I can’t think of the name of that book.”


My best memory as a Seahawk: “Probably it would have been the ’86 season. Looking back at it, I think we had a very good team and everybody worked together (the Seahawks went 10-6, including beating both teams that advanced to the Super Bowl, the Giants and Broncos; but did not advance to the playoffs). I don’t have any single-game memories. But the ’86 team, I always think about that we were just a hair away from going a long way in the playoffs.”

Something most people don’t know about me: “I’m a really nice guy.”

If I could relive one day in my life: “The day in 1983, the homecoming game at the University of Tennessee where my whole family was there.”
