On this date: Farewell to the Kingdome

Posted Mar 26, 2014

A look at a couple of memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on March 26

2000: The Kingdome, the Seahawks’ home since their inaugural season in 1976, is imploded to make way for the team’s new stadium that would open in 2002. The Seahawks played at Husky Stadium on the University of Washington campus for two seasons before moving into their new state-of-the-art stadium that now goes by CenturyLink Field.

2008: Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Trufant is signed to a multiyear extension. Trufant started 94 games in his first six seasons with the club after being selected in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He was voted to the Pro Bowl after intercepting a career-high seven passes in 2007. Trufant started 16 games in 2008 and 2010, but injuries limited him to 13 starts combined in 2009 and 2011.
