A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on March 4.

2012: Marshawn Lynch, on the verge of becoming an unrestricted free agent, re-signs with the Seahawks. The Beast Mode back then puts together an All-Pro and Pro Bowl season while posting career-bests in rushing yards (1,590), per-carry average (5.0), longest run (77 yards) and 100-yard rushing games (10). Lynch continued to be a pivotal player in the run to the franchise’s first Super Bowl championship, running for 1,257 yards and scoring a career-high 14 touchdowns during the regular season and adding 288 rushing yards and four TDs in three postseason games.

2003: The club re-signs unrestricted free agents Anthony Simmons and Antonio Cochran. Simmons then leads the Seahawks in tackles for the third time in four seasons.

2004: Grant Wistrom signs with the Seahawks in free agency. The former Rams defensive end starts 41 games over the next three seasons and is selected a captain on the Seahawks’ 2005 Super Bowl team.
