On this date: Jim Zorn inducted into Ring of Honor

Posted Aug 3, 2013

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Aug. 3.

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), marks that would be surpassed by Dave Krieg and then Matt Hasselbeck.

2001: Trent Dilfer, who had led the 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 Packers, coach Mike Holmgren wanted a veteran backup.

2002: The team christens its new home field – then Seahawks Stadium and now CenturyLink Field – with an intra-squad scrimmage. The Seahawks are 64-30 in 11 seasons at the state-of-the-art venue, including playoff games and also posted the only unbeaten home regular-season records in franchise history (2003, 2005 and 2012).
