A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on March 2.

2001: Matt Hasselbeck is acquired in a trade with the Green Bay Packers. The teams switch picks in the first round of that year’s NFL Draft and the Seahawks also give the Packers a third-round draft choice. In starting 131 games over the next 10 seasons, Hasselbeck becomes the franchise’s all-time leader in completions and passing yards, ranks second in victories and is voted to the 35th Anniversary team.
