On this date: Tim Ruskell named president of football operations

Posted Feb 23, 2014

A look at a couple of memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Feb. 23.

2005: Tim Ruskell is named president of football operations. In the first draft under Ruskell, the Seahawks would select linebackers Lofa Tatupu and Leroy Hill.

2006: Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson is given the transition tag rather than the franchise tag, a move that leads to him signing an offer sheet with the Vikings that the Seahawks decline to match. Hutchinson, the most-highly decorated guard in franchise history, had been voted to the Pro Bowl for three consecutive seasons (2003-05) and named All-Pro in 2003 and 2005.
