12 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About Seahawks Linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis

How many of these things do you know about linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis?

You may know him as "KPL." DeShawn Shead calls him "P-Lou." Seahawks coaches have taken to calling him "Peanut." Say what?

The story behind that nickname tops our list of 12 things you (probably) don't know about Seahawks second-year linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis:

1. His nickname is "Peanut"

Pierre-Louis: "There was a game last year we were playing in, and on the screen you see Bruce [Irvin], who's about 6'3, 250-something pounds, KJ's about 6'4, and then you see me – about 6 feet, 225 or such, and one of the coaches said, 'Hey, look at little Peanut.'"

Defensive players including Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor congratulate teammate Jimmy Staten after it was announced he would be a game captain for the contest against the Chiefs.

2. He's a cat person

Pierre-Louis: "Right now, I just have my orange tabby, Cash. He's about 9 months old. But before, I had a bunch of reptiles. I actually brought my snake to work last year and scared the mess out of people. It was in my backpack."

What can I say, she loves her Dad. #Baby

3. His prized possession is a poster

Pierre-Louis: "It's a picture of my last game senior year of high school, with four other captains walking out to the coin toss. If there was a fire and I could grab one thing, I'd grab that. It just means the world to me."

4. He has a hidden talent

Pierre-Louis: "I'm very artistic. I can draw very well. I've always been told by peers I should draw more because I don't draw that often, but when I do, I'm not gonna lie: It is pretty good."

5. He's a picky eater

Pierre-Louis:"I won't touch anything with peppers or onions in there. No, thank you."

9. He's a fan of Katy Perry

Pierre-Louis: "But I make sure when it comes on my shuffle, I turn it down a little bit."
