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.'"


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."

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."
