Happy Blue Friday, 12s!
Let's take a look at what is going on around Seahawks football this Friday, February 28.
Metcalf Impressed From Day One
With the NFL Scouting Combine in full swing, it makes sense to reflect back on the incredible performance put on by DK Metcalf. From running a 4.33 40-yard to putting up 27 reps on the bench press to showing off a 40.5" vertical, there was plenty to talk about. Oh, and then there was this:
Despite the gaudy numbers, the Seahawks found him available in the second round and the decision was easy.
"Through our process, we just didn't see the negatives that other people saw," Carroll said. "We were really fortunate that he was there when we had our opportunity. It was a really extraordinary moment when he was still there and we picked him. We thought that should've never happened. He did everything to make it work and we're really proud of the whole thing."
On This Date
Today marks the 19th anniversary of the Nisqually earthquake rocking the Puget Sound area. The 6.8 magnitude earthquake damaged the Seahawks marketing headquarters at Palmer Court, forcing them to move out of the building. The new stadium was not damaged and workers resumed construction less than one week later.
