Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Friday, December 23 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks' Mr. Versatility, Nick Bellore, Is Back With A New Episode Of "Between Two Bellores"
It's been quite a journey for Seahawks 33-year-old linebacker/fullback/special teams ace/funny man Nick Bellore, as he continues to prove just how versatile he is in season No.12. Whether on or off the field, Bellore is the gift that keeps giving.
Since going undrafted out of Central Michigan in 2011, Bellore has maintained staying power for over a decade by being reliable in a bevy of ways. Picked up by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent, Bellore earned his stripes on kickoffs, earning 2014 Pro Football Focus All-Pro Special Teams honors. The Jets tried Bellore at fullback briefly, experimenting with finding different ways to utilize his wide skill set.
After brief stints with the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions, Bellore signed with the Seahawks in 2019.
More than a decade after his career began, it's Seattle where Bellore found his most success. Bellore joins New England Patriots cornerback Marcus Jones as the only two players in the NFL to have logged 10-plus snaps each on defense, offense and special teams this season. It's also where he's gotten the biggest chance to be himself off the field - hence his Between Two Bellores interview series.
Pairing Seahawks players with witty, dry humor has been a big success, leading to the renewal of the series. Now, Bellore is a 2022 Pro Bowl alternate, after earning the honor for the first time in 2020.
At all-three phases of the game, Bellore is a factor for the 7-7 Seahawks. From filling lanes on kickoffs, to shedding blocks in pursuit, Bellore continues to set himself apart - and redefine the path for undrafted players.
