Friday Round-Up: Seahawks Will Travel Fourth-Most Miles In 2015

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, May 29 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Bon Voyage 

With the Seahawks playing in the upper left corner of the United States, a location former Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck once referred to as "Southern Alaska," the team can expect to endure some of the longest road trips in the NFL each year.

In 2014, the Seahawks traveled 26,028 miles in the regular season. It was second-most miles traveled in the League to the Oakland Raiders (36,078), a fellow West Coast team that flew nine times last year thanks to a "home" game against the Miami Dolphins that took place in London, England.

John Breech at CBSSports.com has estimated how many miles each NFL club will travel in 2015, and once again, the Seahawks are near the top of the list.

According to Breech, Seattle will navigate an estimated 25,086 miles this season, fourth-most in the League to the San Francisco 49ers (27,998), Miami Dolphins (26,452), and Oakland Raiders (26,336). To put Seattle's number in perspective, the team will travel more miles than a trip "around the world," which measures roughly 25,000 miles.

The Seahawks finished 5-3 on the road last year. They'll look to improve on that mark this season with trips to Arizona, San Francisco, St. Louis, Green Bay, Cincinnati, Dallas, Minnesota, and Baltimore.
