Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Friday, September 13 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Alexander, Krieg, Warren, Hutch, Watters, Feagles, James, And More
On Thursday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame released their list of Modern-Era nominees for the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2020. Out of the 122 players on the list, twelve of the names you would recognize as Seahawks Legends.
This notable twelve includes quarterback Dave Krieg, running backs Shaun Alexander, Edgerrin James and Chris Warren, guards Steve Hutchinson and Ricky Watters, center Ray Donaldson, safety Merton Hanks, cornerback Terry McDaniel, kicker Ryan Longwell, and punters Jeff Feagles and Rohn Stark. Hutchinson, who played in Seattle from 2000 to 2005, finds his way on the nominees list for the third year in a row after being a finalist for the Class of 2019.
A news release from Canton, Ohio, states that “the large list of Modern-Era nominees includes only players whose careers ended less than 25 seasons ago. The nominees include 63 offensive players, 43 defensive players, and 16 special teams players.”
This list of players is set to be reduced to 25 semifinalists in November, and then to 15 finalists in early January of 2020. After those cuts, the finalists will then be presented to the full 48-member Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee during its annual meeting on ‘Selection Saturday,’ the day before Super Bowl LIV.
