Friday Round-Up: Shaquem Griffin Reflects On Rookie Season In Blog Post

Good morning, 12s.

Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Friday, March 15 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

New Year, New Me

With the new league year having officially started on Wednesday, rookies are no longer rookies and the free agency frenzy (emphasis on the ‘frenzy’) has begun. Seahawks linebacker Shaquem Griffin expressed his gratitude to the Seattle sports community, specifically the 12s, in a tweet Friday morning. “My rookie year is over and I cannot believe the support the #12s gave me! Blessings were all around but it’s time to work for 2019,” tweeted Griffin.

The linebacker also took the opportunity to promote a post from his “newest blog” in which he reflects back on his rookie season. The blog post was published back in January but the content and overall message within the post remains relevant. Griffin highlights what his goal was going into his rookie season and expresses his excitement for the 2019 season.

To wrap up the post, Griffin addresses the 12s with a heartfelt message, saying, “12s, I just want to thank you guys for welcoming me! To be a part of the Seahawks organization and the Seattle community has been a blessing. Big things are coming so make sure you’re locked into my platform to see what I’m up to during the offseason. Outside of getting ready for next season of course! #GoHawks.”

Griffin was a fifth-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft and spent his time making big plays on special teams and filling in at weakside LB for K.J. Wright in Week 1.
