Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, January 30 - about your Seattle Seahawks: 

Seahawks Shine at Pro Bowl

Seven Seahawks represented the NFC at the 2017 Pro Bowl on Sunday night in Orlando, Florida, and although the conference fell to the AFC side, 20-13, Seattle players Cliff Avril, Doug Baldwin, Michael Bennett, Jimmy Graham, Richard Sherman, Bobby Wagner, and K.J. Wright all found time to shine in the NFL's annual all-star game. Here's a look at how each player performed:

DE Cliff Avril:Appearing in the first Pro Bowl of his nine-year career, Avril, who tallied a career-high 11.5 sacks in 2016, finished the game with two tackles, including a sack of Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers in the fourth quarter.

WR Doug Baldwin:Baldwin had the NFC's lone touchdown of the night, taking a second-quarter toss from New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees in for a 47-yard score. Baldwin, playing in his first Pro Bowl, was one of four captains for the NFC. He finished with three catches for 67 yards.

DE Michael Bennett:Bennett, the defensive MVP of last year's Pro Bowl game in Hawaii, recorded 2.0 sacks on the night, bringing down Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton in the second quarter and Rivers in the fourth. Bennett also forced and recovered a first-quarter fumble of Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray.

TE Jimmy Graham: Graham hauled in five of his eight targets on Sunday night, picking up 29 yards and three first downs in the process.

CB Richard Sherman:Sherman intercepted a second-quarter deep ball down the right sideline from Dalton that was intended for Denver Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders, returning it six yards the other way to help set up Baldwin's score. 

LB Bobby Wagner: Wagner, Seattle's middle linebacker who was also named a captain for the NFC team, finished with four tackles, and even though it was Bennett who received credit for the first-quarter forced fumble, Wagner looked to be in on the turnover as well. 

LB K.J. Wright:Playing in the first Pro Bowl of his six-year career, Wright, who set career-highs with 126 tackles and 4.0 sacks this past season, was in on four tackles at Sunday's Pro Bowl.
