Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Monday, February 3 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Jones And Largent: NFL Top 100 Players
Prior to kickoff of Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Seahawks Legends Walter Jones and Steve Largent stood amongst many other NFL players, some current and some former, as the League honored their Top 100 players.
Both Jones and Largent were named to the NFL 100 All-Time Team, a roster of 100 players and 10 coaches named 'The Greatest' in their respective positions, back in November of 2018. NFL Network revealed the roster over a six-week period with the help of hosts Rich Eisen, Cris Collinsworth, and Bill Belichick.
Jones, the Hall of Fame offensive tackle was one of seven offensive linemen to make the official roster while Largent, the Hall of Fame wide receiver, was one of 10 wide receivers. Some other notable players on the NFL 100 All-Time Team include running back Walter Payton, quarterback Joe Montana, and head coach Don Shula. Obviously, there are a lot more on the roster that you'd recognize, as they are the League's Top 100 players.
Jones kept his Twitter followers up-to-date throughout the Super Bowl week and most of his posts featured himself wearing the red NFL Top 100 jacket. Between this, his gold Hall of Fame jacket, and Seahawks Ring of Honor jacket, Jones has quite the honorable collection of formal wear.
What stood out to me the most though as I watched the pregame recognition of the All-Time Team, was Jones wearing a '96' button on his new jacket in honor of the late Cortez Kennedy. Kennedy, a Seahawks Legend and Hall of Fame defensive tackle, was one of Jones' best friends and biggest influences.
In his most recent post as he points to the button in the stands of Hard Rock Stadium, Jones writes, "As the day wraps up, I wouldn't miss the opportunity to thank Cortez Kennedy. You taught me a lot. From how to be a pro, to how to be a good dad. From making sure to talk to people that make the @Seahawks run, to how to treat fans. Tonight, we're both recognized."
Congratulations to Steve Largent and Walter Jones, and rest in peace Cortez Kennedy.
