A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Feb. 23:

2005: Tim Ruskell is named president of football operations. In the first draft under Ruskell, the Seahawks would select linebackers Lofa Tatupu and Leroy Hill. Tatupu would start 84 games over the next six seasons, and become the only player in franchise history to lead the team in tackles four consecutive seasons (2005-08); while Hill would start 89 games over the next eight seasons.

2006: Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson is given the transition tag rather than the franchise tag, a move that leads to him signing an offer sheet with the Vikings that the Seahawks decline to match. Hutchinson, the most-highly decorated guard in franchise history, had been voted to the Pro Bowl for three consecutive seasons (2003-05) and named All-Pro in 2003 and 2005.
