Walter Jones is given the franchise tag for the third consecutive year. Despite reporting late, the left tackle would be voted to his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl. Before his career was over, Jones was voted to a club-record nine Pro Bowls. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Feb. 1, 2014 – the day before the Seahawks beat the Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Nate Odomes, a two-time Pro Bowl cornerback for the Bills, is signed in free agency. Knee injuries, however, would prevent Odomes from ever playing for the Seahawks.
Kevin Glover, a three-time Pro Bowl center for the Lions, signs with the Seahawks in free agency. But injuries would limit him to 14 starts in two seasons with the Seahawks.
Olindo Mare is given the franchise tag, and the veteran kicker responds by hitting 25 of 30 field goal attempts – including extending his consecutive kick streak that began in 2009 to a franchise record 30 in a row.
