Seahawks Defensive Back DeShawn Shead Marries "Best Friend" Jessica Martinez

Defensive back DeShawn Shead is the latest Seahawk to join the 'Legion of Groom'

Seahawks defensive back DeShawn Shead proposed to his girlfriend Jessica Martinez following the Seahawks' 26-20 overtime win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday at CenturyLink Field.

DeShawn Shead, who proposed to Jessica Martinez at CenturyLink Field's 50-yard line following a 2014 overtime win against the Denver Broncos, is the latest Seahawk to join the 'Legion of Groom' after marrying his "Best Friend" this past Saturday in Seattle.

"Had an amazing time on Saturday, one of the best days of my life!" Shead captioned in an Instagram post on Monday. "Finally, had the wedding ceremony where all my true family and friends witnessed me marrying my Best Friend. It's truly a blessing to be married to such a beautiful, smart, and powerful woman who completes me. It is truly a blessing to have such amazing family and friends there to go out of there way to support us. I am thankful and happy to go on this journey."

The defensive back's wedding comes on the heels of ceremonies for punter Jon Ryan and comedian Sarah Colonna, as well as quarterback Russell Wilson and singer Ciara, couples who tied the knot earlier this month. 

Several of Shead's teammates attended his special day, including Wilson, linebackers K.J. Wright, Brock Coyle, and Mike Morgan, receiver Jermaine Kearse, safety Steven Terrell, cornerback Richard Sherman, as well as defensive coordinator Kris Richard and former Seahawks Jeron Johnson and Malcolm Smith.
