Thursday Round-Up: Bradley McDougald Shares His 'My Cause, My Cleats' Story

Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald shows off his 'My Cause, My Cleats' kicks and explains why he chose to support Make-A-Wish with his shoes during Sunday Night Football at CenturyLink Field.

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's out there for today — Thursday, November 30 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

Uninterrupted With Bradley McDougald

Bradley McDougald is one of 30-plus Seahawks players set to participate in the NFL's 'My Cause, My Cleats' initiative this weekend, and on Thursday morning, the Seahawks safety showed off his special kicks in a social media video for Uninterrupted, explaining why he'll support Make-A-Wish with his shoes during Seattle's Sunday Night Football matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles at CenturyLink Field.

"The reason I chose Make-A-Wish foundation is because when I was a lot younger, probably about third grade, my older brother was in the fifth grade and he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma," McDougald said. "If you don't know what that is, it's a bone cancer and he had it in the fifth grade, so his fight was very early. Make-A-Wish foundation stepped up huge for my brother and my family. They granted him a wish, he got to do different things around the community and just get out. It kind of was a distraction for my brother as he was fighting against cancer and trying to stay positive and they just did an awesome job, so now I feel like I'm in a position to give back and do for someone else. I feel like Make-A-Wish foundation is a great organization, they do a lot of great things for kids in a really bad situation. So no doubt, easy decision for me."

*It's just that … most of them will be referring to Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz, who's led his team to a league-best 10-1 record while posting a passer rating of 104.0. They should be referring to Russell. *
