Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today – Thursday, March 24 – about your Seattle Seahawks.

Steve Largent Jersey is Top-Selling Throwback

Mitchell & Ness, a Philadelphia-based company that specializes in vintage sporting goods published a list of the top-selling throwback jerseys in each state, and for the second straight year, former Seahawks receiver Steve Largent is No. 1 in Washington among former NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL players.

Largent, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Seahawks Ring of Honor, also earned top honors in Maine, surpassing last year's best-seller in the Pine Tree State, Dave Winfield.

Former Boston Celtics great Larry Bird is the top seller in five states, the most of any athlete, while Kobe Bryant is No. 1 in overall sales (is it a throwback if he's still playing?).

Tweet of the Day

Today's Tweet of the day comes from tight end Jimmy Graham, whose Miami Hurricanes are playing Villanova in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament today. Graham's Tweet includes a link to a highlight video of his hoops-playing days at Miami.  

More From Around The Web

Here at Seahawks.com, we have a recap of Pete Carroll's session with the media at the NFL annual meetings, including his optimism about the offensive line despite losing two starters.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times checks in from the NFL annual meetings in Boca Raton, and says Pete Carroll is "particularly excited" about the way his team has bounced back from its playoff loss in Carolina.

You can find more of the Times' coverage from the annual league meetings here.

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia was also in Boca Raton, and has lots of good stuff here.

And finally, with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hitting theaters this week, NFL.com has a super hero mock draft. They have Seattle taking the Joker with the 26th pick.

"The Clown Prince of Crime has terrorized Gotham City for quite some time. Thriving on chaos, he's simply too erratic for many teams and he'll likely plummet to this late in the draft. But if there's anything that gets Joker performing at his best, it's an audience. He's a great fit for the 12th man in Seattle. Joker's unpredictability will go well with the Legion of Boom. Offenses will never know what hit them."

Take a look at which Seahawks players' alma maters are still alive in the Sweet 16 of the 2016 NCAA men's basketball tournament.
