Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today – Tuesday, July 19 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks Legend Walter Jones On Flightless Bird Podcast Presented By Armchair Expert
The Armchair Expert podcast sets out to get insight on the behind the scenes of professionals in various fields. In the latest episode, host David Farrier, a native of New Zealand, wanted to better understand the game of American football. He enlisted Seahawks Legend and Pro Football Hall of Fame lineman Walter Jones to get a rundown on life in the NFL.
In 1997, the Seahawks selected Florida State alum Walter Jones with the No. 6 pick. Jones would go on to earn a spot on the NFL's 100th Anniversary All-Time Team, Seahawks Ring of Honor and ultimately the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Jones would start every game he played in his career, 180 games total.
Jones brought Farrier into Lumen Field to get a better look at the Seahawks locker room, and a feel for the pre-game preparation.
"I used to lay my outfit out before I wore it," said Jones "I tell people all the time, you want to see how it looks before you put it on your body. I always did that, I learned that from Deion Sanders."
Farrier and Jones went through everything from the pure basics of football, to the intricacies of X's and O's in the playbook. Jones not only gives candid insight into the mind of a player, but the toll the game has taken on his body, and how he keeps going.
"Doing the things you need to do in the offseason, preparing yourself," said Jones. "You see a lot of guys now playing forever, because guys are knowing what it takes to be ready to play. There is no offseason, you may take a month off, but then you're right back in it."
But the episode isn't all football talk, as the two discuss other things in life, like travel, and aliens.
Check out the full podcast and all of Jones' stories about his day with the Seahawks days, here.
