Jacob Green Enters College Football Hall Of Fame

Former Seahawks defensive lineman Jacob Green, who in 1995 became the second defensive player inducted to the team's Ring of Honor, was announced as part of the 2019 College Football Hall of Fame Class on Monday for his impact at Texas A&M.

Green set a Texas A&M school record when he recorded 20 sacks in 1979, earning first-team All-American honors in the process. He finished his Aggie career with 38 career sacks, which ranks second all-time at the school, and 283 total tackles as he helped guide the school to two bowl games.

Green was the No. 10 overall pick in the 1980 NFL Draft by the Seahawks and spent 12 seasons with the club, earning two Pro Bowl nods, one in 1986 and another in 1987. He has played in the fifth-most games (178), has the third-most starts (176), fifth-most tackles (718), most fumble recoveries (17), and most sacks (116.0) in Seahawks history.
