Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Tuesday, January 28 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

Shaquill Griffin Right At Home In Pro Bowl Debut

Playing at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, third-year cornerback Shaquill Griffin made the most of a sweet homecoming for his Pro Bowl debut last Sunday.

The University of Central Florida alum grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, and played alongside his twin brother Shaquem Griffin before being drafted by the Seahawks in 2017. Fast forward to last Sunday, Griffin looked and played right at home, recording three tackles amongst the NFL's top defensive backs.

Postgame, Griffin shared his thoughts on his unforgettable experience.

"It was amazing, I was just truly grateful," Griffin said. "I've been taking it all in and enjoying it. To be back home to play this game has been a blessing."

Pro Bowl week featured a little of everything for Griffin. The cornerback visited the NFL Flag Football Championships held at ESPN Wide World of Sports, jumped into a Wounded Warrior flag football game, and even participated in magic tricks with Julius Dein. Best of all, Griffin shared the experience with family and twin brother Shaquem.

"Having him right by my side made this moment even more great," Griffin said. "Once I said I'm in, he said he was in too because we enjoy this thing together. If I'm in, he's in. It's been the experience of a lifetime."

"It was everything I thought it would be. Just a great time being with some legendary guys and I enjoyed every bit of it," Griffin said.
