Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Wednesday, February 8 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

Eight Seahawks Make PFF's Top 101 Players 

The 2016 NFL season has come to a close, and now it's time to reflect on it. 

Analysts over at Pro Football Focus counted down the 101 best players from the year using the same information and input from their daily play-by-play grading system. The list also factored in performances from the postseason. 

A whopping eight Seahawks players made the list, with three of the eight cracking the top-50. Bobby Wagner (11), Kam Chancellor (34), Russell Wilson (42), Doug Baldwin (63), Michael Bennett (70), K.J. Wright (81), Richard Sherman (91) and Jimmy Graham (92) received mention. 

Here's what PFF had to say about the All-Pro Wagner, who topped the list for Seattle players after racking up a franchise-record 167 tackles: 

*Seattle's Bobby Wagner was one of the league's best run defenders, and a true force for the Seahawks in that area. His ability to read plays quickly, work his way between blocks and still arrive at the ball carrier ready to not just passively make a stop, but to deliver a hit, was unrivaled. He ended the year with 60 defensive stops and allowed just one touchdown all season in coverage. Unlike many off-the-ball linebackers, he was also a significant force as a pass-rusher on the blitz, where he tallied five sacks, 14 hits and seven hurries over the season. *

Best performance:*Week 4 vs. Jets, 86.8 grade *
