Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Wednesday, January 4— about your Seattle Seahawks:
Mawae A Pro Football Hall of Fame Finalist
On Wednesday afternoon, the NFL trimmed 26 modern-era semifinalists for the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame class to 15. The group joins three other finalists for consideration into this year's class.
Former Seahawks center Kevin Mawae was named one of the 15 modern-era players. Mawae, who was a second-round pick by Seattle in 1994, played with the team until 1997 before stints with the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, where he went on to make the Pro Bowl eight times and was named a first-team All-Pro three seasons.
Joining Mawae as a finalist is legendary Seahawks safety Kenny Easley, who was announced as a senior finalist in August by the Seniors Committee, which reviews the qualifications of those players whose careers ended more than 25 years ago.
