Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Wednesday, March 4 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Like Father Like Son
Back in 2007, Seahawks tight end Greg Olsen was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. He joined the team during a time that a particular offensive lineman by the name of Terrence Metcalf was also on the team.
Yes, Terrence Metcalf, otherwise known as the father of Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf. Olsen and Terrence played two seasons together before Metcalf departed for the Lions in 2009.
Fast forward 13 years to 2020, Olsen will be suiting up in a Seahawks uniform to play with a member of the next generation of Metcalf's, DK.
In a recent interview with the Dan Patrick Show, Olsen dove into the subject. "I actually played in Chicago with DK Metcalf's father. So that's how old I am/how young he is… This is going to be the first time in my career that I will play with a father and son. His father was Terrence Metcalf. He was one of our offensive lineman in Chicago my first year or so up there and here I am all these years later playing with his kid."
This is likely Olsen's first time playing with two generations of the same family, not a common thing you see often in sports.
Social Post Of The Day
Today's 'Social Post of the Day' comes from our official Twitter account, as we reshare a photo of wide receiver Tyler Lockett and his mother from when he was a kid.
Seahawks safety Tedric Thompson, joined by Blitz and the Seahawks Dancers, visited Thurgood Marshall Elementary School to 'tackle reading' for Read Across America Day.
