Wednesday Round-Up: Marshawn Lynch, Shaun Alexander Nominated For College Football Hall of Fame

Seahawks Legends Marshawn Lynch and Shaun Alexander are both among the nominees for the next College Football Hall of Fame class.


Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Wednesday, June 2 – for your Seattle Seahawks.

Seahawks Legends Nominated For College Football Hall of Fame

Two of the greatest running backs in Seahawks history are up for distinct honors. Seahawks Legends Marshawn Lynch and Shaun Alexander were both nominated for the College Football Hall of Fame, which was announced Wednesday.

Lynch played three seasons for Cal, totaling 3,230 rushing yards, 600 receiving yards and 35 total touchdowns. The Golden Bears went 28-9 over Lynch's three years and won two bowl games.

Alexander played four seasons at Alabama, racking up 3,565 rushing yards, 798 receiving yards and 49 total touchdowns. The 2005 NFL MVP was unanimously named SEC Player of the Year in 1999 for the 10-3 Crimson Tide.

Seahawks Undrafted Rookie WR Could Be Among 'Biggest Steals'

The Seahawks signed 13 undrafted free agents following the 2021 NFL Draft. The group -- which included four O-linemen and three receivers, among others -- should have a chance to compete for roster spots at training camp over the summer.

Among the class of undrafted players, former Florida State wide receiver Tamorrion Terry is garnering national attention. Bleacher Report's Chris Roling listed six undrafted rookies he believes “could make noise this summer.” Here's what Roling wrote about Terry and why he is so high on the former Seminole:

"The Seattle Seahawks appeared to get one of undrafted free agency's biggest steals in Florida State wideout Tamorrion Terry.

"Terry regressed hard last year statistically while appearing in just six games compared to 25 over the prior two seasons. That hardly seemed like a good enough reason for him to be passed over by all 32 teams considering he produced 2,221 yards (18.8 yards per catch) in three collegiate seasons.

"Simply put, Terry is a big-play machine who averaged 21.3 and 19.8 yards per catch in each of his first two seasons. His 6'3", 207-pound frame with a huge catch radius should have him making big plays in camp, even over seasoned veterans.

"Obviously, Terry is a long way from cracking the top of the depth chart next to DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but he's got the talent and sub-package usefulness to quickly ascend. Be on the lookout for some viral moments from Terry this summer."

NFL Throwback Remembers Historic Seahawks-Chiefs Game From 1990

Many of the Seahawks' most memorable games in franchise history have come in recent years. Seattle has made the playoffs in 14 of the last 18 years, with a trio of Super Bowl appearances and dozens of unforgettable games along the way.

One historic Seahawks game was highlighted on the league's "NFL Throwback" YouTube account on Tuesday, but it wasn't a recent game you might remember.

It was Nov. 11, 1990 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The Seahawks narrowly defeated the Chiefs, 17-16. The story of the game was the Chiefs' Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas, who totaled an NFL-record seven sacks in a losing effort. On the final play of the game, Paul Skansi caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from Dave Krieg to give Seattle the victory.

Here are the highlights from the game (via NFL Throwback):
