Good afternoon, 12s. 

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Wednesday, July 5 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

Three Seahawks Make's Top Safeties Of All-Time 

For, senior analyst and former Dallas Cowboys VP of player personnel Gil Brandt published his 31 greatest safeties in football history.

Three Seahawks players made Brandt's list in Kam Chancellor (No. 23), Earl Thomas (No. 19) and Kenny Easley (No. 7).

Chancellor and Thomas are two of four current players to be featured on the list (the other two being Eric Weddle and Eric Berry). The formidable safety duo, one that was recently tabbed one of the most feared groups, has helped lead Seattle's defense to prominence, including the franchise's first Super Bowl title. 

The five-time Pro Bowler Easley, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next month, played for the Seahawks from 1981 until 1987 and recorded 32 career interceptions in his legendary career.
