Cortez Kennedy


Cortez Kennedy became the 10th member inducted into the Seahawks Ring of Honor on September 17, 2006 and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on February 4, 2012. Kennedy established himself as one of the premier interior defensive linemen in the game while playing 11 NFL seasons (1990-2000), all with the Seahawks. He appeared in eight Pro Bowls, and a franchise-record six consecutive Pro Bowls (1991-96), including four as a starter. The three-time All-Pro is found throughout the Seahawks' record books, ranking eighth on the club's all-time list in games played (167), seventh in games started (153) and 10th in tackles (668). Kennedy ranks fourth in sacks (58), yards lost on sacks (392.0), and forced fumbles (13). His finest season came in 1992 when he became the second Sea­hawks player to win the Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award (Kenny Easley, 1984) after recording 93 tackles (76 solo), 14.0 sacks, five forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries. The 1999 Co-Defensive Captain, Kennedy helped lead Seattle back to the postseason for the first time since 1988.
