Seattle Seahawks Dave Brown Ring Of Honor


Dave Brown


Inducted into the Ring of Honor in 1992, Dave Brown was an 11-year starter in the Seahawks' secondary from 1976-86. Com­ing over from the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Veteran Allocation Draft in 1976, Brown played at the free safety position leading the team with four interceptions. The following season No. 22 would shift over to the right-side cornerback position where he would be the "cornerstone" of the Seahawks' defense for the next 10 years, picking off another 46 passes, retiring as the all-time Seahawks leader in the category with 50. In 1984, Brown picked off eight passes and was named to the AFC Pro Bowl squad and first-team All-NFL by NFL Films. Two of those interceptions were part of a NFL-record four interception returns for touchdowns on November 4, 1984, against the Kansas City Chiefs. Brown had returns of 90 and 58 yards. Brown retired as the Seahawks' leader in interception return yards (643), interception returns for touchdowns (5), and the aforementioned interceptions (50).
