Seattle Seahawks Walter Jones Ring Of Honor


Walter Jones


Walter Jones was the 11th member inducted in to the Ring of Honor, and the 10th player chosen. Since coming to Seattle as a first-round pick in 1997, Jones started all 180 games played while becoming the most dominant left tackle of his time. In 13 seasons, he was called for holding nine times and in 5,703 pass attempts, surrendered just 23 sacks according to coaches statistics. He was selected to nine Pro Bowls (1999, 2001-08), passing Cortez Kennedy for most in team history, and was also a six-time AP All-Pro (1st Team in 2001, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2nd Team in 2006 and 2008). Seattle selected Jones with the sixth overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft, which was acquired in a draft-day trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for Seattle's first-round pick (#12, RB Warrick Dunn) and third-round pick (#66, CB Ronde Barber). Jones ranks fourth in Seattle history in games played (180) and second in games started (180). He became the first Seahawks player to reach double-digits in postseason appearances and was inducted in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on August 2, 2014.
