The Greatest Seahawk Of Them All
As expected, Seahawks great Walter Jones has retired. We’ll let these two paragraphs sum up why that’s significant:
The team is immediately retiring Jones’ number 71 jersey. Former Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren has called Jones the best offensive player he ever coached, and Holmgren has coached Brett Favre, Joe Montana, Steve Young and Jerry Rice.
The Seahawks have only retired two other jerseys, No. 80 for Hall of Fame wide receiver Steve Largent and No. 12, for their “12th Man,” the team’s fans.
It’s a well-deserved honor. Jones is, unquestionably, the greatest player in Seahawks history.
