It’s truly an honor. Last week I was named the number 11 player out of the top 100 NFL players. To be put in a class of such incredible athletes is truly an amazing feeling. I want to thank you for acknowledging me as the number 11 player in the league. I'm having a blast out here and I can't wait for the upcoming season.
So far, six other teammates of mine were also listed in the Top 100, including Michael Bennett (No. 90), Bobby Wagner (No. 69), Kam Chancellor (No. 41), Jimmy Graham (No. 31), Russell Wilson (No. 22) and Earl Thomas (No. 21). To have that many Seahawks recognized as top 100 players really reflects on the type of team we have. We have a lot of talent on this squad and I attribute this to the hard work and extra hours that we all put in day in and day out.
12s, you are a big part of who we are as a team, I thank you for the energy week in and week out and even during the offseason. We may have come up short last season, but we are hungry as ever for another shot at the Super Bowl. Let’s do this!
