Thursday Rewind: Walter Jones joins the Seahawks Huddle
This Sunday, the greatest offensive lineman in Seahawks history will be honored when his number “71” jersey will be raised to the Qwest Field rafters.
Future Hall of Famer Walter Jones joined the “Seahawks Huddle” Thursday, where he is looking forward to seeing his jersey up in the rafters next to Steve Largent’s “80” and the 12th Man’s “12”.
