Seahawks to put Walter Jones in Ring of Honor on Sunday
As the Seahawks return to CenturyLink Field after a two-week road trip, it’s officially homecoming weekend in Seattle. They’ll commemorate the occasion by unveiling an 11th member of the team’s Ring of Honor.
The Seahawks have announced that 2014 Hall of Famer Walter Jones will join a group that already includes Steve Largent, Jim Zorn, Dave Brown, Pete Gross, Curt Warner, Jacob Green, Kenny Easley, Dave Krieg, Chuck Knox, and Cortez Kennedy.
Jones spent 13 years with the Seahawks, from 1997 through 2009. He starter 180 games during his career with the team, and he made it to the Hall of Fame on the first ballot.
Jones’ No. 71 previously has been retired by the Seahawks. Largent’s No. 80, Kennedy’s No. 96, and No. 12 (in honor of the fans) also have been retired.
