Found June 02, 2013 on Outside the Boxscore:
Back on Saturday, the Seattle Seahawks were doing their usual OTA's as a special guest was catching passes from quarterback Russell Wilson. That man was country music star Kenny Chesney and the below video shows him in a Seahawks helmet grabbing receptions: Some of you might ask, "Who did Kenny know to get the special treatment?"
