(Eds: Adds details, quotes.) Leon Washington wants to go down as the best kick returner to ever play in the NFL.
His seven kickoff return touchdowns are second all-time to the eight by Cleveland Browns return specialist Joshua Cribbs.
In 2010, Washington's three kick return touchdowns were critical in helping the Seahawks make the playoffs in Pete Carroll's first season as head coach. But last year, the Seahawks special teams unit wasn't successful in paving the way to the end zone for Washington. It was the first time in Washington's career that he had more than 40 kick return chances and failed to find the end zone.
In the team's season opener against Arizona last week, Washington was able to break an 83-yard kickoff return that set Seattle up in prime position for the Seahawks' only touchdown of the game. He then managed to break free for 52 yards on a punt return that led to a field goal to give Seattle a 16-13 lead in the fourth quarter.

Last season, heading into training camp, Doug Baldwin was simply hoping to make the final roster. Coming out of Stanford, it was easy to see that the young receiver was extremely talented, unfortunately, for his wallet, and fortunately, for the Seattle Seahawks, Doug didn’t have the “measurables”.
He’s not extremely fast, he is extremely short, and although...

According to Rotoworld.com, Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee injury.
Rice is a heck of a player when he’s healthy, but it looks like it’s almost impossible for him to not get injured We’ll be monitoring his status throughout the week.
January 6, 2007. Romo mania was at an all-time high. After replacing Drew Bledsoe in the sixth game of the season, the undrafted quarterback out of Eastern Illinois led the Cowboys to a 9-7 record and a playoff wild card bid against the Seattle Seahawks.

(Eds: Adds details. With AP Photos.) Facing 80 yards and needing a touchdown with less than five minutes to play, Russell Wilson felt right at home.
Wilson's rigorous preparation and attention to detail that helped earn him the starting job for the Seattle Seahawks as a rookie left him completely ready to face the task that lay in front of him.
