On this date: Mike Holmgren commits to Trent Dilfer, who then re-signs

Trent Dilfer

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on March 5:

1997: The team announces it is returning to Eastern Washington University for training camp. The Seahawks had summered in Cheney from 1976-85 before holding training camp at their Kirkland facility for 11 years.

2002: Trent Dilfer is re-signed, but only after coach Mike Holmgren commits to the veteran quarterback has his starter. That lasts only until midseason, when Dilfer ruptures an Achilles against the Cowboys in Dallas and Matt Hasselbeck steps back in as the starter.
