Shawn Springs

A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on March 28:

1997: The club trades a first-round pick obtained from the Bears for QB and former first-round pick Rick Mirer to the Falcons to move up to the third spot in the NFL Draft, so it can select Shawn Springs. The Ohio State cornerback would start 88 games in seven seasons, lead the team in interceptions twice, be voted to the Pro Bowl in 1998 and was selected to the franchise’s 35th Anniversary team.
