On this date: Walter Jones given franchise tag for third consecutive year

Walter Jones

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Feb. 24:

1994: Nate Odomes, a two-time Pro Bowl cornerback for the Bills, is signed in free agency. Knee injuries, however, would prevent Odomes from ever playing for the Seahawks.

1998: Kevin Glover, a three-time Pro Bowl center for the Lions, signs with the Seahawks in free agency. But injuries would limit him to 14 starts in two seasons with the Seahawks.

2004: Walter Jones is given the franchise tag for the third consecutive year. Despite reporting late, the left tackle would be voted to his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl.

2010: Olindo Mare is given the franchise tag, and the veteran kicker responds by hitting 25 of 30 field goal attempts – including extending his consecutive kick streak that began in 2009 to a franchise record 30 in a row.

2000: The Seahawks wrap up the AFC West title, despite losing 19-9 in their 1999 regular-season finale to the Jets in the Meadowlands, because the Raiders also beat the Chiefs. The Seahawks finish 9-7 after starting 8-2, but it’s still their best record since 1990. Also, Cortez Kennedy is voted to his then-club record eighth Pro Bowl.

2002: Walter Jones and John Randle are named to the Pro Bowl.

Matt Schaub throws a TD pass on the final play, but Warrick Dunn’s run for the tying PAT is stopped.

2011: The Seahawks capture the 2010 NFC West title with a 16-6 victory over the Rams in the regular-season finale in Seattle on Sunday night.
