Fredd Young is one of two players in Seahawks history who went to the Pro Bowl each season he was with the team. The other is linebacker Julian Peterson.

Young made it 4 for 4 from 1984-87 by going as a special teams player his first two seasons and then as a linebacker his final two seasons. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts for a pair of first-round draft choice in 1988.

It’s fitting that Young went twice as a linebacker because when asked once why he had a second “D” in his first name, he offered through a smile, “It stands for defense.”

Peterson went three times in three seasons, all as a linebacker.

Here are the Top 10 players in franchise history in Pro Bowls-to-seasons played:
