Posted by Clare Farnsworth on February 16, 2012 – 10:10 am

A look at the memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Feb. 16:

1997: After getting a come-check-this-out phone call from just-signed free agent and former Steelers teammate Chad Brown, Willie Williams also signs with the Seahawks and starts 75 games at cornerback over the next seven seasons.

2005: After being named the franchise player for three consecutive years, Walter Jones signs a multi-year contract that makes him a Seahawks for the remainder of his 13-season career.

2006: Linebackers coach John Marshall is elevated to defensive coordinator on Mike Holmgren’s staff as health issues force Ray Rhodes to take a position as a special projects/defense assistant.
