A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on April 9:
2001: Levon Kirkland, a Pro Bowl linebacker from the Steelers, is signed in free agency. He finished third on the team with 101 tackles in his only season with the Seahawks. Kirkland was one of eight players to start at middle linebacker for the Seahawks during a seven-season stretch – joining Dean Wells and DeShone Myles (1998), Anthony Simmons (1999), George Koonce (2000), Isaiah Kacyvenski (2002), Randall Godfrey (2004) and Orlando Huff (2004) – before Lofa Tatupu was drafted in 2005.
