The NFL offseason is in full swing, so just what have Seahawks players been up to lately?
Richard Sherman: Unless you live on an abandoned island with no access to social media or television, you’ve seen the many places he’s been, the people he has been seen with, and the events he has attended. From Stanford games with Andrew Luck, to hanging with LeBron and Johnny Manziel, to appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, you don’t need to be told what one of the most well-known athletes of today is doing, as it tends to make news on its own. As for the ankle injury he suffered in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl, it seems all but healed and it will not hold him back whatsoever once training camp rolls around.
Russell Wilson: One look on his Instagram account and you will notice that he has not let up on his usual visits to the Seattle Children’s Hospital. Wilson has continued to gain popularity and fans whether they are Seahawks fans or not due to his likeability. This has put him on the David Letterman Show along with Fox and Friends; he was also seen on the set of the Entourage movie so we will hopefully be seeing a cameo of our quarterback on the big screen soon.
Marshawn Lynch: Though not a big player in the media scene voluntarily, Beast Mode generates enough attention without saying a word. Since the Super Bowl, Lynch plead guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving for his DUI incident back in July of 2012. The plea is officially called a “wet reckless” and he will have to take six months of driving safety classes and pay a $1,080 fine, no action from the league has been taken thus far. Lynch has managed to stay out of the spotlight since then, but his latest Twitter post shows a giant, red jersey with a large 24 on the back written in Skittles so I’m guessing his endorsement with the company is going well.
Kam Chancellor: It has been reported that Bam-Bam will need minor surgery on his hip to clean up a problem from last year. The procedure is not as severe as the one that kept Percy Harvin sidelined all last season. There is not a set date yet for the surgery.
Earl Thomas: Earl had the opportunity to meet Michael Jordan on Feb. 15.
Pete Carroll, Bobby Wagner, Jermaine Kearse, Derrick Coleman and Russell Wilson: These five, along with other celebrities, participated in “We Day.” On March 21, the coach and players helped out with an educational event or movement to help young people lead local and global change.
