2: WR Steve Largent (1976 – 1989) 

Until Jerry Rice came along, Largent laid claim to the title of Most Prolific Wide Receiver in NFL History. When he retired in 1989 he held most of the all-time league records, including…..

  • Most yardage: 13,089
  • Most receptions: 819
  • Most TD’s: 100
  • Longest streak of consecutive games with a reception: 177

Largent was never the biggest (5’11” 187 lbs) or the fastest, but he was known for having quick feet, running great routes, and having great hands. He was definitely a throwback, never wearing gloves no matter how cold it was. And remarkably, it didn’t matter who was throwing him the ball, he split roughly half his career between Jim Zorn and Dave Krieg.

He was voted to 7 Pro Bowls, 1 All-Pro team, and was the first Seahawk player inducted into the NFL Hall Of Fame in 1995. In 1989 he was the first Ring Of Honor member, and in 1992 he became the first Seahawk player to have his number retired. He went on to have a successful career in politics and business and is still one of the ex-Seahawks you are most likely to see back in town or at an alumni function. His close friendship with his old QB, Jim Zorn, remains to this day.
