Seattle Seahawks: 30 greatest players in franchise history
When it comes to pass rushers, there weren’t many better to ever wear a Seahawks uniform than Michael Sinclair. Although his legacy gets overlooked a bit because of Jacob Green, you can’t ignore the impressive production and impact Sinclair brought to the table.
All but one of his 11 NFL campaigns were spent with the Seahawks. During those 10 years, he tallied 73.5 sacks, good enough for second all-time among Seattle defenders. Put simply, his ability to get after opposing passers was uncanny. It makes it even better when you consider the Seahawks only had to spend a sixth-round pick to get Sinclair.
Among his 10 seasons in Seattle, three resulted in Pro Bowl appearances. The best one though, came in 1998 when he amassed 16.5 quarterback takedowns. That number still stands as the best in a single season in franchise history, even besting Green’s 16 sacks in 1983.
The Seahawks had a lot of down years during the 1990s. While there were few positives during that time, you can certainly mark Sinclair as one of the highlights of those Seattle defenses.
