Cortez Kennedy To Be Inducted Into Ring Of Honor

From Mike Kahn at Seahawks.com:

There is no truth to the rumor that the tremors felt during the delirium of the Seattle Seahawks NFC Championship win over the Carolina Panthers in January was the result of Cortez Kennedy jumping up and down with excitement.

Sure, he’s heavier than the 306 pounds he was listed as weighing during his 11 seasons with the Seahawks. But that’s not to underestimate how excited he was at the game, despite having retired in 2000.

He’s always been part of the Seahawks family, and Friday it was announced he will become an even more prominent member when he becomes the 10th member of the Seahawks Ring of Honor, with his No. 96 retired and emblazoned with the others at Qwest Field.

“Sixteen years later, to become a member, I don't know what to say," Kennedy said. "I love the Seahawks. And we're going back to Miami for the Super Bowl."
