Friday Round-Up: Seahawks Legend K.J. Wright Discusses Retirement Decision On Good Morning Football – Seahawks.com

Good afternoon, 12s. Here’s a look at what’s out there today – Friday, August 5 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
K.J. Wright Joins Good Morning Football To Talk About His Retirement
Last week, the Seahawks signed Seahawks legend K.J. Wright to a one-day contract, allowing the linebacker to retire with the team it all started with in 2011. After an emotional moment that he celebrated with the Seahawks and his family, Wright sat down with Good Morning Football to discuss how the moment came about.
In the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Wright with the No.99 selection out of Mississippi State. Over the course of the next decade, Wright would help the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII, earn a Pro Bowl and record over 900 tackles for Seattle. After a season with the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021, Wright ultimately decided to retire where he started.
“For me it came down to my family, I knew that the way that this free agency journey would go, that teams would wait until training camp or into the season to sign me,” said Wright. “And I did that last year, last year I went to Vegas, and they signed me Week 1 of the season. I had no time to get my family situated and bring them out there with me. So I was out there by myself in Vegas, that was not fun at all so I knew that I would not do that again.”
After initially inquiring about another season with the Seahawks, Wright made the decision to hang up his cleats.
“If it’s not with you guys, I’m not playing football by myself again, so I’m just gonna retire, and retire as a Seahawk.”
Wright brought both of his parents to celebrate his final moment as a Seahawk, taking time to tell them both what they and the moment meant to him.
