Seahawks announce 2022 offensive, defensive and special teams captains – Seahawks Wire

One week ahead of the home opener against Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos, the Seattle Seahawks have announced their team captains for the 2022 season.
The roster voted to elect the following four players: wide receiver Tyler Lockett as offensive captain, safety Quandre Diggs and defensive tackle Al Woods as defensive captains, and linebacker/fullback Nick Bellore to rep the special teams.
With Wilson having earned the honor the last nine seasons, this marks Lockett’s first go as a team captain.
“A beautiful recognition for a guy that’s always been a leader in this program and always been at the front of it,” coach Pete Carroll said. “He’s got the wisdom, and they recognize it and they really listen to him.”
On the defensive side of the ball, Carroll is equally impressed with the named leaders.
“Quandre Diggs is a guy that’s been a leader in this program, been part of it – big voice, big character, terrific football player that guys really look up to,” Carroll noted. “And speaking of looking up to in a big way, Al Woods up front really just brings all the voice and the stature and the work habits and the ethic that you want to lead.”
Finally, Carroll said special teams captain Bellore was “just an obvious pick.” “He’s just everything to everybody,” Carroll continued. “Playmaking, play style, mentality, all of that.”
