Jones' retirement official: The Memories
By Mike Sando
The Seahawks' have put together a video highlight package commemorating Walter Jones' career as part of his official retirement announcement.
Some of the best highlights are near the end, including one featuring Jones driving his man 10-plus yards down the field, then driving him into the turf at Qwest Field.
The Seahawks have produced another video with comments from former teammates Mack Strong, Steve Hutchinson, Robbie Tobeck and others. Strong recalls the play against Carolina shown on the video.
"It was a sight to behold," Strong said.
The team is retiring his No. 71 jersey. Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire will declare Friday as "Walter Jones Day" in the state.
