A fan favorite in Seattle.
A Seattle Seahawks fan favorite.
A Seahawks fan.
A fan favorite with Seattle’s most devoted.
And then there’s this: It’s the perfect time to get rid of that nickname.
After years of being overshadowed by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, the team announced Friday that Wilson will be named its starting quarterback for the upcoming season.
It’s the first time the team has used a player’s full name on a player it has named the starting quarterback since 2012, when Russell Wilson was the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft.
Wilson’s name has become a source of frustration in Seattle and the NFL.
He has been criticized for his off-field behavior and his questionable decisions.
He is also under fire for his alleged sexual assault of a woman.
A day earlier, the Seahawks unveiled the name change plan for the 2018 season, and it includes a change in the team’s jersey numbers from the “S” to the “T” for the team to be more uniform with the rest of the NFL, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
The NFL is currently under a court order to name the league’s 30 teams, including the NFL’s 25 franchises.
The league can change the name of a team if the name does not reflect the team.
The NFL is also required to give the league 30 days’ notice before changing the team name.
The name change was one of many announced during the Seahawks preseason camp.
The team unveiled a pair of new uniforms for the 2019 season.
The new uniforms will be worn during the season, with players on the team wearing alternate jerseys.
The “Sons of Anarchy” star also wore a different jersey during training camp, and Wilson made a few more comments during the week.
