Biegel can’t wait to officially start the offseason program.
That’s why I’m so excited about this upcoming season — to really get the bad taste out of my mouth from 2017 and really put a good stamp on the 2018 season and put together a season I know I can be proud of, Biegel said. It’s been an awesome offseason, and I’m excited to get started.
I knew we had a Breast Cancer Awareness game coming up, and I have a few family members that have been affected by breast cancer, Galloway told ESPN. I had to do something special for them, but I wanted to find something different that I haven’t seen. I went on eBay trying to find some rare samples and ran across the AZG ‘Gloria.’ I knew they were something special!
Other players kept things light with custom hand-painted pairs. L.A.-based artist Sal Amezcua, aka Kickstradomis, saw his work on the feet of more than 20 players, including Harrell and Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns.
Jefferson was a fifth-round pick by the Seahawks in 2016, but was an exclusive rights free agent because the Seahawks cut him last September. He returned to Seattle after a brief stint with the Rams and posted seven tackles and a sack in six games.
His most memorable appearance came in Week 14 in Jacksonville. Jefferson was ejected from the game after the Jaguars took issue with the Seahawks’ aggression during kneeldowns at the end of the game and then had to be restrained from going into the stands after fans threw drinks at him. Jefferson was fined for his on-field infraction and the Jaguars banned two fans from the stadium after they were found to have been throwing items on the field.
It’s remarkable that he’s been the player he’s been, dealing with that off and on, Boone said. And it’s part of the reason that our evaluation of him when we were set to acquire him — the upside that we see in this guy — is because the skill set is really impressive.
And maybe this explains why he hasn’t been an even better player to this point in his career. Hopefully we’re getting those answers that we’re getting rid of this as an issue and it really allows him to take off as a player.
