I agree! The word will get around the NFL that Seattle is a First Class organization and treats their players accordingly! "What goes around....comes around."

I also agree, very classy move.. It truly shows this organization cares about its family.
But just to play devils advocate.. I am also a huge Vancouver canucks fan..
and about 5 years ago the Organization started winning it's players over with all the little extras (bringing players family's on road trips, starting new charities in players names) also attracting New Free agents by (upgrades to Dressing Room, training facilities, travel , sleep doctors, dietitians, etc... and of course $$$$$ )
it all started out great.. about 2-3 seasons into this new team philosophy, the team was gelling quickly and FA wanted to be here, but over the past 2 years we have seen the decline of passion, urgency and heart.
Now the CORE players are more like pampered princess's, with No Drive, NO HUNGER, and most importantly they are To Safe !! Not Fighting to Keep a place in the line up.
I know this isn't hockey but I am seeing Striking/alarming similarities happening with the Seahawks..
