Seahawks players created a fund for education and leadership programs.

WR Doug Baldwin has been one of the most active players advocating for tangible ways to make a positive impact on society, and now Baldwin and his teammates are launching a program to bring funding to nonprofit organizations. "We've been trying to make a unified demonstration, a unified message, and now this is a unified action we can all take," Baldwin said.

The team released a statement to announce the new initiative.

Julian Edelman shared this highlight of an insane interception in a high school game.

"I don't know that I've ever played against a team that I'm older than the coach," Witten said. "In the preseason game [against the Rams] I saw Andrew Whitworth who I've known over the years, a left tackle, we're similar in age, and I made a comment, 'How is it being older than your coach?' He said he owns it. That's a great personality to have. Whit is one of the better left tackles in football. You know, age is just a number. It's all about production and play."
