The last 24 hours have come as a bittersweet moment for Seahawks fans. Pro Bowl fullback Mack Strong announced his retirement from the game of football.
After playing in five games of his 14th season in the league, a herniated disk in his vertebrae has forced him to leave the game he loves. He finished with the second most games played in Seahawks’ team history, behind only defensive lineman Joe Nash. Mack’s best year as a lead blocker and receiver came in 2006, when he caught 29 balls and was named one of the representatives to head to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.
Enjoy this little tribute to the bruiser.
