Seahawks say goodbye to Alexander


This comes as no surprise to anyone who’s a football fan, but Seahawks general manager Tim Ruskell made the announcement yesterday that former MVP running back Shaun Alexander had been released.

“I started my NFL career in Seattle and hoped I could remain with the team through the rest of my days as a player,” Alexander said in a statement released after the announcement. “That said, things change.”

Though it was definitely time for our boy to move on after suffering two straight injury-laden seasons since setting a then-NFL record for touchdowns in 2005, I’m not alone when I say we’ll miss Shaun. He’s one of the NFL’s classiest players, has a great attitude on and off the field, and helped lead this team to the ill-fated Super Bowl XL in February 2006.

Bon voyage, Shaun. Thanks for the memories.
