Kennedy was enshrined in Canton, Ohio earlier this month. He is also part of the Seahawks' Ring of Honor and his number will join three others in the rafters at CenturyLink Field -- No. 80 for Hall-of-Famer Steve Largent, No. 12 for the fans/12th Man and No. 71 for many-time Pro Bowler Walter Jones, who is bound for the Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible.

Kennedy spent 11 seasons (1990-2000) in the NFL, all with the Seahawks, and went to eight Pro Bowls. He was also the 1992 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
