Cortez Kennedy Not Bashful About His Excitement On Hall of Fame Enshrinement

In case you missed it, former Seahawks legend Cortez Kennedy was named to the 2012 class for enshrinement into the NFL Hall of Fame after missing out the last three years.

On KJR's Mitch in the Morning show recently, Kennedy talked about how excited he was to be bestowed the honor...

"The last three years I didn't think I'd have a chance, but last year, I was like, ‘Well, I might have a chance.' ... I started getting nervous. Then, if [not getting in] was the the worst thing I'd have to deal with, I'd be OK, but I did want to get in because you look at the guys I played with - John Randle, Randall McDaniel, Bruce Matthews - all those guys I played with in the Pro Bowl, I said, hopefully one day I get that chance. When I saw it on TV Saturday that I'd be an enshrinee, I was like, ‘Oh my goodness.'

"I'm very happy for the Seahawks fans. That decade that we lost, probably under .500 ... the Seahawks fans had to endure so much and I'm so proud of them and the Seahawks organization that we have a second person in the Hall of Fame."
