Seattle Seahawks Make Major Announcement That Will Have Football Fans Smiling

David Hookstead | Reporter

The Seattle Seahawks will start rookie Shaquem Griffin at linebacker Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

For those of you who don’t know, Griffin exploded onto the national scene at UCF because he dominated and only has one hand. He tore it up for the Knights as he captured the attention of football fans everywhere. (RELATED: MATTHEW STAFFORD’S 2017 HIGHLIGHTS ARE PRETTY MUCH STRAIGHT UP FOOTBALL PORN)

This is a great example of putting in whatever work is necessary to play at the next level. Think about how many doubters and critics Griffin must have had over the years playing football with only one hand. He received minimal recruiting interest out of high school, and now he’s a starting linebacker in the NFL. It really doesn’t get much better than that.

I can’t wait to see how he does Sunday. I have a pretty solid feeling that he’s going to do pretty damn well.
