One of the best left tackles to play the game, Walter Jones announced his retirement in late April, ending a 13-year career that included nine Pro Bowl appearances and four All-Pro selections. The Seahawks said they would immediately retire his No. 71 jersey, making him only the third player to receive that honor. Former Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren has called Jones the best offensive player he ever coached, and Holmgren has coached Brett Favre, Joe Montana, Steve Young and Jerry Rice.
