Seahawks to induct Walter Jones into the team’s Ring of Honor Sunday

Former Seahawk Walter Jones is in the NFL Hall of Fame and has had his number retired by the Seahawks.

Now he gets another honor, as the Seahawks announced Thursday he will be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor on Sunday when Seattle hosts the Raiders at 1:25 p.m.

A press release states that the  “ceremony will include the unveiling of Jones’ name on the suite level fascia inside the stadium.”

Here’s more from the press release on the induction of Jones:

Members of the Ring of Honor are selected by Seahawks executives based on their contributions to the success and history of the franchise on and off the field. Each member of the Ring of Honor has helped shape the organization into one of the premiere teams in the NFL. The Ring of Honor members are prominently featured at VMAC and CenturyLink Field.

Jones will become the 11th member of the distinguished group, joining Steve Largent, Jim Zorn, Dave Brown, Pete Gross, Curt Warner, Jacob Green, Kenny Easley, Dave Krieg, Chuck Knox and Cortez Kennedy.

The team will also recognize Seahawks alumni as part of Homecoming Weekend designed to help former NFL players connect with each other, their former teams and the NFL. More than 35 alumni will participate in activities throughout the weekend including a tour and lunch at VMAC and pregame ceremonies on gameday.
