Video: Walter Jones talks about being inducted into Seahawks Ring of Honor

One of the highlights of Sunday’s game comes at halftime when former Seahawk Walter Jones will be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor.

Jones has already had his jersey retired and been elected into the NFL Hall of Fame.

But Jones said Friday this award carries a special significance of assuring that his name will be visible to all in the stadium for as long as it exists. It also means he will  now have his picture on one of the large banners in a hallway at the VMAC that honors each of the Ring of Honor members.

“To get my name officially in the stadium, to be here forever is amazing,” Jones said.

Current players and coaches walk through the hallway regularly and Jones noted they’ll now look up and see his name and picture along with each of the others.

“For the couple years I walked through here to now these guys are going to walk through and any new guy coming in is always going to want to know who those guys are,” Jones said. “So now to look up and see my name up there and my picture up there, you’re going to know ‘hey that’s Walter Jones’ and you are maybe going to have to go Google him or something, some of the younger guys,” he said. “But for me it’s amazing that I have put some great stats out there for them to have to go back and see the things I did on the football field.”
