Sad news for Seahawks fans. Former Seahawks punter Rick ‘Bootin’ Tuten has passed away at age 52. Tuten was with the Seahawks for seven years from 1991 through 1997. Tuten had a 45.0 yard-per-punt average in 1995, and twice led the league in total punting yards. He went to the Pro-Bowl honors 1994, and in his final year playing in the NFL he earned a Superbowl ring with the Rams.

Tuten died unexpectedly in Costa Rica over last weekend, and full details have not yet been released. He is survived by his wife, Jennifer, son Chase and daughters Kinley and Ryan.
