Seattle Seahawks legend Cortez Kennedy was found dead in his Orlando home police announced Tuesday at age 48. Kennedy was a Seahawks defensive superstar that was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2012, played for the team from 1990 – 2000, and was voted to the Pro Bowl 8 times. Orlando police say that his death is under investigation but say “there is nothing suspicious to report” according to news reports.

Cortez was one the players I remember most from my childhood and easily one of the best players to ever play for the Seahawks. Cortez had recently been working as a consultant to the Saints because of his relationship with the General Manager that used to work for the Seahawks. A few more high points of his life, ESPN voted Cortez the best athlete to ever wear #96 in 2017 and he was added to the Seahawks Ring of Honor in 2006.

Police say that Cortez Kennedy died alone at his home, but today his entire Seahawks family is with him in spirit.
