    Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck scrambles during the Seahawks' playoff game against Washington during the 2006 playoffs.

In the eight years since the 2006 Super Bowl, the players on that special Seattle Seahawks team have spread out to all corners of the country and to an assortment of post-football careers, though five were still on NFL rosters at the end of the 2013 season.
The five still-active former Seahawks include quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, Seattle's starter in 2005, who is now a backup for the Indianapolis Colts; Seneca Wallace, Hasselbeck's 2005 backup, who is a reserve QB for the Green Bay Packers; offensive lineman Sean Locklear, a backup with the Atlanta Falcons; offensive lineman Chris Spencer (the only player on Seattle's Super Bowl roster not to play in the game), a backup with the Tennessee Titans; and place-kicker Josh Brown, who kicked this past season for the New York Giants.
Otherwise, the members of Seattle's last Super Bowl team have all finished their playing careers, including three who actually played their final NFL games in the Super Bowl — punter Tom Rouen, wide receiver and kick returner Peter Warrick and linebacker Cornelius Wortham.
Four more players put in one more NFL season, seven retired in 2007, and another eight retired a year later, including running back Shaun Alexander, the NFL's Most Valuable Player in 2005.
Others left football in each ensuing season, and they all began moving into varied and, in some cases, surprising careers. One of the most surprising was linebacker Kevin Bentley, who became a certified snowboard instructor.
Some have gone into coaching, such as safety Marquand Manuel, who is still with the Seahawks as a defensive assistant. Another is wide receiver Bobby Engram, who now coaches the wide receivers at the University of Pittsburgh. And cornerback Andre Dyson is the new head football coach at Clearfield High School in Clearfield, Utah, just north of Salt Lake City.
Others have found ways to make an impact in their communities outside of football. Safety Michael Boulware is the administrative pastor at Generation Church in Columbia, S.C. Cornerback Marcus Trufant is the founder and president of the Trufant Family Foundation in the Puget Sound area. And Alexander also has a charitable foundation, and likewise keeps busy with speaking engagements.
Defensive lineman Craig Terrill and fullback Mack Strong have joined the media and are radio commentators (Strong also does TV) in the Seattle area. Wide receiver Joe Jurevicius does media work in Cleveland, where he owns a business.
Among those who still reside in the Seattle area is offensive tackle Walter Jones (he also has a home in Alabama), who will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame with the Class of 2014. Jones continues to make periodic appearances on behalf of the Seahawks.
Center Robbie Tobeck has settled in the Seattle area, too, and is working in the insurance business. Offensive guard Steve Hutchinson lives in Minnesota, where he enjoys hunting and fishing, and where he has also started a new career as a sports agent.
Others followed their football careers with scholarly pursuits. Linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski went back to Harvard University, his undergraduate alma mater, to earn an MBA and is now an entrepreneur and businessman in the Boston area. Defensive lineman Bryce Fisher also received an MBA and works today in the financial services industry outside of Chicago. And long snapper J.P. Darche is in medical school at the University of Kansas.
