So by now you’ve probably heard that Jon Kitna, the 41-year-old ex-Seahawk who is now a math teacher and football coach at Tacoma’s Lincoln High School, signed with the Dallas Cowboys this week?
Well here’s a cool follow-up to that from the Dallas Morning News, which reports that Kitna will donate his game check from this week to his school. That’s far from a token gesture from Kitna. As a veteran with 15-years of experience, Kitna’s weekly pay, even on a veteran-minimum contract, works out roughly to a $53,000 game check for one week’s worth.
If Kitna somehow ends up getting into Sunday’s game against the Eagles, Dennis Quiad better be ready to shave his head for the upcoming Disney movie.
From today’s Herald, Tim Booth of the AP looks at the Seahawks’ efforts to try to fix their running game. Also, from Dave Boling of the News Tribune looks at some unheralded Seahawks who might be deserving of Pro Bowl recognition (the Pro Bowl roster is announced Friday).
Also, if you’ve been enjoying the holidays and missed it from earlier, signs point to Percy Harvin perhaps being shut down soon.
