SEATTLE — How about, “the team that plays together, stays together?”
Well, that doesn’t really work because “play” could infer simply playing on the field. Maybe, “the team that swims in Hawaii together goes to their third straight Super Bowl together.”
Yes. We like that.
Though the Seahawks official offseason program doesn’t get going until April 20, multiple Seahawks players are on a team-bonding trip to the Hawaiian Islands. There, the players are working out with Seattle coaches, staff and personnel, as well as participating in team-building exercises and some much-needed R and R.
The team has chilled together during luaus, and on Wednesday went swimming together in the crystal-clear Pacific Ocean.
Team members Kam Chancellor, Bobby Wagner and others couldn’t resist showing off their cool underwater pics. Which makes us jealous, but also ecstatic that the team is having so much fun.
The trip is largely spearheaded by quarterback Russell Wilson, Seahawks.com reports, who is leading seven-on-seven workouts in between weight room sessions in Hawaii.
“The goal and focus is to be completely invested,” Wilson told Seahawks.com “Invested in growing as players. Invested in growing as teammates. Invested in growing as men. completely invested in our mission.”
