A Dozen Seattle Seahawks Players You May Not Remember

Filed under: Do You Remember — by Mark on January 4, 2015

Most fans know the top names, all time greats, and even the fan favorites who have played on their favorite team. There are players that we forget about, even ones with recognizable names, because they didn’t spend very much time with the team. Some players come to a team early in their career, some end their careers with a team, and some just briefly stop by on their way to another team. The Seahawks have some great fans and here is a look at a dozen players who played for them who you may not remember.

Gino Toretta

1992 saw Gino Toretta win the Heisman Trophy while playing quarterback for the University of Miami. He was drafted into the NFL by the Minnesota Vikings. He would spend time on the rosters of the 49ers and the Lions, as well as spend time playing in NFL Europe. 1996 saw him get his only NFL action ever when he came off the bench, threw a touchdown pass to Joey Galloway, and helped lead the Seattle Seahawks to a win over the Raiders. Two years later he retired from the NFL.

Peter Warrick was a two time consensus All-American receiver at Florida State University before being the 4th overall player taken in the 2000 NFL Draft by the Bengals.

After a final half year with the Eagles, his NFL career was over. Jeff Kemp is also known for being the son of former AFL quarterback and longtime U.S. Representative Jack Kemp.
