Chris Gray Retires

A spine injury has forced Chris Gray into retirement.

A finesse pass blocker, Gray never received his due. Something about doing your job, keeping the franchise healthy and blocking for a string of top passing offenses just doesn't translate to the highlight reels. But that's what he did for 15 seasons, 11 with Seattle. A hell of a guard and a true Hawk, I wish him the very best health and happiness for the rest of his life. It might not feel like it right now Mr. Gray, but the best part of your life is just beginning.

For the team, losing Gray is another hit to an offensive line already without depth. Last season, Gray wasn't good, by the end of the season he was outright awful, but he was tenable. I'm not sure Seattle has another second string guard we can say that about. Or tackle. Or center.
