So ultimately, I obviously want to stay in Seattle. It's a great place, a place that I arrived on May 10, 2012. I'll never forget that day. I'll never forget April 27th, when I was drafted in the third round, 75th pick overall, they gave me an opportunity.

MS: You know the numbers well.

RW: I never forget certain dates.
