Seattle Seahawks are bringing back a player full of veteran departures.

K.J. Wright, who is one of the best linebackers in franchise history,

signed a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday

so he could retire as a member of the organization.

During his 10 years with Seattle, Jarran Wright totaled 941 tackles,

66 tackles for losses, and 13.5 sacks. He also made a Pro Bowl in 2016.

He is an important player on the field.

And outside of the game, he was also a charitable and philanthropic person.

When asked about his interest in returning to his first NFL team, the Seattle Seahawks,

Wright said that he was very much interested in signing with them.

He said that he wanted to come back, but Seattle wouldn't let him.

Michael Bennett is looking to celebrate the legacy of his friend and teammate, not prolong their career.
