The Guy Jerry Rice idolized…Steve Largent had arguably the best hands in NFL history he spent 14 years with the Seahawks, and, while not particularly fast, was extremely sure-handed. He was selected to the NFL Pro Bowl seven times, and was the first Seahawk to earn that honor. In 1987, Largent ended his participation in the NFLPA strike after the third and final week of the strike.
In 1989, Largent became the first Seahawks player to win the Steve Largent Award for his spirit, dedication, and integrity.
When Largent retired, he held all major NFL receiving records, including: most receptions in a career (819), most receiving yards in a career (13,089), and most touchdown receptions (100). He was also in possession of a then-record streak of 177 consecutive regular-season games with a reception. He also holds the distinction as the first receiver in NFL history to achieve 100 touchdown receptions in his career.
Largent was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995, his first year of eligibility. In 1999, he was ranked number 46 on The Sporting News list of the 100 Greatest Football Players, the only Seahawk to make the list.
His #80 was retired in 1992; Largent is the first Seahawk player to be so honored…and should be given a bit more credit when the best WR argument pops up…He definitely the ultimate over achiever!
In 1994, Oklahoma’s 1st District Congressman Jim Inhofe resigned to run in a special election to succeed Senator David Boren. Largent won the election to succeed Inhofe in Congress; pursuant to an Oklahoma statute, Governor David Walters designated the special election in which Largent was elected to serve the remainder of Inhofe’s term in the 103rd Congress,
