A strong safety for the Seahawks for 7 seasons (1981-1987), Easley’s impact on how to play defense in the NFL was immense, earning AFC Defensive Rookie of the Year honors in 1981, and he was the AFC Defensive Player of the Year in 1983.

He was also a first-team All-Pro in the 1982 to 1985 seasons, a 5-time Pro Bowl selection (1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988), and was named to the NFL’s 1980s All-Decade team.

Easley was inducted into the Seahawks Ring of Honor in 2002, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017.

The Seahawks retired his #45 jersey on October 1, 2017.
