And to think the Houston Oilers didn't want him.
Big surprise here, for No 1. Largent is far and away the all-time leader among Seahawks receivers in every major category—games played (200), receptions (819), yards (13,089) and touchdowns (100).
He also led the team in receiving their first 12 years of play and once held the NFL record with at least one catch in 177 consecutive games.
One of his most memorable outings came in Seattle's 27-20 playoff win at Miami on New Year's Eve in 1983, when he caught two passes from Dave Krieg on back-to-back plays for a total of 56 yards.
Those were his only two catches of the game, but they set up Curt Warner's game-winning TD in the Seahawks' first-ever road postseason game, and propelled them to the AFC Championship Game.
Largent's best statistical campaign came in 1985, when he caught a career-high 79 passes for a league-leading 1,287 yards and scored six TDs. The previous season, he tallied a career-high 12 scores, and he recorded seven seasons with 1,000 or more receiving yards. He also had 17 career rushes for 83 yards and a TD and returned 16 kicks his first two seasons for 234 yards.
In seven career playoff games, the Tulsa product caught 23 passes for 434 yards and four scores. That included a seven-catch game at the Houston Astrodome in 1987, when he collected 132 yards and two TDs, all personal playoff bests, in a 23-20 OT loss to the Oilers.
An All-Pro and a seven-time Pro Bowler, Largent became the first true Seahawk to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995.
He then went on to a career in politics and served in Congress from 1995-2002.
