Seattle legend Sue Bird will raise the 12th man flag

One of the most centuries-old traditions in Seahawks history is the raising of the 12th Man Flag in the South Endzone before home games. This is usually a former player, local celebrity, or Seattle sports legend. In Week 1 against the Broncos, former Seahawks linebacker KJ Wright took the honors.

To kick off Week 3, the Seahawks are sticking with local sports legends with Sue Bird raising the flag.
