Also eligible for enshrinement are WR Marvin Harrison, WR Tim Brown, WR Andre Reed, RB Jerome Bettis, coach Tony Dungy, K Morten Andersen, LB Derrick Brooks, owner Eddie DeBartolo, LB Kevin Greene, DE Charles Haley, S John Lynch, OG Will Shields, DE Michael Strahan and CB Aeneas Williams.

Seahawks LT Walter Jones announced his retirement from football.

A nine-time Pro Bowler, Jones is in the discussion for best offensive tackle in NFL history -- possibly slotting behind Anthony Munoz at No. 2. Standing alongside Steve Largent as the best player in franchise history, Jones was a phenomenal athlete who reportedly allowed just 23 sacks in his entire 12-year career. Mike Holmgren, who had Joe Montana with the 49ers and Brett Favre with the Packers, calls Jones the best offensive player he's ever coached. He's a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

The Seahawks will make a formal announcement regarding longtime LT Walter Jones next Thursday.

He's fully expected to retire. The Seahawks made it clear that they've moved on from Jones by using the sixth overall pick on Russell Okung Thursday night, when C.J. Spiller was still on the board. If the season began today, Seattle's already much-improved line would look like this: LT Okung, LG Ben Hamilton, C Chris Spencer, RG Max Unger, and RT Sean Locklear.

Walter Jones, who continues to mull retirement, is not expected to show for the Seahawks' upcoming voluntary minicamp.

The big surprise would've been if Jones did show for the three-day round of workouts. The Seahawks are "operating under the assumption" that Jones is done with football, which is the way to approach a 36-year-old who didn't play at all last year because of career-threatening knee and back problems.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he's still awaiting "final word" on LT Walter Jones' retirement plans.

"Walter is kind of setting his ducks in a row here to come to a conclusion," said Carroll. Jones has continued to rehab, and Carroll expects to see him next week. The Seahawks remain open to a return if Jones decides he's ready to attempt a comeback.

Several advisers to Walter Jones told ESPN's Len Pasquarelli that the future Hall of Fame tackle is indeed expected to retire.

Jones announced his retirement on Twitter, but given Jones' history that's far from a sure thing. We still don't have confirmation from the Seahawks, but it sounds like Jones is serious.

The Seahawks are still unsure of LT Walter Jones' plans for 2010.

Jones announced "it is time for me to retire from football" on Twitter Sunday, but he's publicly stated that he wants to keep playing if possible. While he's supposedly exchanged communication with the front office this week, the team has yet to "reconfirm" Jones' plans.

Seahawks LT Walter Jones announced on Twitter Sunday that he is retiring from football.

It's worth noting that Jones is known as something of a jokester, so we're not sure he's being for real. Still, a slew of knee and back issues have caught up to Jones, who turned 36 last month and was unable to play last season. A nine-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro first-teamer, Jones started every single game he appeared in during his 13-year career. He was perhaps the best left tackle (Orlando Pace was right there too) during the early- to mid-2000s, protecting Matt Hasselbeck's blind side and blocking for Shaun Alexander. Jones will make the Hall of Fame.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed that LT Walter Jones is "doing everything he can" to recuperate from his knee surgeries.

Jones, who has missed the Seahawks' last 20 games, still wants to play if his knee allows it. Due $7.3M in 2010, Jones has indicated that the team will determine whether or not he comes back. He expects a final decision "as early as this month."

Seahawks LT Walter Jones (knee surgeries) reiterated Monday that he wants to continue his playing career.

Jones says his rehab is "going pretty good" and called getting back for 2010 "the goal." Due $7.3 million in 2010, Jones is unlikely to get that chance with the Seahawks barring a massive pay cut. Jones turns 36 later this month.

Seahawks LT Walter Jones (injured reserve, knee surgeries) says he wants to keep playing football.

We'll see how he feels after more surgery, which coach Jim Mora says very well may be in the offing for Jones. "My next step is to keep working and try to get back," Jones said. "I still want to play this game. I still have the love." Most likely, the soon-to-be 36-year-old played his NFL last snap in 2008.

Seahawks placed LT Walter Jones (knee surgeries) on injured reserve, ending his season.

"We just need to shut him down and reevaluate," coach Jim Mora said. "It is too early for a career eulogy." Jones is signed through 2012, but holds a $10+ million cap charge for 2010 and will certainly consider retirement. 36 in January, Jones ends this season having not played a down. GM Tim Ruskell prefers wide receivers and linebackers, but the silver lining is that he'll finally be forced to make Seattle's offensive line an offseason priority.
Wed, Oct 28, 2009 01:23:00 PM

Seahawks coach Jim Mora confirmed that LT Walter Jones (knee surgeries) will not play in Week 8.

"There is a point where you just have to say, ‘Is it going to happen, or isn’t it?’" Mora said, hinting Jones is close to going on I.R. "We’re not there yet, but certainly we’re closer." OT Sean Locklear (ankle) is also unlikely to play. Expect Dallas' blitzes to give Matt Hasselbeck lots of trouble on Sunday.
Wed, Oct 28, 2009 12:47:00 PM

Seahawks coach Jim Mora acknowledged Monday that LT Walter Jones' (knee) status for Week 8 is uncertain.

The Week 7 bye didn't increase the team's confidence in Jones' health, unsurprisingly. "We'll see as we go along," Mora said. "Still iffy. We'll see where he is Wednesday." Jones, 35, remains no sure bet to play in 2009.
