Walter Jones was born January 19, 1974 and is a former offensive tackle who played in the National Football League for thirteen seasons. Born in Alabama, he played college football at Florida State University. Jones played his entire professional career with the Seattle Seahawks, where he was a seven-time All-Pro selection and eventual NFL 2000s All-Decade Team honoree. Starting in each of his 180 games in Seattle, the Seahawks attempted more than 5,500 passes with Jones on the field, while Jones gave up a total of only 23 quarterback sacks, and was penalized for holding just nine times. By acclamation, Jones is widely considered one of the best offensive linemen of all time.
Jones was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and seven-time All-Pro. Jones was perhaps the best at his position in the NFL during the early part of the decade, exemplified by being voted to the NFL's 2000s All Decade Team. He paved the way for Shaun Alexander's NFL record-setting success. From 1998 through 2000, he also helped Ricky Watters achieve three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons for the Seahawks.
Walter Jones was recognized by John Madden as the best player in the NFL in 2004 in a broadcast. Madden recognized Jones in numerous broadcasts as the best left tackle in the NFL and possibly one of the best of all time.
Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren called Jones the best offensive player he had ever coached. Holmgren had previously coached superstars including Joe Montana, Steve Young and Brett Favre.
On Thanksgiving 2008, Walter Jones succumbed to a knee injury playing against the Cowboys in his 180th and final game. The injury required microfracture surgery to repair and immediately ended his season. Jones tried to play again in 2009, but was unsuccessful. On October 28, 2009, Jones was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks. In a press conference the same day, Jones stated his intention to play in 2010. On April 29, 2010, Jones announced on his Twitter account that he would retire.
The Seahawks announced the retirement of his number, 71, and governor Christine Gregoire declared April 30 to be "Walter Jones Day" in the state of Washington.
On December 5, 2010, in a game versus the Carolina Panthers, in front of a crowd of over 66,000, the Seahawks honored the career of Jones by retiring his #71 jersey. His is only the third player number (#80 Steve Largent and #96 Cortez Kennedy) to be retired by the Seahawks (they have also retired #12 in honor of the fans).
On January 8, 2011, Jones lifted the 12th Man flag at Qwest Field before the Seahawks' wild card matchup against the New Orleans Saints. The 7-9 Seahawks went on to defeat the defending Super Bowl champion Saints 41-36.
