Engram bounces back from illness, sets Seahawks' record
SEATTLE, Wash. - Six seahawks are headed to the Pro Bowl this year. Receiver Bobby Engram is not one of them, but for all he's been through it's hard not to call him a pretty deserving guy. This year he has a career-high 90 catches, which is also a new single-season Seahawks record. What's really impressive is that just a year ago he was struggling with a career-threatening thyroid condition that sapped his strength and forced him to the sidelines.
"He's come back," Hasselbeck said of his 34 year-old wideout. "He eats better, takes care of his body more, and he's had to work better probably. He's playing well. He's quick, fast, older, but doesn't look it. . Our relationships is very good. The trust factor is really high. He's got more opportunities. Hack has been hurt. Deion has been hurt. He's got more opportunities and he's taken advantage of it."
Seattle closes out the regular season Sunday at Atlanta and will then host a first round playoff game the following weekend. Seattle has been assured of the three seed in the NFC Playoffs.
