The NFL will induct former Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy into the NFL Hall Of Fame on Saturday evening, honoring Kennedy's 11-year career. Kennedy played for the Seahawks from 1990 to 2000 after the Seahawks drafted him with the third overall pick in the first-round of the 1990 NFL Draft out of the University of Miami.
Kennedy contributed right away for Seattle and took over as a starter in the lineup in 1991, his second season in the NFL. He was a consistent force for the Seahawks on the defensive line, playing in 167 out of 176 possible games in his career, including a streak of 116 straight games.
Kennedy was voted to the Pro-Bowl eight times in his career and named to the NFL's All-Pro team five times. Kennedy was named as the NFL's Defensive Player of the year in 1992, notching a 14 sack season, despite the fact that the Seahawks were just 2-14 on the season.
