Hawk Add Defensive Tackle Named "Tez"

by: Michael Steffes

Unfortunately, his last name is Doolittle and not Kennedy, Jr. As many of you know, my all-time favorite Seahawk is easily Cortez Kennedy. But for 2009, at least through training camp, maybe I can adopt Tez Doolittle.

Doolittle is a 5 year defensive tackle from Auburn. To quote NFL Draft Scout,

After receiving an extra year of eligibility due to injury, Doolittle made the most of it by becoming one of the most productive players at his position in the league. Undersized, but could make someone a nice 'sleeper' choice.
Now Doolittle has signed on to join the Hawks as an undrafted free agent. How does Doolittle describe his attitude in coming into Seattle this weekend in an attempt to make the team?
“I’m going to be like a blind dog in a meathouse,”
Hey, maybe he will be mini-Tez with that attitude. I don't know about you, but I prefer defensive tackles that like to eat raw meat.

In all seriousness, Doolittle was known as leader on the Auburn defense. He registered 28 tackles, 8 of which were for loss, while playing next to third round pick Sen'Derrick Marks. END
