4th of July Fireworks: Revisiting Longest Touchdowns in Seahawks History

Celebrating July 4 with a Seahawks spin, reporter Corbin Smith looks back at the longest touchdowns produced on offense, defense, and special teams in franchise history.

As people around the United States celebrate Independence Day on July 4, the NFL finds itself in the midst of a moratorium. With OTAs and minicamps wrapping up several weeks ago and training camp still weeks away, there's nothing football related going on in the darkest period of the offseason.

Celebrating the holiday in stride by reliving some of the franchise's greatest moments, here's a look at which current/former Seahawks produced the longest touchdowns in team history.
