We aren’t the only ones that don’t know if Walter Jones was joking about retirement or not Sunday.
According to the Associated Press, the Seahawks have traded messages with Jones this week, but have been unable to “reconfirm” his plans for 2010. Publicly, Jones has said he’ll try to play again. He’s hinted at retirement on Twitter.
Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates spoke with the Seattle media for the first time Tuesday and said he “won’t get involved with what route we’re going” at left tackle. Matt Hasselbeck is following Jones like the rest of us.
“Walt’s on Twitter,” Hasselbeck said on KJR 950 Tuesday. “I’m going to stay on Twitter just so I can stay in the know and see what Walt’s up to.”
Hasselbeck has no idea what the left tackle is going to do.
“Knowing Walt, who knows,” Hasselbeck said. “It could be true, it might not be true . . . I have no idea.”
