Much like Curtis Martin, Seahawks defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy isn’t too upset over not making the Hall of Fame.
“How can I sit here and tell you I got ‘snubbed,’ or anything like that?” Kennedy told Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com. “I’m not upset at all. If nothing else, I got a couple nice articles written about me last week.”
Look for Kennedy to have even more articles written about him next year. He noted that just making it to the last ten finalists for the second straight year was a great honor.
“I’m just honored, and I’m still dancing with it. The whole thing just put a smile on my face.”
Without a great first-ballot class on the books for next year, we’d be surprised if Kennedy isn’t part of the Hall of Fame class of 2012.
