    RENTON Russell Wilson Color Rush Jersey , Wash. (AP) — Seahawks, has died at age 85.Patera died on Wednesday, the team said. The cause of death was not clear, but Patera had been battling pancreatic cancer.“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Jack Patera and extend our utmost sympathies and condolences to the Patera family,” read a statement from the Seahawks.“We will remember coach Patera most for his big heart, sense of humor and genuine spirit.”Patera was Seattle’s head coach for parts of seven seasons, beginning with the team’s inaugural season in 1976. Patera’s best seasons came in 1978-79 when the Seahawks went 9-7 in consecutive years Brandon Marshall Color Rush Jersey , but failed to make the playoffs. Patera was named the NFL coach of the year in 1978 when the Seahawks missed the playoffs by one game.Seattle never reached the postseason until 1983. Patera was fired after starting the 1982 season 0-2 and finished his career as a head coach with a 35-59 record.Before joining the Seahawks, Patera was an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings. Patera also had a seven-year playing career with the Baltimore Colts, Chicago Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys between 1955-61.Former Seahawks quarterback Jim Zorn tweeted that his favorite memories of Patera included the fact the head coach liked to be called Jack, and the Seahawks always had a fake field goal in the game plan.“If you called him ‘coach,’ he would call you ‘player.'” Zorn wrote.Current Seattle coach Pete Carroll said when former players from the early days of the Seahawks returned for alumni events Patera’s impact was obvious.“He was a great coach, great human,” Carroll said. The guys who played for him really loved playing for him. … He was really important to all those guys and a lot of people. We’ll miss him.” With news that Rashaad Penny could miss this week’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs Cortez Kennedy Color Rush Jersey , the Seattle Seahawks have signed running back Bo Scarbrough off of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ practice squad.We’ll have more on Scarbrough later this week from Roll Bama Roll writer Brent Taylor, but here’s a few things to know:Scarbrough signed with Alabama as a five-star recruit in 2015 with many expecting him to be the Tide’s next Heisman winner. That never came to fruition. He tore his ACL before his freshman year, He had 18 carries that season. As a sophomore, Scarbrough took 125 handoffs and gained 812 yards with 11 touchdowns as the backup to Damien Harris, as well as quarterback Jalen Hurts, who rushed for 954 yards. In his third and final season in Alabama, Scarbrough had 596 yards on 124 carries, an average of 4.8 per attempt. Despite a disappointing career Shaun Alexander Color Rush Jersey , Scarbrough entered the NFL draft early and was selected in the seventh round by the Dallas Cowboys. Despite a seemingly good situation with the Cowboys offense, Scarbrough was cut and the team went with two running backs to open this season. He was signed to the Jaguars practice squad on October 11 and has remained there.At the combine, Scarbrough ran a 4.52 40-yard dash at 228 lbs. He had a 10’9 broad jump and a 40” vertical. For now, there’s no indication that the Seahawks won’t be fine with Chris Carson and Davis, nor do we know for sure that Penny can’t go, but this seems to be a sign that the team is at least concerned that they’ll need depth there for Sunday’s game. We haven’t been notified yet as to who Scarbrough is replacing on the 53.Update: The Seahawks have placed Jordan Simmons on IR to open the roster spot. Simmons missed three seasons at USC with a knee injury and again it seems his knee is costing him opportunities.
