The Seattle Seahawks have seen some pretty good running backs in Sherman Smith, Dan Doornink, Chris Warren, Sean Alexander, and Marshawn Lynch. Today marks the 53rd birthday of one of the best, Curt Warner.

Here’s what Seahawks Insider Clare Farnsworth had to say about Warner today at seahawks.com.

How is possible that Curt Warner turns 53-years old on Tuesday?

The same way it’s possible that it was 31 years ago the Seahawks traded away their 1983 NFL Draft to move up to the No. 3 spot so they could select the running back from Penn State to put the legs in the “Ground Chuck” offense of new coach Chuck Knox; and 28 years ago that Warner led the AFC in rushing with a career-high 1,481 yards; and 20 years ago that Warner became the fifth person inducted into the Seahawks’ Ring of Honor.

The first time Warner carried the ball in a regular season game against the Kansas City Chiefs in 1983, he broke a 60-yard run up the sideline. It was only a glimpse of things to come.

He sat out the 1984 season after tearing a knee ligament in the opener, only to come back the next season to rush for 1,094 yards and eight touchdowns and also catch a career-high 47 passes in 1985.

The following video gives you a look at the player Curt Warner was, and an update on his current activities.
