Stories behind every Super Bowl ring

They're big and small. They've been lost while surfing in Hawaii and dancing at Studio 54. They've been found in taxis and hotel nightstands. Each ring, and its wearer, has a unique story to tell.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told the NFL Network that linebacker Bobby Wagner won't play in the Pro Bowl because of "a little problem with his knee" that he didn't know he was dealing with until it was discovered in his exit physical. Carroll said he doesn't think Wagner will need surgery, just rest. Wagner and Russell Wilson were the two Seahawks initially voted to the Pro Bowl. Cornerback Shaquill Griffin was just added as a replacement. Carroll and his staff are coaching the NFC team.

Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin has been added to the NFC's Pro Bowl roster with Richard Sherman and the 49ers heading to the Super Bowl. It's his first career Pro Bowl for Griffin, who grew up just outside of Orlando in St. Petersburg. Griffin had a bounce-back 2019 season after an up-and-down 2018. According to Pro Football Focus, his 13 pass breakups during the regular season were tied for second-most in the NFL. He joins Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner as Seattle's Pro Bowlers.

Of the decision to punt on fourth-and-11 on what turned out to be the Seahawks' final play vs. Green Bay, Pete Carroll said "we felt our odds were so low" of converting. Here are some numbers to consider: Per ESPN charting, NFL teams converted 19 of 75 fourth-and-11 tries over the past 10 seasons, so just over 25%. Going back 15 seasons, it's 32 of 111, which is just under 29%.

Seahawks signed six players to futures contracts, per the NFL's transaction wire. That secures their rights for next season. All ended the season on Seattle's practice squad, which dissolves once a team's season ends. The six players: CB Brian Allen, WR Penny Hart, LB Sutton Smith, DT Soto Shakir, LB Pita Taumoepenu, WR Cody Thompson.

Pete Carroll's parting message to Tre Flowers, who struggled in the Seahawks final two games: "That we've got to get better, come back next year and capitalize on all of the experiences, settle in. This is two big years he's had, and it was hard yesterday. They ran some good stuff at him [with] a really good player, too. But he's going to continue to get better. He's a really smart player. He's tough as hell. He really competes and all that. He'll make good progress I think from Year 2 to 3."

While assessing the Seahawks' defensive issues in 2019, Pete Carroll indicated some scheme adjustments are in the offing. "We had containment issues," he said. "We found that offenses really put the ball on the perimeter against us a lot. You'll see some things be adjusted ... for that ... Some of it will be going back to things that we've done and some of the things will be moving forward. I'm really excited to go about it. It's difficult to adjust some things in the middle of the year."

Pete Carroll said he wants to see continuity and not major changes along the Seahawks' offense line "because we made good progress" there. Right tackle Germain Ifedi, left guard Mike Iupati and backup left tackle George Fant are set to be unrestricted free agents. Center Joey Hunt is restricted. "I hope we can keep our guys connected here," Carroll said. "I think the whole group, it could be a really solid group coming back. I'd like to see the guys that have played for us stay with us."

Pete Carroll said Jadeveon Clowney will have surgery on his core-muscle injury within the next week or so. As for the pending free agent's future? "I don't know how much he's talked about it but he loves it here and he wants to be here," Carroll said. "He dropped up to see [general manager John Schneider] just to let him know how important it was to him. He had a great time." Carroll added: "He's a terrific football player and he had a big impact on us. We would love to have him back."

Shaquem Griffin's sack came on one of his five defensive snaps against Green Bay. The Seahawks went with a base-heavy defensive gameplan as they did throughout this season — for better or worse. That meant only 11 defensive snaps for nickelback Ugo Amadi.
