Not many people even knew the former Wildcat wide receiver was still in the NFL when he became the Seahawks’ mot outstanding playmaker during last year’s run to the Super Bowl.

In the NFC Championship game, he recovered an onside kick that setup the Seahawks game-winning drive over the Packers.  He followed up that big play with his first NFL reception in the Super Bowl, 44-yards down the field. ARE YOU KIDDING?!? He topped that by scoring on his second career catch, a 4th down back-shoulder touchdown with time winding down in the first half to the ball game at 14.  He finished the game with four catches for 109 yards and the score.  

Unfortunately, he couldn’t find any consistency this season and today he was cut by the Seahawks according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.  And to think, he was almost the Super Bowl MVP.

Good luck Chris, hopefully we’ll see you on an NFL roster soon.
