Seahawks to Honor the Late Paul Allen with a Patch on Their Uniforms

The Seahawks are honoring the late Paul Allen the rest of the regular season, starting Sunday, Herbie Teope of NFL.com reports.

Bert Kolde, who serves as vice chairman of the Seahawks and Portland Trail Blazers, announced Friday that the Seahawks will pay tribute to the team’s former owner with a patch on their jerseys bearing Allen’s initials, PGA, in front of a 12th-man flag.

“Paul will always be close to our hearts,” Kolde tweeted.

Allen passed away on Oct. 15 at the age 65 following a battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Allen, a co-founder of Microsoft with Bill Gates, served as the owner of the Trail Blazers and Seahawks, a team he purchased in 1997.
