The Seahawks have one of the best human-interest stories in the NFL in Shaquem Griffin. But the linebacker can flat out play.

The Seahawks announced on Wednesday that K.J. Wright will not be playing on Sunday versus the Denver Broncos. In Wright’s place will play rookie Shaquem Griffin. Griffin is the twin brother of Seattle cornerback Shaquill Griffin.

But we all know what gets Shaquem a lot of attention and that is that he has just one hand. My question is how long will he get noticed for this? In preseason games he produced at a relatively high level. Griffin had a lot of tackles but mostly again backups. But he still showed speed and flashes of brilliance.
