Seahawks Remember Alex Collins


The Seahawks organization is grieving the loss of Alex Collins, a former teammate who was adored by both the fans and the team during his two separate periods playing for them.

On Monday, Collins, who was 28 years old, lost his life due to a motorcycle collision.

"With great sadness, we inform you that our dear Alex Collins passed away this morning," the Collins family stated. "Alex was deeply loved by both family and friends, as well as supporters from across the globe. Those who truly knew him can affirm his determination, relentless spirit, and extraordinary personality. We humbly seek your prayers and well wishes for our family during this challenging period. As we grieve, we kindly request privacy. Any updates relating to the funeral will be shared as soon as they are finalized."

"The Seahawks organization and their fans are deeply saddened by the news of Alex's passing," expressed John Schneider, the executive VP/general manager of the Seahawks. "We will always miss Alex's infectious smile and impressive river dance skills. He had a special ability to bring joy to any room and was well-loved by everyone in our organization. Alex approached life with enthusiasm and determination on the football field, and he will be remembered as one of the most successful runners in SEC history. Our sincere thoughts and condolences go out to his immediate family, the Gatewood family, and his agent Kelli Masters. Alex, you will be forever missed. On behalf of Jody Allen, Pete Carroll, Chuck Arnold, Chad Morton, and the entire Seahawks community, may you rest in peace, brother."

In 2016, Collins became a member of the Seahawks after being selected in the fifth round of the draft. He later played for Baltimore before coming back to Seattle in 2020 and 2021. During this time, his contributions to the running game earned him recognition and admiration from both teammates and coaches.
