On August 26, 1976 the Seahawks traded an eighth round pick in 1977 to the Houston Oilers for Steve Largent.
The franchise's first win came on October 17 when they beat their expansion brethren Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13-10 at Tampa Bay.
On December 5, 1974, NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle announced the official signing of the franchise agreement by Lloyd W.
The Seahawks are the only NFL team to switch conferences twice.
However, the exciting play of Jim Zorn and Largent served notice of the entertainment to come.
The Seahawks hosted the 1977 Pro Bowl in the Kingdome on January 17, 1977, and a sellout crowd of 63,214 saw the AFC beat the NFC 24-14. In a reversal of the cunning that brought them Largent, the Seahawks traded their first round pick in 1977 to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a first and 3 second round draft picks.
On November 7 they won their first game at home, 30-13 over the Atlanta Falcons.
Those were the lone victories in an inaugural 2-12 season.
