I recently wrote to Mr. Blinks to see if he is indeed the same Jarvis Blinks who played for the Seahawks. His reply is shown below. I'd like to extend my thanks and appreciation to Mr. Blinks for the courtesy of a reply and for allowing us to publish his letter on this site.

Yes, I am that person that was drafted by the Seahawks in 1976. Approximately ten days prior to the final cut, I was injured. My injury did not respond to treatment, so I was unable to run or play my position. This led to my being put on waviers and released from the team. Presently, I am a teacher/coach in my hometown of Many, LA.
