Seattle Seahawks guard Chris Gray was named the Seahawks' recipient of the 2008 Ed Block Courage Award.
The Ed Block Courage Award is named after the longtime trainer of the Baltimore Colts, and is awarded to the player who exemplifies the principles of courage and sportsmanship, and serves as an inspiration to his teammates.
Gray, 38, attempted to return for a 16th season in the NFL, but a back injury early in training camp forced him to announce his retirement.

2005: Bobby Engram, WR
2004: Chad Brown, LB
