2011 season

Despite leading Stanford in receiving yards as a senior, Baldwin went undrafted in the 2011 NFL Draft.[9][10] He signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent following the end of the 2011 NFL lockout to a three-year deal worth $1.4 million.[11]

Baldwin caught his first career NFL touchdown, a 55-yard reception from quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, in Week 1 of the 2011 season against the San Francisco 49ers, a team which was coached by Jim Harbaugh, Baldwin's former college coach.[12][13] He finished fourth in rookie reception yardage in the 2011 NFL season, and led the Seahawks in both receiving yards and receptions.[14] He also made the USA Today All-Joe Team for players who are talented and had put up good numbers, but did not receive a Pro Bowl bid. He became the first undrafted rookie free agent to lead his team in receptions and yards receiving since the AFL-NFL merger.[15]

2012 season

Baldwin changed his uniform number from #15 to #89 for the 2012 NFL season to allow the incoming quarterback Matt Flynn to have #15.[16] After week 1 of the 2012 season, Baldwin required dental surgery after diving for a pass.[17] He suffered a shoulder injury during practice prior to Week 3 and a high ankle sprain during a punt return in Week 7, both of which kept him out the following weeks' games.[18][19]

In the 2012 regular season, Baldwin had 29 receptions for 336 yards and three touchdowns in his first season with quarterback Russell Wilson.[20]

Baldwin and the Seahawks made the playoffs after a successful regular season.[21] Against the Washington Redskins in the Wild Card Round, Baldwin two receptions for 39 yards in the 24–14 victory at FedExField.[22] In the Divisional Round against the Atlanta Falcons, Baldwin had one reception for six yards in the 30–28 loss at the Georgia Dome.[23]

2013 season: Super Bowl run

Regular season

In his third season, Baldwin and the Seahawks had a very successful year. Baldwin caught a career-high five touchdowns in the 2013 season.[24] In the season opener against the Carolina Panthers, he had a season-high seven receptions for 91 receiving yards.[25] Two weeks later, he had his first receiving touchdown of the season, a 35-yard touchdown pass from Tarvaris Jackson, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.[26] On November 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he had six receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown.[27] Overall, in the 2013 regular season, he had 50 receptions for 778 yards and five touchdowns. He finished second on the team in receptions and yards.[28]

Postseason

As a result of the Seahawks 13-3 regular season record, Baldwin and the rest of the team received a first-round bye.[29]

In the Divisional Round against the New Orleans Saints, Baldwin had two receptions for 30 yards in the 23-15 victory.[30] In the NFC Championship against the San Francisco 49ers, Baldwin had six receptions for 106 yards in the 23-17 victory.[31]

Super Bowl XLVIII

In Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos, Baldwin led all Seahawks wide receivers with five receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown in the 43-8 victory.[32]

Prior to the Super Bowl, former NFL wide receiver Cris Carter made comments questioning the quality of the Seattle receiving corps. After the game, Doug Baldwin said, "OK, y’all listen to me loud and clear," he said. "Y’all listening? Y’all hear me? For all y’all who called us, the receiving corps, average, pedestrian, appetizers—I’m not going to say any names, but he knows who he is—I respect what you did on the field, but stick to playing football, because your analytical skills ain’t up to par yet. You need to slow down and go back and not do it half-assed and put some effort into it, because you’re saying some stuff that didn’t really make sense... That dude who said that we were appetizers, he told me to Google him, and I did Google him, but I didn’t see any Super Bowl appearances, and I also saw two losses in conference championships. I have a Super Bowl ring, and I would gladly show that to him. And if he doesn’t have time to come see it, tell him he can Google it."[33]

2014 season: Return to the Super Bowl

On March 7, 2014, the Seahawks placed a one-year, second-round tender worth $2.187 million on Baldwin,[34] but he never signed it.[35] Instead, on May 29, Baldwin signed a new two-year, $13 million contract, which included the one-year tender offered to him earlier, making his contract extension three years.[36][37][38] Baldwin became the primary receiving threat on the Seahawks after Percy Harvin was traded to the New York Jets.[39]

Regular season

In the season opener against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football, Baldwin had three receptions for 14 yards in the 36-16 victory.[40] Baldwin had his second career regular-season 100-yard game in Week 7 against the St. Louis Rams, reeling in seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in a 28-26 defeat.[41] In Week 14, Baldwin had five catches for 97 yards and a touchdown, and also drew a long pass interference penalty, in a 24–14 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.[42] In Week 16, he had seven receptions for 113 yards against the Arizona Cardinals.[43] Baldwin's 66 receptions and 825 receiving yards for the season were both career highs. In addition, he totaled three receiving touchdowns on the season.[44]

Postseason

In the Divisional Round against the Carolina Panthers, Baldwin caught a 16-yard touchdown pass for the first score of the game in an eventual 31-17 victory.[45] In the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, Baldwin had six catches for 106 yards, including a 35-yard catch in overtime immediately preceding the game-winning touchdown by wide receiver Jermaine Kearse.[46] Baldwin took over kick return duties in this game due to injury, fumbling once and averaging just 19.3 yards on three returns.[47]

In Super Bowl XLIX, Baldwin was held to one catch for three yards and scored Seattle's last touchdown of the season as they failed to repeat as Super Bowl champions.[48] Baldwin celebrated the touchdown with a vulgar pantomime which gained significant attention on social media as the "poopdown", and which earned a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. He commented after the game that the celebration was directed at an unnamed group, who were not present at the game.[49] He was later fined $11,025 for his actions by the NFL.[50] The Seahawks did not score again in the game, and went on to lose 28-24 to the New England Patriots. Baldwin later apologized for the incident, clarifying that the gesture was directed at opposing star cornerback Darrelle Revis, and that "it was just kind of a built-up frustration I was letting out in that sequence, between him and I."[51]

2015 season

During the 2015 offseason, the Seahawks acquired Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham from the New Orleans Saints and drafted speedy Kansas State wide receiver Tyler Lockett, giving Baldwin and the Seahawks two more offensive weapons. Baldwin entered training camp as the projected #1 receiver for Seattle. In the season opener against the St. Louis Rams, Baldwin started the season with seven receptions for 35 yards in a 34-31 overtime loss.[52] In Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers Baldwin had seven receptions for 92 yards and one touchdown in a 27–17 loss.[53] In Week 4 against the Detroit Lions, Baldwin had three receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown in a controversial win for the Seahawks.[54]

In Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals, Baldwin had seven receptions for 134 yards and a touchdown in a 32–39 loss.[55] In Week 12 against the Steelers, Baldwin had a huge day, with six receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns. The third touchdown against Pittsburgh came on a career-high 80-yard touchdown on a third down play, effectively ending the game, which the Seahawks won by a score of 39–30. His performance against the Steelers was the first three-touchdown game of Baldwin's career.[56]

In Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings, Baldwin had another big day, with five receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns in a 38–7 victory.[57] The next week, Baldwin and the Seahawks went to Baltimore to face the Ravens and Baldwin again had a great game, with six receptions for 82 yards and three touchdowns.[58] In Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns, Baldwin had four receptions for 45 yards and two touchdowns.[59] After his performance against the Browns, Baldwin joined Hall of Famer Jerry Rice as the only players in league history with at least 10 receiving touchdowns in a four-game span. Baldwin also caught at least two touchdowns in four straight games, a feat that only Calvin Johnson and Hall of Famer Cris Carter have accomplished since 1960.

In Week 16 against the Rams, Baldwin recorded 10 catches for 118 yards and a touchdown.[60] Although the Seahawks lost by a score of 23–17, Baldwin set a team record for touchdown receptions in a single season with 14, surpassing the mark of 13 set by Daryl Turner. He also became the first Seahawks receiver to record 1,000 receiving yards since 2007. After Week 17, his season totals of 78 receptions for 1,069 yards and 14 touchdowns[61] were all career highs.[62] His 14 touchdowns led the league for the 2015 season.[63]

In the Wild Card Round of the postseason against the Minnesota Vikings, Baldwin registered five catches for 42 yards and the only touchdown scored in the game, which the Seahawks won by a score of 10–9.[64] The 2015 season for the Seahawks and Baldwin ended the following week against the eventual NFC Champion Carolina Panthers in the Divisional Round. In the 31-24 loss, Baldwin had eight receptions for 82 yards.[65]

Baldwin was ranked as the 72nd best player in the NFL by his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2016.[66]

2016 season

Baldwin and the Seahawks agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $46 million, with $24.25 million guaranteed. At the time, Baldwin became the sixth-highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.[67]

Baldwin started the 2016 season with a nine-catch, 92-yard outing against the Miami Dolphins, including a three-yard touchdown catch with less than a minute left to secure a narrow 12–10 victory for the Seahawks.[68] Two weeks later against the San Francisco 49ers, Baldwin hauled in eight receptions for then a career-high 164 receiving yards, including a touchdown.[69] In Week 10 on the road against the New England Patriots, he caught six passes for 59 yards, including three touchdowns, equaling a career-high.[70] The following week against the Philadelphia Eagles, he caught four passes for 104 yards and threw his first career touchdown pass on a reverse wide receiver pass to Russell Wilson.[71] Against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16, he recorded 13 catches for another career-high 171 receiving yards and a touchdown.[72] Much like the 2015 season, Baldwin's 2016 season was a strong one, and he finished with 94 receptions 1,128 yards and seven touchdowns.[73] In the playoffs, Baldwin continued his strong play. In the Wild Card Round against the sixth-seeded Detroit Lions, Baldwin recorded 11 receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown as the Seahawks defeated the Lions by a score of 26-6.[74] In the Divisional Round, Baldwin again had another strong performance against the second-seeded Atlanta Falcons, catching five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown. However, the Seahawks' season ended as they fell by a score of 36-20.[75] On January 23, 2017, Baldwin was named to his first career Pro Bowl as an injury replacement for Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals.[76] He was also ranked 88th by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2017.[77]

2017 season

Baldwin caught 75 passes for 991 yards and eight touchdowns during the 2017 season.[78] He had two 100+ yard games: 10 receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown in a Week 3 loss to Tennessee and seven receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown in a Week 8 loss to Washington.[79] He was named to the 2018 Pro Bowl as an injury replacement for Larry Fitzgerald.[80] He was ranked 99th by his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2018.[81]

2018 season

Baldwin suffered an elbow injury early in Week 1 of the 2018 season, limiting him to just six receptions for 42 yards through the first five weeks.[82] In Week 6, he had six receptions for 91 yards in the 27–3 win over Oakland, but re-aggravated the elbow.[83][84]

On May 9, 2019, the Seahawks released Baldwin with a failed physical designation.[85]

On May 12, 2019, Baldwin announced his retirement on Twitter.[86]

List of Seattle Seahawks records

This article details statistics relating to the Seattle Seahawks NFL football team, including career, single season and game records.

Super Bowl XLIX

Super Bowl XLIX was an American football game played to determine the champion of the National Football League (NFL) for the 2014 season. The American Football Conference (AFC) champion New England Patriots defeated the National Football Conference (NFC) champion and defending Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks 28–24 to earn their fourth Super Bowl title and their first since Super Bowl XXXIX 10 years earlier. The game was played on February 1, 2015 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. It was the second time the stadium has hosted a Super Bowl (following Super Bowl XLII seven years earlier), and the third one held in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

With the loss, the Seahawks became the fourth defending Super Bowl champions to lose in the following year's title game, after the 1978 Dallas Cowboys, 1983 Washington Redskins and the 1997 Green Bay Packers. After finishing the previous season by defeating the Denver Broncos, 43–8, in Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle completed the 2014 regular season with a 12–4 record. The Patriots, who also posted a 12–4 record, joined the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers as one of the three teams to have made eight appearances in the Super Bowl. For the second straight season, but only the third time in the prior 21 seasons, the number one seeds from both conferences met in the league championship game. Seattle became the first team to appear in consecutive Super Bowls since New England won two straight (XXXVIII and XXXIX).

After the teams were tied 14–14 at halftime, the Seahawks built a 10-point lead to end the third quarter. The Patriots, however, rallied to take a 28–24 lead with 2:02 left in the game. Seattle threatened to score in the final moments, driving the ball to New England's 1-yard line. With 26 seconds remaining in the game, Seattle decided to pass the ball in a highly scrutinized call that resulted in Patriots undrafted rookie Malcolm Butler making a game-saving interception of Russell Wilson's throw. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the game's Most Valuable Player (MVP) after a then Super Bowl-record 37 completions on 50 attempts for 328 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions (a record Brady himself would break 2 years later in Super Bowl LI).

NBC's broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX remains the most-watched program in the network's history, as well as the most watched program in American television history, surpassing the previous year's game. The game was seen by an average of 114.4 million viewers, with it reaching to 118.5 million during the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show featuring Katy Perry, and then peaking to 120.8 million during New England's fourth-quarter comeback.

Super Bowl XLVIII

Super Bowl XLVIII was an American football game between the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Denver Broncos and National Football Conference (NFC) champion Seattle Seahawks to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 2013 season. The Seahawks defeated the Broncos 43–8, the largest margin of victory for an underdog and tied for the third largest point differential overall (35) in Super Bowl history with Super Bowl XXVII (1993). It was the first time the winning team scored over 40 points, while holding their opponent to under 10. This became the first Super Bowl victory for the Seahawks and the fifth Super Bowl loss for the Broncos, tied with the New England Patriots for the most of any team. The game was played on February 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the first Super Bowl played outdoors in a cold-weather city and the first Super Bowl to be played on February 2.This marked the third time the number one seed from each conference met in the league championship, joining Super Bowl XXVIII (1994) and Super Bowl XLIV (2010). The Seahawks posted a 13–3 record and were making their second Super Bowl appearance in eight years. The Broncos were making their seventh Super Bowl appearance after also posting a 13–3 record. The game also featured the league's top offense (Denver) against the top defense (Seattle), the first time this occurred since Super Bowl XXXVII (2003). This also marked the only time that two former divisional rivals met in a Super Bowl, as the Seahawks and Broncos were in the same division from 1978 to 2001.

Seattle built a 22–0 halftime lead, and then a 36–0 advantage before allowing Denver's first and only score on the final play of the third quarter. The Seahawks defense scored a safety on the first play from scrimmage (coincidentally, the final play from scrimmage of the previous Super Bowl was also a safety), the quickest score in Super Bowl history at 12 seconds. They also became the first team in a Super Bowl to score on a safety, a kickoff return for a touchdown (12 seconds into the second half), and an interception return for a touchdown. The Broncos were held to almost 30 points below their scoring average. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, a five-time NFL Most Valuable Player (MVP) award winner, threw two interceptions in the first half. Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith, who returned one of those interceptions 69 yards for a touchdown, recovered a fumble and made nine tackles, was named Super Bowl MVP.In the United States, the game was televised by Fox; with an average audience of 111.5 million viewers, and peaking at 115.3 million during the halftime show featuring Bruno Mars, the game was briefly the most-watched U.S. television broadcast of all time, until it was surpassed the following year. The game's inaugural Spanish-language telecast on Fox Deportes was also the highest-rated Spanish-language cable telecast outside of soccer.
