He is considered one of the greatest Seahawks players of all-time and one of the greatest safeties in NFL history.

In 1984, Easley was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press. He was a four-time All–Pro selection and was elected to the Pro Bowl five times in his career. Easley’s career ended after the 1987 season, when he was diagnosed with severe kidney disease.
