The spin coming out of Seattle is that the Seahawks only drafted him because they were being nice guys and wanted him to have health insurance.
Are you sure? That sounds like an outrageous stretch. In fact, it sounds so hyperbolic that I doubt even the most biased sports fan would say that.
Where did you read this "spin"? They only thing I've heard is that that, after drafting him and discovering he had a condition, they signed him anyway so that he'd get some perks out of it. That's not really a spin, that is a genuinely classy move by the organization. Are you sure you didn't hear this story and confuse it with 'they knew he had this condition and drafted him anyway because they're great guys?"
