Morning Links: Closing time

Good morning. We've officially entered the offseason.

The Seahawks made their way through a swollen downtown packed with fans yesterday. A ceremony at CenturyLink Field followed.

We're going to be winding it down a bit for a couple days here on the blog. The combine is coming right up at the end of February. Then, we'll hit free agency in March. Eventually, the draft in May.

For today, we'll get to the links:

> Dave Boling on the day and ceremony.

> There were long lines, and it was cold, but that didn't stop anyone from coming out.

> Even the ferries were packed.

> About 700,000 people were estimated to have attended the parade, many from the South Sound.

> Pete Carroll says the team came out healthy, he's looking to keep it together, and each player needs to have a big offseason.

> Our photo gallery from the day's festivities.
