Ryan Longwell was going to run a marathon this weekend; instead, he's in the NFL playoffs

Per the AP:

Ryan Longwell's mindset was that he would be running a marathon this weekend.

Instead, he'll be back in the NFL playoffs, kicking for the Seattle Seahawks.

''To be dead-honest with you, my wife is probably the happiest person that I got called in to work,'' Longwell said Wednesday. ''We were actually training all fall for the Disney marathon that's this Sunday coming up so I got her out of that and got me out of it, too.''

Longwell and defensive end Patrick Chukwurah were officially signed by the Seahawks on Wednesday. They take the roster spots of kicker Steven Hauschka and defensive end Chris Clemons, who were both placed on injured reserve.

It's probably safe to say that Sebastian Janikowski, whose kicking season is over, will not be taking over Longwell's marathon bib.
