RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Against the backdrop of ongoing calls for social justice, Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs is imploring others to register to vote. 

In fact, he just did it for the first time in his life.  

Diggs spoke before the Seahawks returned to practice. 

The team had a previously scheduled day off Thursday and there was discussion about whether to hold practice after teams in the NFL and other leagues called off games or practices following the shooting of Jacob Blake last weekend in Kenosha, Wisconsin. 

For Diggs, spreading the word about voting is a major priority and he said he would be casting an absentee ballot in his native Texas.
