David Matthew Wyman (born March 31, 1964) is a former professional football player, a linebacker in the National Football League for nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.

Early years[edit]

Born in San Diego, California, Wyman attended from Earl Wooster High School in Reno, Nevada, and graduated in 1982. He played college football at Stanford, where he led the team in tackles as a sophomore in 1983 and again in 1984, but incurred a knee injury in the penultimate game.[1][2] Wyman redshirted in 1985 and returned in 1986 to lead the Cardinal with 169 tackles and was All-Pac-10.[3]

Professional career[edit]

Wyman was selected by the Seahawks in the second round of the 1987 NFL Draft with the 45th overall selection. Midway through his rookie year in 1987, he was traded to the San Francisco 49ers,[4] but a failed physical due to a bad left shoulder nullified it.[5] Wyman played six seasons for the Seahawks, but left as a free agent before the 1993 season[6][7] and played his final three years with the Broncos.

Wyman and Brian Bosworth were next-door neighbors on the Eastside while they were teammates with the Seahawks.[8]

After football[edit]

Wyman returned to the Seattle area and is currently a co-host of the afternoon radio show Danny, Dave & Moore on KIRO 710, part of the ESPN Radio network. He is a frequent contributor to Seahawks Saturday Night on KCPQ television, the Seattle Fox affiliate.


Wyman married Shannon Forrest of Edmonds in May 1993;[7] they met while she was a member of the Sea Gals and they have two sons.[9]
