20-20: Lawyer Milloy to join Adrian Wilson

Lawyer Milloy returned to the Seattle Seahawks because the coaching staff promised a more prominent role for the veteran safety.

This had the potential to be one of those offseason storylines that never materializes when it matters.

Six games into the 2010 season, it's clear the Seahawks were serious about featuring Milloy. They've made him a starter and used him effectively on blitzes, most recently against the Chicago Bears in Week 6. Milloy got credit for one sack and he's almost certainly going to get credit for another once the Elias Sports Bureau reviews a sack credited to teammate Raheem Brock. Replays showed Milloy making the play.

That second as-yet-unofficial stat would allow Milloy to join Week 7 Seahawks opponent Adrian Wilson of the Arizona Cardinals among 11 known players with at least 20 interceptions and 20 sacks. Milloy has always been a big hitter, but he hasn't been used consistently as a blitzer. His experience, sense of timing and ferocity make him well-suited to the role.

The chart shows players with at least 20 sacks and 20 interceptions since sacks became an official statistic in 1982. I sorted the chart by most total sacks and interceptions.
