Now Seattle Seahawks Russell Okung has gone to Pamplona, Spain to run with the bulls as well.

Apparently Okung’s Peter Schaffer accompanied him on the trip. It seems like a NFL Agent would want to keep his client, who plays a position not known for their speed or ability to run, out of the way of charging bulls. But he made it out alive and everyone can breathe easy.
Jason Babin once said he wanted to run with the bulls, but his Philadelphia Eagles teammate Michael Vick encouraged him not to (you know its cruel to the animals).
While most contracts would probably prevent this behavior, Okung talked to the Seahawks about it and they didn’t object.
