After hosting Evan Mathis over the weekend, the Seahawks are expected to bring in another veteran offensive lineman looking for work. According to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (via Twitter), free agent center Samson Satele is expected to visit the Seahawks today.
Satele, 30, spent the 2014 season with the Dolphins, starting all 16 games for the team. The eight-year veteran, who has also spent time with the Raiders and the Colts, has started 114 of his 118 career regular season contests, and we heard back in March that he was looking for a team that would give him an opportunity to compete for a starting center job.
There haven’t been many rumors surrounding Satele since that March report, but it’s not surprising that the Seahawks would want to kick the tires on him. Having traded away Max Unger in an offseason deal, Seattle doesn’t have a clear-cut starter at center, where Drew Nowak is believed to have the lead over Lemuel Jeanpierre. Nowak has never started an NFL game, while Jeanpierre has 11 starts to his name, so adding some veteran depth could make sense.
