Seahawks Sign Luke Joeckel

The Seahawks have signed former Jaguars offensive lineman Luke Joeckel to a one-year deal, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter (via Twitter).

The former second-overall pick had spent his entire four-year career with the Jaguars. The versatile offensive lineman started 30 games for the team between 2014 and 2015. However, he was limited to only four games in 2016 after undergoing knee surgery.

Joeckel’s ability to play both tackle and guard should be especially useful to Seattle. The team currently has four linemen (excluding centers) on their roster in George FantMark GlowinskiGermain Ifedi, and Rees Odhiambo. Joeckel could reasonably slide in as the team’s starting right tackle.

Joeckel ranked 13th in our listing of the best available free agent interior offensive lineman.

      I agree. Worst case, he’s provides depth at multiple positions.

      Excellent?
      Without knowing the terms it’s hard to say that.
      13th best available interior lineman isn’t saying much….plus he tore up his knee and underperformed in Jax.
      Just sayin.
      He’s only decent depth “if” healthy.

    Pretty sure Seattle is not emptying the bank on this guy. He could be a big bargain if he performs like he once used to.

      He’s never performed well in the NFL. He’s been, at best, an average blocker.

    If Tom Cable can turn a power forward into an almost passable LT in a year he should be able to help this guy if he is healthy.
