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 Fant, Mark Glowinski, Germain Ifedi, and Rees Odhiambo. Joeckel could reasonably slide in as the team’s starting right tackle.
