Seahawks To Sign OL D.J. Fluker

The Seahawks have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with former Giants offensive lineman D.J. Fluker, sources tell Mike Garafolo of NFL.com (Twitter links).

Fluker, a former first-round pick,¬†appeared in nine games with six starts for the Giants in 2017. He was ranked as Pro Football Focus’ No. 56 ranked player at the position, placing him as a low-end starter/high-end backup. He earned much better grades during his first two seasons in the league as a tackle with the Chargers.

Last year, the Seahawks’ offensive line surrendered 209 pressures, per Pro Football Focus, as their zone blocking scheme netted them very little on outside zone runs. Seattle hopes that Fluker will help bolster a unit that has been a weak spot for multiple seasons.

Fluker also met with the Colts before signing with Seattle.

    Good for Seattle, I hope they gave him less than we gave Luke Jokell last season.

    That ranking sounds about right. He wasn’t great but he wasnt bad either and compared to the rest of the Giants OL he was pretty good.

      I agree. And I think the Giants could have resigned him. At least for depth or to start. They still need a lot of help on that Oline.
