Grayson, 23, hadn’t played organized football since 2011 when he was still a senior at Rummel High School in the New Orleans. However, Grayson was a standout track star at LSU and a seven-time All-American on both indoor and outdoor tracks. He also won four national championships on relay teams.
Grayson took part in LSU’s Pro Day and posted a 4.33 seconds in the 40-yard dash, posted a 10-foot, 7-inch broad jump, and a 34.5-inch vertical leap.
The Seahawks signed him to a contract back in April but he was waived coming out of the preseason. He had a brief stint on the Seahawks practice squad.
During his senior season in high school, Grayson caught 28 passes for 731 yards receiving and eight touchdowns.
