Seahawks Open To Bringing Back Veteran G J.R. Sweezy?


Mike Garafolo of NFL Media mentions that a return to the Seahawks could make “a lot of sense” for veteran G J.R. Sweezy, who was released by the Buccaneers on Friday. Garafolo thinks this would be something the Seahawks would be open to exploring.

Sweezy, 29, is a former seventh-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with Seattle before signing a five-year, $32.5 million deal with the Buccaneers in 2016.

Sweezy was set to make base salaries of $6.5 million and $5.75 million over the next two years when Tampa Bay cut him loose in a move that freed up $6.5million of cap room.

In 2017, Sweezy appeared in 14 games for the Buccaneers. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 53 overall guard out of 77 qualifiers.

We’ll have more regarding the Seahawks and Sweezy as the news is available.
