Seahawks Signing LB Michael Wilhoite

Ian Rapoport reports that the Seahawks are signing free agent LB Michael Wilhoite to a contract.

The Seahawks brought Wilhoite in for a visit this week, so they were apparently impressed enough to sign him.

Wilhoite, 30, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Washburn back in 2011. He eventually worked his way up to the 53-man roster during the 2012 season and has been playing under one-year contracts for the past three seasons.

In 2016, Wilhoite appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 55 tackles, a half sack, a forced fumble, a recovery and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 83 linebacker out of 87 qualifying players.
