Nowak, 26, originally signed on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Western Michigan back in 2012. He spent a few years on and of the Jaguars’ active roster before signing a future/reserve contract with Seattle back in February of last year.

The Seahawks wound up entering the 2015 season with Nowak as their starting center after trading Max Unger to the Saints in return for Jimmy Graham. However, he was waived later on in the year.

Seattle elected to bring him back on a future/reserve deal a few months ago.
