- Getlin adds that Seattle is looking for more depth at cornerback.
Chekwa, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Raiders back in 2011. He re-signed with the Raiders back in May of last year, but was not tendered a contract as a restricted free agent this past offseason.
Chekwa briefly joined the Patriots for a few more before later returning to the Raiders following this year’s NFL Draft. Oakland wound up releasing him from injured reserve in recent weeks.
In 2014, Chekwa appeared in 10 games for the Raiders and recorded 16 tackles and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 89 total snaps last season.
