Seahawks Worked Out LBs Junior Sylvestre & Ron Thompson


Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Seahawks brought in free agent linebackers Junior Sylvestre and Ron Thompson for workouts on Monday.

It’s possible that both players could be considered for future/reserve contracts after the Seahawks’ season has concluded.

Sylvestre, 24, wound up signing on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo back in May of last year. He wound up being placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Unfortunately, the Colts elected to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

Sylvestre has yet to appear in an NFL game.

Thompson, 23, signed a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Syracuse back in May. He waived with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and later reverted to the team’s injured reserve list before being waived with an injury settlement a week later.

During his college career, Thompson recorded 87 tackles, 12 sacks, a fumble recovery, six forced fumbles and 10 pass defenses over the course of 33 games.
