Darboh, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2017. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $3.175 million contract when the Seahawks waived him coming out of the preseason last year.

The Patriots later claimed Darboh off of waivers. However, he lasted just a week in New England before he was waived with a failed physical designation.

Darboh’s contract was reinstated with Seattle and he reverted to their injured reserve. The Seahawks once again waived him and he later signed on to the Buccaneers’ practice squad a few weeks into the season. 

Darboh signed on to the Steelers’ practice squad last year. 

In 2017, Darboh appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and caught eight passes for 71 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
