I'm surprised this hasn't shown up in the Where are they now thread? or this thread, but Ryan Longwell has signed with the Seahawks after winning a tryout competition.

Seattle will sign veteran kicker Ryan Longwell, a 15-year veteran who has not kicked in the NFL this season. Longwell was one of several kickers who came into Seattle's facility for a tryout on Tuesday.

Hauschka suffered a left calf injury during the first half of Sunday's 24-14 wild-card win over the Washington Redskins. He left the game briefly before returning with a noticeable limp. Punter Jon Ryan was forced into kickoff duties at one point, putting the Seahawks in a very vulnerable position.

Hauschka is still in the mix to kick in Sunday's divisional round matchup against the Atlanta Falcons and will be examined as the week progresses. If Hauschka can't go, Longwell is the man.

With a need at defensive end due to Chris Clemons being lost for the season due to a torn ACL and meniscus, the Seattle Seahawks have again looked to an unexpected place to address their need.

The Seahawks are expected to sign defensive end Patrick Chukwurah to take Clemons place on the roster. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network

Chukwurah hasn’t played in the NFL since 2008

Just call them the Seattle Vikings

You would think so since he's being beat out by a guy that hasn't played since 2008. Edwards probably wanted too much money, because he was going to break to the NFL post season sack record.

I would have to say that I think Spielman and CO. made the correct calls in letting Sidney Rice and Ray Edwards walk; Edwards to a greater extent.

Ray Edwards doesnt really fit in Chris Clemons role as a LEO pass rusher, basically a standup 3-4 OLB type. Chukwurah is a very odd player to sign, he hasnt played since 2008 Shocked

Chuckwurah, the former Broncos linebacker and special teams ace, signed a contract with the Seahawks Tuesday night to take Clemons' spot on the roster. He beat out a trio of bigger named defenders including Ray Edwards, Aaron Maybin and Travis LaBoy.

Chukwurah's best season in the NFL came in 2006 with the Broncos when he totaled 4.5 sacks. He was drafted in the 5th round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings and spent 2 seasons with the purple before spending 3+ seasons with the Broncos. Chukwurah last played in the NFL late in the 2008 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Chukwurah led the UFL in sacks two straight seasons before becoming a personal trainer in hopes of finding a way back to the NFL.

Personal training as a way to get into the NFL. Where do I sign up for that?!? I could play tight end; give me Carlson's money!

Wow. Chukwurah? That's a blast from the past. What's he been doing for nearly 5 years? Not only has he not played in the NFL in nearly 5 years, he hasn't even played football at all for 3. How crazy is that?

now he shows up for the playoff run. at the most he'll play three games and could come up with a Super Bowl ring.

Applause

Brad Childress may soon work for Andy Reid again.

Childress, the former Vikings head coach, is in Kansas City interviewing for a job with the Chiefs, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Reid, the Chiefs’ new head coach, could hire Childress as either the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator or as an advisor to the head coach.

If Childress is hired as an adviser to the head coach, that cant be a good thing Laughing

I dont even think he is a good OC, but I know Reid is a control freak with the offense so Childress can go back to being Reid's puppet.

He said he was preparing to run a marathon in Orlando this weekend, so he should be able to handle the cardiovascular exertion of kicking extra points.
