Chukwurah was a versatile player who was always stuck in vanilla 4-3 defenses when he should have been a 3-4 OLB. He actually makes perfect sense for the Seahawks defense which while not a 3-4 it does have similar types of players. It's a bizarre signing only because the guy has been out of football. Based on his past time in the NFL he's actually a very good fit. It's a shame for him he never was used in a Chris Clemons-like role earlier in his career because he probably would have had a better career.

CHuk is a full time personal trainer, and was most likely in better shape then any of the other guys who tried out. Check this out, the guy is ripped http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfD5bkCHiBQ

Remember, John and Pete don't focus on what a player doesn't do well, they look at what someone does really well and focus on putting them into a position to use what they do well. I have no idea what type of player Chuk is but, if he can get after a pass rusher, maybe he's a good fit as a back up.

The reports from earlier must have lied. He didn't beat the competition in tryouts...he ate them Laughing

Hmm... I woulda preferred any of the other 3 over Chuckwarah... But meh, none of them would have been hugely impactful signings anyhoo.

This is a PC/Schneider move if I've ever seen one: Star player goes down in a playoffs? Sign the guy that nobody's heard of! It'll be fun to see if he contributes anything.

i'm sure there's more to it than just body physique. Ray Edwards is ripped too.

Imagine if he got a ring, that would be crazy after being out of the league for years.

Only a good signing if he throws up.

Ray Edwards would be horrible in Bruce Irvin's previous role, which is what we were looking to sign someone to do. I could understand you want Maybin or Laboy more.

I love you vike daddy, but this post is insulting to my football intelligence. I was referring more toward the fact that he would be in good shape because he is a personal trainer and looks like he does. Clearly, this does not mean he is a star NFLer or else I would be in the league JK Laughing
