Seattle Signing Familiar Face At Linebacker

While the Seattle Seahawks still sit under .500 on the season, with a 2-3 record, they've been one of the most enjoyable teams to watch around the entire league, with a resurgent Geno Smith leading the way, but at times, this defence has let the team down from becoming a genuine good team in a very tough NFC West division. To rectify this situation, the team look to be turning to a familiar face, as today, the Seahawks have signed their own former first-round pick in linebacker Bruce Irvin, who has had two stints in Seattle in his career thus far. 

Irvin was drafted No. 15 overall way back in 2012, and although the second stint with the team didn't go as well as the first, as he suffered a torn ACL, as opposed to when he played a key role in the teams Super Bowl XLVIII ring, but with depth being needed, this is a reunion that makes great sense for both parties.

Throughout his career, Irvin has racked up 315 tackles, 52 sacks, 16 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries, 3 interceptions, 13 passes defended and 2 Defensive Touchdowns, and while he's never been the best defender on his team, he's always been a key piece to any defence. The team have signed Irvin to the practice squad for now, but given his talent and experience within the organization, it's only a matter of time until the team bring him to the active roster.
