Seahawks Sign TE Luke Willson & LB Ray-Ray Armstrong To Practice Squad


The #Seahawks signed #Luke #Willson to their practice squad on #Wednesday, bringing back the veteran tight end who has been a fan favorite since first arriving in #Seattle as a fifth-round pick in 2013.

The #Seahawks also brought back to the practice squad linebacker #Ray-Ray #Armstrong, an eight-year veteran who has spent most of the season on #Seattle’s practice squad. #Armstrong has appeared in two games for #Seattle as a practice squad elevation, a #Week 7 loss to #Arizona and a #Week 14 win over the #New #York #Jets.

#Willson, who spent his first five seasons in #Seattle before leaving in free agency in 2018, returned to #Seattle last season following the trade that sent tight end #Nick #Vannett to #Pittsburgh, then re-signed as a free agent in #April.

#Willson appeared in five games for the #Seahawks this season before being released after rookie tight end #Colby #Parkinson was activated off the non-football injury list, then spent three games with the #Baltimore #Ravens before they let him go earlier this month. #After releasing #Willson, #Seahawks coach #Pete #Carroll made it clear the team was open to a reunion.

“I would love to see #Luke back,” #Carroll said. “I love him on our team.”

#Willson has appeared in 85 games for the #Seahawks over seven seasons, starting 44 with 97 catches for 1,208 yards and 11 touchdowns, played on two #Super #Bowl teams, and caught the most famous 2-point conversion in team history, a catch that gave the #Seahawks a 3-point lead late in their NFC #Championship #Game victory over the #Packers. #In addition to providing depth at tight end, #Willson has been a strong special teams player throughout his career so he could also help the team there.

The #Seahawks had two openings on their practice squad, having released cornerback #DeMarkus #Acy and defensive tackle #Myles #Adams on #Tuesday.
