The Seattle Seahawks announced Wednesday night that they have agreed to terms with offensive lineman Frank Omiyale, formerly of the Bears.
The Seahawks’ website release on Omiyale’s signing cites his familiarity with the “zone-blocking scheme” installed last year by offensive line coach Tom Cable. Omiyale, now 29, played for Cable in Atlanta early in his career.
Omiyale goes 6-foot-4, 315, and can play four positions on the offensive line. In Seattle, he will likely provide competition for projected starting right guard James Carpenter and right tackle Breno Giacomini.
Carpenter, the Seahawks’ first-round pick last April, is tentatively expected to move from tackle to guard.
