The Seahawks have once again acquired guard J.R. Sweezy.
Sweezy, a seventh-round pick of the Seahawks in 2012, re-signed with Seattle today. To make room for Sweezy on the roster, the Seahawks waived guard Avery Young.
The 29-year-old Sweezy started 14 games for the Buccaneers last season. That was actually the only season he played for the Buccaneers, despite signing a five-year deal worth $32.5 million with them in 2016. He missed the entire 2016 season with a back injury, and the Bucs released him this offseason.
Despite playing defense in college, Sweezy developed into a starting offensive lineman in Seattle, starting 46 games from 2013 to 2015 for the Seahawks.
