The Seahawks just signed guard Mike Iupati, and they’re bringing back another former first-rounder to pair with him.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Seahawks are finalizing a new two-year deal with free agent guard D.J. Fluker.

Fluker started nine games for the Seahawks at right guard last season, but missed time late in the year with a hamstring injury. Originally the 11th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Fluker spent his first four years with the Chargers before a stint with the Giants.

Bringing him back became more important when they lost J.R. Sweezy to the Cardinals, but now they have a stable pair of guards to build around.

  1. DJ Fluker really helped solidify the line with coach Mike Solari. Ifedi may have been one of the worst lineman in football until last year but thanks to Flukers rock steady presence and play beside him; he turned into one of the better RTs.

    Basically the same starting line from last year will be back and cant underestimate cohesion and consistency with offensive lines.

  2. Seahawks fans are getting good news today. Can’t wait to see what the terms are for each player signed today.

  3. 24 rushes for 73 yds against Cowboys in wild card round. Dominated by Antwaun Woods and Maliek Collins.

  4. Come on bentedges, both Fluker AND Sweezy were hurt in that game. They probably wouldn’t have played if it was a regular season game. And Seattle still came back on Dallas and had a chance at the end.

  5. LOL at the Cowboys fan talking trash without realizing who actually played in the game. So hilarious. Ya think he might have wanted to use Google before smack talking some player.

    He was playing with a broken foot so I wouldn’t get too excited about Woods’ performance. Yes he had a good game stat wise but not because he’s a beast.

  7. Umm, juliusanonymous – go look at the starting lineups in that game at profootballreference.com. You would think some poster might look that info up USING GOOGLE before they post something that is so ill-informed. Or, you could just go to NFL dot com and watch the highlight replays, like Collins blowing through and sacking Wilson.
