Tight end Luke Willson heading home, signs with Lions

Tight end Luke Willson heading home, signs with Lions

The Seattle Times said Willson, however, left Detroit without a deal. Detroit was Willson's most recent visit, on Saturday. And Seattle also may have declined to offer Willson much since the Seahawks need a few unrestricted free agents to sign elsewhere to help the team's quest for 2019 compensatory picks.

What's unclear is where he will be playing next, though signs Tuesday night increasingly pointed to Detroit, which had been thought to be Willson's favored destination if he couldn't remain in Seattle since he is from nearby LaSalle, Ontario. "I'll let him tell you where that will be".

Willson provides the Seahawks with some much-needed experience at the position. To everyone involved in the Seahawks organization from my boys in the EQ room, to the food services, strength coaches, PR, and the entire 3rd floor of the VMAC thank you.

"Most importantly thank you to all my brothers and teammates". All I can say is thank you....

"And to the 12s!" "I'm really thankful for them blessing me with an opportunity to play".

He signed off simply, Luke. He graded out as the 43rd tight end overall, out of 71 qualifying players.

Drafted out of Rice in the fifth round in the 2013 NFL Draft, Willson appeared in 72 games over the course of five seasons with the Seahawks. But as one might expect for a 26- and 27-year-old tight end who's a firm No. 2 behind a newly arriving superstar, Willson wasn't quite given the chance to reach his full potential.

But the Seahawks also recently signed free agent TE Ed Dickson and still has Nick Vannett and Tyrone Swoopes on the roster.
