The Seahawks will be welcoming a key piece of their defense back to practice, with Pro-Bowl cornerback Riq Woolen passing his physical Sunday, clearing the way for him to come off the physically unable to perform list.
The Seahawks also made one addition to the roster, signing nose tackle Roderick Perry II who was recently with the team before being waived last week.
Woolen, a fifth-round pick in last year's draft who went on to earn Pro-Bowl honors after tying for the NFL lead with six interceptions, was sidelined for the start of training camp due to a knee injury in offseason workouts that led to surgery. When he's back to full speed—players sometimes come off the PUP list in order to participate in walkthroughs first before practicing fully—Woolen will add to an already deep cornerback group that is shaping up to be one of the most competitive position groups in this year's camp.
Perry, who went undrafted out of Illinois in 2022, spent most of last season on Cleveland's practice squad, appearing in two regular season games.
The Seahawks held a practice under the lights at Lumen Field on Friday, August 4, 2023 as part of the Seahawks 2023 Football Fest.
