Seahawks Elevate LB Joshua Onujiogu From Practice Squad

The Seahawks elevated rookie outside linebacker Joshua Onujiogu from the practice squad for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.


The Seahawks elevated outside linebacker Joshua Onujiogu from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game in Arizona, setting the undrafted rookie out of Division III Framingham State to make his NFL debut.

Onujiogu initially made the 53-man roster following a strong training camp and preseason that included a sack in Seattle's preseason finale at Dallas. A day later he was waived, however, as the Seahawks needed space on the roster having claimed two players off waivers. Onujiogu then signed to the practice squad.

Onujiogu, the 2019 and 2021 MASCAC Defensive Player of the Year, earned All-New England Honors as a senior after leading the Rams with 68 tackles, including 25 for a loss, and 13.5 sacks. In his career, Onujiogu recorded 36 sacks, 228 tackles and 67 tackles for loss in 47 career games. He'll give the Seahawks extra outside linebacker depth with Darrell Taylor sidelined by a groin injury.
