Seahawks Sign Offensive Tackles Raiqwon O'Neal & McClendon Curtis, Place Abraham Lucas On IR

The Seahawks added offensive line depth, signing a pair of rookies off of other teams’ practice squads.


The Seahawks added offensive line depth to their roster on Wednesday, signing a pair of undrafted rookies to their 53-man roster.

Tackle Raiqwon O'Neal was signed off Tampa Bay's practice squad, while McClendon Curtis was signed off Las Vegas' practice squad.

Abraham Lucas, who left Seattle's Week 1 game with a knee injury, was placed on injured reserve, meaning he will miss at least four games before he is eligible to return.

O'Neal, who went undrafted out of UCLA, started all 13 games at left tackle last season. Prior to transferring to UCLA, Smith played at Rutgers where he started 21 games at left tackle over three seasons.

Curtis, who signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee-Chattanooga, started 38 games in his college career, primarily playing right guard but also playing left tackle and left guard.

With Lucas now going to IR and with Charles Cross dealing with a toe injury that knocked him out of Sunday's game, the Seahawks have been busy adding tackle help this week, signing veteran Jason Peters and Greg Eiland to their practice squad Tuesday before adding Curtis and O'Neal Wednesday.

The Seahawks and Lions face off on Sunday, Sept. 17, 2023 at Ford Field. Kickoff is set for 10:00 a.m. PT. Take a look back through history at the Seahawks' matchups against the Lions.
