Maybe the Seattle Seahawks don't feel as comfortable with the return of Walter Jones as they have said publicly.
According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, recently released Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Levi Jones is set to visit Seattle this week.
Jones was released Wednesday by the Bengals after seven seasons. According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, after missing just one game during his first four seasons, Jones has missed 17 during the past three.
Never miss a local story.
Last year Jones suffered a season-ending leg injury against Philadelphia and missed the last six games.
Andre Smith, the No. 6 overall pick in last month's draft, is expected to replace Jones in the Bengals' starting lineup.
The Seahawks have said that their plan to replace Walter Jones if he cannot return from microfracture knee surgery is to move Sean Locklear to left tackle and play Ray Willis at right tackle, but maybe the team is looking for a little more insurance at left tackle? I'll be in Renton on Thursday to watch practice so I'll follow up tomorrow.
