Report: Hawks to sign DE Patrick Chukwurah

According to the league’s web site, the Seahawks will sign defensive end Patrick Chukwurah to boost the team’s depth at defensive end, with starter Chris Clemons done for the year.

The 33-year-old last played in the NFL with Tampa Bay in 2008, so Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and defensive line coach Todd Wash, who both worked as defensive assistants for the Bucs, have some familiarity with his skill set. Since then, Chukwurah spent two seasons in the United Football League.

According to the report, the Seahawks also worked out Aaron Maybin, Travis LaBoy and Ray Edwards.
