Predator Returns To NFL: Patrick Chukwurah Signs With Seahawks

Former Denver Broncos linebacker Patrick Chuwurah is back in the NFL for the first time since December, 2008 after signing a deal with the Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks needed a pass rusher after Chris Clemons tore his ACL against the Redskins on Sunday. Patrick Chukwurah has been looking for a job in the NFL for over 4 years. It was a match made in heaven!

Chuckwurah, the former Broncos linebacker and special teams ace, signed a contract with the Seahawks Tuesday night to take Clemons' spot on the roster. He beat out a trio of bigger named defenders including Ray Edwards, Aaron Maybin and Travis LaBoy.

Chukwurah's best season in the NFL came in 2006 with the Broncos when he totaled 4.5 sacks. He was drafted in the 5th round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings and spent 2 seasons with the purple before spending 3+ seasons with the Broncos. Chukwurah last played in the NFL late in the 2008 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Chukwurah led the UFL in sacks two straight seasons before becoming a personal trainer in hopes of finding a way back to the NFL.

Nicknamed 'Predator' because of the dreads that flowed from inside his helmet, Chuwurah was a beast on the field and always one of my personal favorites.

Welcome back to the NFL, Chukky!
