NFL Free Agency got underway on Thursday and the Seattle Seahawks also got involved in the fun, trying to sure up that offensive line. Seattle went out and signed former number-two overall pick Luke Joeckel.

Joeckel spent the first four years of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars where he played guard. The deal, is a one year, $8 million contract. The Seahawks offensive line graded out as the worst in all of football last season, and the deal for the veteran is a low-risk, high reward kind of deal that could benefit both Joeckel and Seattle.
