So much for that. A day after visiting with the Seahawks, Canadian Football League standout pass rusher Tristan Okpalaugo has signed with the Cardinals.

Okpalaugo went undrafted out of Fresno State in the 2013 Draft, and has previously spent some time on a few NFL clubs, including the Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys. He's 6'5, 245, and ran a 4.74 40 at his pro day with a 32-inch vert.
The Seahawks may miss out on a potential gem here, but have been active in scouting the talent north of the border. Seattle has already signed two CFL players this offseason in WR Jeff Fuller (story here) and RB Cameron Marshall (story). These are the types of players that may or may not catch on with the team, but should offer some good competition in camps this summer at least.
