2016 NFL undrafted free agent tracker: Seahawks edition

New, comments
Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Draft is now over, which means that teams can begin signing undrafted free agents. These signings won't be official until the team announces them, but we'll be tracking rumors and tweets right here.

Remember: Some of these "signings" may end up being rookie camp invites instead, or they may change their mind and sign elsewhere after all. So again, nothing is official until the team says it is.

Regardless, the Seahawks take a lot of pride in their undrafted free agent signing period, and even go so far as to send agents pamphlets which describe in detail why those agents' clients should come play for the Seahawks. As John Boyle pointed out this week, "In six seasons under Carroll and Schneider, the Seahawks have gotten 121 starts and 460 games played out of undrafted free agents who originally signed with Seattle, numbers that rank fifth and sixth, respectively, in the NFL over that time."
