Free agent offensive tackle Ulrick John is planning to visit the Seattle Seahawks on Friday this week, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Most recently a backup offensive lineman for the New England Patriots, John was a 2014 seventh round pick out of Georgia State selected by the Indianapolis Colts (and is confusingly listed as John Ulrick on the NFL.com draft tracker for that year).
After being waived by the Colts in September 2015, John played with the Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals, and Green Bay Packers before catching on with the Patriots in 2018. He’s appeared in 10 games in his five-year career, with his only three starts coming in 2016 during his time with the Cardinals. He signed a one-year contract with New England last year for $745,000.
With all three of those starts on the right side of the line, and with John primarily backing up Patriots right tackle Marcus Cannon in 2018, a signing would likely mean additional competition with Jamarco Jones and Germain Ifedi at right tackle spot for the Seahawks.
