The Seattle Seahawks have no shortage of interior offensive linemen on the roster, with a dozen names already set to battle for spots during the offseason. However, no matter how many offensive linemen the Seahawks may have on the roster, it appears as though there is always room for one more.

Kahlil McKenzie was a sixth round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2018, but was waived on the eve of the season last August. After clearing waivers he then spent the season on the practice squad of the Seahawks, before signing with the DC Defenders of the XFL. As noted in the tweet from Field Yates, Kahlil is the son of Reggie McKenzie, who was a long time front office executive of the Green Bay Packers from the early nineties through 2011. With the Packers McKenzie, of course, worked on the same staff as John Schneider for eleven seasons.

In any case, welcome back to Seattle, Kahlil, where it appears there will be no shortage of competition on the interior offensive line for playing time.
