It was just a matter of days ago that Fields Gulls took a look at the 2018 draft class of the Seattle Seahawks and what the players selected brought to the team. Now, barely days later, the lone member of the draft class who had not been on an NFL roster has agreed to sign with a team.
The #Dolphins are signing ex-#Seahawks LB Shaquem Griffin to a 1-year deal, source said. Some LB depth and special teams help. Colleague @TomPelissero had reported he was in for a visit. Now, he’s sticking around.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 23, 2021
Shaquem Griffin was selected by the Seahawks with the 141st overall pick in the fifth round of the 2018 draft, just a year after the team had taken his twin brother Shaquill in the third round of the 2017 draft. The two had played together at the University of Central Florida after playing at Lakewood High School in their hometown of St. Petersburg. Shaquill, of course, signed a three-year, $40M contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars back in March. Initially reports had the Jaguars also signing Shaquem, but that never came to pass, so now he has agreed to play for the Miami Dolphins just a few hours south on I-95.
