As fans of the Seattle Seahawks await the preseason opener for the team a week from Saturday, news on former members of the team continues to trickle in. Thursday reports emerged that the Las Vegas Raiders were meeting with K.J. Wright, who began his career for the Hawks playing for current Raiders defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.
Friday the Raiders announced that they had signed a different former Seahawks player.

Bo Scarbrough has had two separate stints with Seattle. The first time came at the end of the 2018 season when the Hawks poached him off the practice squad of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He then remained with the team through training camp in 2019, but after failing to make it past roster cuts he found himself a member of the Detroit Lions. In Detroit he played alongside former Seahawks return specialist J.D. McKissic under the direction of former Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
Scarbrough returned to the Hawks in 2020, signing to the practice squad in November and seeing action the next week due to a myriad of injuries at the position. However, just six carries into his encore performance for Seattle he suffered a torn hamstring and spent the remainder of the year on injured reserve.
