Seahawks sign local product Justin Veltung
By Brady Henderson
The Seahawks announced Thursday the signing of wide receiver Justin Veltung, a Puyallup native who went undrafted out of Idaho and recently attended Seattle’s rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.
Veltung finished his four-year career at Idaho with 62 receptions for 901 yards and eight touchdowns, with all of those scores coming during his sophomore season. He left as the program’s all-time leader in kickoff returns (78) and kickoff return yards (1,743). His college resume also includes four return touchdowns, two apiece on punts and kickoffs.
Veltung attended Puyallup High School, where he was a first-team all-South Puget Sound League selection as as senior in 2008.
