Seahawks bring back former Washington State LB Kache Palacio

The Seahawks have re-signed linebacker Kache Palacio, a former Washington State Cougar and 2016 undrafted free agent who spent time on Seattle’s practice squad as a rookie.

The move was listed on the NFL transaction report on Monday, a day before Seattle begins its offseason workout program.

Palacio, listed at 6 feet 1 and 237 pounds, had a nice preseason with the Seahawks last year, recording 16 tackles and a forced fumble. But he was waived before Week 1 when the team trimmed its roster to 53. He spent much of the season on Seattle’s practice squad and finished the year on the practice-squad injured reserve; his injury wasn’t disclosed.

Looking ahead, Palacio will face what seems like an uphill battle to make the Seahawks’ roster given all the moves they’ve made there this offseason. Seattle signed three other linebackers – Arthur Brown, Michael Wilhoite and Terence Garvin – and could still bring back Michael Morgan, an unrestricted free agent who started last season alongside Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright. Dewey McDonald, Kevin Pierre-Louis and Ronald Powell are the other linebackers on Seattle’s roster.

The Seahawks’ website lists 77 players on their roster. That includes tackle Garry Gilliam, a restricted free agent who has yet to sign his RFA tender. Rosters expand from 53 to 90 during the offseason. The unoccupied spots will be filled with draft picks and undrafted free agents.
