Seahawks reportedly re-sign OG Jordan Simmons, OT Cedric Ogbuehi
The Seahawks’ 2021 offensive line looks to essentially be set.
Simmons is coming back on a one-year deal, Henderson reported Wednesday morning. Terms of Ogbuehi’s contract have not be reported.
Both players will be returning to depth roles for the Seahawks. Simmons, who started six games in 2020, and will slot behind starters Damien Lewis and the recently acquired Gabe Jackson. Ogbeuhi, who started four games in place of Brandon Shell at right tackle last year, will be behind Shell and Duane Brown.
The 6-foot-4, 339-pound Simmons is a 26-year-old USC product entering his fourth NFL season, all with Seattle. He initially signed with the Raiders out of college as an undrafted free agent.
Ogbuehi, 28, was a first-round selection by the Cincinnati Bengals out of Texas A&M in 2015. The 6-5, 308-pounder spent four years with Cincinnati and one with Jacksonville before joining Seattle in free agency in 2020.
The Seahawks added Jackson to replace the retired Mike Iupati and re-signed center Ethan Pocic earlier in free agency to solidify their starting O-line.
