Seattle Seahawks defensive end Luke Willman is preparing to be ready to join the Seattle Seahawks’ team for their game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, a source told Bleacher Update.
Willson had previously stated that he had “no problem” playing with his former team, the Denver Broncos, but has changed his tune after the team’s recent loss to the New York Giants.
Willson, who was named the Pro Football Focus Defensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career in Week 4, was asked whether he was interested in joining the Seahawks after the loss to New York.
“Yeah, absolutely,” Willson responded.
“We’re definitely going to have a chance to play together, and I think it’s going to be a great opportunity.
We have a lot of great players, a lot more than what we had before, so I think I’m excited about it.”
He added that he “wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but after what happened last year, I definitely am.”
Willson’s departure from the Broncos left the door open for defensive end Julius Peppers to move into the starting lineup alongside him.
Will the Seahawks have enough depth at the position to allow Peppers and Willson to play alongside each other?
Will there be enough of a role for Peppers as a pass rusher to fill a need that has been sorely missed by the team this season?
Will the offensive line continue to struggle, especially when Peppers isn’t on the field?
Will Willson be ready for his new teammates in Seattle?
