According to Alex Marvez of, the Seattle Seahawks are going to bring in former Cincinnati Bengals LT Levi Jones for a visit.


Levi Jones was released by the Bengals recently after drafting LT Andre Smith. Jones could turn out to be the replacement for RT Sean Locklear, when he moves over to LT following the retirement of Walter Jones.


The Seahawks decided to pass on OT like Eugene Monroe and Andre Smith and drafted LB Aaron Curry fourth overall. So, Jones would be a better fit for RT talent-wise.


I don’t see him being the LT because of Sean Locklear and his huge contract, and as Jim Mora has said that Locklear will move to LT when Walter Jones retires.


Levi Jones, because he has been on the market for a while, won’t have a huge price tag. Maybe the Seahawks are will offer him a four year contract if he’s going to be the future RT.


If the Seahawks sign Jones, look for Mansfield Wrotto or one of the other backup offensive linemen to be cut.


This would be a great addition for the Seahawks. Knowing their injury problems they can never have too many talented offensive linemen.
