The Seattle Seahawks are considering bringing back veteran tight end Luke Wilson, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport.
Wilson, 31, is currently a free agent. He has spent the majority of his career in Seattle, including a short stint with the Seahawks during the 2020 season. It appears a reunion of sorts could be in the works.
Rapoport reported Monday afternoon that the Seahawks are hosting Wilson on a visit later this week. Wilson knows everything about Seattle already, though. Seven years of his professional career have come with the Seahawks. An eighth year appears to be in the works.
“Another potential reunion: Veteran TE Luke Willson is set to visit the #Seahawks later this week, source said,” Rapoport reported via Twitter. “Originally a Seattle 5th round pick, Willson also spent some time with them last year.”

Luke Wilson hasn’t been a full-time contributor since the 2018 season. All-in-all, the veteran tight end has 111 catches for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns over his career.
The Seahawks, meanwhile, just cut their roster down to 80 players on Monday. They sent two players – including linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven – to the injured reserve and waived three others. If they go out and add Wilson, they’ll have to waive an additional player to keep the roster at 80 players.
Keep an eye out here. It sounds like a Seahawks-Wilson reunion could happen by the end of the week.
