SEATTLE -- With offensive line one of their biggest priorities in 2017, the Seahawks are signing free agent tackle Luke Joeckel to a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.
ESPN's Adam Schefter says the deal is worth up to $8 million. That's more than what the Seahawks paid its entire offensive line last season.
Joeckel was the No. 2 overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013 and has played his entire career for the Jags. His head coach was Gus Bradley, the Seahawks' former defensive coordinator.
Joeckel bounced around the offensive line while in Jacksonville, playing on both sides of the line at tackle and at left guard.
Injuries have been a problem for Joeckel. He missed 11 games in his rookie season with an ankle injury and 12 games last year following knee surgery.
