It’s not a great sign for Charles Cross and Abe Lucas’ chances of playing against the Lions on Sunday that the Seahawks have now signed three new offensive tackles since their two starters were injured last week against the Rams. Yesterday, the team announced that they have re-signed Greg Eiland and added 41-year old veteran Jason Peters to their practice squad.
Now we have word Seattle is also signing another tackle off the Buccaneers’ practice squad. According to Greg Auman, the Seahawks are signing undrafted rookie Raiqwon O’Neal.
Seahawks are signing rookie offensive lineman Raiqwon O'Neal off the Bucs' practice squad. Played at Rutgers and UCLA, impressed in preseason but was among Tampa Bay's final cuts.

Like rookie wide receiver Jake Bobo, O’Neal (6-foot-4, 305 pounds) played his college ball at elsewhere and then transferred to play under Chip Kelly at UCLA last season. He started 13 games at left tackle.
There’s no word yet if O’Neal is being signed to Seattle’s practice squad or their active roster.
