Former Bears Starter Frank Omiyale Visiting Seattle Seahawks Today

The Seahawks are hosting guard Frank Omiyale for a visit as I type this out as a matter of fact. They are able to do this before the official free agent period begins because Omiyale was released by the Bears on March 1st.

Omiyale started 31 games over the past three seasons for Chicago and was originally drafted in the fifth round by the Atlanta Falcons in 2005.

He would likely be signed as a backup at tackle and guard. The other spots are occupied by recent draft choices James Carpenter, Max Unger, Russell Okung, and John Moffitt, as well as veteran Robert Gallery. The Seahawks also already have a swing tackle in Breno Giacamini, who showed glimpses of dominance and began to flourish in Tom Cables scheme after stepping in for an injured Carpenter. No one would argue the still incredibly green offensive line couldn’t use any upgrading or veteran additions though.  They have indicated a big money move for a defensive end and would have more then enough space if they desire to also pursue an upgrade along the offensive line, and then some.

Omiyale played with current offensive line coach/head coach/most important freaking coach on the team Tom Cable with the Atlanta Falcons in 2006 as well; so there’s a familiarity factor there.

If Cable wants him, then sign him, simple as that, in Cable we should entrust the fate of our blocking and who does it without a second thought.
