Hawks Come to Terms with FA OL Frank Omiyale

The Seahawks today came to terms with free agent offensive lineman Frank Omiyale.

Originally selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the fifth round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Tennessee Tech, the 6-foot-4, 315-pound Omiyale appeared in one game over two seasons with the Falcons before he was waived and claimed by the Carolina Panthers. Omiyale started one of 10 games over two seasons with the Panthers.

Signed to a four-year, $12.5 million contract by the Bears on February 28, 2009, Omiyale started 28 of 32 games over the 2009 and 2010, including some games at left tackle, before playing in primarily a reserve role in 2011.

Released by the Bears on March 1st, Omiyale paid a free agent visit to the Seahawks prior to the start of the 2012 league year.
