The Seattle Seahawks were busy over the past 24 hours with two of their many transactions involving former Chiefs. They signed DT Junior Siavii and added OL Lemuel Jeanpierre — and undrafted free agent from South Carolina — to their practice squad.
Siavii (6-5, 315) was with the Dallas Cowboys last season. The former University of Oregon player was a second-round draft choice by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2004, but he played only two seasons before having microfracture knee surgery and sitting out from 2006-08. He goes by Junior because his full name is Saousoalii Poe Siavii, Jr.
I must have been missing something, because I don’t ever remember hearing that Siavii had such a major operation. That should put in perspective a lot of his struggles. Not that he did much in Kansas City before the Chiefs let him go, but it takes a lot for a player in any sport to come back from that surgery and still be effective.
Given the Chiefs total lack of depth along the offensive line, Jeanpierre had to have been in discussion for the practice squad in Kansas City but the team clearly felt better about the potential about Darryl Harris.
