Someone is getting a second “Chance” with the Seattle Seahawks.
After opting out of playing for the 2020 NFL Season due to the coronavirus pandemic and being released by the Seahawks in February, guard Chance Warmack is visiting with the team this week, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
“The team is keeping the door open with a physical and potential re-signing for the 29-year-old,” Fowler says.
Warmack, the brother of former Oregon Ducks offensive lineman Dallas Warmack, won three championship titles in four years at Alabama. He was selected 10th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans.
He started 46 games over three seasons in Tennessee, before going on Injured Reserve two games into the 2016 NFL season due to a hand injury. Warmack signed as a free agent with the Eagles during the 2017-18 season and appeared in 20 games. After taking a year off from football, Warmack signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks last season.
It appears the 29-year-old still has an interest in restarting his career as a pro. With Mike Iupati now retired, the Seahawks are expected to lean on Damien Lewis to start at guard. Seattle also made a trade to add veteran guard Gabe Jackson from the Raiders this offseason who has played right guard the last five years and left side during his first two.
At the core of Pete Carroll’s philosophy is “always compete,” which Warmack will do if he decides to reunite with Seattle. Jordan Simmons, Phil Haynes and Jamarco Jones will also be battling for roster spots behind Jackson and Lewis.
