Reports: Seahawks to sign kicker Longwell
JAN 08, 2013 3:40p ET
Well, it took until the playoffs, but Longwell may make his season debut for the Seattle Seahawks in their Sunday playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons, according to multiple reports.
Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka suffered a calf injury in last weekend's playoff victory against the Washington Redskins, and Seattle brought in Longwell and several other kickers for a Tuesday tryout, according to reports from NFL.com and ESPN.com. The reports say Seattle will sign Longwell, a 38-year-old veteran of six seasons with the Vikings and nine with the Packers before that, and then monitor Hauschka in practice this week before deciding whether to activate the player who ranks 13th on the NFL's all-time scoring list.
Longwell's 83.2 percent career field-goal accuracy ranks 14th in NFL history.
