Luani signed a contract with the Seahawks on Saturday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. Luani was traded to the Seahawks early in September prior to being waived by the team in the wake of Week 1. The team is brining him back to provide depth to the secondary as the prepare to face off against the Bears on Monday.
The Seahawks waived Luani on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Luani was let go to free up a roster spot for wideout Keenan Reynolds, who was activated to provide depth while Doug Baldwin (knee) sits out. The 24-year-old made 18 tackles for the Raiders in 2017.
The Raiders selected Luani in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 221st overall. Luani is a former soccer player who showed a bit of a center fielder skill set at Washington State, intercepting four passes each of the last two years. Oakland is set at safety, so he'll try to make a special teams impact.
