WILL TUKUAFU RUMORS & GOSSIP

Seattle getting value out of FB/DL Will Tukuafu

RENTON, Wash. (AP) Will Tukuafu won't admit to having a favorite position. Just whichever one gets him on the field. When the Seattle Seahawks signed Tukuafu at midseason, it was for the sole purpose of being a fullback.

Seattle Seahawks sign massive former 49ers fullback to bolster depleted backfield

A few days ago we learned that the Seattle Seahawks placed injured fullback Derrick Coleman on injured reserve after he broke his foot during warmups against the St Louis Rams. Running back Robert Turbin has been filling in for him but that’s not an ideal solution.
