The Seattle Seahawks signed wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. to add depth to both their pass catching and kick return units on Tuesday.

Shenault, 25, has struggled to breakthrough in the NFL despite being a second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Shenault had two fairly successful seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars with a total of 121 receptions for 1,219 yards and five touchdowns, all of which came as a rookie.But after being traded to the Carolina Panthers in 2022, Shenault was unable to build upon that success on an admittedly bad Panthers team.

"I think Seattle is a good spot because this is going to be a hard-nosed team," Shenault told John Boyle of Seahawks.com. "I play with some aggression and I think that's big."With the NFL making significant changes to the rules for kickoffs for the upcoming season, the need for kick returners will be much higher than in recent seasons. The rule changes – detailed in full here – are designed to increase the number of kick returns while also limiting high speed collisions.
