Free-agent linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba visited the Detroit Lions on Wednesday and met with the Seattle Seahawks last Thursday and Friday as he works to land a job before training camps open.
Ekejiuba was surprisingly released earlier this month by the Oakland Raiders and is considered a standout performer on special teams with 24 tackles over the last two seasons. The Raiders thought enough of him to sign him to a $5.4 million, three-year contract entering last season. He collected nearly half of it -- $2.45 million – and is now in demand.
According to a league source, Ekejiuba is also drawing interest from the Cleveland Browns, who open training camp on Friday. Stay tuned to see where he lands.
