A pair of Kentucky Wildcats are getting their second shot in the NFL.
Linebacker Josh Forrest has signed with the Seattle Seahawks. A sixth round draft pick in 2016, Forrest played in ten games for the L.A. Rams in 2016. Last year he appeared in a pair of games for the Seahawks before an injury sidelined him for the rest of the season. He has another former Wildcat with him in Seattle, wide receiver Kayaune Ross.
Offensive tackle Kyle Meadows didn’t do enough to last in Green Bay. Instead of being a Packer, the undrafted free agent has been signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers. At some point he’ll likely block Farrington Huguenin, who spent last season playing linebacker on the Steelers’ practice squad.
The signings of Meadows and Forrest now give Kentucky 15 players on NFL preseason rosters.
