Witherspoon finally gets his wish, finds his way to Seahawks

RENTON, Wash. — Ahkello Witherspoon wanted to have an NFL career in Seattle when he was in college.

It took several seasons and a stint in San Francisco, but Witherspoon finally got his wish when he signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks this offseason.

Witherspoon is expected to win one of the starting jobs in Seattle’s secondary.

Coach Pete Carroll says Witherspoon has the speed, size and length that the Seahawks like.

Witherspoon is one of the few veterans at the Seahawks facility for offseason workouts.

The majority are staying away during the early parts of the offseason program.
