Chris Worley is joining a new NFL team.

The Seattle Seahawks signed the former Ohio State linebacker on Tuesday, one week after he was waived by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Worley, who played for the Buckeyes from 2013-17, signed with the Bengals last season as an undrafted free agent and spent the majority of the season on their practice squad before appearing in their final two games of the year and recording two tackles in their regular-season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He becomes the fourth former Ohio State player on the Seahawks' roster, joining former Buckeye teammates Jamarco Jones, Demetrius Knox and Nick Vannett. The Seahawks are currently tied with the Dolphins for the third-most Ohio State players in the NFL, behind the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints, who each have five.
