Robert Nkemdiche finds new home in the NFL after missing 2020 season
Robert Nkemdiche is back in the NFL.
The former Ole Miss standout and first-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in the 2016 NFL Draft will be returning to the NFC West but he will be suiting up for a new franchise in 2021.
The Seahawks announced the signing of Nkemdiche on Thursday. During his three seasons in Arizona, Nkemdiche appeared in 29 games and made six starts.
Nkemdiche missed all of the 2020 season and appeared in just two games for the Dolphins during the 2019 NFL season after suffering a knee injury but the Seattle Seahawks are giving the former Rebel lineman another opportunity to earn a living in the NFL.
One of the star recruits of the Hugh Freeze era in Oxford, Nkemdiche was the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2013 recruiting cycle.
