RENTON, Wash. -- A familiar face is heading back to the Seattle Seahawks.

Luke Willson is returning to Seattle, head coach Pete Carroll confirmed in a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

The news comes after the Seahawks agreed to trade tight end Nick Vannett to the Steelers for a fifth-round pick in 2020.

That opened up a spot for Willson, who was with the Seahawks from 2013-2017 before signing with Detroit as a free agent in 2018.
