LaSalle native Luke Willson will suit up for the Seattle Seahawks for at least one more season.
"I'm pretty fired up," said Willson in a Twitter video message to his fans.
Willson recorded the message in a vehicle on Highway 401 in Ontario and said he was bound for Seattle soon to "make everything official."
The tight-end had been an unrestricted free agent. Multiple reports say he inked a one-year deal worth $3 million.
Willson graduated from Villanova High School in 2009 and played in two consecutive Super Bowls, winning the first in 2014, but losing the second in 2015.
