WSU safety Deone Bucannon visiting Seahawks this week, according to report

The Seahawks will get back to work on Monday when the team begins its off-season workout program in Renton. It’s technically voluntary, but you know what that means. These aren’t sessions open to the media or public, but the the team will be there, beginning the work of defending its Super Bowl  title.

Also there on Monday, according to a NationalFootballPost.com report, will be Washington State safety Deone Bucannon.

Bucannon has seen his stock rise since the end of the season, generally regarded as a second-round or third-rounder pick — I wrote this about him last month. And he is an obviously intriguing option as a backup safety, something the team could use with Chris Maragos having signed with the Eagles.

As the NFP story states, Bucannon has a lot of visits, so the Seahawks are hardly alone in their interest — in fact, that story seems to state that Bucannon will visit the Seahawks Monday and Tuesday and then fly to Philadelphia to visit the Eagles Tuesday and Wednesday. Long day on Tuesday.

Teams can bring in 30 players for visits, though there also are exceptions for local players allowing teams to bring in more (full rules here).

NFL.com, by the way, has a list it is updating continually of players making pre-draft visits.
