Whirlwind days for former Seahawk

By Bill Williamson

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Ryan Seymour was on the Candlestick Park sidelines on Sunday.

When he walked back to the Seattle Seahawks’ locker room, he never imagined he’d be back for the Candlestick Park finale Dec. 23 when the 49ers host Atlanta.

“Crazy business,” Seymour said from the 49ers’ locker room Thursday.

As a member of the Seattle practice squad, the guard accompanied the team to San Francisco last weekend. Sunday, after the 49ers’ 19-17 victory, Seymour flew back to Seattle after the game. Early Monday morning, the 49ers began the process of signing him to their 53-man practice.

“I flew back to Seattle with the team,” Seymour said. “And 24 hours later, I made the same flight back.”

As he gets used to being a 49er, Seymour said he is well aware of all of the recent roster poaching the two teams have done.

“I just look at this as an opportunity with a good franchise,” Seymour said. “I’m looking forward to it.”
