Wareham native Joshua Onujiogu is back with the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks.

Onujiogu cleared waivers on Friday and joined the Seahawks’ practice squad.

The undrafted rookie free agent out of Framingham State had previously signed with the Seahawks in May. After initially making Seattle’s 53-man roster ahead of the NFL-mandated cutdown last week, he was waived hours before the deadline as the Seahawks sought to make room for two new acquisitions.
