Tyvis Powell is a second year player from the Ohio State Buckeyes now in the NFL, but he will be heading back to his home state, Cleveland to play for the Browns. Powell, an undrafted free agent, was waived by the Seattle Seahawks just prior to the postseason. However, being without a team was temporary because shortly after, Powell who is from Bedford, was claimed by the Cleveland Browns off waivers.
The NFL draft of 2016 had some great moments; however, Powell who is a fan favorite of Ohio State sat and waited for his name to be called as each round went by. Powell who plays safety, did not show any remorse and regrouped. He took calls from other teams in the league.
Tyvis Powell then signed with the Seattle Seahawks in the Legion of Boom. In 2016, he did not get much time on the field, but as a Buckeye he was able to get some snaps on special teams. Powell played in eight games in which he gathered three special team tackles, despite being on the active roster for the season.
The Buckeye‘s fans will miss Powell who is heading to Seattle, which is his home state. He hopes to get a spot on this 53-person team. September is a while away but Powell needs to get through the mini-camps and OTAs before he is considered for a spot on the final roster.
