Luani played primarily in a special teams role for the Seahawks last season, contributing nine tackles (seven solo) across 12 games.

Seahawks' Shalom Luani: Doubtful for Week 13
Luani (quadriceps) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Luani sustained a quadriceps injury during this week's practice, according to Crabtree, and is trending towards a Week 13 absence.

Seahawks' Shalom Luani: Traded to Seattle
The Raiders traded Luani to the Seahawks on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Between injuries and Earl Thomas' contract holdout, the Seahawks are looking awfully shaky at safety, even after Saturday's minor trade. Luani, a 2017 seventh-round pick, will be reunited with Seahawks defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr., who held the same role in Oakland last season. It's a nice opportunity to stick around on an NFL roster, but Luani probably won't have a big role in the Seattle defense.... See More ... See Less
