Leonard gets NFL tryout


POSTED: Saturday, May 02, 2009

Former Hawaii linebacker Adam Leonard is getting a shot with his hometown team this weekend.

Leonard is trying out with the Seattle Seahawks at the team's mini-camp, which opened yesterday.

Leonard had a workout with the Seahawks prior to the NFL Draft, but was not selected last weekend. He finished his UH career with 316 tackles and was named to the All-Western Athletic Conference first team last season.

Hawaii Prep graduate Max Unger, the Seahawks' second-round draft pick, is also in mini-camp.

Saint Louis graduate and former Colorado defensive lineman Vaka Manupuna signed a free-agent contract with the Washington Redskins.

Former UH linebacker Solomon Elimimian and safety Erik Robinson are trying out for the Buffalo Bills.
