NFL journey continues: Max Pircher has a new club

South Tyrol's first NFL player, Max Pircher from Brixen, will also be under contract in the world's most important sports league next season. However, with a new employer.

The Seattle Seahawks announced Max Pircher as a new signing on Tuesday. After a season with the Detroit Lions, he is moving back to the US West Coast, where he was already employed by the Los Angeles Rams. With these, Pircher won the Super Bowl in 2022 - and was the first player from Italy to do so.

However: Pircher is still waiting for his first competitive game in the NFL. In the past three years, both in Los Angeles and in Detroit, he benefited from the special status of an international player, with whom he was always part of the training group of the NFL teams even though he was not on the championship squad.

Now Pircher is making a new attempt in Seattle to make a breakthrough in the Olympus of American football. The 2013-year-old South Tyrolean will wear number 24 in the future for the 69 Super Bowl champions, who were unable to qualify for the playoffs last season.
