The four teams in the NFC West have each added a player from the International Player Pathway to their practice squads for 2021, the NFL announced Tuesday.

Linebacker Aaron Donkor of Germany joins the Seattle Seahawks, offensive lineman Alfredo Gutierrez of Mexico joins the San Francisco 49ers, offensive lineman Max Pircher of Italy joins the Los Angeles Rams and tight end Bernhard Seikovits of Austria joins the Arizona Cardinals.

Teams will carry the players on the roster until the end of training camp. They are then eligible for an international player practice squad exemption, granting each club an extra practice squad member who is ineligible to be activated during the 2021 season.

The four players worked out with NFL players and draft hopefuls this winter at IMG Academy in Florida.

The NFC West was chosen in a random draw. It is the fifth division to participate in the program since its inception in 2017.
