Seahawks Claim WR Raymond Webber Off Waivers; Release Three

The Seahawks set all kinds of world records the last couple of seasons (not really) in terms of roster churn, and it looks like that churn has started anew for the 2012 season after a quiet couple of weeks leading up to the Draft.

Webber is a 2nd year receiver out of Arkansas Pine-Bluff that received a $17,500 signing bonus from the Buccaneers last season as an undrafted free agent (meaning - he was highly sought after). The Seahawks had apparently expressed interest in the 6'3 220 pound receiver, but couldn't match the Bucs' bonus numbers after offering large parts of their bonus allotment to Doug Baldwin and Ricardo Lockette (who are still both with the team, by the way). Webber sat out last year with a hamstring injury and was recently released by Tampa.

Baptiste, Graves and Hoffman were all developmental or depth type players that were around last year on the Seahawks practice squad or with the team during the offseason.
