Seattle Seahawks Sign Three More

With three open roster spots, the Seattle Seahawks moved quickly to fill the vacancies and shore up some of the depth issues plaguing them. Dealing with a massive injury list, the Seahawks needed players to fill-in — and fill-in now. With most of the defensive line out due to injuries, the Seahawks added Jay Richardson, a former Houston Texans defensive lineman. They also added wide receiver Ruvell Martin, a casualty of the roster cuts before the season, and offensive lineman Chris White, another former Texan.

The three signings follow the addition of former Houston defensive end Fran Okam. The Seahawks must have been awestruck with the Houston roster over the last two days, adding three different cast-offs from the Texans.

Of the four signings, two players are defensive lineman — taking the spots of Red Bryant and adding depth while Brandon Mebane and Colin Cole are out — one offensive lineman — an effort to replace Ben Hamilton and shore up the depth that’s lacking — and a wide receiver — to fill-in for the injured Golden Tate. Nine weeks into the season and the Seahawks are so plagued by injury that they’re scrambling to quickly fill-in the blanks.
