Seahawks Claim OT Jarriel King & DL Al Woods Off Waivers

The Seattle Seahawks are doing some shopping, and waived football players are their targets of interest. The Seahawks found defensive end Leonard Cohen, and now Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times reports that they've added offensive tackle Jarriel King. King was an undrafted rookie on the New York Giants, and has fairly good size. In college with the South Carolina Gamecocks, he played both guard and tackle, and was expected to contend for the Giants starting guard spot before he was released. It's unclear where the Seahawks want him, but he does provide a decent versatile backup option on their roster.

Albert Elias of Elias Sports Management also let us know that the Seahawks also added defensive lineman Al Woods from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Woods was a top-notch talent from the LSU Tigers, but he was regarded as a constant disappointment in almost any place he played. Woods will probably be a backup who will try and give Seattle strength in their front seven depth.
