NFL Free Agents 2012: Seahawks' Target Jacob Tamme Signs in Denver

The Seahawks hosted free agent tight end Jacob Tamme last week in the hopes of signing the veteran as a replacement for recently departed John Carlson. Tamme made a name for himself in the NFL in 2010 when Dallas Clark went out with an injury. Catching passes from Peyton Manning, the Kentucky Wildcat, he reeled in 67 passes for 631 yards and four touchdowns in 8 starts.

The Seahawks were looking to bolster their tight end corps and have also recently hosted veteran TE Visanthe Shiancoe. The Hawks heavily feature two tight end sets in their offense and apparently aren't satisfied with their depth at the position. Soon to be 3rd year player Anthony McCoy was 2nd on the depth chart last year behind Zach Miller, but struggled catching the football, and 3rd on the depth chart is Cameron Morrah, a former 7th round pick that sat out the first six weeks of 2011 on the PUP list before breaking into the lineup.

Either way - tight end appears to be a target position the Seahawks are looking to upgrade so with Tamme now off the market the front office will have to look elsewhere.
