Seahawks Free Agency Open Thread 8/3/11

For those hoping for fullbacks, well, our FO doesn't seem to take the chase too seriously. The Chiefs nabbed LeRon McClain, the Texans got Lawrence Vickers and while the Seahawks looked at Mike Karney nothing is imminent as we'd rather look at putting TEs in as FB/H-Back types first.

Seahawks have announced a number of cuts and signings and are now at a full 90-man roster.

#Seahawks announce signings of CB Kelly Jennings, LB Michael Johnson, TE Zach Miller, K Jeff Reed, RB Chase Reynolds and DE Jimmy Wilkerson

#Seahawks announce they've released K Wes Byrum, DT Ladi Ajiboye, G Michael Huey, QB Zac Lee and LB Blake Sorenson

Here we go again folks. It's a good time to be alive, isn't it?

-- As we mentioned yesterday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, FB Mike Karney is scheduled to visit the Seahawks today.

-- Former Washington Redskins OLB Chris Wilson worked out for the Seahawks yesterday. No word yet on if he'll be signed. 

-- The Seahawks signed K Jeff Reed, much to the chagrin of many fans. The news was first reported by Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog, and per Mac, Reed made 9 of 10 field goals in the last five games of the season with the 49ers. Jacson will be posting an update on the signing shortly. From what I know of Jacson, it will not be a glowing review. 

-- K Wes Byrum has been released by the Seahawks, per his Twitter account.

-- Brandon Coutu wasn't at practice yesterday, but I haven't heard any official announcement of a release. My guess is that he'd compete in camp with Jeff Reed moving forward, but we'll see. 

-- John Clayton was offering up the idea on Brock and Salk this morning that the Seahawks could have interest in LB Ben Leber, formerly of the Vikings. From the way Clayton worded it, it sounded more like a guess than actual reporting, but something of note, nonetheless.

Anyway, talk, discuss, chew the fat, shoot the breeze, etc.
