The Seahawks have re-signed tight end Chase Coffman about a week after releasing him. The 6'6, 250 pound "move" style tight end may come as a little bit of depth as Luke Willson deals with a rib injury. Seattle has not yet announced a corresponding move.
Seattle now has four tight ends on their active roster as Coffman joins Luke Willson, Cooper Helfet, and Anthony McCoy.
Coffman was a third-round pick out of Missouri after a highly decorated college career in which he caught an astounding 246 catches and 30 touchdowns while winning the Mackey Award that year, awarded to the nation's top tight end. However, he failed to really break out at the next level. He's bounced around the league since 2009, spending time with the Bengals, Falcons, and Titans. From various reports, he's a highly skilled catcher with great hands, but may not provide a whole lot in the blocking game.
The Seahawks also officially announced the signing of Bryce Brown and placed Thomas Rawls on the injured reserve. They also released running back DuJuan Harris, receiver B.J. Daniels and safety Akeem Davis while re-activating Brock Coyle from the IR-Boomerang. It looks like there's one spot left open on the roster.
