Seahawks sign Kona Schwenke, Julius Warmsley

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks have signed two players to their 90-man roster, inking offensive lineman Kona Schwenke and defensive lineman Julius Warmsley to deals with the team.

Warmsley was cut prior to last week's minicamp, but only spent a few days off the roster, apparently impressing coaches enough to earn a spot back on the line. He was with Seattle part of last season on the practice squad and then the practice squad injured reserve. He's a 6'2, 296 pounder that played college ball at Tulane. He originally signed in Houston but then landed in Seattle, and in his final year at Tulane, he racked up 46 tackles (31 solo), including 18.5 tackles for a loss and 6.0 sacks.

Kona Schwenke is another one of Seattle's defensive-line-to-offensive-line projects, and Tom Cable singled him out on Sunday as one of the impressive players in camp. He was a defensive lineman for the Fighting Irish and spent time with the Chiefs, Jets, Patriots, and Raiders last year before landing a tryout on the offensive line in Seattle. He's listed at 6'4, 297 pounds.

For those of you on Kasen Williams watch: nothing to report, just yet. The Seahawks could still sign him as the offseason goes on, and they likely told him to stay in shape and be ready in case they need to add some depth at the position. After Carroll said they would "try to get him back" on Sunday, my guess is he'll remain on their speed dial.
