The Seahawks have signed another player to a futures contract, this time inking receiver Tyler Slavin to a deal. He becomes the 18th player and the 4th receiver Seattle has signed to a futures deal, joining Antwan Goodley, Deshonn Foxx, and Douglas McNeill at the position, all of whom have been with the team off and on this past season.
Slavin is 6'1, 210 and was with the Seahawks in November when he was signed to the practice squad after being waived by the Rams. He was briefly placed on Seattle's practice squad injured reserve but was released with an injury settlement in December.
He began his college career at Arizona and finished it at New Mexico Highlands. He was with the Rams in training camp and was released before the season. Slavin originally is from Corona, California, and undoubtedly was seen as a high school player by Seahawks coach Pete Carroll when he was at USC.
Here's a Hudl highlight video for Slavin.
