Seahawks sign CB Trovon Reed, claim TE Kyle Carter off waivers

NFL: Preseason-Seattle Seahawks at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks made their two other corresponding roster moves official Friday morning, bringing back cornerback Trovon Reed and claiming tight end Kyle Carter off waivers from the New York Giants.

Reed is back with the Seahawks for the fourth time in his four year career, after having spent time with the team during the 2015 offseason, as well as stints on the practice squad in 2015 and 2017. Reed’s only action in the regular season came during a six game stint with the San Diego Chargers in 2016.

Seattle needed to add a cornerback to their training camp roster, as veteran Dontae Johnson is still a couple weeks away from returning to action after breaking his foot in the offseason. Sophomore Mike Tyson, who was converting to cornerback from safety last season, returned to safety yesterday and it sounds as though that’s where he’ll be for the foreseeable future.

Carter comes to the Seahawks after being waived by the Giants on Wednesday morning, having been claimed off waivers previously by New York, from the Minnesota Vikings, where he spent the first two seasons of his career.

Like at cornerback, Seattle needed to add numbers to their tight end group after a number of roster moves yesterday. Both Ed Dickson and Clayton Wilson were placed on PUP to open camp, leaving the Seahawks with six tight ends, after signing two on Thursday and claiming Carter on Friday.

For now, both Reed and Carter are in Seattle to help fill out a roster that’s fairly banged up to open training camp. However, like any Pete Carroll coached team, they’ll have every opportunity to impress and stick on the roster even after the injured tight ends and cornerbacks return.
