The Seattle Seahawks continued to add to their depleted offensive line on Wednesday, signing offensive tackle Brian Wallace, just a day after adding Landon Turner. Wallace was worked out by the Seahawks just a few weeks ago. Now, with an added need at tackle, he joins the roster.

Turner, a direct replacement for Demetrius Knox, who was placed on injured reserve, will be thrown into the mix along the interior. Wallace will help to make up the numbers on the outside, with George Fant still out injured. An extra body was needed at tackle even more so with the knowledge that Elijah Nkansah has been getting reps in Fant’s jumbo tight end spot, as well.

Wallace went undrafted in this spring’s draft, and signed with Washington as a UDFA. He will bring tremendous size to a team, and scheme, that values it highly:

Harvey was signed by Seattle as a UDFA following the 2019 NFL Draft out of Arizona State, where he spent his first three years as a wide receiver before converting to safety. As noted by The Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta, Harvey was simply unable to get healthy during his time with the Seahawks.
