Seahawks add defensive tackle depth on future contract

It hasn’t even been a week since the Seattle Seahawks lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, however, they have managed to stay in the news cycle. Friday has been no different, with reports emerging Friday morning that the Hawks had spoken to former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn about the open offensive coordinator role, and on Friday afternoon Seattle announced that it had added one more player to the 2021 roster.

That brings the total number of players signed to future contracts to 13, with the team having announced the signing of 12 players to future contracts earlier in the week.

For those curious, Myles Adams is a defensive tackle out of Rice who went undrafted last spring before signing with the Carolina Panthers. He did not make the 53 man roster out of training camp, and was then signed to the practice squad of the Panthers for a few weeks before being released. He was unsigned until December 3, at which time he was added to the Seattle practice squad before being released on December 29 prior to the Week 17 season finale.

This addition now puts the Seahawks at 47 players under contract for the 2021 season, a number that does not include either of the defensive tackles who are unsigned but under team control in restricted free agent Poona Ford or exclusive rights free agent Bryan Mone.
