The Seattle Seahawks picked up a cornerback in the NFL Draft and have let one go in free agency.

On Wednesday the Washington Football Team announced that they’ve signed Linden Stephens, who spent last season in Seattle. Terms weren’t disclosed but these types of signings are usually one year for not a whole lot of money.

Stephens played in 13 games for the Seahawks, with the overwhelming majority of his snap counts on special teams, and he was inactive in the team’s playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams. In his limited playing time he recorded three solo tackles and otherwise was not noticeable on the field. Stephens only had 35 defensive snaps and 25 of them were against the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.

Seattle’s cornerback depth currently consists of Ahkello Witherspoon, Tre Flowers, DJ Reed, fourth-round draft pick Tre Brown, Pierre Desir, Ugo Amadi, Gavin Heslop, Jordan Miller, Damarious Randall, and maybe Marquise Blair if he stays at slot corner or gets moved back to safety.
