It’s been a busy week for the Seattle Seahawks, with a whole lot of roster moves surrounding the second wave of cuts which was due earlier this week. Perhaps the most noteworthy of the moves in the early part of the week came with the Tuesday addition of free agent tight end Luke Willson, only to see Willson turn around and retire on Wednesday.
However, on Thursday the Seahawks took a step to address the lack of depth at the tight end position by adding another free agent tight end.

Ian Bunting will be the fifth healthy tight end on the roster for the Saturday game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The other healthy players at the position include the projected pair at the top of the depth chart in Gerald Everett and Will Dissly, along with Cam Sutton and now Bunting. Colby Parkinson remains on the roster, though his recovery from a broken foot will keep him on the sideline for the foreseeable future.
