Seahawks sign G/C Jason Spitz

Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE

The Seahawks have signed G/C Jason Spitz, which fills out their roster to 53 after they released DT D'Anthony Smith on Tuesday. Spitz was a third-round pick by John Schneider's Packers back in 2006 out of Louisville, and has started 47 games in his career.

Spitz' addition makes Tom Cable's unit ten men strong, and the 30-year old veteran adds some depth on the interior offensive line. The first question the comes to my mind is whether or not Max Unger's vaguely defined arm injury is worse than the team is letting on - Pete Carroll mentioned last week that Unger's arm was bothering him, but the All-Pro center hasn't appeared on any injury reports so it's just a speculative reason for his signing.

Rather, with Breno Giacomini 'banged up' and Paul McQuistan playing out of position and at a relatively lower level at tackle, the Seahawks may look to move Alvin Bailey and Michael Bowie up the depth charts at both tackle positions, meaning the depth on the interior would need some help. We shall see. Odds are that Spitz is a very short term signing, regardless.
