Seahawks sign pair following rookie minicamp
RENTON, Wash. (AP) The Seattle Seahawks have signed linebacker Tyrell Adams and fullback Brandon Cottom following rookie minicamp last weekend.
Seattle announced the signings Tuesday. To clear roster spots, the Seahawks terminated the veteran contract of offensive lineman C.J. Davis and waived offensive guard Nate Isles. Davis was not on an NFL roster last season, while Isles spent the year on Seattle's practice squad.
Cottom was a running back at Purdue, but at 6-foot-2 and 266 pounds fits the role of a fullback in the NFL.
Adams played collegiately at Division II West Georgia and led his team in tackles the last two seasons. He was college teammates with defensive end Tony Slater, who signed with Seattle as an undrafted free agent following the NFL draft.
