Seahawks sign DT Michael Brooks; release WR Bryan Walters

The Seahawks announced Saturday that they have released receiver Bryan Walters and signed defensive tackle Michael Brooks off of their practice squad.

The move was no-doubt made to bolster defensive line depth with both DE Red Bryant (concussion) and DT Jordan Hills (biceps) out with injuries. Brooks, an undrafted rookie out of East Carolina, originally signed with Detroit following the draft, then came to Seattle in May after being released by the Lions. He was released after training camp, and has since been on and off of Seattle’s practice squad several times this season.

The release of Walters leaves Seattle with just four receivers on the 53-man roster, which could perhaps be a sign that Percy Harvin is close to coming back.
