After signing their own practice squad players to futures deals last week, the Seahawks have started looking outside their roster for possible 2014 help, adding a signing a pair of former Wisconsin players to futures contract, according to reports.
Tight end Travis Beckum, a third-round pick in 2009, reported his signing himself on Twitter.

UPDATE: The Seahawks have announced the signings of Taylor and Beckum, as well as that of Terrance Parks, a defensive back who went undrafted out of Florida State in 2012. After spending the 2012 season with Kansas City, Parks played in the Canadian Football League with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last season. Perhaps worth noting, the Seahawks have signed a defensive back out of the CFL to a futures contract once before, signing eventual Pro-Bowl cornerback Brandon Browner three years ago.
