The Seahawks added Luke Willson to their 53-man roster Wednesday, signing the veteran tight end off the practice squad. Cornerback Jayson Stanley was placed on injured reserve to make room on the roster.

Willson, who spent his first five seasons with the Seahawks, returned to Seattle midway through last season, then re-signed this year, appearing in five games before being released. After three games in Baltimore, Willson returned to the Seahawks as a practice squad signing last month.

Stanley started this season on Seattle's practice squad, then was elevated twice for games before eventually being signed to the 53-man roster. He appeared in eight games, playing primarily on special teams before injuring his hamstring in Seattle's week 16 win over the Rams.
