Seahawks Sign FB Brandon Cottom, LB Tyrell Adams; Part Ways With OL Nate Isles, C.J. Davis

Both signees took part in the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

On Monday, the Seahawks added two players who participated in this past weekend's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, signing offensive guard Kona Schwenke and defensive end Julius Warmsley.

Today, the team tacked on two more rookie minicamp tryouts in Brandon Cottom, a 6-foot-2, 262-pound running back out of Purdue, and Tyrell Adams, a 6-foot-2, 228-pound linebacker from West Georgia.

"I made it official! I officially signed with the Seattle Seahawks organization! #blessed #Seahawks" Cottom captioned with a Twitter photo showing him inking his deal with Seattle.

Cottom was listed as a fullback during the team's three-day camp and played an active role as a receiver out of the backfield during an intra-squad scrimmage on the third day of competition. At Purdue, he finished his career with 77 carries for 436 yards and three touchdowns and recorded 16 receptions for 188 yards and three scores. Assuming he sticks to fullback in Seattle, Cottom will join a position group that already includes Derrick Coleman and Will Tukuafu, each of whom saw starting snaps for the Seahawks last season.

Adams led West Georgia in tackles the past two seasons, including a team-high 92 takedowns (6.5 for loss) his senior year. He was college teammates with defensive end Tory Slater, who the Seahawks signed as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2015 draft.

To make room on the 90-man roster for Cottom and Adams, the Seahawks waived offensive guard Nate Isles and terminated the veteran contract of offensive guard C.J. Davis. Davis was not on an NFL roster last year after participating in training camp with the Seahawks, while Isles spent 2014 on Seattle's practice squad.
