The Seahawks continued adding to their defensive line on Monday, signing nose tackle LaTrell Bumphus, an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee.
Outside linebacker Chris Garrett was waived to make room on the 90-man roster.
Bumphus is the sixth nose tackle added by the Seahawks dating back to last month's draft along with Cameron Young, a fourth-round pick, Jonah Tavai and Robert Cooper, who signed as undrafted rookie free agents, and Forrest Merrill and Austin Faoliu, who were signed last week.
Bumphus, who is 6-foot-3, 280 pounds, began his college career as a tight end before moving to the defensive line after the 2018 season. He appeared in 55 career games, starting 24 while accumulating 66 tackles, 12 tackles for loss three sacks, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and two passes defensed.
Garrett, a seventh-round pick in 2021, joined the Seahawks' practice squad in January prior to Seattle's Wild Card game against the 49ers, then signed a reserve/future contract after the season ended.
With OTAs beginning on Monday, the Seahawks took the field to wrap up Phase 2 of the Offseason Program on May 19, 2023 at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
