The Seahawks added defensive line depth to their practice squad on Wednesday, signing nose tackle Niles Scott.
Safety Elijah Benton was released to make room on the practice squad.
Scott, who is 6-foot-2, 320 pounds, first came into the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Division III Frostburg State in 2018, signing with San Francisco. He has also spent time with Denver, Cincinnati, Buffalo, Las Vegas, Tennessee and New England, most recently spending time on the Patriots' practice squad last month.
Scott appeared in six games with the Bengals in 2018, recording four tackles. As a senior at Frostburg State, Scott was a Division II All-American and named the D3Football.com All-East Region Defensive Player of the Year, recording 51 tackles, 10 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss in 13 games.
During Sunday's Seahawks vs. 49ers game, Seahawks players wore custom cleats to support the NFL's My Cause My Cleats campaign. These cleats are now up for auction, with proceeds benefitting the charities noted on each individual pair. Bid now: https://shwks.com/vqqvpr
