The Seahawks added to their tight end depth on Wednesday, signing Brady Russell off of Philadelphia's practice squad.

The Seahawks had an open roster spot, having waived linebacker Tyreke Smith earlier in the day.

Russell, an undrafted rookie out of Colorado, spent training camp with the Eagles before being waived as part of roster cuts and signed to the practice squad. Russell appeared in 49 games during his career at Colorado, finishing with 78 career catches for 799 yards and three touchdowns. After beginning his college career as a walk-on, Russell finished it as a team captain and the winner of the team's Buffalo Heart Award, an award created by and voted on by fans, which is given to the player who demonstrates grit, determination and toughness.

Additionally, the Seahawks signed safety Teez Tabor to the practice squad. Tabor, a former second-round pick, signed with Seattle last season and appeared in 10 games with one start.
