The Seahawks brought back Luke Willson on Tuesday to bolster their tight end depth, but he decided to retire a day later. Still wanting depth at that spot, Seattle signed tight end Ian Bunting on Thursday, a Cal product who went undrafted in 2019.

Bunting, who is 6-foot-7, 255 pounds, signed with Chicago as an undrafted free agent in 2019 and was waived prior to the start of the regular season. He later spent time with the Jets and Colts on their practice squads, and most recently was with the Cardinals this offseason and in training camp before being waived earlier this week.

As a senior at Cal, Bunting had 18 catches for 195 yards. Before transferring to Cal, Bunting played at Michigan where he started eight of 34 career games played.
