The Seahawks signed nose tackle Matthew Gotel, defensive end Hamilcar Rashed and linebacker Christian Young to their practice squad on Monday.
They fill the three spots on the practice squad that came open Saturday when linebacker Patrick O'Connell, safety Ty Okada and tackle Jake Curhan were signed from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
Gotel, a Tacoma native who played at Lakes High School, initially joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of the University of West Florida last year. In addition to spending time with the Seahawks in camp and on the practice squad each of the past two seasons, he also spent time last season with the Falcons, and also played for the San Antonio Brahmas of the XFL.
Rashed, who went undrafted out of Oregon State in 2021, recently spent time on the Seahawks practice squad this season, and previously has spent time with the Jets, Steelers and Buccaneers, appearing in one regular season game for the Jets in 2021. Young, who played safety at the University of Arizona, signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in May. He most recently spent time on the Packers' practice squad before being released in November.
