The Seahawks added a pair of receivers on Friday, signing Deontez Alexander, who came into the league as an undrafted rookie in 2018, and Kevin Kassis who went undrafted out of Montana State in 2020.

The Seahawks also waived four receivers: Matt Cole, Jake Herslow, John Mitchell and Demetris Robertson.

Alexander, who played at Division III Franklin College, first signed with the Lions as a rookie in 2018 and was in Detroit for multiple stints on the roster and practice squad over the next two seasons. At Franklin, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound Alexander averaged 101.6 yards per game over two seasons, catching 114 passes for 2,133 yards and 33 touchdowns.

Kassis finished his Bobcats career with 1,966 receiving yards and 152 receptions, both of which rank fourth all-time at Montana State.

Cole initially signed with the Seahawks practice squad late last season, then was signed to a future contract after the season ended. Herslow, Robertson and Mitchell all signed with the Seahawks as undrafted rookie free agents ahead of last week's rookie minicamp.
