Seattle has signed a sixth player who participated in the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.
Deshon Foxx, a wide receiver out of the University of Connecticut, inked a deal with the Seahawks on Monday. He joins offensive guard Kona Schwenke, defensive end Julius Warmsley, linebacker Tyrell Adams, fullback Brandon Cottom, and defensive tackle T.Y. McGill as tryout players to sign in the Pacific Northwest following the three-day rookie workouts.
The 5-foot-10, 177-pound Foxx was a 12-game starter for the Huskies last year who also saw time at quarterback. He finished the season with 716 all-purpose yards, including 30 catches for 384 yards and 23 carries for 203 yards. He contributed on special teams as well, returning 10 punts for 81 yards and three kicks for 48 yards. Foxx's most productive year as a wideout came in 2013, when he made 43 grabs for 534 yards and two touchdowns.
To make room for Foxx on the 90-man roster, the Seahawks waived/injured running back Demitrius Bronson, who was dealing with what head coach Pete Carroll called a "nagging" hamstring injury during rookie minicamp. Bronson, a second-year player out of Eastern Washington University, spent 2014 on Seattle's practice squad.
