The Seahawks made a change at receiver Thursday, bringing back Jamel Johnson, who spent time with Seattle this offseason, and waiving Rodney Smith.

Johnson, 26, caught 28 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns in his final season at Alabama State before going undrafted in 2014. The 6-foot-3, 225-pounds receiver began his professional career as a member of the Green Bay Packers' practice squad in 2015, and has also spent time with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. He signed a future contract with Seattle following the conclusion of the 2016 season, then was waived in May.

Smith, 27, spent time on Seattle's practice squad last season, then signed a future contract in July. Smith previously spent time with Dallas, Minnesota and Cleveland.
