With multiple receivers battling injuries, the Seahawks added depth at that spot Monday, signing former Dallas Cowboys receiver Lance Lenoir. Running back Patrick Carr was waived/injured to make room on the 80-man roster.
Lenoir, 25, came into the league as an undrafted free agent in 2017 following a prolific career at Western Illinois. In four seasons with the Leathernecks, Lenoir had 273 catches for 3,796 yards and 31 touchdowns, all school records, and had 14 100-yard games. Lenoir had more than 1,000 yards in each of his final three seasons at Western Illinois.
Lenoir spent most of his rookie season on Dallas' practice squad before appearing in one game late in the year. He appeared in seven games in 2018, primarily on special teams, then spent the 2019 season on injured reserve.
The Seahawks have been without three receivers in camp dating back to last week, with Phillip Dorsett II, John Ursua and Cody Thompson all battling injuries, though Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said all three have a chance to make it back this week. Lenoir is the second receiver signed by Seattle in the past three days, with 2014 second-round pick Paul Richardson returning to the Seahawks on Saturday.
Carr signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted rookie out of the University of Houston earlier this year. He would revert to Seattle's injured reserve list if he clears waivers on Tuesday.
