Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, March 3 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Seahawks Sign Mister Alexander

The Seahawks have added 6-foot-3, 252-pound linebacker Mister Alexander to their roster, the team confirmed this morning. 

Undrafted in 2011 out of Florida State University, Alexander, age 26, signed with the Houston Texans, where he tallied 12 tackles in 14 games through two seasons (2011-12). He played out the 2013 season with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League before returning to the NFL this past season, when he spent time on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' and Dallas Cowboys' practice squads. Alexander was released by the Cowboys last month.

In his final season with the Seminoles, Alexander made 14 starts and recorded a single-season career-high 56 tackles to go with 5.5 tackles for loss, one pass defensed, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and 1.5 sacks. According to [his FSU athletic bio]( "

At linebacker, the Seahawks have three players set to become free agents on March 10 - Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Malcolm Smith, special teams standout Mike Morgan, and veteran Heath Farwell, who spent 2014 in a coaching role after a preseason groin injury sent him to injured reserve.

Jermaine Kearse Reads Dr. Seuss

Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse was in his hometown of Lakewood, Wash. yesterday to read Dr. Seuss to students at Tillicum Elementary School.
