Seahawks sign tackle Darrell Brown to add depth to offensive line

The Seattle Seahawks open the 2017 NFL regular season on the road, facing off against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

The Seattle Seahawks announced another roster move, signing offensive lineman Darrell Brown and waiving safety Jordan Simone to make room on the 90-man active roster.

The Seahawks’ public relations department tweeted the news Monday morning.

Brown, a rookie tackle out of Louisiana Tech, brings much-needed depth to the offensive line that has been hindered by injuries throughout the first week of camp.

Germain Ifedi has not returned to practice since his fight with Frank Clark last Thursday. Rookie Justin Senior remains on the team’s physically unable to perform list and has yet to participate. Tackle Robert Myers suffered a “little tweak” and has also been sidelined from practice.

For Lousiana Tech, Brown started the last two seasons at left tackle. He spent rookie minicamp with the Jets as a tryout player.

Simone attended local Skyline High School in Sammamish. Undrafted out of Arizona State, he was signed to the Seahawks roster in May.
