In need of another healthy tight end, the Seahawks have signed free agent Kellen Davis and released linebacker Allen Bradford.

Coach Pete Carroll made the announcement Wednesday, a day after Seattle reportedly tried out three tight ends and nine players altogether. The Seahawks only had two tight ends on their 53-man roster. One of them, rookie Luke Willson, was banged up in Sunday’s opener, Carroll said.

Davis, 27, caught 47 passes and started 35 games over five seasons with the Bears, who drafted him in the fifth round out of Michigan State in 2008.

Bradford, a converted running back, made the team out of training camp and was listed as Seattle’s backup middle linebacker.
