Seahawks announce 10 signings to fill out practice squad

Ferguson, a 6-foot-5, 228-pound product of Northwestern State, played in all four preseason games for the Seahawks, registering a catch in three of them. He finished the preseason with seven receptions for 119 yards and a touchdown. He also had one fumble.
Hollister, a 25-year-old tight end from Bend, Ore., was picked up in a trade from New England early in the offseason. He played the last three games of Seattle’s preseason slate, making four receptions for 28 yards and a touchdown.
