Report: Seahawks bring back Anthony McCoy on one-year deal
The Seahawks have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with tight end Anthony McCoy, who missed the last two seasons with separate Achilles injuries.
The agreement was reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
It comes two days after the Seahawks released starter Zach Miller, which leaves tight end as one of the thinnest spot on Seattle’s roster. The only other tight ends who are under contract for next season are Luke Willson, Cooper Helfet and RaShaun Allen. Tony Moeaki is set to become an unrestricted free agent.
McCoy, 27, was a sixth-round pick by Seattle in 2010.
It’s not known how much the deal is worth, but it will likely amount to a low-risk move for Seattle given McCoy’s recent injury history. He tore his right Achilles tendon during OTAs in 2013 then suffered the same injury to his left leg during training camp last year.
His first two seasons were marked by injuries and inconsistency before he seemingly started to turn the corner in 2012, catching 18 passes for 291 yards and three touchdowns as Miller’s backup.
