Seahawks sign DL David King, release LB Allen Bradford
The Seahawks have added some depth to their defensive line by signing David King off the Bengals’ practice, releasing linebacker Allen Bradford to make room.
The team announced the move Thursday.
Seattle’s defensive-line rotation took a hit when Demarcus Dobbs injured his ankle against Philadelphia, sustaining what coach Pete Carroll called a “pretty severe” sprain. That characterization suggested Dobbs could be headed for season-ending injured reserve – and he may be eventually – but Seattle instead opened a roster spot by releasing Bradford, who had appeared in one game since he was signed off Cleveland’s practice squad last month.
King, 24, hasn’t appeared in a regular-season game since being drafted by Philadelphia in the seventh round in 2013, spending parts of the last two seasons on Cincinnati’s practice squad. He’s listed at 6 feet 4 and 300 pounds.
