Seahawks Add Marquee Free Agents

 

The Seattle Seahawks got better overnight with the additions of OL Robert Gallery from the Oakland Raiders and WR Sidney Rice from the Minnesota Vikings.Free agent week continues in the NFL, and the Seahawks have reached agreement with two of the more sought after players, OL Robert Gallery and WR Sidney Rice.

The 6-foot-7, 325-pound Gallery was the Raiders’ first-round draft choice in 2004. He started 91 games the past seven seasons – at right tackle, left tackle and left guard, where he has played since 2007.

With the Seahawks, Gallery, 31, will join an inexperienced starting unit that is expected to include Russell Okung, a first-round draft choice last year, at left tackle; Max Unger, a second-round pick in 2009, at center; and rookies John Moffitt and James Carpenter at right guard and right tackle. Carpenter and Moffitt were the team’s top two picks in the April NFL Draft.

Rice, 24, was the Vikings’ second-round draft choice in 2007. The 6-foot-4, 202-pound Rice caught 83 passes for 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns in 2009, when Rice was voted to the Pro Bowl. But he played in only six games last season because of a hip injury he got in the NFC Championship game in 2009.

 

The Seahawks also signed rookie kicker Wes Byrum from BCS Champ Auburn, to compete for the spot vacated when PK Olindo Mare agreed to join the Carolina Panthers.

Also, it was reported yesterday that WR  Brandon Stokely had agreed to join the Washington Redskins, but apparently Stokely has backed out of the deal.
