Seattle Signs Three Specialists, Defensive End

A few transactions took place this week, as Seattle signed two long snappers (Matt Overton and Pat McDonald) a punter (Tom Malone) and a defensive end (Rick Foley).

Matt Overton is a Western Washington product that spent this past season playing in the United Football League. The former Viking is 24.

Pat McDonald, 27, comes down from the Canadian Football League. In the C.F.L., McDonald spent time as a Winnepeg Blue Bomber and a Calgary Stampeder.

Punter Tom Malone joins a Seattle roster that already has an established leg in Jon Ryan. Malone played for new head coach Pete Carroll at the University of Southern California in 2002.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Seahawks added defensive end Rick Foley. Foley leaves the British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League, where he led the league last season in sacks with 12.
