Looking for Depth, Seattle Adds Two Former Trojans

According to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times, two former Trojans from the University of Southern California have earned spots on the Seahawks’ roster after trying out during this week’s three-day mini camp.

Wide receiver Mike Williams joins the team after being a college stand out and a bust in the pros.  He was drafted with the 10th overall selection in the 2005 N.F.L. Draft by Detroit and has spent time in Tennessee and Oakland as well.  Williams, listed at six-foot-five and 235 pounds, totalled just 44 catches and a mere two touchdowns in a combined 30 N.F.L regular-season games.

The other addition is fullback Ryan Powdrell.  Powdrell’s been in the pros two years, but hasn’t recorded any regular-season action.

Seattle’s only other fullback on its current roser, per O’Neil, is Owen Schmitt; however, the team’s official Web site still lists Justin Griffith as a member of the team.
