Former UW Husky, Joe Toledo, One of Two Signed by Seahawks

After last week’s three-day minicamp, the Seattle Seahawks had some decisions to make, namely were any of the 15 players they brought in for a tryout worthy of sticking around past Sunday.

The answer was yes.

Seattle signed former Washington Husky Joe Toledo to add depth at the tackle position on the team’s offensive line, per the team’s Web site.  Toledo is a veteran tackle that was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round of the 2006 N.F.L. Draft, but never saw any regular-season playing time.  Since that season, he’s bounced around the league with stops in San Diego, San Francisco and Green Bay.

The team’s Web site also announced the addition of rookie free agent cornerback Chris Richards.  Richards went to school at Stony Brook (N.Y.) after spending his first two season (one was a redshirt season) in Ann Arbor, Mich. playing for the Michigan Wolverines.  At Michigan, Richards played in 11 games, primarily on special teams.  At Stony Brook, he earned second team All-Big South accolades both his redshirt junior and redshirt senior seasons.
