While rookie wideout Golden Tate and his obsession with maple bars is still much of the talk around the Seattle area, the team that selected him in the second round of the 2010 National Football League Draft, are making news of their own.
The Seattle Seahawks announced Wednesday that it signed two of its draft picks and two undrafted free agents, while releasing four players.
Tight end Jameson Konz and defensive end Dexter Davis came to terms with Seattle after both were taken in the seventh round of April’s Draft. Davis, taken 236th overall, is a product of Arizona State, while Konz was taken nine picks later at 245. Konz, out of Kent State, was originally drafted as a wide receiver by Seattle in April, but is listed on the team’s official Web site as a tight end.
Seattle also signed two undrafted rookie free agents. Defensive tackle Barrett Moen joins the Seahawks after spending four year as a Golden Gopher at the University of Minnesota. The other player joining the team is Will Tukuafu, a defensive end who played at the University of Oregon.
To make room for the four rookies, Seattle released safety Quinton Teal, wide receiver Patrick Carter, tight end Michael Allan and linebacker Kevin Dixon.
The transactions come five days after the team released wideout Mike Jones.
