Welcome back Kevin Ellison.
The safety, brought in on a waiver claim June 22 and then put back on waivers two days later, rejoined the Seahawks for the second time in seven days today when he signed with the team. The Seahawks waived Ellison due to a failed physical. According to Seattle’s communications department, Ellison cleared waivers and was then signed “in order to adjust contractual issues.”
An Associated Press story that came out when Seattle initially brought Ellison in reported that the former starting safety for the San Diego Chargers was booked and released on $10,000 bail in May after 100 Vicodin pills were found in Ellison’s car during a search of his car after he was pulled over in Redondo Beach, Cali. for speeding in a school zone.
The second-year safety was a four-year letter winner at the University of Southern California for former USC and current Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.
